The nature of giving

I had the pleasure to attend the Alberta Adolescent Recovery Centre’s (AARC) gala night last month, and I have to still pick up my jaw from the floor where it fell in utter amazement at the charitable nature of the city. $1.1 million was raised that night alone, their 17th annual gala, which also marked a milestone with AARC topping the 500 graduates mark. Source Media Group was one of the media sponsors for the event and we’re just happy to contribute in any small way we can to this noteworthy organization and the work they do in helping Alberta’s troubled youth. For more about the organization and the good they are doing, check out our feature in this issue.

The giving nature of the city is also reflected in the natural bounty we all get to enjoy nearby, and Calbridge Homes gives us a way to enjoy this reality even better with their new estate homes in the riverside community of Riverstone of Cranston. They will be opening a range of triple-car garage homes that takes total advantage of this tranquil location by the banks of the Bow River and Fish Creek Park. One of their buyers was lured here by the fly fishing that can readily be had literally at their backyard.

Trico Homes’ show home in Legacy also shows the builder’s detail-oriented magnificence in designing luxury estate homes. They are the perfect family home for those looking for a step-up from their move-up home but not necessarily go over the $1 million mark. Meanwhile, Cardel Inner City — the newest addition to the Cradel Homes group — is spicing up living in Calgary’s older communities. Their new show home in Killarney was just launched as they offer a more affordable way to enjoy the benefits of inner-city living.

Those inclined to live by the countryside can thank Tamani Communities for the best bet in riverside living in Cochrane with Riversong, as they launch new show homes that will attract buyers from across the demographic range into a new community just a few minutes from Calgary.

This issue also brings part two of our series on the outstanding women in Calgary’s home building industry, and how they impact the industry.

With the spring market booming, you can trust us to bring you the latest on what’s happening in the new home market and how this can affect your lives — from buying one, decorating your home, and enjoying the lifestyle.
