CALGARY, Oct. 29, 2015 /CNW/ - Mattamy Homes, North America's largest privately owned homebuilder, is pleased to announce that earthworks and construction has commenced on the company's newest master-planned community of Carrington in northwest Calgary. Carrington is Mattamy's second community in the City of Calgary and is conveniently located north of Stoney Trail and east of 14th Street NW.
"We are very honored and excited to be creating a fresh new community for Calgary" says Don Barrineau, Division President for Mattamy Homes in Calgary.
Carrington will feature 19 acres of park space, 19 acres of naturalized storm water ponds and more than 10 acres of environmental reserve. Carrington has incorporated a walkable neighborhood design with destinations in mind for active lifestyles. Some of these elements include a "green corridor" and urban pathway system that will run the entire east boundary, an existing natural area and will feature the 138-km Rotary/Mattamy Greenway and Greenway Park at the heart of the first phase.
Barrineau notes that "as always, we've extensively researched the market for Carrington. The community will embody Mattamy's unique streetscape designs and encompass a variety of townhomes and single-family, front-drive garage homes, as well as several new product types and architectural styles that will be announced when we open for sales in 2016."
Carrington will be one of the largest master-planned communities in Calgary's northwest, and at completion will consist of more than 3,400 homes and take an estimated 10 years to complete. Mattamy is now open for priority registrations for Carrington. Please visit http://mattamyhomes.com/calgary/Register.
