As winter settles in, many Airdronians will likely spend some not-so-quality-time stuck on the Queen Elizabeth II Highway. As you endure the drive home from Calgary, infuriating stop-and-go traffic extends the daily grind, eating away precious minutes of your time to relax and unwind. It's enough to make you pack an overnight bag and sleep at the office; however, a better option is waiting for you in north Calgary with Partners Development Group townhomes.
"Partners has been building homes for 22 years, and what we love is building townhomes – that's what we specialize in," said Ismahan Omer, director of sales and marketing with Partners Development Group. "We put a focus on building the best homes without cutting corners. Our goal is to build a great home that can be accessible to everyone."
Partners offer an affordable alternative to the single-family home that will leave homebuyers stunned. Standing apart from other builders, Partners' best-in-industry customer service, proven build quality and an impressive list of value-added standards means you can own the home you will be proud of at an attainable price-point.
Central by partners
This fall, Central by partners, located in Skyview Ranch, opened the doors to two new showhomes.
"You can get downtown in just under 20 minutes and to the airport within 10 minutes. A lot of buyers are excited about the accessibility," Omer said. "You're close to many great amenities like Genesis Place Recreation Centre, Costco and to CrossIron Mills mall – you're talking a five-minute drive. Skyview offers so much to homeowners."
Skyview Ranch offers a hub for community play complete with basketball nets, playgrounds, an existing Catholic kindergarten to Grade 9 school and several designated future school sites.
"The other great thing about our location is that we are close to where the future LRT is going to be," Omer said. "The LRT is supposed to run right along 60 Street, and we're right off of there. Convenience-wise, it's going to be excellent for those that don't want to or don't need to drive. They're going to have access to transit and likely even be able to walk to the station."
The four floorplans available at Central in Skyview Ranch come with a single- or double-car garage and full driveway. The Waterton and Hudson are the two showhome models.
The Waterton is a 989 sq. ft., two-bedroom, two-and-a-half bath townhome with an oversized single attached garage, starting at $269,900 with a limited number of quick possessions available.
"The property is perfect for first-time homebuyers, young couples, someone who is looking to get into homeownership," Omer said. "It offers a beautiful kitchen in a nice open-floor concept to your dining room and living room. And also, a nice big south-facing balcony for your barbecue grill."
The second show home at Central is the Hudson, a 1,435 sq. ft. end unit with a double-car garage and full driveway, starting at $319,900.
"The Hudson is a beautiful three-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath that is stunning," Omer said. "It comes with a beautiful kitchen, large island, a large and welcoming living room, and dining room space, all nicely appointed areas. It is a nice open floorplan with nine-foot ceilings on the main floor. There's a little den off the entry that can easily be used as a home office space, and that's a perfect spot to set yourself up away from the rest of the home, which is great. This model is also available in a double-master."
"People have been looking for this model, and we've listened to what homebuyers want. They want a garage, they want the open concept, which we've done," Omer said. "But the other thing they've been asking for is a fenced-in yard, and we've been able to incorporate that into this development, which is fantastic."
Right now, Central is offering special introductory pricing and incredible incentives.
Arrive Sage by partners
Arrive Sage in the northwest of Calgary is nestled at the edge of a nature reserve along the surrounding West Nose Creek in Sage Meadows. Partners' Arrive Sage is more than 85 percent sold, and homebuyers won't want to miss the opportunity to live in this desirable community. The development is a quick walk to the community's world-class pathway system, retail shops, a private community garden, and numerous play areas to challenge kids of all ages.
Nearby shopping and dining choices are ample: Evanston Towne Centre and The Market at Symons Valley Ranch are just minutes away, as are Creekside Shopping Centre, Sage Hill Crossing and Sage Hill Plaza. Reach excellent schools of all levels within a short drive or walk to the new future school across the street. Best of all, Sage Meadows' location gives quick and convenient access to the airport, Stoney Trail and other major routes.
"Arrive Sage has speedy access to get to those great amenities," Omer said. "And you're still within a nice estate community. Sage Meadows is a fantastic value in such a desirable quadrant of the city."
