Matthew Mackay has parachuted into home­own­er­ship. A con­struc­tion worker with hun­dreds of sky­dives un­der his belt, Mackay was ready to jump into the Mint project in New Brighton.

He was first in line with his down pay­ment. “I love the area,” he says. “I live just over in Cop­per­field and I love the area. There’s a hospi­tal be­ing built over there and it’s close to Deer­foot.

“It’s my first time (buy­ing a home) and I wanted a town­home — and I wanted a big town­home. I like space.”

Mackay bought the big­gest home in the de­vel­op­ment for $318,500.

At al­most 1,700 square feet, the two-storey corner unit has three bed­rooms up­stairs, a large great room and a two-car garage.
