Message from our President and CEO

Launch of Mount Pleasant 1740; L-R: Kevin Harrison and Jeremy Sturgess (Sturgess Architecture), Paul Steckler (Lexington Development Management), Councillor Druh Farrell, Mayor Naheed Nenshi, David Watson (AHCC).
We recently launched our first inner-city development, called Mount Pleasant 1740, and I'm pleased to announce that from Monday, April 28, any qualifying households can purchase an attainable unit. See below for more details and instructions.
In this edition of the newsletter, we share all the current homeownership opportunities and explain how mortgage loan insurance works.
We also introduce you to one of our new program ambassadors, Jill, who was generous enough to invite CTV News into her home at SkyView Ranch for a tour and an interview. We think you will enjoy the video below.

Introducing Mount Pleasant 1740
Modern design for contemporary living

Over the past week, we exclusively offered the attainable units at Mount Pleasant to the waitlist. Now, we're ready to offer the remaining units to any qualifying households.


Starting from Monday, April 28, at 10.00 am, you can drop into our sales centre at 1010 6 Avenue SW to reserve your unit. You must show a valid mortgage pre-approval and provide the $100 program registration fee (in the form of cash or a cheque) to reserve a unit.


We currently have one, two and three bedroom units priced between $193,350 and $324,990. However, there is a chance that some of the remaining units will be reserved by people on the waitlist before Monday, so we recommend that you bring a mortgage pre-approval for more than the minimum price, if possible.  Click here for all the details and instructions...

SkyView Ranch 90% sold
High quality interior finishes

The apartments at SkyView Ranch offer low condo fees and higher quality interior finishes than other homes at the same price point.


In addition to granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances, one of the key features is the cork flooring, which is dramatically quieter than hard wood. Elaborate landscaping around the development also creates an upscale feel.  Take a closer look...

One- and two-bedroom apartment condos are priced from $183,300 and available for possessions in the second quarter of 2014. The highly popular Evanston Square development is located in an established northwest community with lots of existing amenities and new infrastructure. Take a closer look... 
laptop-floor-lady.jpg Understanding mortgage loan insurance

Mortgage loan insurance (sometimes called mortgage default insurance) is mandatory in Canada if your down payment is less than 20 percent of the purchase price of your home. The premium can be added to your mortgage loan and included in your mortgage payments, or you can pay for it upfront in a lump sum.  Learn more at The Home Front Blog...

Meet Jill, our program ambassador


Jill knows how hard it is to save for a down payment while also paying rent. She moved into her attainable home in SkyView Ranch six months ago.


Jill recently shared the story of her journey to homeownership with CTV News. "I waited a long time to have my own place," said Jill. "It's awesome."  Watch the CTV News interview...


Clever home ideas

A cleaning robot, LED light bulbs that you can control from your phone, a space-saving hammock for your cat (pictured left by Cat Crib)and a bluetooth enabled deadbolt that means you can unlock your front door just by tapping on it... We saved all these smart products and more on our Pinterest page!
