Quarry Park Child Development Centre

Quarry Park will soon be home to Canada’s largest privately funded childcare facility, the Quarry Park Child Development Centre. With capacity for approximately 350 children, YMCA Calgary will operate this purpose-built facility which combines functional and attractive architecture to create an environment for successful child development.

The Centre will be well equipped to provide an exemplary opportunity for children from 12 months to 6 years of age. An on-site kitchen will be staffed daily to provide nutritious snacks and daily lunches to children, along with a separate learning kitchen to allow for hands-on nutrition education.

The Centre is being divided into six pods to ensure personal care and attention is promoted. Each pod is equipped with a supervisor, team lead and primary caregivers who will be highly accredited and dedicated to the development of children. The idea is that children stay within the same pods each year, providing a consistent environment that promotes and facilitates quality early learning experiences for all children.

Remington is guiding its team of consultants including landscape architects tasked with designing secured outdoor play areas that will encourage natural play in a child-oriented environment. The playground will celebrate the natural landscape of Southern Alberta, and give children the opportunity to connect with nature while developing their creativity and coordination through play.

The Centre is anticipated to open in the Spring of 2016, and will soon be accepting applications for admission.

Step Into The Good Life At The Gates In Quarry Park

Stunning one, two and three bedroom residences a stone's throw from the Bow River in Quarry Park.

Quarry Park is fast becoming one of Calgary’s most sought after communities. A mature,  urban riverside location with the amenities and product range found in suburban neighbourhoods – what’s not to love? With the latest residential opportunity just released, Quarry Park is sure to figure much more prominently on buyers’ radar very quickly.

Remington’s new development, The Gates, is a 32-unit boutique project designed to take advantage of the grandeur of the community’s abundant natural surroundings while providing buyers with the space and style absent in most downtown projects.

Priced from the $290,000s to $400,000s, the homes are a real draw for first time homebuyers who either work in Quarry Park or who want to avoid the lengthy commutes indicative of suburban developments. But it’s not only entrants into the real estate market who should take a serious look at The Gates. The residences are also ideal for people who want to free up equity in their estate homes without compromising style or ample space.

Three condo sizes are available, including the 770-square-foot one-bedrooms plus den, the 1,000 to 1,100-square-foot two-bedroom and the 1,300-square-foot three-bedroom. Regardless of size, each floor plan offers functionality and plenty of intelligently planned storage – even one-bedroom plus den units can comfortably fit a king sized bed. In addition to the ample storage in each suite, every purchase includes an extra storage unit in the heated underground parkade. Residents are provided with underground parking and two or three bedroom buyers can purchase a second stall on a limited basis.

Complementing the open space plan are high quality interior design and finishes. Five-piece doors and drawers harmonize with the classic architecture of the home and the well-appointed kitchens come standard with granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, a pantry and an island. All units also feature a multi-purpose area where homeowners can set up a personalized space such as a media or tech centre.

Residence will enjoy oversized windows and nine-foot ceilings for plenty of natural light, stunning views of The Gates immaculate landscaping and Quarry Park’s profuse natural spaces. These areas are networked to a series of beautiful parks and 15 kms of community pathways that connect from Fish Creek Park to Carburn Park. Residents who work and live in the area can easily walk or bike to work.

The Gates is backed by an industry leading 2, 5 and 10-year warranty – the most comprehensive in Alberta. The team behind the project, Remington Development Corporation, is one of the province’s most respected development firms with more than 100 major commercial projects under its belt. If reputation, integrity and craftsmanship are important factors in your purchase decision, you’ll find no higher benchmark than a Remington project.

Don’t miss out on this limited opportunity – if the pre-release response is any indication (more than 450 people registered for a sneak a peek of the property) your chance to love life at The Gates could close quicker than you think. Follow the Contact link above for sales centre hours and location.

How Engineering Protects Quarry Park

Remington's extensive flood protection program protected the community during the province's worst flooding on record.

The 2013 floods in southern Alberta are the worst natural disaster in the province’s history. To the thousands impacted we offer our sincerest condolences. And to those rethinking a move to a riverside community in Calgary we offer this reassurance: Quarry Park did not flood. Despite backing onto the largest river in the city during the most destructive flood in history, the entire community remained intact. Some may chalk this up to luck but we know exactly why the community and its residents stayed dry. And we have the Dutch to thank for it.

Quarry Park is similar to what’s known as a polder; these are low-lying areas that are either reclaimed from a body of water or surrounded by water to some degree. You’ll find many polders in the Netherlands and other seaside countries. While Quarry Park’s risk profile is much less severe than a country that’s partially below sea-level, as the Netherlands is, the same basic principals of flood prevention apply to our community. That’s why our engineers studied polders extensively when planning Quarry Park.

Quarry Park is designed to withstand a one-in-100 year flood event – a measurement used by experts to design a community past the reach of extreme flood conditions with a one per cent probability of occurring in a given year. We’re very proud to say those measures kept the river at bay and our community safe from disaster:

  • Insulated, reinforced and landscaped rip rap berm built at one metre above one-in-100 year flood level
  • Stormwater lift station to discharge rainwater into the Bow River
  • Overland canals to divert and filter water

Residents, tenants and guests can be assured that Remington has taken every reasonable precaution to preserve and protect Quarry Park – both today and for the
next 100 years. If you have specific questions about Quarry Park’s flood protection program, or any other features that make Quarry Park unique, we invite you to contact us today.

For more on this topic, read the Calgary Herald’s article on Quarry Park’s flood mitigation program.

If you want to pick your ideal location and layout, we suggest you do so soon as interest is growing. And why is that? Let’s recap the project and community’s exclusive advantages so you can make an informed and intelligent purchase decision:

  • insulated, pre-cast concrete construction for superior quality, durability, sound attenuation, fire resistance and energy efficiency
  • penthouse level specifications in all residences including designer finishings and exquisite coffered ceilings with crown mouldings

Welcome To The Neighborhood

Champagne Welcomes Lyle and Edna Bradshaw

Calgarians Lyle and Edna Bradshaw were recently profiled in the Calgary Herald’s Luxe Homes feature. The couple really know their way around the industry; Lyle’s an experienced contractor who’s built every home his family’s lived in since 1984. So when it came time to down size and find a new place to spend the proverbial golden years, Champagne met all the criteria. Says Lyle in the article, “The construction is well done and so is the finishing. And a lot of the little things that we were really trying to stay away from with a condo unit – like small tub / shower combos, galley kitchens and low ceilings – we were able to avoid.”

The couple’s strong endorsement for Remington is equally flattering: “I don’t think there’s a project built by Remington that they couldn’t be extremely proud of and being in this industry I know the builders and developers pretty well.” Well said, Lyle, and we couldn’t agree more.
