Hillcrest in Airdrie by APEX Developments

Cresting on a hill in southwest Airdrie, homebuyers have been embracing the incredible value, tranquil setting and amenities offered in Hillcrest for years.

Offering a peaceful, family-friendly atmosphere that has been thoughtfully designed, APEX Developments has made it easy for residents to enjoy life on the hill.

Residents are delighted to be welcomed home by a stunning entrance, which includes a grand stone tower and landscaped flower beds, a well-known focal point of the community. The entry also complements the community’s natural topography and architectural styling that includes Arts and Crafts, Craftsman, Prairie and Tudor.

Now, buyers who desire to live in this exceptional community will need to act fast as Hillcrest is in the final stages of development.

“We’ve had a great response from buyers to Hillcrest,” says APEX’s development co-ordinator Morgan Gowland. “They love being able to buy into a community that has so much to offer, and better yet, at a price point that is affordable for them. For example, single-family laned homes start from the $299,000s, which is an incredible price. Appealing to everyone from first-time buyers, to right-sizers and investors, these homes offer spacious options including loft, basement and garage developments and come complete with a landscaped front yard.”

Plus, with Hillcrest now almost 90 per cent sold, buyers can enjoy “the benefits of having a new home in an established community with a great feel, mature landscaping and plenty of friendly neighbours,” she adds.

Hillcrest’s final phases feature homes by Excel Homes and Shane Homes. Excel is building front-drive garage and laned single-family homes, front-drive garage duplexes and front-drive garage, no-condo-fee townhomes. Shane is building front-drive garage, laned single-family homes and laned duplexes.

“Only a few opportunities remain to build a front-drive garage single-family home in the community, so people will need to act quickly,” Gowland says. “Luckily, buyers still have their choice of lots in Phases 8 and 9 to build their dream home.”

Buyers can find affordability in all housing options here with townhomes starting from the $310,000s, duplexes from the $320,000s, and front-drive garage homes starting from the $420,000s.

“Along with price points, a big draw to Hillcrest has been the location,” Gowland says. “It’s a unique setting in a prime spot and it’s home to two playgrounds, an extensive pathway system, central gazebo, storm pond and a K to Grade 8 school that is scheduled to open in January 2020.

“Hillcrest itself is conveniently located just off 8th Street and 40th Avenue, making it a quick drive to nearby shops, services, restaurants, recreation facilities and schools in Airdrie, an array of shops at CrossIron Mills, as well as to major routes and the city of Calgary,” Gowland says. “Residents also don’t have to venture far for their essentials with a grocery store, pharmacy, and gas station within walking distance just across 40th Avenue.”
