What's Happening

Calgary’s first “farm-to-table” community opens its doors with the introduction of seven new showhomes that exemplify modern countryfied living in southeast Calgary.

Section23 Developments officially launches Rangeview, a brand new 322- acre community with new front-drive garage and laned show homes by Baywest Homes, Homes by Avi and Jayman BUILT.

Designed to nourish and inspire authentic living through food celebration., Rangeview will be the first community in Alberta to introduce ‘Agricultural Urbanism’, which is the practice of integrating local food systems in the design and programming of neighbourhoods and communities.

“My father had one motto for his life,” says Robert Ollerenshaw, Section23’s Founder and Executive Chairman. “He said, ‘Be sure to take care of the land, and the land will take care of you’. This philosophy continues to resonate with me today.

The showhomes are along Rangeview Blvd, S.E. Visit rangeviewyyc.com for more.

SOLA is super-hot

It was always meant to be a one-of-a-kind condo and buyers have responded as SOLA in Kensington is now 50 per cent sold. This nine-storey multi-family development from Ocgrow Group of Companies is going fast as it announces the limited release of its luxury units in September.

“SOLA is widely recognized now as Canada’s most tech innovative luxury new condo tower,” says Carla Hackman, Sales Manager of Ocgrow Group, SOLA’s developer.

SOLA is Calgary’s first multi-family development with Amazon’s Alexa/Echo smart devices and a SOLA smart hub built into every unit with the fastest Internet speeds in Alberta. That’s just one of the many features that makes it one of Calgary’s best suited homes for the future. Go to solacalgary.com for more information.
