The neighbourhood of Harmony is going to be developed into an innovative lifestyle community. It will include a championship golf course, a recreational lake, an employment campus and 3,500 homes. It will be centered around a core that offers gathering spaces for members of the community and boutique stores.
There will also be a health center and schools. State-of-the-art water and environmental conservation methods as well as water treatment systems will also be put into place. It's expected that the construction of the project will start later this spring and that showhomes will be opened in spring 2015.
The new community will be built in Rocky View County, both west and north of the Springbank Airport. It's the only master planned community that has been improved in this area. It promises to offer a relaxed lifestyle to residents in the Rocky Mountain foothills.
More than a third of the land in Harmony will be kept reserved for active and open areas that include green spaces and water elements. About 17,000 trees are expected to be planted in the community to further enhance the majestic countryside.
Some of the open space planned amenities include the following:
- Tennis courts
- Pathways and trails
- Baseball diamonds
- Neighbourhood playgrounds and parks
- Soccer fields
- Village green spaces
- Health and wellness club
- Much more
This planned community is located close to Calgary and will offer another option to buyers that want to live near the city while enjoying the benefits of small-town living.
