Redstone Plaza will enhance neighbourhood conveniences
Restaurant, liquor outlet among stores already committed to shopping area
The northeast community of Redstone continues its rapid expansion with news of another neighbourhood amenity.
Qualico Communities, developer of Redstone, has announced that a long-anticipated commercial plaza will open in March 2019 on Redstone Drive and Redstone Boulevard N.E.
The plaza will serve thousands of residents who have been waiting for local shopping and services.
“Convenience is key and this is going to be great. I’ve been in the area for a while and knowing I can walk over to the plaza with the kids in the summer evenings to grab a treat, or some pizza, that’s awesome,” says Redstone resident Harjit Randhawa.
“It’s exciting and it’s going to be well-received,” he adds.
“There are seniors in Redstone who help with grandkids while parents are at work, and the fact that they can walk over to grab what they need and have access to medical services easily is fantastic.”
Redstone Plaza, currently under construction by Groundshakers Commercial, has commitments from a pizza restaurant, liquor store, pharmacy and a 4,000-square-foot independent grocer. The plaza will have 45 parking stalls and include a medical clinic, a physiotherapy clinic with chiropractic care and massage. The location is on a Calgary Transit bus route.
Marketing co-ordinator Laura Field says Redstone, located east of Metis Trail N.E. and south of Stoney Trail, is one of Calgary’s fastest-growing and fastest-selling communities and a 2017 BILD finalist for Community of the Year. She says the variety of housing types, the green spaces, parks and access to major roadways are the main selling features of the area.
Redstone is approximately 80 per cent complete and together with other northeast neighbourhoods, such as Savanna and Cornerstone, is supporting the warehouse and manufacturing employment hubs of the northeast that are the result of airport expansion.
“Residents truly love Redstone and now with the plaza located right within the community, residents will have even more reason to feel at home,” says Field.
Other amenities in the diverse community include more than 2.3 km of pathways that connect with the Rotary/Mattamy Greenway: the Participark with outdoor fitness equipment, basketball net and playgrounds. Future plans include an LRT stop and two future school sites.
Field says at final build-out there will be 3,500 homes and Qualico will have planted 2,500 trees in the community.
There are 11 builders participating in Redstone, with duplexes priced from the $380,000s and single-family homes starting in the $385,000s and front garage models priced from the $500,000s. Builders include Broadview Homes, Jayman Built, NuVista Homes, Shane Homes, Trico Homes and Pacesetter by Sterling Homes.
Townhomes start from the $240,000s in Redstone, available from Partners Development Group, Streetside Developments, Avalon Master Builders and Jayman Built.
In addition to Redstone, Qualico is developing other Calgary communities including Crestmont West, Crestmont View, Silverado, Harmony in Springbank, and Ravenswood in Airdrie.
Communities planned for the near future include Dawson’s Landing in Chestermere and Rivercrest in Cochrane.
Redstone Plaza will open in March 2019 with an independent grocer along with other stores and services, including a medical clinic and pharmacy.
