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.
