A builder known for its eco-friendly homes is bring­ing a new multi-fam­ily project to Cochrane.

Land­mark Homes has opened pre-sales on town­houses in the com­mu­nity of Fire­side. This is the builder’s first such de­vel­op­ment in the town.

The project is in Fire­side Park­way on a stretch of land that faces west.

It will be of­fer­ing 29 town­houses start­ing from the $295,900s and fea­tures one stan­dard model called the Lancaster.

At 1 , 3 3 8 s quare f eet , it con­tains t hree bed­rooms a nd t wo- a nd- a - hal f bath­rooms. But i t can a l s o come i n a t wo- bed­roompl us- l of t ori en­tati on.

“They will be en­ergy eff icient and use all our reg­u­lar tech­niques,” says mar­ket­ing co- or­di­na­tor Stuart Wen.

The en­ergy ef­fi­ciency comes through fram­ing tech­niques, a pro­gram­mable ther­mo­stat, En­ergy Star ap­pli­ances, along with triple-pane win­dows, lowflow shower heads and faucets, and en­ergy ef­fi­cient light bulbs.

In the base­ment, town­houses have a high-ef­fi­ciency fur­nace, 95 per cent ef­fi­ciency tan­k­less wa­ter heaters, and drip hu­mid­i­fiers.

The homes boast Crafts­man-style de­tail­ing with shin­gles and gables in a de­sign Wen calls “wellap­pointed.”

All town­houses have decks and come fully land­scaped. They also have Fire­side Blvd. Fire­side is a com­mu­nity mas­ter-planned by La Vita Land in south Cochrane. Along with town­houses, Fire­side fea­tures vil­las, du­plexes and sin­gle-fam­ily homes.
