Anthem acquires Cedarglen Homes

A new power in Calgary’s new home industry has emerged, as Anthem Properties acquires Cedarglen Homes.

Cedarglen Homes is one of Calgary’s most prolific new home builders producing over 300 homes a year. They now join forces with Anthem Properties, a Real Estate operating company that develops, manages, and invests, alone or in partnership in over 320 residential, commercial, and retail projects across North America.

“This exciting partnership with Anthem Properties will open a world of opportunities for our employees and customers,” says Cedarglen Homes President, Howard Tse. “For our employees, it means joining a larger, dynamic company with a strong commitment to growth and development. For our customers, it means continued access to a wide range of high-quality homes in more communities in Calgary and the surrounding areas.”

Cedarglen and Anthem have partnered before, as Cedarglen builds homes in Anthem’s Belmont and Glacier Ridge master planned communities in Calgary.

The -32 C temperature in Calgary this January prompted extreme cold warnings, but the coldest in the city’s history remains -43 C recorded on January 21, 1943.

Daytona Homes now in Rangeview

There’s lots to be excited about in the young community of Rangeview by Section23, especially as Daytona Homes opens their first showhome in Calgary’s garden-to-table community in the southeast – and they come out swinging with a three-storey beauty.

The Lariat Z-II is designed to take you away from home without leaving it, says Craig Bieber, Vice President for Daytona Homes Calgary. “The idea is for it too feel like you are away at a ski chalet unwinding from your day to day with a good book,” he tells Around Town.

The home has a total of 2,306 square-feet of living space, including the loft. The basement suite has another 658 square-feet, which adds another bedroom and full bath to a home that already has three bedrooms and two-and-a-half baths.

The showhome is exciting enough, but Beiber says the community itself inspires residents. “Rooted in Section23’s rich agricultural heritage, the community will become a vibrant and social gathering place for neighbours to connect.” Visit calgary/ for more.

Qualico brings new community to Chestermere

Qualico Communities Calgary will be expanding their presence in Chestermere, Alberta, this year with a new community called Bridgeport.

The recently acquired land, located at Rainbow Road and 17th Avenue SE, follows Qualico Communities’ current development of Dawson’s Landing, located just across Chestermere Boulevard. The initial stage of Bridgeport will encompass 7 phases over 251 acres of land, three major park spaces, a small retail site adjacent to Chestermere Boulevard, and a public-school site.

The community will also retain some of its natural beauty by integrating a large part of the existing habitat into the community’s plan. “We will be retaining the 12-acre wetland and will incorporate it into our larger stormwater management ponds, totaling over 20 acres between the two,” says Mike Anderson, Senior Development Manager of Qualico Communities.

The project is already underway. Stripping and grading was completed in late 2023 and on-site construction will commence in the Spring. Groundbreaking will be this spring and will be followed by a community grand opening event in 2025. Go to for more.
