Spring into action

March Madness may rule the month in collegiate basketball in the U.S. but the insanity of keeping up with all the show home openings and community launches in Calgary lasts us the entire season. At least it feels that way.

Like every year, New Home Living has been in the thick of it, covering everything from new show homes to new communities to keep our readers informed of what’s happening. You can get a glimpse of the frenetic activity in our Facebook page and on Twitter and Instagram etc. (and in the corresponding social media platforms of our sister publication, Condo Living). Follow us on-line, where we expand our conversation beyond just homes and communities.

In this issue, we start by tipping our hats off to Trico Homes, which is celebrating 25 great years as one of Calgary’s most recognized home builders. They have not only proven themselves as a renowned builder of condos, townhomes and single-family homes, but as a responsible corporate citizen as well, interested not in just building homes but in strengthening the bonds of community, too.

For our show home profiles, we stuck with the community of Mahogany in the southeast where we walk through Homes by Avi’s magnificent McGregor, an estate family home done right if there ever was one. We also discover the benefits of living in Westman Village’s ultra luxury Reflection Estate Condominiums, which truly represents world-class living in a world-class community.

For our community profiles, we have Evanston in the north by Qualico Communities. It is on the verge of completion and is one of Calgary’s newest established communities where top-line amenities such as schools, shopping and entertainment are already all existing and readily at hand. Then there’s The Rise by Bri-Mor Developments, a new semi-estate community going up in the much-sought–after southwest. The biggest difference with The Rise is that it is a new community where all the easy-living amenities are already on hand as it is jus off the vibrant 85th Street S.W. corridor.

Spring is also the time when we celebrate the SAM Awards and we have a partial list of the sinle-family and community awards here. Good luck to all the finalists!

Spring is indeed something to look forward to. But something else to look forward to is the Medical Travel Show coming up later this year, find out all about this show that reveals to Calgarians the numerous health and medial opportunities available here and abroad.

It is a very busy spring, but it’s good to be busy. Hope to bump into you in one of the events we cover this season.
