A town­home project with no condo fees is on its way to a new com­mu­nity in south­east Cal­gary.

Homes by Avi launches sales at Legacy Street Towns in the com­mu­nity of Legacy to­day.

This de­vel­op­ment fol­lows a num­ber of fee sim­ple town­home com­plexes by the builder, in­clud­ing sites in Ma­hogany and Evan­sRidge in Cal­gary and Sun­set Ridge in Cochrane.

“We’ve done this in a lot of ar­eas be­cause the land use has al­lowed it and it has been what people have wanted,” says sales man­ager Karl Bursnell.

“This means when there’s a buyer buy­ing a property, they don’t have to fac­tor in that ex­tra ex­pense in when look­ing for get­ting their mort­gage ap­proval.”

Buy­ers also own the lot their home is on, mak­ing it sim­i­lar to buy­ing a sin­gle-fam­ily home, he adds.

“The buyer re­ally en­joys the flex­i­bil­ity of hav­ing a sin­gle­fam­ily home but at a great price point,” Bursnell says. The project is com­prised of 55 units, with prices start­ing in the mid$300,000s.

These units range from 1,280 to 1,386 square feet and are of­fered in four floor plans. One of the plans is de­signed as an end unit.

“We are ex­pect­ing them to be sought-af­ter by people that are start­ing, young cou­ples, but also people that are down­siz­ing and just want­ing to have a place to stay away from condo fees,” says Bursnell.

All units come with a three bed­room sec­ond floor ori­en­ta­tion, while some are avail­able with two mas­ter bed­rooms and a loft.

Depend­ing on the floor plan, kitchens in these homes have ei­ther a cen­tral, U-shaped or Lshaped de­sign. The units come with a rear garage, rear deck and pri­vate, fenced yard.

“We are go­ing to have qual­ity fin­ish­ing to start with, so that’s go­ing to in­clude lam­i­nate floor­ing, gran­ite coun­ter­tops or quartz, stain­less steel ap­pli­ances and then you have the op­tion to choose from one of three colour pal­ettes, within those as well,” says Bursnell. The ap­peal of the ex­te­rior of these homes is an­other im­por­tant de­tail, he adds.

“They have strong ar­chi­tec­tural de­tail­ing in Legacy and we are ob­vi­ously car­ry­ing that across on these street towns.” This means use of stone built-in win­dow boxes and many of the units have a front porch.

Legacy is a com­mu­nity mas­ter­planned by WestCreek De­vel­op­ments. The com­mu­nity was a fi­nal­ist in the cat­e­gories Com­mu­nity of the Year-City of Cal­gary and New Com­mu­nity of the Year at this year’s Cal­gary Re­gion SAM (Sales and Mar­ket­ing) Awards.
