DEN­SITY: Pent­houses

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

Its pent­houses are more than 1,500 square feet.

Deib­ert says Cham­pagne is a low-den­sity de­vel­op­ment crafted for buy­ers who want a smaller space but don’t want to com­prise life­style.

“They don’t feel the down­siz­ing means they have to give up a high level of liv­ing,” he says.

In ad­di­tion to down­siz­ers — or as Deib­ert says, “right-siz­ers” — Cham­pagne has seen in­ter­est from pro­fes­sion­als who work at one of the many of­fices in Quarry Park.

“For them, it isn’t to down­size, it’s to sim­plify their life­style,” he says.

Many peo­ple from this range of buy­ers like the idea of be­ing able to walk to work. “They’re ac­tive and they don’t want to spend their time on main­te­nance,” says Deib­ert.

That low-main­te­nance life­style works for the Ge­orges, who can now go on hol­i­days with­out need­ing friends to take care of house­hold du­ties.

“If we went in the win­ter, we had to get some­one to shovel the snow and no­body likes shov­el­ling snow,” says Ken.

“All of that will be gone. We will lock, close the door, go to the air­port and go wher­ever we want.”

Liv­ing in Quarry Park is one of the big­gest at­trac­tions for buy­ers at Cham­pagne, says Sei­del.

“Peo­ple are so im­pressed by what it has turned into,” she says, call­ing it a com­mu­nity where peo­ple can live, work and play.

It fea­tures com­mer­cial de­vel­op­ment — in­clud­ing restaurant­s and shops — a high stan­dard for ar­chi­tec­ture, and prox­im­ity to the Bow River.

The Ge­orges’ apart­ment will look over the river, along with green space that in­cludes path­ways.

Ken says he and Maria look for­ward to en­joy­ing the view from their bal­cony and mak­ing use of the nearby out­door ameni­ties.
