Seasons of sun, fun

Mahogany’s year-round fun-filled, family-oriented lifestyle beckons

What seemed like a long interminable winter in Calgary is over and spring is in the bud, finally. But even through the dreary months of colder than usual weather, lake life had never really stopped in Mahogany.

Games of shinny hockey have become a ritual along the frozen lakeside, skaters young and old bring life to the snowy landscape. But now it’s time to put the winter gear away and bust out the paddleboards and beach balls and assorted beach paraphernalia for what promises to be a stellar summer in Calgary’s premiere lake community.

Even before the first shovel started to dig what would be Calgary’s largest lake, its developer, Hopewell Residential, had always envisioned Mahogany to become a complete community. It was always meant to be where urban living is redefined to match the definition of the perfect lifestyle: unparalleled amenities, stylish living, and convenient access to all the things you need to live your best life.

Now, just 10 years later, Mahogany has already blossomed into a multiple award-winning community with an enviable list of already-existing amenities, not the least of which is the 63-acre lake, a 21-acre beach area and a 22,000-square-foot state-of-the-art beach club crowning it off.

Even more than that is the immediate sense of belonging and community that residents get from the first time they move in.

“You feel an immediate sense of community when visiting Mahogany,” says Hopewell Residential’s marketing manager, Nicole McLaws. “Mahogany’s Homeowners’ Association does an amazing job of bringing residents together through year-round educational and recreational programs, and the result is a tight-knit, inclusive community that’s truly unique in Calgary.”

The lake is, of course, the source of its four-season lifestyle and is at the very heart of the community, but there’s more. “Residents have exclusive access to sandy beaches, a splash park, tennis courts, a fishing pier, non-motorized marina, and so much more. On any given day, you’ll find residents gathering and enjoying all that Mahogany has to offer together.”

Even though it is only about halfway through before build out, Mahogany is already home to some 10,000 residents, who are now not only enjoying the enviable lake lifestyle, but the ease and convenience brought about by the Mahogany Village commercial centre.

Mahogany Village Market is the first development planned for the community’s highly anticipated Urban Village. This retail district already features an exciting list of shops and services, including Sobeys, Shoppers Drug Mart, Tim Horton’s, Cobs Bread, ATB Financial, Dairy Queen, Kinjo Sushi & Grill, The Canadian Brewhouse, State & Main, Nando’s, and several offices, pet stores and services.

But what has made Mahogany truly unique is its amazing range of home products offered here from the remarkable builder group that brings in affordability and style to allow any buyer on any budget to own a home here.

Every kind of housing option is available in this multi-awarded community in the southeast — from some of the most affordable apartment-style condos in the city, to the most opulent mansions on Mahogany Island, and everything else in between.

Home builders include Hopewell Residential, Calbridge Homes, Excel Homes Morrison Homes, Jayman BUILT, and Homes by Avi. Section 23 Developments was the latest addition and their bungalow villas have been a remarkable hit since opening last year.

The Westman Village complex of condos and townhomes and Sandgate Condos by Hopewell Residential offer multi-family options.

Mahogany is opening four brand new front-garage show homes on May 26, 2018. Built by Hopewell Residential, the show homes will feature two single-attached garage homes, and two double-attached garage homes, all with stylish finishings, open-concept living spaces, and incredible access to Mahogany’s Beach Club.

Mahogany will also open a new K-6 Catholic elementary school in the new school year in fall 2018, as even more restaurants, shops and services open in the Urban Village.

“Mahogany continues to take shape every day, ” McLaws says. “Now is a great time to enjoy Mahogany’s established amenities, while still benefiting from the investment opportunity that comes with buying a home in a new community that’s still growing. The next five years will bring the release of new lots, new show homes, new parks, new schools,  and even more shopping and dining. Mahogany will only continue to get better and better.

“In Mahogany we have homes to fit every lifestyle and budget.” she points out.

“With over 35 show homes,  it’s easy to find a home that’s the right fit,” she adds. “Whether you’re looking for the larger square footage or a smaller square footage, when they come to Mahogany, there’s a home for everyone in Mahogany.”
