CRANSTON: Some new units will have moun­tain views

Calgary Herald - Calgary Herald New Condos - - New Con­dos -

“It’s a beau­ti­ful lay­out. I love that you walk into this beau­ti­ful, bright kitchen and you’ve got your liv­ing area cen­trally lo­cated, so it gives more of an open-con­cept-type feel for a condo, which makes it feel a lit­tle bit big­ger.”

Go­ing the two-bed­room route made sense from a num­ber of an­gles. For now, the sec­ondary bed­room will serve as a guest room.

“I’ve got friends and fam­ily that can come and stay,” she says. “From an in­vest­ment stand­point, down the road, if I do de­cide to rent it out it’s eas­ier to rent out a twobed­room condo.”

Con­dos at Cranston Ridge are of­fered in four in­te­rior colour pack­ages. Stan­dard fea­tures in­clude nine-foot ceil­ings, kitchens with an ap­pli­ance pack­age, a full-height back­splash, dou­ble stain­less-steel sink and chrome sin­gle-han­dle faucet. The win­dows are low-e, where e stands for emis­siv­ity, a mea­sure of en­ergy loss. The car­pet has an eight-pound un­der­lay and there’s linoleum in the kitchen, laun­dry room, bath­rooms and en­try.

“As a de­signer, I have pretty high stan­dards, for sure,” Wil­liams says. “When I went in and saw what all my op­tions were, I was go­ing over in my mind how I could cus­tom­ize it in a way that would be per­fectly me. An hour later, I was set­ting up a time for a pur­chase agree­ment. So I was def­i­nitely im­pressed.”

Cranston Ridge is lo­cated be­tween two park ar­eas and is across from a path­way that leads to Fish Creek Provin­cial Park. Its third build­ing, con­sist­ing of 56 units, is ex­pected to launch sales this fall. There are five build­ings in to­tal. The third build­ing is slated to of­fer pric­ing on two-bed­room con­dos rang­ing from $209,900 to $339,900, be­fore tax. Some of these units have views of the Rocky Moun­tains says Brad Lo­gel, sales and mar- ket­ing man­ager. “Cranston is pretty much fully de­vel­oped,” Lo­gel adds. “It’s got the schools, the shop­ping, the com­mu­nity as­so­ci­a­tion.”

Set­tling into an al­ready-es­tab­lished com­mu­nity was “ap­peal­ing as a home­buyer,” Wil­liams says.

Her new place is in the first build­ing and she’s slated to take pos­ses­sion in Jan­uary.

“I wasn’t set on buy­ing, so I was look­ing to keep my op­tions open,” Wil­liams says. “I just thought I would stop by the sales cen­tre and the lo­ca­tion ob­vi­ously was fan­tas­tic.”

Cranston Ridge sells out of a sales cen­tre at 302 Cranston Road S.E. The com­mu­nity is mas­ter-planned by Brook­field Res­i­den­tial and boasts a wide range of hous­ing op­tions, in­clud­ing var­i­ous multi-fam­ily op­tions, starter homes, move-up homes and es­tate homes.

Cranston Ridge is Cardel Lifestyles’ sec­ond de­vel­op­ment in the com­mu­nity. Its first was Cranston Place, which at press time, was 97 per cent sold out. Cardel Lifestyles also has de­vel­op­ments in var­i­ous stages of sales in Sage Hill and Panorama Hills in north­west Cal­gary.
