Luxury at The River in Calgaryfrom Mike Lemen
The River is becoming known as Calgary’s ultimate luxury residential complex with construction well under way on the residential tower. Completion is expected in 2015 for the tower which will contain 38 homes situated within 16 floors containing one to four suites per floor and 11 three-story townhouses.
The River homes are selling in the range of $820,000 to $8.99 million. Located adjacent to the Elbow River in southern Alberta, Canada, The River residential tower is within walking distance of downtown Calgary.
Featuring a stone cladding at the base and at the tower podium, the tower maximizes views and captures daylight into the suites. The tower has aspects to the north, south, east and west and townhouses are organized with north and south exposures to the river, urban thoroughfares and an inner common courtyard.
Balconies on the townhouses include structural thermal breaks by Schӧck Isokorb®. Cold floors and the risk of moisture issue was not acceptable in a home of this caliber, so developer Ledcor followed the necessary steps to ensure a high-performance envelope for the homes.
Ledcor Properties chose to include structural thermal breaks to ensure comfort in the luxury homes.
Ledcor Properties Inc. has a diversified portfolio of real estate including landmark projects such as Shaw Tower and the Shangri-La Hotel in Vancouver, the Honua Kai Resort in Maui and residential, commercial, office and resort developments throughout North America.
