Bri-mor stuns with the Rise at West Grove Estates

The west end of Calgary’s residential sector has been popular for many years — but with the launch of West Grove Estates and the Rise at West Grove Estates, Bri-mor Developments has had nothing but positive response.

Despite economic uncertainty, under 25 per cent of lots now remain at the Rise, with homeowners acting quickly on the real value offered in this community.
“The community is now fully built out,” says Aleem Dhanani, managing director for Bri-mor Developments. “With seven acres of green space including a reflective park, a play park with equipment for young children and an activated park that includes a junior soccer field, outdoor exercise equipment, a chess board and an outdoor stage for community programming, residents of the Rise are moving into an already established neighbourhood, with actual neighbours.”
The first phase of the Rise, which was 111 lots, was so successful that the additional 89 lots were brought on and released ahead of schedule.
“Knowing we have the product they desire, homeowners can get more home for the price, in the area they want and with all lifestyle amenities they need,” says Dhanahi.
Some residents that are already living at the Rise love the established community and detail Bri-mor took with their whole vision of the Rise at West Grove Estates.
“It was really nice moving into a community that was already developed. There is a lot of care and attention going into all of the green spaces and walking paths. Our home, backing onto a green space was a huge win!” says Russell Bell and Kayla Kaluzny.
The Rise at West Grove Estates is truly a hidden gem that provides residents not only with an inner-city lifestyle being 15 minutes from downtown but also, tranquillity that comes with living outside of the core and only 60 minutes to the mountains.
Another couple with a growing family living at the Rise also stated that having established amenities was a big advantage.
“We have a growing family and wanted to be in a community that was family oriented with great schools. Having groceries and schools right in the community is wonderful!” says Kesa and Darren Robinson.
The recent completion of the twinning of Bow Trail and the expected expansion of Stoney Trail that is well underway is only adding to the convenience and ease of living at the Rise on the west side of Calgary.
Starting price points have been holding steady in the mid $700,000s, which is unmatched anywhere on the west side.
“While we have created an affordable price point offering with the Rise, we did not want to compromise the Estate community feel,” says Dhanani. “Together with our premier builders, homeowners can express their own taste and personality while designing their home.”
From the moment a visitor enters the Rise, the aesthetics of stone, the use of smooth acrylic stucco, enhanced driveway materials, composite siding, and exposed and faux wood garage doors set the community’s curb appeal apart from the rest.
The available four showhomes and over 200 completed homes in the West Grove community provide great inspiration and showcase the designs and styles available for homeowners to choose from.
“Home designs have been created to reflect the ‘family unit’,” explains Dhanani. “They create a fully functional lifestyle that can cater to children, parents, grandparents, extended family and friends.”
Homes being offered in the last remaining 25 per cent are a range of double front-attached garage two- storey or bungalow style semi- estate homes, sitting on lots that range from 34- to 38- feet wide and starting at 2,000 and 1,200 square feet respectively.
With the vision to create a one-of-a-kind residential community in Calgary with real value, Bri-mor certainly hit the bull’s eye. Without compromising affordability, Bri-mor delivered great quality, lifestyle, curb appeal, amenities and green spaces in a well sought after community.
“The West Grove community has now matured into one where neighbours have become friends, children are playing in the playgrounds, community relationships are being forged and everyone is able to enjoy the unmatched amount of green space and community amenities,” says Dhanani.NL
