Chestermere welcomes their newest community development, as Qualico Communities broke ground in Dawson’s Landing.

Dawson’s Landing marks the first time Qualico — the multi-awarded land developer of such communities as Evanston, Redstone and Crestmont in Calgary — enters the hot Chestermere market.

 “Chestermere is a growing vital city. It is a place people want to live,” says Clark Piechotta Associate Director of Development with Qualico Communities. “The population has increased 34 per cent since 2011. Beyond that, the City’s administration has been welcoming and has been proactive in bringing investment to the City. Given these factors, it became apparent that Chestermere is an obvious place to develop a great community for people to call home.”

“We are really excited about this community. Not only because it’s Qualico’s first community in Chestermere but because it’s going to have some really interesting elements, that haven’t been done in other communities,” says Thilo Kaufmann General Manager of Acquisitions and Development with Qualico Communities.

“Dawson’s Landing will be a modern, integrated community, designed with the existing character of Chestermere in mind,” says Cheryl Heilman, Marketing Director, with Qualico Communities. “There are two future school sites within the community, and ground floor retail options, this community will seamlessly blend into the existing city of Chestermere,” says Heilman.

Dawson’s Landing will feature an EcoPark wetland. The goal of the proposed Ecopark is to retain the wetland and enhance it as a community amenity.  The park will be used for recreation and education. Interpretive boards will highlight the importance of wetland preservation, rehabilitation, and environmental sustainability to residents. The park will also feature a boardwalk, and sheltered education areas that students from Chestermere and surrounding area can use. The EcoPark will be approximately 12.15 Hectares (30 acres in size). 

Dawson’s Landing comprises approximately 108 hectares (267 acres) and is located in west Chestermere, immediately west of Rainbow Road, and just off Chestermere Boulevard (17th Avenue). 

There will be 241 homes in the first phase and approximately 1,305 at final build out. With a range of products, potential homeowners can choose from single family, duplex, townhomes, condominiums or cottages.

In the initial phases the award-winning builders will be Broadview Homes, NuVista Homes, Pacesetter by Sterling Homes, Morrison Homes, Truman Homes and Trico Homes. Qualico Communities will begin stripping and grading fall of 2018, with show homes projected to open in 2019.
