Active families who believe their outdoor environment is as important as the right home.

That’s the vision for Lanark Landing, an impressive community being developed in the southeast corner of Airdrie.

Construction of the first phase began in 2019 with plans for a 10 year build out for the 160-acre community.



The community has not only well-designed housing, but also public places and open spaces designed to get people outdoors.

“Last year we built a one-acre park which included a playground structure, basketball court and seating area,” says Ruth Price, project co-ordinator for Melcor Developments Ltd., developer of the community.

“In July we are starting construction on Airdrie’s first pump track. Bikes and scooters can enjoy the pump track amenity that will also include conversation areas, picnic tables and a community garden.”

Lanark Landing offers kilometres of pathway connectivity, with parks planned all throughout the community to give ample outdoor space to enjoy.

An outdoor skating rink is also a stone’s throw away from the edge of Lanark Landing, and can be used for street hockey in the summer or skating in the winter.

Many schools are located close to the Lanark Landing community making it easy to take the kids to and from school each day. Kingsview Market is also a quick walk or drive to find all your daily needs.

Construction of the QEII overpass for 40th Avenue is scheduled to finish in October 2023. This will connect Lanark Landing directly with access to the QEII, making the drive to Calgary or CrossIron Mills easier than ever.



In Lanark Landing, there’s something for every price point: Castellano Custom Homes and Homes by Avi build front-drive single-family homes; Sterling Homes along with McKee Homes offer laned single-family homes; Douglas Homes and McKee Homes build townhomes; and Douglas Homes and Homes by Avi offer semi-detached homes.

Starting home prices are in the $400,000s.

“Diverse housing types will accommodate the wants and needs of a variety of home buyers, from those entering the market for the first time to empty nesters looking to downsize,” says Price.

As for style, comprehensive architectural guidelines by developers promote pleasing streetscapes. Inspired by modern prairie, farmhouse and brownstone styles, homes are built for the modern family.

“In Lanark Landing you will often see children playing, biking and setting up lemonade stands,” says Price.

“It’s the perfect place to come home to, right here in Airdrie.”
