And this fall, house hunters will have a hearty lineup of show homes across the Calgary area to explore and compare. From everyone’s first look at Cornerstone to the next wave in established communities such as Mahogany, builders are busy preparing to show buyers what they’re capable of.

Here’s a look at some of the show home parades we can expect to see this fall.


Walton Development and Management will raise the curtain on its 485-hectare community on the northeast corner of the city. With 28 show homes, Cornerstone is set to debut Oct. 15. The community is located just east of SkyView Ranch, which is also by Walton Development.

“The excitement and activity throughout northeast Calgary, including the airport expansion, infrastructure construction, and of course new residential communities — specifically Cornerstone — are really changing the face of this part of Calgary,” says Kendra Milne, vice-president of marketing for Walton.

Cornerstone’s builders are Shane Homes, Jayman Built, Morrison Homes, Truman Homes and Pacesetter by Sterling Homes.

The show homes will be in the duplex, zero lot line, front drive and courtyard segments of the market, says Milne. Courtyard homes are rear-attached garage homes with a side courtyard. Pre-sales for homes in Cornerstone are now available.

Cornerstone is designed in a grid-based road system that will be built out in five neighbourhoods. The community is planned to include commercial and retail sectors, a major activity centre, two transit plazas, 14 kilometres of regional pathways, 32 hectares of wetland, and a combined 38 hectares in park and school spaces.
