For Laurie Gor­don, the first cou­ple of weeks as pres­i­dent of As­pire Condo Liv­ing by Jayman were a blur — al­beit an ed­u­ca­tional blur.

It in­cluded a tour of the com­pany’s multi-fam­ily de­vel­op­ments in Cal­gary and Ed­mon­ton, get­ting a feel for what was out there. What did she learn? “There are a lot of op­por­tuni- ties out there to do a lot of dif­fer­ent things,” Gor­don says from her new cor­po­rate digs in south­east Cal­gary. Shortly af­ter the whirl­wind tour, Gor­don had al­ready sketched out some pre­lim­i­nary ideas of what she might like to do mov­ing for­ward.

She wants to tackle more of what she calls Zone 2 de­vel­op­ment — a term for in­ner-city com­mu­ni­ties.
