Dream’s Alpine Park
A dynamic new urbanist neighbourhood 30 years in the making
Having owned these lands for nearly three decades, the ambitious community builders at Dream have had a lot of time to imagine what Alpine Park could be. With the expansion of the southwest Ring Road allowing for easy connection to the rest of the city, work is well underway to finally realize that vision.
“It’s an unparalleled opportunity,” says Tara Steell, general manager at Dream. “When we were thinking about what the land offers, its ability to compress the mountains and the city, and provide a lifestyle that’s between the two, we took it to heart. Alpine Park is a distillation of all the things that make Calgary really wonderful.”
Alpine Park offers the best of both worlds; residents can get downtown in a little over 15 minutes or to Kananaskis by a firepit in about 35 minutes, and there is easy access to the rest of Calgary via Stoney Trail. The neighbourhood is convenient for drivers but built for people first. The 476-acre development is a next-generation new urbanist community that boasts walkability, beautiful green spaces woven throughout the development, and a focus on people in every aspect. The charming architecture sees porches replace front garages, keeping cars in the back and families out front to live and safely play in those spaces. With quality builders Calbridge Homes, Cardel Homes, Genesis Builders, and Homes by Dream offering a place for everyone, residents can choose from a range of home styles and types that complement their tastes and lifestyles.
“It’s a higher calibre of porch-front living across a wide range of needs, right from your first home to large estate-style residences,” says Michael Tandara, director of marketing for Dream.
No matter the style, each home features the same high calibre of quality and design and the same access to the green spaces and pathways that connect homeowners to nature or guide them to the retail amenities of Village Centre. Residents can go grab groceries or meet friends for a coffee at Village Centre while leaving their cars parked at home. Walkability is enhanced by the unique park spaces that encourage residents to linger and enjoy through BBQ picnic areas, Adirondack chairs for lounging, benches, playgrounds, community gardens and a public gas hearth.
The showhome neighbourhood reveal will invite Calgarians to experience a slice of that life in Alpine Park, complete with parks and tree-lined boulevards to show what to expect in the 200-unit first phase of development.
“The showhomes are opening this fall, and they’re key to that experiential feeling,” says Tandara.
Dream is excited for Calgarians to experience Alpine Park’s spectacular spaces, beautiful homes, incredible people-centric design and great amenities for themselves this fall.
