NEXTHOME: Strong Demand Fuels Growth in Southpoint
October 19, 2020
A great mix of home styles, amenities and location have always been the key focus at Vesta Properties’ Southpoint community in Airdrie, and more home-style choices that will offer an even more stylishly affordable lifestyle are on the way.
This comes even as Vesta Properties enjoyed its strongest sales in years. “The last few months was the busiest we’ve been since 2013,” says Vesta sales manager, AJ van der Linden. “The availability of spec homes in our inventory worked in our favour, especially in Airdrie, where there was a big demand for quick move-ins,” he tells New Home + Condo Guide.
They are about to get busier, as Vesta just released their new lifestyle townhouses in Southpoint. “These lifestyle townhouses will be very popular as they offer great affordability, style and convenience,” he says. Ranging in size from 1,540 to 1,580 square-feet the lifestyle townhouses features attached double garages and come with two- and three-bedroom options. “They also have a handy flex room on the main floor, which is important these days when working from home has become the new norm,” van der Linden says.
Prices are from $299,000 to $324,900, which he says is a terrific value for these fully upgraded homes. “A similar townhome in Calgary will cost about $40,000 more.”
He points out that there are four lifestyle townhouses ready for quick possessions, and eight more will be ready for move-ins by November. Yet, even more are in store for this young community. “Next spring, we will be bringing Phase 3 to market, and we will have five more home styles that we know will be in big demand. This will include duplexes – which we will have in Southpoint for the first time –, new redesigned laned homes, row homes with double detached garages (no condo fees), urban townhomes (no condo fees), and back-to-back townhomes (no condo fees). This added variety of new home styles will provide homes that will fit every budget and lifestyle”
It is no secret why Southpoint has been so successful in just three years since it was launched. Selection, amenities, and location have all played a part.
The 12 acres of greenspace, including parks, tennis court, basketball court and pathways at Southpoint have always been one of the main attractions to the community, and now a new offleash dog park has just opened and will surely add to its appeal. The new K-6 school, Northcott Prairie Elementary School, has opened and is just walking distance from many point in the community.
Southpoint is located off 40th Avenue S.W. Airdrie making it one of the most accessible communities in the city. It has quick access to the Queen Elizabeth-II Highway, Main Street, and multiple transit options. “There are several commercial centres nearby as well, shopping, groceries, entertainment and schools are all within a five-minute drive,” van der Linden says. “Commuting to Calgary is easy too, as the terminal for Airdrie’s express bus routes to downtown and the CrossIron Mills mall runs just outside Southpoint.”
