Condo buy­ers snap into Place

Calgary Herald - Calgary Herald New Condos - - New Condos - JOSH SKAPIN

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.
