Few Calgary views are more beautiful than the ones found in Cougar Ridge.  The Landings at Cougar Ridge offer their residents a unique mixture of river and city views. In addition to the views, the impeccable quality of Statesman’s 45 luxury townhomes and 21 garden villas, sets a new standard for maintenance free condominium living. 

Statesman knows how to build villas.  Jason Goodwill explains that Statesman originally introduced the villa to Western Canada around 1984, and has had more than 30 years to perfect this style of home.  Typically characterized by garages, The Landings will be unique in their curb appeal.  President and C.E.O. Garth Mann had the goal of having more interesting architecture in the community.  No more garage frontage; the villas are built with an underground, heated parkade.

The villas are designed in two sections: 10 will back directly onto the ridge and 11 will be slightly offset from it.  Each group has its own parkade offering each home owner three parking spots.  The parkade style offers heating, no garage to clean, and increased security for your vehicle whether you are away for the weekend or the winter.  Each villa can be accessed from the parking area as well as from the street.  Rather than the typical walkout, Mr. Goodwill says The Landings villas will have a “main level walkout that walks right onto the ridge looking into the Bow Valley”.

Statesman is known for quality, high end construction and The Landings are no exception.  Mr. Goodwill says that upgrading will be difficult in The Landingsas the standards are set so high to begin with.  Each unit comes with maple cabinetry and granite countertops.  Beyond the fixtures and finishings is cutting edge, green construction techniques.

The condo fees for The Landings will be very low as the units have been built with maximum longevity in mind.  Mr. Goodwill jokes that, while it is “common to have a 30 year reserve study, there’s not going to be much on the first 30 year reserve study; [they] might have to do two just to project some kind of costs and some type of maintenance because [The Landings] are just that well built”.  Using 30 year asphalt shingles and 45 year hardy plank on the exteriors as a start, Statesman has assured that residents will need as little upkeep of common areas as is possible. 

Maple cabinets and granite countertops are standard in The Landings.

In addition to the construction considerations, The Landings will include geothermal heating and cooling systems.  This offers clean heating.  Mr. Goodwill points out that, while the green aspect and the money savings are great, most people he’s spoken with who have geothermal love it for its convenience.  Geothermal offers the ability to have your home at your ideal temperature with no change to your costs; it is year round and consistent. 

The Landings of Cougar Ridge are located in one of the fastest growing areas of the city.  According to Mr. Goodwill, Cougar Ridge saw a five per cent growth last year and some of the surrounding communities were as high as ten per cent growth.   He lives in the area as well and says that it is “close to everything that we want to be close to”. 

Statesman is now taking reservations for The Landings which are set to break ground this month.  Contact Statesman today to select your maintenance free dream home and get ready to have access to everything you love about Calgary.
