The pluses minus the minuses.

For many Calgarian families, the realities and requirements of day-to-day living overcome the romantic notion of moving out to the foothills. River Edge lets your wants play together with your needs more than ever before.

Off the grid on some vast, lonely acreage in the foothills? Nope. This architecturally cohesive community will be a real neighbourhood. And it will be more on the grid than most of downtown Calgary. It will boast its own water supply, use sustainable power generation, and light-speed, gigabit fibre Internet. It will be a short commute to both public and private schools, and minutes from Bingham Crossing, the comprehensive shopping and lifestyle centre in the heart of Springbank.

But it will also offer residents stunning views, fresh air, river access, and a refreshing outlook on life that the city can never hope to provide. Hiking, biking, fly fishing, and cross-country skiing will be, quite literally, on the doorstep; Calgary’s top championship level golf course just a short putt away, and everything the Rockies have to offer will be a short, 45-minute drive — with no traffic lights!

At last, a community that will let you have your cake, and eat it too..
