Wind­song in Air­drie is the first de­vel­op­ment for Mat­tamy Homes Ltd. in West­ern Canada.

The fully-in­te­grated com­pany, which is head­quar­tered in Toronto, opened its Air­drie doors in 2009 and was an in­stant suc­cess. To date, 500 sin­gle-fam­ily and multi-fam­ily homes have been sold in the Al­berta city.

Wind­song cov­ers 130 hectares in south Air­drie and when it is built out in sev­eral years, it will have 2,000 to 3,000 homes of all types.

Mat­tamy Homes of­fers mas­ter-planned com­mu­ni­ties with use­ful and fam­ily-friendly fea­tures such as parks, play­grounds and hik­ing/bik­ing trails.

The homes present a wide pro­file, so there are fewer homes per street and there­fore a less crowded, less hec­tic feel­ing through­out the neigh­bour­hood.

Mat­tamy uses what it calls even-flow de­vel­op­ment meth­ods, which cre­ate an or­derly process in which con­struc­tion on one street is com­pleted be­fore mov­ing on to the next. The com­pany also be­lieves in hav­ing plenty of ar­chi­tec­tural va­ri­ety in its com­mu­ni­ties, so the homes have a dis­tinc­tive, in­di­vid­ual look.

Part of that has to do with the use of set-back front porches and garages that of­fer a friend­lier look to the front el­e­va­tions of the homes.
