Calgary Community Spotlight: Harmony

Calgary Community Spotlight: Harmony

Harmony, a new lake community west of Calgary, is planned to centre around a 35-acre waterfront village. Located in Springbank, the community is envisioned to have all the best features of rural and suburban living with easy access to Calgary. Harmony is a sustainably built, master-planned community that will offer residences of every type, including artists’ lofts, townhomes, villas and estate homes. The neighbourhoods of Harmony are being created by some of the best builders in the area, beginning with single-family homes and villas.

Builders in the new community are creating traditional and contemporary-styled homes that will blend into a charming and cohesive neighbourhood. The five major style categories are:

  1. Contemporary
  2. Farmhouse
  3. Prairie
  4. Arts & Crafts
  5. French Country

Homeowners and their builders have flexibility within these guidelines to create unique dwellings that reflect their needs and tastes. Here are some of the new home options that are either available or planned for Harmony:

Augusta Fine Homes

Baywest Homes

Broadview Homes

Homes by Avi

NuVista Homes

Sterling Homes

Neighbourhood Green Space

Green space is a hallmark of the planned community, with 25 kilometres of winding trails and walkways planned to take residents from their homes to the Village Center and Mickelson Golf Course. A number of parks and playgrounds will be included in the 600 acres reserved for recreation and conservation. This former ranchland with its inspiring views of the Rockies is less than 30 kilometres west of Calgary, making it possible to live in a natural setting with an easy commute to the city.

Plans for this nearly 8,000-yard-long golf course are based on input from Professional Golfers’ Association of America (PGA) pro Phil Mickelson, winner of five major PGA competitions. The golf course east of Harmony will include varying elevations and challenging water features. The PGA-quality course will be spread over 240 acres and, through the Homeowners Association, all residents will be enrolled in a social membership that includes invitations to all social events and access to the Mickelson National Clubhouse.

Lakefront Lifestyle

Whether homeowners live in the village next to the lake or in other parts of the community, lake access will always be available. The planned boathouse will rent fishing and sailing equipment to make the most of living near a lake well-stocked with fish. Water from the Bow River will flow into the professionally engineered man-made lake system. The pristine lake dovetails with a world-class water treatment facility, and a complete water system has been expertly designed to serve the community.

A 40-acre lake has already been constructed, and the adjoining 100-acre lake is scheduled to be installed as the Harmony Stage 2 development gets underway in 2019. Once the Beach Club has been built, rentals of kayaks and other non-motorized craft will be available for lake enjoyment. When they’re not out on the water, residents will be able to walk from their homes to visit the village shops, have a cup of coffee or enjoy a lakeside dinner.

Country Living with All the Amenities

Owning a home in Harmony will allow families to live in rural paradise and still have access to the job opportunities, culture and nightlife of Calgary. Land has been set aside for the construction of a local elementary school and there will be pocket parks throughout the community. Seventeen show homes are currently on display in this exciting new community.
