Light­house Land­ing bea­con for buy­ers

When Tim Lo­gel walked with his daugh­ter through an empty lot in Coven­try Hills in 2004, it didn’t take long to see its po­ten­tial.

The pres­i­dent of Cardel Life­styles says he saw value in ex­ist­ing nearby ameni­ties and a “vi­sion for the project be­gan to for­mu­late in my mind.”

That project was Light­house Land­ing, a condo de­vel­op­ment that sold its last unit ear­lier this month af­ter opening for sales in 2005.

“The de­vel­op­ment was our most suc­cess­ful so far in our 10-year his­tory,” says Lo­gel.

Light­house Land­ing in­cludes 304 con­dos units in five build­ings and 207 town­house units over 27 blocks in a New Eng­land theme.

“We spent con­sid­er­able time mak­ing sure the floor plans were the best de­sign we could build so that go­ing for­ward the cus­tomers who would have a home they would love,” says Lo­gel.

Light­house Land­ing in­spired lay­outs in the builder’s later de­vel­op­ments, such as Prest­wick Place, Panorama West, Cranston Place, River­side towns and Ranchview Vis­tas, he says.

Con­dos in the de­vel­op­ment range from 765 to 1,000 square feet in a se­lec­tion of four mod­els, while town­homes range from 1,260 to 1,365 square feet in three mod­els.

Prices in the de­vel­op­ment are from $175,00 to $350,000.

A grand opening was held for a new re­lease of mod­els in 2007, at­tract­ing an av­er­age of 750 groups to its sales cen­tre each month, which Lo­gel says is “tremen­dous in­ter­est in one de­vel­op­ment.”

The de­vel­op­ment’s prox­im­ity to the Cardel Place re­cre­ation fa­cil­ity, along with ac­cess to tran­sit and the air­port, ap­pealed to buy­ers.

An­other stand­out fea­ture for buy­ers is Light­house Land­ing’s un­der­ground park­ing.

“Be­ing able to get into a warm car in a Cal­gary win­ter weather is a big plus,” says Lo­gel.

Light­house Land­ing is on a site with parks and ex­ten­sive path­ways that lead to a light­house and gazebo, which he says was “a big hit with buy­ers.”

When Cardel Life­styles fin­ished de­vel­op­ment on Light­house Land­ing, there were “vir­tu­ally no re­sale units for sale,” says Lo­gel.
