NEW MODULAR APARTMENT COMPLEX IN STRATHMORE CREATES QUALITY, ATTAINABLE HOUSING OPTIONS FOR AN UNDERSERVED MARKET

Posted by admin on December 1st, 2017 | No Comments


FROM DELIVERY TO COMPLETION IN ONLY 4 WEEKS

Hestia Group, a design-build company specializing in the delivery of multi-generational campuses, responds to the demand for quality, cost-effective housing options in Strathmore with the new construction in Sagecourt. The 12-unit modular apartment complex is scheduled to open mid-December, taking an impressive 4 weeks to build from delivery to completion.

Hestia Properties currently offers 42 affordable homes at Sagecourt for low-to-moderate income families and individuals who pre-qualify based on their annual income — often excluding those who fall slightly above the income bracket. Sagecourt’s new modular apartments are below the average Strathmore rental rates for one and two-bedroom homes, making them a high-quality yet attainable option for these same individuals.

Hestia Group believes that quality architecture and thoughtfully designed homes should be available to everyone, and should support the needs of the community. The term modular home refers to the style of construction, not the quality. Modular homes are built to the same specifications as wood frame homes but often surpass the quality of on-site builds because they are made in a controlled environment. In fact, modular builds result in less waste and site disturbance than a standard on-site build, and on average are more energy efficient — reducing heating and cooling costs.

The unique structural durability of modular builds, paired with process efficiency makes them an ideal fit for multi-family communities like Sagecourt in Strathmore.

Condominium laws to be strengthened for Albertans

Posted by admin on May 12th, 2014 | No Comments


Albertans who own condominiums will soon have enhanced protection thanks to a new bill being introduced to improve condominium communities.

This week, the Alberta government introduced Bill 13: The Condominium Property Amendment Act.

“Buying a condo is an affordable option for Albertans entering the housing market and is often their first real estate experience. After careful review and discussion with stakeholders and Albertans, our government will update the Condominium Property Act to make it easier for owners and builders to understand their responsibilities on the sale of condos.”

Doug Griffiths, Minister of Service Alberta

More than 50 amendments to the Act were tabled in the Legislature. Key among the proposed changes are:

  • the creation of a new condominium dispute tribunal;
  • improved disclosure of financial and other necessary information to buyers of new and converted condominiums;
  • updates to qualifications and standards of practice for condominium managers; and,
  • improved governance for condominium corporations.

“These amendments help address the current and future needs of our growing and evolving condominium industry. They will help to ensure best practices for condominium boards and management companies, level the playing field among developers, and protect the rights and property values of purchasers and owners.”

Dr. June A. Donaldson, Co-Founder, Alberta Condominium Owners Association

Work on the regulations, including details about the dispute tribunal and clarification of insurance obligations for corporations and owners, will begin shortly.

In Alberta there are more than 8,000 condominium corporations in operation and condominiums account for approximately 20 per cent of homes sold annually.

Under the Building Alberta Plan, our government is investing in families and communities, living within our means, and opening new markets for Alberta’s resources to ensure we’re able to fund the services Albertans told us matter most to them. We will continue to deliver the responsible change Albertans voted for.
