Park-side living at Brookfield’s Chinook Gate
May 28, 2019
With a wide range of home types just steps away from Airdrie’s renowned Chinook Winds Park and minutes away from schools, shops, restaurants and more, Chinook Gate gives new homebuyers the lifestyle they desire without the big city price.
Developed by Brookfield Residential, Chinook Gate spans 113 acres nestled alongside Chinook Winds Park off Yankee Valley Boulevard between 8th and 24th Streets S.W. Construction is completed on Phases 1 and 2 and the community will eventually be home to approximately 800 residences.
“Chinook Gate is a boutique community where buyers won’t have to compromise anything,” says Tannis Anstey, marketing manager, Calgary communities. “Buyers can enjoy a wide range of amenities at their doorstep, including the 55-acre Chinook Winds Park, which is a huge draw for many people. And, we are close to Genesis Place, a destination for many from Airdrie and Calgary overall.
“As well, buyers can get more for less with a variety of product offerings, at great price points.”
Currently, there are home styles available that will appeal to first-time buyers looking for great value and affordability, empty-nesters looking to right size, and couples with and without children who are looking for their first detached home to fit their growing family.
Front-attached garage homes are being offered by Excel Homes and well-known Airdrie builder McKee Homes starting in the low $400,000s, while Brookfield and Excel are building laned homes starting in the mid-$300,000s and duplexes starting in the low-$300,000s.
Avalon Master Builder is a new addition to the community, crafting 40 stylish two-storey live-work townhomes that offer buyers an opportunity to combine their work and living space. The Zen Townhomes offer two- and three-bedroom designs starting from the $270,000s.
But the biggest attraction is the walkability and access to all trails, greenspace and year-round activities within the community and the 55-acre Chinook Winds Park, which is home to a hockey rink, skate park, multi-use and volleyball courts, baseball diamonds and a toboggan hill.
Residents also appreciate having numerous nearby amenities. The location just off Yankee Valley Boulevard provides easy access to a wide range of shops, services, restaurants, grocery stores and schools (there is also a future school site in the community). It also provides quick access to Centre Street and the QE2 for easy commutes to Calgary.
“What a rare opportunity to live in a boutique community, yet be so close to the amazing established amenities of Airdrie and Calgary,” Anstey says. “It’s incredible that we have Chinook Winds Park in our backyard, and Genesis Place a quick 10-minute drive. It really is the best of all worlds, at prices that are attainable. Upsize, downsize, your size – it’s a community that’s a perfect fit.”
