Buying a brand-new home has many benefits, such as the ability to customize it to meet your family’s needs, and you have the added benefit of knowing all the appliances and major systems are still under warranty and will be sound for years to come.

New Communities in South Calgary
With Calgary expanding to the south, buyers have the chance to purchase a new home with all the amenities and still have the convenience of the city just minutes away.
Communities currently under construction in the area include:
New Brighton is designed for people who love an active lifestyle. It is home to a 20-acre central park and a 12-acre lake, which provide great places to take a morning run or ride a bike. The community is built around a 6,500 square foot centre with a water park and sport courts.
Legacy is made up of 1,100 acres nestled in the natural beauty of south Calgary and offers mountain views throughout. It includes a 300-acre natural reserve with valleys, forest and creeks to explore. Planned to create a home for families and a sense of belonging, it offers residents access to more than 15 km of trails and paths as well as an organic community garden.
Mahogany is designed to appeal to those seeking urban living amid the natural landscape. Centered around a private lake with two residential islands, it offers 265 acres of wetlands, parks, and other public open spaces. Homeowners will have exclusive access to Mahogany Lake, the largest freshwater lake in Calgary, perfect for boating and swimming in summer and hockey and skating when the weather turns colder.
Walden includes peaceful parks of preserved trees with footpaths throughout as well as a and wetland area and pond. Near the Shawnessy Town Centre and Lake Chaparral in southest Calgary, this urban community offers townhomes, condos, semi-detached and single-family homes within a beautiful natural setting.
Growing in Okotoks
If you’re looking the small-town feel without being too far from the big city, a home in historic Okotoks is a great choice for you. I grew up in Okotoks and live there now with my family. As your Calgary mortgage broker, I have a unique perspective on home ownership in our area. These communities all have a lot to offer new home buyers.
Mountain View is located on a large plateau overlooking the Sheep River escarpment in the northwest corner of Okotoks and is only 20 minutes from the city. It includes a 35-acre reserve, a naturalized pond and creek. The escarpment surrounding the community offers a stunning view of the Rockies.
The Hill in Westridge aims to blend new technology with old-world design. With three parks and only 150 homes, the goal is to provide the small-town open feel with room to enjoy the scenery even though you are just minutes away from the city.
Green Haven Estates is a 2-minute drive from Highway 2, providing easy access to nearby Calgary. It is situated on an escarpment above Okotoks with a breathtaking panorama of the Rocky Mountains. A combination of country living and urban amenities, Green Haven estates offers generous lot sizes range from .8 to 1.5 acres.
Cimarron is on the southern end of Okotoks and borders the Sheep River and looks out over the foothills with homes with gorgeous country views and recreational opportunities perfect for any active family.
