A new condo de­vel­op­ment in south­east Calgary has sparked plenty of early in­ter­est from home buy­ers.

Af­ter launch­ing last Novem­ber, Edi­son in Walden has sold out its first three of 20 build­ings.

Edi­son is a stylish pro­ject boast­ing three-storey town­homes by multi-fam­ily builder Avi Ur­ban. Its name was in­spired by famed in­ven­tor Thomas Edi­son, who came up with the elec­tric light bulb.

“Home­own­ers have cho­sen Edi­son be­cause they value great de­sign in a highly mod­ern neigh­bour­hood,” says sales and mar­ket­ing man­ager Chris Pollen.

Walden is known for its con­tem­po­rary streetscap­e and is mas­ter-planned by Gen­star De­vel­op­ment Corp.

Pollen says buy­ers are also drawn to Edi­son be­cause of its stan­dard fea­tures, which in­clude a two-car garage and drive­way, and airy nine-foot ceil­ings on the main floor.

There are also doors that give each unit per­son­al­ity, he says. “The abil­ity to choose the colour of their front door has also been a ma­jor ap­peal for our home­own­ers, be­cause they get to per­son­al­ize their home and make it their own,” says Pollen.

The kitchens have full­height back­splashes made of glass mo­saic tiles. They also in­clude a full ap­pli­ance pack­age and ex­tended-height cus­tom cab­i­nets.

Town­homes range from the 1,130-square-foot Saf­fron model to the 1,400-square­foot Carmine cor­ner home. Th­ese homes start from the $260,000s.

“In Edi­son at Walden, we’re see­ing a real mix of buy­ers, from sin­gle pro­fes­sion­als pur­chas­ing their first home to re­tirees who are look­ing for that low-mainte- nance life­style,” says Pollen.

Edi­son will break ground this month. A sales cen­tre for the pro­ject is at 285 Walden Drive S.E. It’s open Mon­days through Thurs­days from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. and week­ends from noon to 5 p.m.
