Adrian Gaska is no stranger to the up­side of an in­ner-city com­mu­nity in south­west Cal­gary. He worked for a company that pro­vided plas­tic mov­ing boxes and in this role made a num­ber of trips to Cur­rie Bar­racks.

“I have been look­ing at the com­mu­nity for years,” Gaska says. “It’s a re­ally good area.”

Cur­rie Bar­racks’ first phase fea­tured high-end sin­gle-fam­ily homes and re­cently it opened sales on four multi-fam­ily projects, in­clud­ing Axess at Cur­rie Bar­racks by Slokker Canada West.

The other multi-fam­ily projects are by Avi Ur­ban, Jay­man Mo­dus and Cove Prop­er­ties.

Gaska is now set to move to a twobed­room condo apart­ment at Axess with his girl­friend, Ally Gordey.

The de­vel­op­ment of­fers stu­dio apart­ments from the $240,000’s, one-bed­room apart­ments from the low $300,000’s and onebe­d­room plus den units from the $350,000’s. There are also two-bed­room units from the $350,000’s and town­homes from the $550,000’s.

Gaska says he saw this price range as an op­por­tu­nity. “It opened the doors for other peo­ple to get in,” Gaska says.

The pric­ing at condo apart­ments and town­homes in Cur­rie Bar­racks, he adds, lets buy­ers find their first home be­fore turn­ing to some­thing big­ger when they reach that stage in life.

“It’s a com­mu­nity where you can start off with some­thing small and live there your en­tire life prac­ti­cally,” Gaska says. “There’s ev­ery step from starter to full es­tate-size beau­ti­ful home.”

Gaska says he likes that Cur­rie Bar­racks of­fers its res­i­dents quick ac­cess to the city’s ma­jor road­ways, mak­ing it easy to easy to travel any­where in Cal­gary.

“For our fu­ture, no mat­ter what you’re do­ing in the city, whether you’re work­ing down­town or go­ing to school, it’s right there,” Gaska says. “It’s good for both of us.”

In to­tal, Axess will be com­prised of 200 units re­leased in two phases. This in­cludes apart­ment-style con­dos across four build­ings.

“When we were go­ing through the buy­ing process, there (wasn’t the need) for many op­tions,” Gaska says. “It was all there.”

Stan­dard fea­tures in­clude a stain- less-steel ap­pli­ance pack­age and gas stove, wood-plank floor­ing, porce­lain tile in the en­try­way, bath­rooms and laun­dry room and large bal­conies and ter­races.

The units range in size from 540-square-foot stu­dios to town­homes that mea­sure 1,278 square feet. The town­homes come in a three bed­room and 2 ½-bath­room ori­en­ta­tion.

“Lo­ca­tion, open-con­cept floor plans and great in­te­rior de­sign, ur­ban life­style and af­ford­able pric­ing have drawn many peo­ple to our de­velop- ment,” says sales as­so­ciate Tanya Miedema.

Con­struc­tion at Axess is ex­pected to start in spring 2015 with first pos­ses­sions slated for fall 2016. A sales cen­tre is lo­cated at 2953 Bat­tle­ford Ave. S.W. It’s open 2 to 8 p.m. Mon­day through Thurs­day and noon to 5 p.m. on week­ends and hol­i­days.
