Living to Mahogany
And a host of amenities on site
food included. And we have independent living, again on leases. The building is now open, with two restaurants, one open to the public and one just for Journey Club residents.”
Westman Village is akin to an all-inclusive resort, with a full slate of wanted and needed amenities.
“The commercial amenities we have so far are a coffee shop, eateries, pharmacy, dental, wine/beer boutique, spin and yoga club and we’re in talks with a dry cleaner, ice cream shop, optometrist and esthetics boutique,” says Westman. “We’ll have three restaurants on site, and the amenity centre has a huge workout gym, waterslide, woodworking shop, arts and crafts shop, billiards room, party room, golf simulator, a botanical garden, demo kitchen for teaching, a theatre for movies and speakers’ series, an activities gym for pickle ball or basketball, floor hockey, an outside heated deck and so much more.
“All are available and included for homeowners, except if you’re buying a coffee or whatever and if you’re booking a room for a private function. We also have 10 suites that residents can book for friends or family to come and stay i n a nd we’ re the only multifamily community in Calgary on a lake with substantive water features throughout.”
Bad weather is not a hindrance.
“Roughly 90 percent of t he housing is connected by underground passageways and/or skywal k s to the amenity centre,” says Westman. “It is interesting to see the culture and sense of community that has already developed. People come out and they’re impressed. They’ve never seen anything like it, because, there is nothing like it.”
