West side story
While construction and sales continue on Cove Properties’ two glass and steel Nuera highrise apartment condo buildings on First Street S.E. — and the threebuilding Monarch apartment condo in McKenzie Towne — the company has taken a fancy to Calgary’s west side.
In the latter part of 2010, a year Hamdon describes as “very busy,” Cove Properties purchased two sites.
They’re along 85th Street S.W. between Bow Trail and Old Banff Coach Road — one of the faster growing areas of the city.
The f irst site is a four-hectare property at the end of Bow Trail at 85th Street called Aspen Highlands, which will be home to 60 villas and townhouses.
“We like the site very much, as do people who have visited us here,” says Hamdon, who recently visited the site with Klapstein. “Since we opened the sales and information centre in October, we’ve taken 25 reservations.”
Including the basement level, villas are 2,766 to 3,648 square feet, while the townhouses are 2,376 to 2,517 square feet.
