There is no denying that Calgary is home to some of the coolest communities around, and that’s something we’re incredibly proud of. What makes a community great to you? Scenery? Location? Shopping? Dining? Whatever it is, Calgary is home to some pretty great areas full of things to do, see and eat. So we want to say thank you to Morrison Homes, for building communities with wicked amenities and shaping our city into the vibrant and awesome place it is today!
Did you know that Morrison Homes has been building homes and communities for 60 years now?! That’s a heck of a long time and a heck of an influence to have on our quaint city back in the day. And, to celebrate their big 6-0, Morrison Homes is offering an anniversary special giving you $1961 in-home upgrades (on top of all the other promotions they’re offering right now). Make sure to sign up now before the offer’s gone!
Now let’s take a look at some of the coolest communities in Calgary.
Nestled in Calgary’s NE, Cornerstone is incredibly accessible from any direction and it is the future home to two LRT plazas. It will also be home to Calgary’s first Major Activity Centre (MAC) which will offer a place to work, live, shop, recreate and be entertained, so you can enjoy the burbs without ditching your social life! Cornerstone boasts an impressive 95 acres of dedicated park space and pathways so you can walk, skip, run, bike or hey! Even hop your way around exploring this amazing community.
Sometimes Calgary can feel like 2 cities in one AKA North and South Calgary. And Belmont is the star jewel of Calgary South. In Belmont, your new home extends well beyond your front door with amazing amenities just around the corner. Balancing the proximity to amenities with the proximity to the rolling foothills is what sets Belmont apart. You can escape the hustle and bustle of the city in no time living in Belmont!
Two words: Stunning views. The SE community of Legacy offers unreal views of both our beautiful prairie landscape and the glorious Rocky Mountains. Legacy has a ton of cool features, but one of our faves is the Community Garden. Legacy offers the space for you to plant your fruits, veggies, herbs and family roots and watch them thrive. There’s no wonder Legacy scooped up Calgary’s Community of the Year twice now and is nominated again this year!
We’re pretty sure that living in Sirocco is what adulting dreams are made of. In a rare occasion where the Rocky Mountain Foothills cascade into manicured lawns, Sirocco is the perfect balance of city and country living. Family homes feature elegant architecture and the community amenities offer opportunities for the whole family to grow and explore. You’ll want to make the most of every moment living in Sirocco.
When you’re blessed to live in a city as beautiful as Calgary then it just makes sense to live in a community that embraces the landscape and nature quite like Livingston does. Nestled among green hills and wetlands, Livingston weaves together green streets, walkways and pathways and an urban corridor to work, play and shop close to home in Calgary’s New North end.
Living in Wedderburn will give you some serious flashbacks of growing up in the ’90s, and we couldn’t be more excited about a community with that vibe. In Okotoks’ newest community, you’ll find kids riding their bikes until dinnertime and neighbours waving as they pass by. Located just south of Calgary, you can enjoy the wonders of a deer walking through your yard all while having the amenities of urban city living just minutes away.
There’s no better feeling than running and jumping in a lake and that’s exactly the experience you can get from living in Dawson’s Landing. The lakeside city of Chestermere is a place for your family to grow and it offers an array of unprecedented outdoor activities. Just steps from Lake Chestermere but still close to shopping, parks, schools and more. You won’t be going bored here!
There are some really nice newer neighbourhoods on this list but let’s not forget some of the more established communities that Morrison Homes is known for. Auburn Bay is a big stand-out with a magnificent lake and great location. Cougar Ridge and Castle Keep are unprecedented due to their proximity to the highway and a straight shot to the mountains. And then there are other great communities like Sage Hill, Skyview, Cranston and more that are great for shopping and dining. And they are still knocking it out of the park to this day!
So did your community make this list? If not, that’s okay too because Morrison Homes can get you into a brand spanking new home in no time.
So be sure to check out all Morrison Homes’s current offers. ‘Cause, to be honest, there really isn’t a better time to make a move and upgrade your quality of life with a new home and a thriving community!
