Parkland, running paths, quick access to downtown — and a new townhome project — in Parkdale.
Park, Bow River and pathways nearby
It is once again all about location — and that isn’t likely to change. After all, this particular location is one of the city’s finest. It’s just steps to the Bow River and its extensive pathway system that takes you all the way downtown and beyond.
It’s a short walk across the bridge to Edworthy Park, an even bigger opportunity to enjoy nature right on the doorstep.
The project is also a short drive to the Foothills and Alberta Children’s hospitals and Market Mall.
Parkdale in northwest Calgary is a desired inner-city neighbourhood.
So it only makes sense that new developments in the community put infill living in the same class as the location.
Metrocore Developments knows this. The company has built some luxury homes and multi-family complexes in many inner-city locations, including Parkdale.
But its latest venture is different. Located at 535 33 St. N.W., the development consists of 10 town houses with underground, secured parking for all.
Four of the units have direct access to the parkade, which also includes two guest parking stalls.
These units have large patios with poured aggregate flooring and stairs down to the common area, which is grassed and has mature trees and shrubs.
The front townhouses have balconies off the master bedroom with great views of the surrounding area.
The units each have acrylic stucco and natural brick facades to fit into the traditional neighbourhood design — yet inside, the contemporary design leaves no stone unturned.
Wide-open floor plans have high ceilings and luxury appointments at every turn.
The staircase to the upper levels, for example, are hugging the wall to the left of the entry in the show home — and it is bordered with thick glass partitions to further enhance the open appeal.
“It provides a seamless entry to the second floor,” says developer Shujaat Chawdhry.
From the foyer, the great room is directly right — and the built-in wall treatment is the definite focal point of the room.
Open shelves surround the spectacular fireplace tile treatment that is three different sizes of small, mosaic glass tiles that carry right up to the ceiling and across it in a canopy.
The hard wiring for the flat screen TV is above the fireplace.
The wiring carries throughout the house in a sophisticated hightech system that allows homeowners to do everything — including watching security cameras outside the building at various viewpoints, setting the temperature, and organizing all other electronics such as the TV and sound system.
