“With Yorkville’s lo­ca­tion nes­tled into the rolling foothills, it truly of­fers buy­ers pic­turesque beauty mixed with ap­pre­ci­ated and loved ameni­ties,” says Bar­rineau. “When Mat­tamy de­signs a com­mu­nity, we pay spe­cial at­ten­tion to what at­tracts peo­ple to an area and what will in­spire them to ex­plore.

“But above all, the goal is to build a sense of be­long­ing and at­tach­ment to the com­mu­nity for res­i­dents.”

Yorkville opened in June 2018 and progress has been steady in com­plet­ing amenity fea­tures.

“Since the l aunch, we have in­stalled the at­trac­tive en­trance fea­tures lo­cated on the north and south side of the pond which re­sem­ble three large curved totems,” says Bar­rineau. “The totems light up at night and serve as a wel­come to the com­mu­nity and pub­lic art in­ter­est pieces. Also, the nat­u­ral en­vi­ron­men­tal pond has pro­gressed sig­nif­i­cantly and opens fully come spring 2019.”

Homes i n Yorkville i nclude ur­ban town­homes, up to large fam­ily-size sin­gle-fam­ily homes, says Bar­rineau.

“The name Yorkville takes a page out of Toronto’s style book, with brown­stone-in­spired ar­chi­tec­ture — think strong, red brick and stone through­out,” he says. “The choice of homes in this com­mu­nity re­ally stands out and the fact you can re­ally fo­cus on what works for your bud­get and time frame is key.

“Yorkville proves that it’s pos­si­ble to live some­where that has both the nat­u­ral con­nec­tion of a home in the coun­try and the con­ve­nience of a home in the city. This unique Cal­gary com­mu­nity ex­tends a warm wel­come to po­ten­tial res­i­dents from all walks of life, from those seek­ing to buy their first house to those hop­ing to down­size from their cur­rent one.”

Yorkville is served by three great ac­cess roads, plus shop­ping and other ameni­ties are nearby.

“Im­me­di­ate ma­jor con­nec- tions in­clude Sher­iff King Street to High­way 22X, plus 194th & 210th Av­enues to Macleod Trail,” says Bar­rineau. “Lo­cal shop­ping and pro­fes­sional ser­vices are di­rectly across the street from Yorkville’s main en­trance in the Sil­ver­ado Shop­ping area, which fea­tures a gro­cery store, cof­fee shop, restau­rants, phar­macy, yoga, dry clean­ing, day­care and more.

“Close by are Spruce Mead­ows and a fu­ture soc­cer cen­tre, Sirocco and Her­itage Pointe Golf Cour­ses, Gra­nary Road In­ter­ac­tive Park, Mil­larville Mar­ket and Race Track, plus ma­jor shop­ping ar­eas can be found just 10 to 15 min­utes away.”

Yorkville fol­lows Mat­tamy’s for­mula for de­vel­op­ing suc­cess­ful com­mu­ni­ties, says Bar­rineau.

“We de­sign for nat­u­ral ameni- ties, such as creeks, wet­lands and parks, to en­sure we max­i­mize res­i­dents’ ac­cess to, and views of, these fea­tures,” he says. “The prox­im­ity to Canada’s Rocky Moun­tains, ex­pan­sive prairies and rolling foothills have in­spired the con­struc­tion, land­scap­ing and over­all con­cept at Yorkville, Mat­tamy Homes’ first planned com­mu­nity in south­west Cal­gary.”
