West side story

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

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.
