A mature,  urban riverside location with the amenities and product range found in suburban neighbourhoods – what’s not to love? With the latest residential opportunity just released, Quarry Park is sure to figure much more prominently on buyers’ radar very quickly.

Remington’s new development, The Gates, is a 32-unit boutique project designed to take advantage of the grandeur of the community’s abundant natural surroundings while providing buyers with the space and style absent in most downtown projects.

Priced from the $290,000s to $400,000s, the homes are a real draw for first time homebuyers who either work in Quarry Park or who want to avoid the lengthy commutes indicative of suburban developments. But it’s not only entrants into the real estate market who should take a serious look at The Gates. The residences are also ideal for people who want to free up equity in their estate homes without compromising style or ample space.

Three condo sizes are available, including the 770-square-foot one-bedrooms plus den, the 1,000 to 1,100-square-foot two-bedroom and the 1,300-square-foot three-bedroom. Regardless of size, each floor plan offers functionality and plenty of intelligently planned storage – even one-bedroom plus den units can comfortably fit a king sized bed. In addition to the ample storage in each suite, every purchase includes an extra storage unit in the heated underground parkade. Residents are provided with underground parking and two or three bedroom buyers can purchase a second stall on a limited basis.

Complementing the open space plan are high quality interior design and finishes. Five-piece doors and drawers harmonize with the classic architecture of the home and the well-appointed kitchens come standard with granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, a pantry and an island. All units also feature a multi-purpose area where homeowners can set up a personalized space such as a media or tech centre.

These areas are networked to a series of beautiful parks and 15 kms of community pathways that connect from Fish Creek Park to Carburn Park.

How Engineering Protects Quarry Park

Remington's extensive flood protection program protected the community during the province's worst flooding on record.

Remington’s extensive flood protection program protected the community during the province’s worst flooding on record.

The 2013 floods in southern Alberta are the worst natural disaster in the province’s history. To the thousands impacted we offer our sincerest condolences. And to those rethinking a move to a riverside community in Calgary we offer this reassurance: Quarry Park did not flood. Despite backing onto the largest river in the city during the most destructive flood in history, the entire community remained intact. Some may chalk this up to luck but we know exactly why the community and its residents stayed dry. And we have the Dutch to thank for it.

Quarry Park is similar to what’s known as a polder; these are low-lying areas that are either reclaimed from a body of water or surrounded by water to some degree. You’ll find many polders in the Netherlands and other seaside countries. While Quarry Park’s risk profile is much less severe than a country that’s partially below sea-level, as the Netherlands is, the same basic principals of flood prevention apply to our community. That’s why our engineers studied polders extensively when planning Quarry Park.

Quarry Park is designed to withstand a one-in-100 year flood event – a measurement used by experts to design a community past the reach of extreme flood conditions with a one per cent probability of occurring in a given year. We’re very proud to say those measures kept the river at bay and our community safe from disaster:

  • Insulated, reinforced and landscaped rip rap berm built at one metre above one-in-100 year flood level
  • Stormwater lift station to discharge rainwater into the Bow River
  • Overland canals to divert and filter water

Residents, tenants and guests can be assured that Remington has taken every reasonable precaution to preserve and protect Quarry Park – both today and for the
next 100 years. If you have specific questions about Quarry Park’s flood protection program, or any other features that make Quarry Park unique, we invite you to contact us today.
