Calgary Herald New Condos - - New Condos -

range of hous­ing op­tions.

One-bed­rooms be­tween 581 and 718 square feet start from $291,900 to $359,900. The largest two-bed­rooms with den range from 909 to 1,124 square feet and are priced from $469,900 to $479,900.

The first phase of­fers 70 homes un­der $399,900. Condo fees are not yet set.

“The suites are grownup suites,” says Ben Smith, vice-pres­i­dent of sales and mar­ket­ing for Bridge­land Cross­ings. “There’s room for a king-size bed, and full-size fridges and stoves, which isn’t al­ways typ­i­cal in con­dos th­ese days.”

The units have el­e­ments Smith refers to as “fu­ture­proof ” to meet mod­ern needs.

“We are of­fer­ing a bunch of really ex­cit­ing features that I haven’t seen in con­dos be­fore,” says Smith.

Nest Learn­ing Ther­mostats are in­stalled in each unit. The smart ther­mo­stat learns liv­ing pat­terns from its users, help­ing re­duce en­ergy use, and it can be pro­grammed.

Monthly en­ergy re­ports help homeowners re­fine their pro­gram­ming. The Nest can also be con­trolled re­motely through a smart phone app.

The elec­tri­cal out­lets in the bed­rooms and kitchen come with ex­tra USB plug­ins to charge phones and tablets while still be­ing able to keep the lamps plugged in.

Other features in­clude tubes to hide ca­bles for me­dia on walls, wool car­pet­ing in bed­rooms, mo­tion sen­sors for lights in walk-in clos­ets and air con­di­tion­ing.

Be­ing part of The Bridges’ tran­sit-ori­ented devel­op­ment means be­ing com­mit­ted to “car-less” (as in less car, not no car) liv­ing.

Bridge­land Cross­ings is on the doorstep of the Bridge­land CTrain, and bus routes. It’s walk­a­ble to down­town.
