Glenridding Ravine North meet Glenridding Ravine South.
North, the relatively new kid on the block joins its slightly older sibling — South — with this Saturday’s grand opening of its show home parade.
These two residential developments, located in southwest Edmonton, just south of the Anthony Henday and accessed via Rabbit Hill Road, are in essence just different parts of one overall neighbourhood: Glenridding Ravine.
With its adjacent Glenridding in Windermere project now almost sold out, developer Anthem United has brought this on as one of its latest developments. Anthem, known for Trumpeter by Big Lake in northwest Edmonton, Walker Summit in the southeast and McConachie Heights in the northeast, among others, says buyer reaction to Glenridding Ravine has been strong.
“The response has been really good,” said Simona Diep, Anthem’s marketing manager. “People are excited about the different home types that are available as well as the exterior options you can choose from — we’re not restricting this area to a specific style; there’s a wide range from traditional to modern for the exterior of the homes — so we think home buyers appreciate the flexibility and those options.”
Builders in Glenridding Ravine North include Homes by Avi, Landmark Homes, Pacesetter Homes and Parkwood Master Builder, all of whom are building front garage homes, while Montorio Homes will be building townhomes — the show home for the townhomes will open this summer. They join Kirkland Homes, Landmark Homes and Morrison Homes, which are constructing both front garage and laned homes in Glenridding Ravine South, which had its show home grand opening at the end of last September.
Pricing in Glenridding Ravine starts in the low $300,000s.
It’s expected that Glenridding Ravine will take five to seven years to fully build out, meaning completion should be somewhere between 2023 to 2025.
There will be some 715 lots, with 259 of those in Glenridding South and 456 in Glenridding North. Of those, almost 500 will be front garage homes, there will be about 110 laned homes and around 130 townhomes.
“For us, our mission statement is that we create real estate that works,” said Joe Marchese, Anthem’s director of land development. “I would suggest that Glenridding Ravine fits that category where we have land that is not just a place to live but a place to socialize … it’s all about the importance of finding land in a good location.”
The new neighbourhood will also be home to about 5.75 kilometres of walking trails, three parks and two stormwater ponds, in addition to a future school, and possibly a new city of Edmonton recreation centre just across Rabbit Hill Road. There are also plans for a new Edmonton transit centre to be located (not far from the recreation centre), at the intersection of Rabbit Hill Road and 28 Avenue Southwest.
Those amenities are in addition to the immediate proximity to the Anthony Henday and being minutes away from major shopping, dining and entertainment options at Currents of Windermere and nearby centres. Golfers, meanwhile, are right next door to the Jagare Ridge Golf Club.
Future commercial development is planned for Glenridding Ravine, with Glenridding Landing expected to open in the fall of 2020. Plans call for it to include a convenience store and a gas bar, pharmacy, medical clinic and a daycare. Glenridding Ravine also includes three multi-family sites, with the first possibly starting in 2020.
