Cranston Ridge in south­east Cal­gary to be launched by Cardel Life­styles

JOSH SKAPIN Talk about nat­u­ral beauty. Some of Mother Na­ture’s most scenic touches to the Cal­gary land­scape are within sight of a new project by a sea­soned multi-fam­ily home­builder.

Cardel Life­styles is launch­ing Cranston Ridge on Nov. 2.

The com­plex fea­tures 256 apart­ments and 15 town­homes in Cranston, a south­east Cal­gary com­mu­nity mas­ter-planned by Brook­field Res­i­den­tial Prop­er­ties. Cranston is next to Fish Creek Pro­vin­cial Park and near the Bow River.

The aptly-named Cranston Ridge over­looks the river val­ley and has prime views of the Rocky Moun­tains.

“Views like this are rare for af­ford­able con­dos,” says sales and mar­ket­ing man­ager Brad Lo­gel. The homes start at $169,900, be­fore tax.

Most of the units have ti­tled un­der­ground park­ing and ad­di­tional sur­face park­ing stalls are avail­able for sale.


“Be­ing able to go for a walk along Cranston Ridge and ex­pe­ri­ence a dif­fer­ent life-size paint­ing ev­ery day is mag­i­cal and in­spir­ing,” says Lo­gel.

“Cal­gary is made up of peo­ple who have come here in part be­cause of the nat­u­ral beauty we’re so lucky to have. Once those views grab a hold of you, it’ll be hard to set­tle for any other lo­ca­tion.”

The project is within quick ac­cess to Deer­foot Trail and is just down the street from a small com­mer­cial site.

Most of the de­vel­op­ment con­sists of two-bed­room floor plans that come in six mod­els rang­ing from 654 to 1,039 square feet.

“Our thought process for our plans are that we want a down­town condo, but at the sub­ur­ban price in our mas­ter-planned com­mu­nity,” says Lo­gel.

“We do our very best to de­velop dif­fer­ent plans. Each plan of­fers some­thing dif­fer­ent for each type of per­son, whether you’re mov­ing down from a big house, or a year or two into your ca­reer job, or in­be­tween.”

The com­pany’s two-bed­room lay­out — which con­tains 897 square feet of space, in­clud­ing two bath­rooms — is the “most pop­u­lar plan com­pany-wide, wher­ever we build,” says Lo­gel.

The de­sign also of­fers larger kitchen op­tions with a full pantry.

“When you walk into this home — and, based on how we de­signed it, the use of space — and you go with the deluxe gourmet kitchen op­tion, there is as much kitchen cab­i­netry and counter space as we put in some sin­gle-fam­ily homes,” says Lo­gel.

“This is an ex­tremely liv­able condo plan.”

All floors in the build­ings in the project have soar­ing nine-foot ceil­ings. The apart­ments come with six ap­pli­ances and spa­cious pa­tio decks to take ad­van­tage of the views.

This is Cardel Life­styles’ sec­ond project in Cranston fol­low­ing a three-build­ing com­plex called Cranston Place. Floor plans in the new de­vel­op­ment are sim­i­lar to those in the pre­vi­ous com­plex.

Buy­ers in­ter­ested in Cranston Ridge are en­cour­aged to visit the ex­ist­ing show homes at Cranston Place, which is lo­cated at 302 Cranston Road S.E.

Re­tired cou­ple Shari and Bill Karns re­cently down­sized from a sin­gle-fam­ily home in another south­east Cal­gary sub­ur­ban com­mu­nity to an apart­ment at Cranston Place.

“We liked the way they were built,” says Shari, adding the qual­ity fin­ishes caught their eye.
