Attainable Homes is purchasing a vacant parcel of land (pictured below) next to the Genesis Centre from The City of Calgary. Our proposed development would include multi-family housing for both purchasers through our program as well as market buyers.
We are only at the rezoning stage of the process and have not yet contracted an architect. We do know that the style of the development will be in keeping with the professional quality with which Attainable Homes is known. The site would comprise mainly townhomes and possibly four-storey apartment-style condominium buildings.
Who will live here?
We exist to provide homeownership affordability options to moderate-income Calgarians. These homes will be made available to our hard-working clients who dream of homeownership but struggle to save for a down payment. We provide a gifted down payment in the form of an investment partnership to households with a gross income less than $90,000.
The builder partner we work with will also have the opportunity to offer apartment-style condominiums to full-market purchasers.
Upcoming Open House
We welcome members of the community to become more informed about this project at an upcoming open house. Representatives from Attainable Homes and The City of Calgary will be on hand to answer your questions.
Monday, March 13th 5-8pm
Genesis Centre, Room A (7555 Falconridge Blvd NE)
To date, we have introduced ourselves to the community associations of Martindale, Saddle Ridge and Taradale and continued to provide updates as we progress through the re-zoning application process. As well, we continue to meet with the North East Centre of Community Society to provide updates and hear feedback.
Assuming the rezoning application is approved, we look forward to furthering our community engagement including focus groups to help inform us of the housing needs unique to the variety of cultures that live in the area. Being a good neighbour is important to us and we will do our best to ensure the community has a chance to provide feedback once we have a proposed design.
We are an independent, non-profit organization owned by The City of Calgary. We improved the life trajectories for Calgarians striving to achieve quality homeownership when they never thought it was financially possible.
WE MAKE HOME OWNERSHIP HAPPEN
Attainable Homes Calgary Corporation (AHCC) is a nonprofit social enterprise and wholly owned subsidiary of The City of Calgary that delivers well-appointed, entry-level homes for Calgarians who have been caught in the city’s growing housing affordability gap.
Through our Attainable Home Ownership Program, we connect builders, developers, lenders, lawyers and others to bring down the upfront costs of ownership so qualifying Calgarians can buy their very own home with a $2,000 down payment. Furthermore, when you decide to buy an attainable home, you're also choosing to pay it forward to help another family in the future. When you eventually decide to refinance or sell your home on the market, a share of the appreciation goes back into the program to fund more developments that will help even more people get a foot on the property ladder.
Do you aspire to own a home of your own? Contact us today and let us show you just how attainable this milestone can be.
