Park Royal, said Gordon, swept them off their feet and gave them more bang for their buck than they expected. Also factoring into the purchase were the awards Park Royal won including sharing in Canada’s first ever Triple Crown in the home building industry — it’s a part of the Milestone Group of Companies, which recently won the top builder award at the local, provincial and national levels for the same year.
“McConachie Heights is a vibrant young community,” said Colin Wilson, Milestone’s general manager. “There’s lots of construction going on and it’s a sought-after location. Our recent award wins (including the Triple Crown) are bringing in more traffic and people are excited to build with us.”
Park Royal has been in McConachie Heights since the community launched.
“One of the things we’re looking for in a new community is livability — that people have access to the things they need,” added Wilson. “It’s a very well-planned community in a great location.”
Park Royal is building both front-garage and laned homes in McConachie Heights. Front-garage homes start at 1,410 square feet and pricing, including tax, begins at $395,000. For laned homes, they start at 1,096 square feet and pricing begins at under $320,000, tax included.
The neighbourhood is named after Grant McConachie, a pioneering Canadian bush pilot and aviation entrepreneur who lived in Calder (now a part of west-central Edmonton). Anthem’s website notes that McConachie’s aviation work allowed Edmonton to become a hub for flights throughout western North America and, eventually, to Europe, Asia and South America.
