The great thing about Canals Landing, says Jesse Coderre of Genesis Land Development Corporation, is that it is a “little charming neighbourhood” that is close to important amenities.
“It’s comfortably ensconced as a community, so you’re not in and around the hustle and bustle of the town,” says the Genesis corporate marketing manager. “So it kind of feels like your own personal space. It has personality and it’s a little closed off but in a charming kind of way. At the same time it’s close enough that you can walk with the family to the grocery store.”
The hugely popular Airdrie community continues to attract streams of new buyers, and now there are new estate lots from which to choose, including some along the water in the 88- to-91-foot-wide range. The new lots are located in the northeast corner of the community along Canals Boulevard.
Two of the five builders present in Canals Landing have new estate showhomes on view. Westview Builders and Crystal Creek Homes had grand openings April 11. McKee Homes, ReidBuilt Homes and Genesis also continue to have a strong presence there.
Canals Landing is currently in Phase 6 of construction, which began in fall 2013.
The community was a finalist for the Canadian Home Builders Association-Calgary Region SAM (Sales and Marketing) Awards community of the year, with the winner announced April 18 at the Telus Convention Centre.
Crystal Creek’s new showhome, the Cameron, was also a finalist for best new home design in the $425,000-$489,000 category. It is a 2,973-square-foot home that can be seen at 427 Canals Blvd.
Westview’s new offering is the Lancaster, a 2,710-sq.-ft. model that has been adapted from the previously successful Arlington. It can be toured at 423 Canals Blvd.
Showhome hours for all five builders are typically Monday to Thursday, 2-8 p.m., and Saturdays, Sundays and holidays from noon to 5 p.m.
