Mattamy Homes Brings New Townhome Architectural Style To Alberta Community

Ground broken on latest development in Airdrie: The Gates at Hillcrest

CALGARY, April 14, 2016 /CNW/ - Award-winning builder Mattamy Homes has broken ground on construction and launched sales of its latest community in the City of Airdrie, AB: The Gates at Hillcrest. The Gates will consist of 159 Townhomes and introduces Mattamy's newest product, Manor Townhomes.

Mattamy, which has grown into North America's largest privately owned homebuilder, first entered the Airdrie market in 2009 with the Windsong community (now home to 4,000 residents) and more recently in 2014 introduced Southwinds to Airdrie. The Gates at Hillcrest is located directly east of Southwinds, across the 8th Street corridor.

"Our objective with this community was to provide a new Townhome style that provided additional living space and architectural styling with the added benefit of a liveable backyard for every townhome." says Warren Saunders, VP Sales & Marketing for Mattamy's Calgary Division. "This is an opportunity for homebuyers to experience a Townhome community that incorporates the philosophy and design that our larger master-planned communities provide."

The Gates at Hillcrest features a new Manor Townhome, with 2-storey, front-attached garage homes ranging from 1,471 to 1,698 square feet, and introductory pricing starting at $299,990. Features and amenities of all homes include:

  • 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms
  • Upper-floor laundry
  • Open-concept main floor
  • Private front verandah
  • Generous rear yards
  • Master walk-in closet and ensuite
  • Prairie, Craftsman, Arts & Crafts, Tudor Architectural styles
  • Walkout lot availability
  • Access to community and regional pathways


The Gates at Hillcrest incorporates natural elements and modern design into the community. A natural wetland located in the southwest corner connects to one of the largest retained wetlands in Airdrie. The Gates at Hillcrest is inclusive of the larger community of Hillcrest, which includes pathways, parks and a future elementary school site.

"Mattamy is very proud of its roots in Airdrie, and we are excited to be able deliver this type of Townhome community, which complements our already popular Airdrie communities of Southwinds and Windsong," says Don Barrineau, President of Mattamy's Calgary Division. "Certainly we've all been experiencing a challenging economy and housing market, but we see The Gates at Hillcrest as presenting a unique option for homebuyers and anticipate that interest levels will be high."

The Gates at Hillcrest Townhomes are currently for sale, with occupancy anticipated for the Spring of 2017.
