Those waiting for the unique Blatchford lifestyle can now purchase a townhome and become the first residents in the City of Edmonton’s new central community.
Blatchford’s first home builders have been announced. They share the community’s vision for high-quality, architecturally-designed sustainable buildings. In addition to meeting the high architectural and green building codes set for the community, the builders selected have incorporated additional sustainability features, such as secondary basement and garage suites to increase housing options and affordability, and additional liveability amenities like rooftop decks and accessibility features.
"Blatchford has high sustainability and urban design goals which could not be accomplished without our home builders," said Tom Lumsden, Development Manager, Blatchford. "With the first homes now selling, people now have the chance to buy a home and be a part of this community which will offer a new way to live in our city."
The home builders selling contemporary townhouses, each with a private backyard and back-alley access garages, are:
