November 2018 | issue 155

Looking outside the window of my tiny office in a southeast industrial sector of town, fall doesn’t look all that inspiring. It’s snowing, leaves are off the branches and lying listlessly on the ground, a blustery wind is blowing intermittently — it’s a mid-February scene and it’s not even Halloween as I write this. Life in Calgary, I guess.

But the fact remains, fall is still my favourite season. True, we don’t get a lot of it here in this side of the Rockies, but I love the quiet chill of the mornings and the mid-afternoon light around the pond when I take the dog for a walk. (I know, I’m a boring old, suburbanite.)

The hectic pace of show home launches in the season is also another thing that makes this a time worth celebrating. Check out my Around Town news column this issue to see what has opened recently, like new show homes in Harmony in Springbank, Boulder Creek in Langdon, Heritage Hills in Cochrane and Hampton Hills
in High River. And follow us on Twitter and Facebook (@CalgaryHomeLiving) to find out about all these show home and other industry events as they happen.

Fall is even lovelier along the foothills of Cochrane, and Fireside gives you a ringside seat to the spectacular blaze of colours at this time of the year. Residents here love the scenic nature of this La Vita Land community on the south side of Cochrane and they recently added estate lots that bring a deeper sense of family-
friendly values to the community. Check out what else is new about them in our cover feature.

We also put a spotlight on the thriving northeast community of Cornerstone by Anthem United, which stats show is one of the most popular communities in Calgary in terms of sales. Then there’s also the just-opened community of Carrington South by Apex Developments and H3 Developments that bring even more growth
to this booming sector of town.

Also check out the lovely show homes from Calbridge Homes in Rocky Vale Green and Brookfield Residential’s Carmini II in Artesia at Heritage Pointe. We love the new designs and innovative approach they both take in making these show homes so memorable. They do make quite the first impression!

We always seek to give our readers the most extensive coverage on what’s available out there, and we’ve got a great representation of what’s available in the new parts of the city and in the surrounding areas..

So, if you’re looking for a new home, a new place to live, or a new style for your existing abode, just follow us. We’re your best resource in finding out the best new opportunities to live in your new home.
