Project works buyer magic

Mar­quis of SkyView Ranch in city

Calgary Herald - Calgary Herald New Condos - - New Condos -

Build it well, pro­vide the ameni­ties buy­ers want, price it right — and they will come.

That’s pretty much the busi­ness phi­los­o­phy of Tony Trutina, owner of Lionsworth­e Homes.

Once again, he’s putting that phi­los­o­phy to work in the com­pany’s lat­est project, Mar­quis of SkyView Ranch in the city’s north­east. “We’ve done well,” says Trutina from the job site. “We

C Mhaven’t been on the mar­ket all that long and we have al­ready sold about 30 per cent of the homes — and that’s been done with­out a show home, and with high spec­i­fi­ca­tion and some ag­gres­sive pric­ing.”

The Mar­quis is a group of 72 three-level town­houses of 1,210 to 1,320 square feet,

They are sep­a­rated into 13 build­ings of five and six homes per clus­ter on SkyView Ranch Way, the main street run­ning through this rapidly grow­ing com­mu­nity.

Prices range from $260,000 to $289,000, depend­ing on lo­ca­tion and size of the town­houses.

De­spite the re­cent bit­ter weather, the build­ings con­tinue to progress at var­i­ous stages, with the foun­da­tion for the sev­enth build­ing freshly poured.

With con­struc­tion on­go­ing, Trutina ex­pects to open a show home late this month or early in Jan­uary.

He ex­pects buyer pos­ses­sions to be­gin later in Jan­uary.

“We have done ex­cep­tion­ally well with other projects in SkyView — and the Mar­quis of­fers the same value and high specs, so we an­tic­i­pate con­tin­u­ing to do well here,” he says over the buzz of a power saw.

Homes in Mar­quis have three dif­fer­ent kitchen lay­outs, along with three up­per-floor de­signs — from a two-bed/two-bath home, or a dou­ble-mas­ter/twobath look, to a three-bed/twobath with loft lay­out.

Like a sim­i­lar Lionsworth­e town­house devel­op­ment in Ch­ester­mere, the floor plans for main and sec­ond floors are in­ter­change­able.

Among the stan­dards with each home are hard­wood floors on the main level, glass-tile kitchen back­splashes and five ap­pli­ances.

There’s also nine-foot main­floor ceil­ings and win­dow blinds, along with cabi­net choices and dou­ble-car at­tached garages. Other fea­tures in­clude deck or pa­tio, an up­per-floor laun­dry op­tion and a fi­bre-op­tics pack­age.

The sin­gle crowd, aged 18 to 35, has been show­ing the most in­ter­est in Mar­quis — most of whom are buy­ing for the first time, says Trutina. A cen­tral park area for the en­joy­ment of Mar­quis res­i­dents in­cludes ex­ten­sive land­scap­ing and gazebo.

The project con­tains 13 build­ings of five to six res­i­dences each.
