Q in Sage Hill at-a-glance
With an eye on convenience and luxury, Morrison Homes Multi Family has launched Q Condominiums, putting condo living in the heart of a new, vibrant retail centre in Calgary’s northwest.
Located in amenity-rich Sage Hill, Morrison celebrated the grand opening of Q on June 9. The project comprises 173 apartment-style condos – 75 in the first of two five- to six-storey buildings – that offer a downtown retail village vibe.
“Q launched pre-sales a few months ago, and it’s received a lot of interest from people because you don’t often find this kind of product in the suburbs,” says Robert Toth, marketing lead for the Multi Family Division of Morrison Homes. “A lot of people want the conveniences of downtown living, but they don’t want the hassles that often come from living in the core, like finding parking. Affordability is also an issue with buying downtown.
“Q puts inner city convenience in a suburban setting,” he says. “It’s a great way for people to have everything that they need around them, at an affordable price starting from low $200,000s.”
Buyers are excited that Q is part of the Sage Hill Quarter site that encompasses 16 acres with an approximate 240,000-sq.-ft. retail development, thereby putting a wide range of shops just steps from their front door.
Walking distance to amenities
“They love the convenience of being able to walk to get their groceries and that they don’t need a car for their errands,” Toth says. “Co-op and Shoppers Drug Mart are confirmed to be nextdoor. There is a proposal for a daycare and fitness facilities. You’re going to have restaurants, coffee shops and medical facilities. All of the things that you need, they’re going to be all around you — within walking distance.”
Buyers also appreciate that they have easy access in the Sage Hill area, with major routes such as Stoney, Shaganappi and Sarcee Trails for quick commutes to the airport, downtown, the university and even out to the mountains.
Another attraction is the well-appointed interiors that feature ultra-smart floorplans and luxury finishings such as stainless steel appliances, contemporary cabinets, luxury vinyl plank flooring, premier quartz countertops, tile backsplash and nine-ft. ceilings. Buyers can also personalize their suites by choosing from three designer colour palettes and designer options.
All condos come with balconies or terraces with privacy screens, in-suite laundry with stacked washer and dryer, and heated and secured underground parking with bike storage facilities and storage lockers.
Toth notes that Q appeals to “the Millennial homebuyer – someone who likes having everything close at hand and not keen on driving throughout the city for what they need – as well as first-time buyers seeking affordability, and downsizers and empty nesters looking for maintenance-free living and convenience.
“Q Condominiums is such a unique project – there’s nothing like this in the vicinity and it’s rare that developers make these prime spots available for housing within their retail spaces,” he adds. “Morrison Multi is also very fortunate to be able to partner with a great developer like Ronmor to offer this new type of living to Calgarians.”
