Four communities that deserve to be Calgary’s best

Last week, Avenue Magazine released their annual Calgary’s Best Neighbourhoods List, which ranks our city’s communities based on a survey to citizens online. The top 50 list ranked communities on a number of factors including properties, parks, amenities, walkability and more.


We understand that brand new communities may not have the attention of some of the more established communities in the city, but there were four neighbourhoods missing from the list that we think deserve to be Calgary’s best.

Saddlestone is situated in a community that offers the appeal of urban conveniences with the diverse landscape of natural parks and ponds. The neighbourhood is actually developed on a design that is the first of its kind in Canada, on a fused grid, which promotes an atmosphere that is pedestrian-, environmentally and family-friendly. This innovative approach to community development earned Saddlestone a four-page feature in Canadian Geographic.

The newest phase of the community, Ashbury, consists of 24 townhomes, in three different styles that cater to various budgets and lifestyles. Genesis is proud of the community of Saddlestone, and our showhome is located at 51 Saddlelake Way NE. Click here to learn more about Saddlestone and our homes available there. 

This northwest community is situated north of Symons Valley Road and Stoney Trail, conveniently accessible by major routes. EvansRidge is all about balance, whether you’re a couple starting out, a young family spreading your wings, or an “empty nester” looking for the right mix of easy and active. Surrounded by rustic country charm, yet minutes away from urban amenities, the residents of EvansRidge enjoy a leisurely life in a breathtaking estate home, starter home, or something in between.

Genesis is proud to be building in EvansRidge, and new lots have just been released in the final phase of this brand new community. Click here to find out more information on our models in EvansRidge.

This spectacular new community is located in Calgary’s northwest and is minutes from Shaganappi Trail, just north of Stoney Trail. Sherwood is full of traditional inspired homes using modern building materials and techniques. In recognizing this inspiration, homes in this community take a page from craftsman/arts and crafts, French country and Tudor architecture.

The neighbourhood is conveniently nestles near schools, recreation centres, shopping and golf courses—a great fit for families. Genesis is proud to build in Sherwood, with models ranging from 1,700 to 2,650 square feet. Click here to find more information on our models in Sherwood.

This brand new community is located in Calgary’s northwest, on the northern edge of Symons Valley Road NW. While the nearby parks, greenspaces, ponds and wetlands celebrate that laid-back country feeling, the community’s convenient location ensures you’re never too far from the modern amenities of the big city.
