Ar­mory joins ranks of Cur­rie Bar­racks’ ex­cit­ing re­birth

Cove Prop­er­ties of­fers con­dos at her­itage site

Calgary Herald - Calgary Herald New Condos - - New Condos - CLAIRE YOUNG DI­REC­TIONS:

Cove Prop­er­ties launches sales to­day for The Ar­mory, a new 58unit con­do­minium de­vel­op­ment in Cur­rie Bar­racks.

The name of the four-storey build­ing honours the his­tory of the com­mu­nity, the re­de­vel­op­ment of the for­mer CFB Cal­gary base by Canada Lands Co.

“We wanted to re­spect the mil­i­tary her­itage of the Cur­rie Bar­racks de­vel­op­ment,” says Doug Mazurek, pres­i­dent of Cove Prop­er­ties Ltd. The Ar­mory is set at a choice lo­ca­tion of the de­vel­op­ment, on Burma Star Road S.W.

“We back onto the Cur­rie Bar­racks’ his­toric gar­dens which is beau­ti­ful. It’s a her­itage site, so it will never change, we’ll al­ways back onto those gar­dens,” says Mazurek.

Cove has plans for an at­trac­tive build­ing with spa­cious units.

“With the ar­chi­tec­tural guide­lines, ev­ery­one is held to a re­ally high stan­dard. It re­ally is giv­ing me the abil­ity to do some­thing spe­cial,” Mazurek says.

The build­ing’s plans are sim­i­lar to those of the cur­rent Cove Prop­er­ties de­vel­op­ment, Kin­cora Sum­mit, in the city’s north­west, but with a dif­fer­ent feel.

“It’s a very con­tem­po­rary look­ing build­ing, less Rocky Moun­tain crafts­man than Kin­cora Sum­mit,” Mazurek says of The Ar­mory. “I didn’t want it too ul­tra-mod-look­ing be­cause (The Ar­mory) is not down­town. We have that con­tem­po­rary flat roof, and big over­hang off the front end of it.”

The Ar­mory fea­tures a bricked base, with brick pan­els run­ning up to the sec­ond and third floors, along with acrylic stucco and real fir tim­ber ac­cents. Over­sized metal-clad win­dows tinted a cus­tom green will fin­ish the ex­te­rior ap­pear­ance.

Homes range in size from one bed­rooms at 645-square feet to three-bed­room pent­houses with 1,700-square feet. The two-bed­room units, rang­ing in size from about 1,000-to-1,200 square feet, come with dens or flex rooms. Homes start in the low $270,000s. The units all have nine-foot ceil­ings. On the fourth floor, the homes will have 10-and12-foot ceil­ings. All units will have air-con­di­tion­ing, quartzite coun­ter­tops and stain­less steel ap­pli­ances.

There will be a va­ri­ety of floor­ing op­tions avail­able, in­clud­ing tile, hard­wood and car­pet. Each unit will come with a heated un­der­ground park­ing space with a stor­age locker.
