Airdrie House and Home: Come home to quiet Cobblestone Creek

Tucked away in a quiet corner of southwest Airdrie, directly south of Chinook Gate, Cobblestone Creek is a hidden gem along 24th Street.

Home can be so much more than the word implies.

Home is where we want to be at the end of a long day. It is the comfort of the familiar that embraces us as soon as we walk through the door.

Home should be a haven, a place to create memories and spend time with those we love the most. Home is where we go to relax and recharge.

This is precisely the environment that Melcor Developments Ltd. wanted to create when designing Cobblestone Creek, the new community of Airdrie.

“As we’ve all spent more time at home than ever before, we want to have a space we love that is a refuge from the chaos and uncertainty of our world,” said Ruth Price, project coordinator at Melcor Developments. . “Cobblestone Creek embodies this concept for us, as we have designed and planned many parks and community spaces to give residents a sense of calm and community.”

Serene and scenic – with mountain views to the west, a rural skyline to the south and the North Dry Creek to the east – this new Airdrie community is home to simple living in an idyllic location.

Tucked away in a quiet corner of southwest Airdrie, directly south of Chinook Gate, Cobblestone Creek is a hidden gem along 24th Street.

The community is designed for peaceful living with a network of parks, trails and recreational facilities that encourage a true sense of community with neighbors.

“Parks, green spaces and pathways are very important in making a community walkable and accessible,” Price said. “Getting out to walk or run, meet your neighbors and enjoy the outdoors enriches your life and ties in with our theme of ‘coming home to calm down’.”

The Cobblestone Creek Parks Master Plan includes many green spaces throughout the community, which will provide endless possibilities for residents. Parents can pack a picnic to dig in while their kids play in the open spaces. Or they can enjoy a coffee and a good chat with friends as they walk and take in the beauty of the cove.

A planned community garden could allow residents to grow their own fruits and vegetables, and potential scenic outdoor plazas could provide a variety of seating areas to relax and watch local squirrels, birds and butterflies.

There’s even the prospect of a naturalized park site and boardwalk, where interactive panels could describe native plants, the environmental reserve, and the creek the boardwalk crosses.

Families will be delighted to find fantastic school offerings close to Windsong Heights and other adjacent South West Airdrie communities, as well as a future K-9 public school site located within the development. The future nine-acre school site could potentially offer an ice rink, tennis court, pickleball courts, soccer fields and a basketball court.

On top of all this, Cobblestone Creek’s ideal location is opposite the site of Airdrie’s future new Leisure Center – due to open in 2025 – and offers excellent access and links to the regional park. Chinook Winds. At the regional park, owners will find more than two kilometers of paved trails, three playgrounds, a skate park, a seasonal spray park, a multipurpose field, two seasonal concessions, public restrooms, a toboggan run, four beach volleyball and eight ball courts.

With construction of the 40 Avenue Interchange and bridge well advanced, scheduled to open in October 2023, access to the Queen Elizabeth II Freeway will be just a six-minute drive away. This will facilitate visits to CrossIron Mills Mall, Costco, New Horizon Mall and the City of Calgary. And a plethora of restaurants, banking options, shopping, and grocery stores are just a short drive down Cobblestone Creek at the Bayside Village Mall, Coopers Town Boardwalk, and Sierra Springs Mall.

Described by Price as having the aesthetic of “modern living for modern families with a small town vibe in an urban setting”, Cobblestone Creek features homes from Douglas Homes, Excel Homes, Rohit Communities and Shane Homes.

“Our builders are our customers and partner with us to develop our vision for our communities,” Price said. “We have long-standing partnerships with our builders and are confident they share our vision of creating communities in line with our vision.”

With the variety of products offered, buyers will have a wide selection of designs, floor plans and finishes to choose from. Currently, semi-detached homes are available at Douglas Homes and Rohit Communities, while Excel Homes and Shane Homes offer hallway single-family homes and front-wheel drive single-family homes.

“For our new phase – which will be released soon – we have a new product offering of homes without a lot line,” Price said. “This product is used often in the city of Calgary, but is a new product to the Airdrie market.”

Price said a no-lot product “essentially allows a first-time home buyer to own a single-family home with four walls.”

“A buyer who could only have qualified for the price range of a duplex or a semi-detached home would now have a single-family home as another purchase option,” Price said. “Price for a first-time home buyer is of the utmost importance and the non-lot line product provides more options for buyers in this price range.”

The development will include over 1,200 residential units when complete and, as is the goal of all Melcor communities, provides an option for every homebuyer, regardless of household income or lifestyle.

Founded in 1923, Melcor is an Alberta-based company that has built thousands of homes and hundreds of communities across the province. The developer has been responsible for many thriving communities in Airdrie and has been building in the city for over 25 years.

Show homes are currently under construction in the first phase of Cobblestone Creek and are expected to open soon.

“We are excited to be planning a grand show home opening for late summer as the community comes to terms with our vision,” Price said.

Phase one includes a mix of mid-range starters and movers, with more traditional starters – such as townhouses and no-lots – expected to be available in phase two.

“We are working on releasing our second phase of 116 lots to our builder group in June,” Price said.

With all the community has to offer, there’s plenty to cheer about in Cobblestone Creek.
