Cedar­glen em­braces mar­ket in New Brighton

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

An award-win­ning builder is in the ap­proval process for its sec­ond condo de­vel­op­ment, af­ter launch­ing the mul­ti­fam­ily arm of the com­pany a year ago.

Cedar­glen Liv­ing, a di­vi­sion of Cedar­glen Homes, de­buted with a town­home project called The El­e­ments that opened sales in the north­west com­mu­nity of Panorama Hills last sum­mer. Panorama Hills is a com­mu­nity mas­ter-planned by Gen­star De­vel­op­ment Co. At press time, 101 of it 107 town­homes had been sold.

The builder is now seek­ing ap­proval from the city on a project planned for New Brighton in south­east Cal­gary. Cedar­glen Liv­ing’s gen­eral man­ager Cole Hag­gins says the New Brighton de­vel­op­ment will also be named The El­e­ments.

“We’ve built up a lot in New Brighton, with our (sin­gle­fam­ily home) prod­uct there, so it was just a nat­u­ral tran­si­tion to move into the multi-fam­ily (mar­ket) there as well,” says Hag­gins. He says the com­pany’s sin­gle-fam­ily di­vi­sion has a “strong re­fer­ral base” in New Brighton which should ben­e­fit the up­com­ing de­vel­op­ment. It is ex­pected to in­clude stacked apart­ments in four-storey build­ings and town­homes. If the com­plex is ap­proved by the city, Hag­gins says he’d like to start con­struc­tion this Septem­ber.

In Panorama Hills, the pop­u­lar­ity of the de­vel­op­ment was based on many fac­tors, in­clud­ing the project’s over­all ap­peal, says Hag­gins. Sim­i­lar to New Brighton, Cedar­glen has built many sin­gle-fam­ily homes in Panorama Hills. “We got a lot of re­fer­ral busi­ness be­cause of that,” adds Hag­gins.

“The fact that it was one of the last avail­able town­home lower-in­come type prod­ucts within the Panorama area def­i­nitely helped the sales,” Hag­gins notes.

The Panorama Hills sales cen­tre has closed, so Cedar­glen will look to sell the fi­nal six units through MLS or its New Brighton sales cen­tre. A fire at the site in early Jan­uary re­sulted in a set­back in de­vel­op­ment, but the project is back un­der con­struc­tion. First pos­ses­sions are ex­pected July 7.

Cedar­glen’s sin­gle-fam­ily di­vi­sion cur­rently builds in River­stone of Cranston, New Brighton, The Parks in Panorama Hills, Cranston and Auburn Bay.
