In real estate, investment in location is everything. Set in magnificent Springbank, Rocky View County, west of Calgary, find yourself close to the city, close to the mountains in a country setting with access to leisure and urban amenities. A historic property formerly owned by the famous Copithorne ranching family and a first-of-its-kind opportunity in one of Canada’s most exclusive districts.

Schools

Schools have always been part of our Master Plan. Rocky View Country’s recent budget identified building a K-8 School in Harmony as a priority. Meanwhile, the respected K-12 Springbank public school system welcomes children who move to Harmony, only a 5-10 minute drive away. More than a half dozen private and charter schools are also nearby, such as Webber Academy, Rundle Collage, and Calgary Academy. The K-12 Edge School for Athletes is less than two minutes away.

Proximity - You're Closer than you think

Harmony is just outside the city limits for a country quality of life. But you are closer than you think to everything that’s important. Only 2-7 minutes to quality schools, 8-10 minutes to city limits, 15 minutes to the Foothills and Children’s Hospital, 20-25 minutes to downtown Calgary – without having to take Deerfoot, Macleod Trail or any of the other stressful commuting channels. And, a beautifully clear immediate ride to Cochrane, Kananaskis, Canmore, Banff, and Rocky Mountain destinations without city congestion.

Trails for Miles & Greenspace

Foot paths, paved paths for jogging and cycling, hiking paths that connect with the larger regional path system, lakeside paths, paths with fitness stations and Interpretive displays along the way — Harmony has over 25 kms of pathways and another nine planned for equestrian pursuits. With over 30% of our 1750 acres preserved as green and open space, there will be plenty of places to run, roam, breathe, and enjoy.

Sustainability & Respect

With a mandate to be “the most holistically planned, sustainably built community” in the region, the utmost planning and respect has been given to the land, landowners, County, and how Harmony has been developed. From ongoing consultation with the local community for over a decade to pioneering a world class water management program. Rehabilitating wetlands to our reforestation plan. And, strategies for builders and homeowners to also practice environmental responsibility and energy efficiencies. We are a community who is tune with what’s needed now. Economic, social, and environmental sustainability.

Master Planning & Age-In-Place Vision

Consulting with the Copithorne family from the start, the vision for Harmony has always been to create a village-style community of various price points and opportunities to connect. Not a parcel of land to subdivide into two-acre properties. Rather, a place where families and empty nesters can find luxury or more affordable homes. Artists and business owners can find work/live Village condos. Seniors can find apartments. It’s a multi-generational vision that even includes, when the time comes, a Seniors Centre with medical care, while their families may actively be living in the same community. More diverse, more dynamic, and a first in Springbank.

Arts and Culture Alongside Active Amenities - The Best of Both worlds

Harmony has made one of the most sizeable Developer investments into public art as the first step of showing we are committed to the ongoing construction, exhibition, and display of permanent and temporary installations, sculptures, performances, and exhibitions of the arts. The Village Centre has a plan for an Arts & Music Centre. The Plaza plans for an outdoor Amphitheatre. Residents, artists, and visitors can expect this to be the gathering place for established and burgeoning artists to gather and display their work.

Canada's First Mickelson National Golf club

The 18-hole Mickelson National Golf Club is Harmony’s next door neighbor. Whether you are an expert or amateur golfer intent on a world class experience designed by PGA champion Phil Mickelson, a family golfer with kids looking to learn, or prefer more relaxed access to the Club House for entertaining, events, dinners, with only occasional golf – this Club is another amazing amenity unique to Harmony found no where else.

Developer Confidence

Calgary-based Bordeaux Developments connected with Elbow River Land Corp., the land-owning descendants of the Copithorne family, more than 12 years ago. Sat at a kitchen table and got honest about the vision of “what community could be.” The family is still a partner today, and after years of extensive community planning and envisioning, Qualico Communities joined the Harmony vision in 2014, pushing the project forward. Qualico, with its 65 years of experience in successful housing and community development, track record across western Canada, and solid reputation – it’s a vision that will be credibly and financially executed.
