Whether you’re gaining square footage or downsizing your living space, you’ll be levelling up and living your biggest lifestyle in Lanark Landing.

Located in Airdrie’s southeast, this community is well designed to accommodate an active outdoor lifestyle.

“Kilometres of pathways connect the community to ponds, pergolas, parks, playgrounds, picnic areas, firepits and even an outdoor amphitheater,” says Alan Boucher, regional manager with Melcor Developments.

“Residents enjoy baseball diamonds, basketball courts and multiple soccer fields. The pathways connect to the regional path network.”


On track

Boucher adds that the team is pleased to announce plans for the development of a pump track within the community. A pump track is a circuit of rollers, banks and turns for bicycle riders to ride through, ‘pumping’ along the hills to gain momentum.

“It’s similar to a skate park but it’s specifically designed for bikes,” says Boucher.

“It’s a fun feature that we think will add value and will be particularly enjoyed by the youth within the community.”

Construction of the pump track has not yet started but Melcor is hoping it will be ride ready by 2022. The track area is 2,015 square metres and may include a community garden. The length of the main track is 155 metres and the beginner track is 45 metres for a total of 200 metres.


Up front

The community also boasts two new front-drive showhomes that start in the high $400,000s.

Castellano Custom Homes’ Braemar Farmhouse comes in at 2,330 square feet and includes a cutting-edge modern design inside and out.

With a glass demising wall between the heart of the home and the office, open-concept kitchen, nook and family room design as well as a “secret room,” this house is built to amaze.

Homes by Avi’s Jefferson is 2,343 square feet and features a beautiful gourmet kitchen, a stunning master suite with a five-piece spa-like ensuite, and a large central bonus room, perfect for family nights in. It also includes a developed basement adding a fourth bedroom and third full bathroom.


Coming in for a Landing

Lanark Landing offers you more for your hard-earned money. More space, more amenities make it the perfect place for your family to land.

“Melcor plans communities for a lifetime with emphasis on building not only a subdivision of houses but building a community designed for aging in place,” says Boucher.

“This means there is a variety of product and price points available so no matter at what age or stage in life, you can stay in the community you plant your roots into.”

From starter home to move-up to downsizers there is something for everyone.

The community is also located within walking distance of Kingsview Market, or with a quick trip to the nearby Sierra Springs Shopping Centre or Yankee Valley Crossing.

“Airdrie has always had a unique sense of tight community bond you typically find in a small town, paired with every amenity you could imagine,” says Boucher.

“The perfect blend of amenities and close-knit community.”

He adds that Lanark Landing will soon be serviced by the interchange at 40th Avenue and Highway 2, providing some of the most convenient access to and from Calgary in Airdrie.
