St. Albert Project Updates

Introducing... Sage Gardens!

Congratulations to Serena Hsiung for winning the Name Our Condo Contest and naming our St. Albert condominium development- Sage Gardens! Serena received a 16G iPad with a fancy retina display for her naming efforts. Thanks to all who participated in our contest on Facebook. Stay tuned for more contests and giveaways!

What's Behind the Name?

Sage means a wise person. It is also a light shade of green and a type of plant. Sage reflects our condo development's many eco-friendly features. It also represents the balance between our concern for the environment and green living. Learn more about the name, Sage Gardens, here.

Design of Sage Gardens

Sage Gardens will be 4-storeys tall, offering 1, 2, and 3-bedroom suites. Built in four phases, its uniqueness comes from its sustainable and environmentally-friendly features such as a rooftop garden, efficient heating and ventilation systems, as well as natural lighting.

Vision in the Community

On July 19th, the Vision team volunteered at the Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society. It was a busy and fun-filled Friday afternoon as the team sorted diapers and baby food packages. The team learned about the many steps the Food Bank is taking to provide nutritious and educational meals for the many parents in need. Overall, it was a fun and educational experience!

Tip of the Month

What is a Sustainable Neighbourhood and What's In It For Me?

Sustainable neighbourhoods bring together all aspects of community such as schools, shopping, education and work to create a sense of community while protecting the environment.

Though sustainable neighbourhoods often are associated with the wellness of the environment, such communities can also lead to social and economic benefits attractive to potential homebuyers. Factors such as affordability, accessibility, community and the environment are all important elements of creating a sustainable neighbourhood.

To learn more about the characteristics of a sustainable neighbourhood, check out our blog here.