Arrive Sage offers two playgrounds and a community garden in the townhome development.
With three models still available, Arrive Sage offers homeowners much to love.
"The Jasmine Interior is a two-storey, double-master floorplan with two-and-a-half bathrooms and vaulted ceilings in the main master bedroom," Omer said. "With optional basement development, you can add a bedroom, rec-room, plus a third full bathroom there."
The Jasmine Interior is 1,606 sq. ft. and starts at $274,900, an impressive price point for the area.
The Orchid Interior and Orchid End start at $369,900 and offer plenty of living space – Orchid End provides 1,647 sq. ft of living space, and Orchid Interior has 1,651 sq. ft. The three-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath townhome comes with vaulted ceilings in the master, and double attached garage.
"Our standards include full-height cabinets, soft-close doors, and drawers; quartz countertops throughout. We offer knock-down ceilings, wide-plank laminate hardwood flooring throughout the entire main floor and beautiful premium-grade luxury vinyl sheet flooring for all the wet areas, along with stainless-steel appliances, and all of your appliances are included, including the washer and dryer," Omer said.
Other standard features at Arrive Sage include a blind package on finished levels, Slimline LED pot lights and elegant fixtures, and contemporary four-by-16-inch subway tile backsplash in the kitchen. Four-inch craftsman-style baseboards and three-inch window and door casings also come standard, as do motion sensor lights, concrete front, rear steps, and a complimentary TELUS Optik TV and Internet service package for one year.
Industry-leading building standards and high specifications
The townhome builder knows the needs of multi-family buyers and actively works to promote wellness within these communities. Partners recycles all construction disposals and are certified Built Green®, using only sustainable and environmentally-friendly materials to ensure its homes are healthier, cleaner, and more efficient than those of competitors. Homeowners can breathe easier knowing their home is better for them and the environment. Partners' Heat Recovery Ventilators remove allergens for air free of virtually all pollutants and dust. Simultaneously, its underground Molok waste, compost, and recycling system reduce carbon dioxide emissions.
"We are continuing to promote Built Green® in all of our developments because we see the value, not only with the environment but also in the savings for our clients," Omer said, adding the Built Green® features in a Partners' home could qualify the homebuyer for a mortgage insurance rebate of up to 15 per cent of premiums paid.
"It's great value at the time of purchase, as well in the long run. Purchasers are also saving money because we've made sure to implement those energy-saving materials that are sustainable and can produce savings in the long run. That's something that we're excited to continue to offer to our clients."
Cost-reducing features include a tankless hot water boiler and fan coil that provide domestic hot water and heat; blower door testing and oversized triple glazed low-E windows; and water-saving faucets and low-flow toilets. Additionally, most of the stainless-steel appliances that come standard are Energy Star® rated for optimum efficiency. The builder even goes so far as to include low-maintenance and sustainable landscaping.
Partners has also incorporated thoughtful design in the exterior of its townhomes. Using a clean Scandinavian aesthetic with contemporary colours and materials designed by Gravity Architecture – one of Calgary's leading architects – the high-quality siding is specifically engineered to withstand Alberta's weather.
"We've seen some very rough hail storms in Calgary with massive damage to homes and cars across the city. We proactively said we need to do something about this so our townhomes can withstand these storms and hold their value for years to come," says Omer.
Another critical feature that cements Partners Development Group as the builder of townhomes is its industry-leading QuietWall™ system. The noisy-neighbours solution is designed well above code requirements to minimize sound transfer between homes. Partners' Sound Transfer Rating (STR) is 65 decibels while building code for a multi-family development is set at 50 decibels.
With thoughtful design, high-quality building materials, commitment to well-being, and a substantial list of high-end standards, it is no wonder so many homebuyers are turning to Partners Development Group when buying a new townhome. Be it a first-time homeowner, downsizer, snowbird, or someone interested in an investment property, Arrive Sage and Central by partners offer an escape from the daily grind in a home built with your wellness in mind.
Showhomes are open Monday to Thursday 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. and weekends and holidays from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. For more information or to take a virtual tour of the available models, visit partnershomes.ca or call 825-222-8805.
