KOTS FAMILY Q&A

Posted on July 24, 2015

With four kids ranging in age from 13 to 5, Paula Kot’s family’s needs have changed drastically since moving to Airdrie eight years ago. The family is currently in the process of building a new home with Lifestyle Homes, located in Cooper’s Crossing on Airdrie’s southwest corner.

Q. Why did you choose that area of Airdrie?

A. Primarily, it’s the accessibility to Calgary, for my husband who commutes every day, but also for the school zones. Our kids actually go to three different schools – one in high school, two in elementary school, and then I’ve got one in French immersion, and Cooper’s really does give you a fabulous selection of schools...

The Parkhouses is a boutique 31-unit development for buyers who are 50 years and older. Prices start from the low $500,000s. These villas have a rear-attached garage and are arranged as a pocket neighbourhood within the Okotoks community of Drake Landing.

Pocket neighbourhoods refer to a small group of homes oriented around a common open space, which is intended to serve as an area to meet and bond with neighbours. This format was a nice fit with the down-sizing segment of the market, says Michael Tandara, sales and marketing manger for Lifestyle Homes.

“It’s a lot quieter,” Tandara says. “Kids are no longer in the house and as they start to scale down, they start to seek that social interaction.” ...

After 18 years of providing solidly built homes to buyers throughout the Calgary area, Lifestyle Homes is now offering custom homes in Airdrie’s premiere community, Cooper’s Crossing community.

As Lifestyle Homes serves communities primarily in the south and west areas of Calgary, as well as Chestermere, Elbow Valley and Okotoks, their recent expansion to Airdrie was a bit of a stretch.

“It is definitely outside of our normal focus area, but it was the right opportunity at the right time,” said Michael Tandara, sales and marketing manager with Lifestyle Homes. “Cooper’s Crossing is a beautiful, amazing community that holds really high standards, which is reflected in Airdrie voting it the premiere new community for two years running. It’s exciting to have been able to enter the market in an area like that.” ...

POCKET NEIGHBOURHOOD APPROVED

Posted on February 27, 2015

Okotoks town council has approved the development permit for a unique new neighbourhood in Drake Landing Heights.

The pocket neighbourhood proposed by Lifestyle Homes will feature 31 residential units facing inwards around a common green space. Each unit will have a rear-attached garage to encourage pedestrian oriented activity in the front of each home. The project is the first of its kind in Okotoks and is aiming to fill a void in the town's housing market. The neighbourhood is an adult-oriented project aimed at giving another option to homebuyers coming out of a family home...
