I love Legacy

There’s more to love in this young, vibrant community than ever before

Brandi can’t stop talking about Legacy. She moved in less than a year ago and she is completely in love with this lively, young community in the southeast.

“I just feel like there’s a great connection in the community, my neighbours are friendly, everybody waves ‘hi’ and Halloween was pretty epic with the number of Trick or Treaters coming by my house,” she tells New Home Living excitedly. “The whole community just feels so young and full of energy and fun!”

She also participated in the “I Love Legacy” on-line marketing campaign launched by the community’s developer, WestCreek Developments, that highlighted everything there is to love about the quickly growing Calgary neighbourhood. 

“We had a terrific response from the community with this campaign, and it pinpointed that residents were overwhelmingly happy about living here. In fact 94 per cent of them say they would recommend living here to their friends and relatives,” says Kalida Goldade, marketing manager at WestCreek Developments. 

The ”I Love Legacy” campaign was organically inspired as a way for the community to share the winning formula that it has to offer Calgarians. Inspired by timeless living, the growing residential hub boasts an extensive selection of homes and features, making it an all-inclusive place to live at every age and stage of life. 

What has endeared Legacy to residents is the obvious care that West Creek Developments has given to installing amenities within the community. Be it recreational, commercial, or social amenities, if it meant making living here easier, they were prioritized for completion.

“Pathways, parks and playgrounds were among the first to be installed, so were lovely public art pieces and even the entrance feature ‘ruins’ and watch tower that gives Legacy much of its character were mostly in place even before residents started living here,” Goldade says.

WestCreek Developments has also encouraged community get-togethers with their periodic Stampede breakfasts and block parties through the year. The 150,000 sets of Christmas lights they install every year for the holidays always make it seem such a festive, family-oriented community to begin with.

Busy commercial areas are now open, including Legacy Corner, and more are on the way, including the much-anticipated Legacy Village opening next year, and the massive, 64-acre Township development going up near the entrance to the community along Macleod Trail.

It is these well-thought-out features that have made Legacy the tightly knit community it is today. “People just love walking their dogs and taking their children to the parks for a stroll,” Goldade points out. 

What makes Legacy such a hit is the wide variety of homes available. From condos and townhomes, duplexes, laned homes, move-up homes and estate Homes, Legacy has a home product that can fit any lifestyle. They are also rated for secondary suites, which makes it even more appealing to buyers with extended families and those with an eye to renting.

“We have opened two new areas for move-up homes,” Goldade says. “The wide and varied choice of lots we offer gives us a decided edge, including new lots that back onto a water feature, woods or parks. New are move-up homes from Stepper and Sterling Homes that are located across the street from our premium ridge lots.”

She says they are immensely proud of the work they accomplished in brining move-up homes in Legacy’s thickly forested area. It’s a tricky thing to accomplish, but these homes are being built right in the midst of this thicket of trees, and will be from our own WestCreek Homes and Trico Homes,” she says.

There are 42 show homes of every type of these offerings that can inform interested buyers not only of the kinds of home they can have here, but the kind of life they can lead here as well. 

Legacy is truly shaping up to be a community for the future. “This is a community for everyone, where families can put down roots. Where you can buy your first home and move on to a bigger family home and onto a downsizer home without leaving the community. It has all the amenities you will ever need close at hand and you can see even more coming on the horizon,” Goldade says. 

“The southern part of Calgary is booming and there are a lot more employment opportunities within a 15 minute drive from Legacy. The imminent completion of the Stoney Trail ring road will connect Legacy like never before, which means buying in Legacy now gets you in the ground floor of this new growth that’s happening around us.”

More than 2,400 homes have been sold in Legacy to date and WestCreek Developments has also brought on a new community this year called Cornerbrook in northeast Calgary, with another budding development, Wolf  Willow, to be launched in 2019.
