Condo buyers snap into Place
A new southeast Calgary condo project by a seasoned multi-family developer is now about 75 per cent sold out.
Cranston Place is a condo and townhome complex by Cardel Lifestyles on Cranston Drive and Cranberry Road.
The development has sold 139 of its 187 units and is now selling in its third phase.
“We are moving quickly with construction and the majority of work will be completed this year — and considering we started work in 2012, that’s quite fast,” says Tim Logel, president of Cardel Lifestyles.
Logel says he’s heard a number of reasons why buyers are flocking to the development, including the burgeoning neighbourhood and its proximity to Fish Creek Provincial Park and the Bow River.
“Customers have responded positively to Cranston as a community,” says Logel. “The No. 1 item they mention, though, is the walk to Cranston Market.”
Boasting a number of shops and services, Cranston Market includes Sobeys, Petro-Canada, Berwick Public House, Subway and Good Earth Cafe, as well as many professional services such as a dentist, an optometrist and a veterinary clinic.
Another draw is the South Calgary Health Campus, a new hospital in Seton that’s within walking distance, says Logel. “My best guess is that 15 per cent (of buyers) work at the new hospital, but we are seeing more of those types of customers with each month.”
Cranston Place offers five floor plans consisting of two-bedroom, two-bathroom layouts, including the 896-square-foot Cranston, the 935-square-foot Bow, the 960-square-foot Bow 2, the 1,000-square-foot Fish Creek, and the 1,038-square-foot Fish Creek 2.
The development’s 10th Anniversary model offers two bedrooms and one bathroom in a 624-square-foot plan. The smallest option is the 624-square-foot Seton, which comes with one bedroom and one bathroom.
Cranston Place comes with other appealing standard features, including maple cabinets, Gypcrete concrete floors, a private patio or balcony, 3.25-inch baseboards, energy-efficient windows and brushed-chrome hardware.
A sales centre for the project is located at 302 Cranston Road S.E. It’s open 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays, and noon to 5 p.m. on weekends and holidays.
