Whether you have school-aged children and want to take advantage of the community's security and high-quality schools or not, Cornerstone has something to appeal to anyone looking to make a step up in the housing world.

About Cornerstone

Situated in Northeast Calgary, Cornerstone is a distinctive new community that forms an integral part of the city’s backbone. This special area is actually a hybrid community of five neighbourhoods, each of which has its own benefits and characteristics.

Work and recreation intermingle beautifully in the neighbourhood of Gate, which lies at the centre of Cornerstone and has paths that branch out into the surrounding four neighbourhoods. The neighbourhoods of Point and Park are alive with lush greenery and natural landscapes, with winding trails that twist through expansive wetlands.

Last but not least, the Ridge and View neighbourhoods will have entertainment centres, easy access to the Calgary LRT system, and breathtaking vistas of the Rocky Mountains to round out the attractions the fabulous Cornerstone community has to offer.

The homes in Cornerstone offer a blend of both modern and classical architectural elements. Houses with traditional builds and sizes are set off with progressive features to create a comfortably familiar, yet fresh look that sets them apart from homes in other communities.

The features that lend a touch of modern flair include wide ornamental glass window designs and other unique details that refresh the conventional forms of the houses. Some of these details include things like exotic overhangs and trellises, metal columns, roof highlights, and retaining walls, among others. Stylistic outside add-ons such as ornate address markers, mailboxes, and lamp posts, complement the overall image.

A sense of balance and unity is maintained in Cornerstone, with the support of contemporary prairie elevations that regularly appear throughout each of the five subsections. The Modern Prairie elevation styles blend with a well-defined city Brownstone style that spreads outward through all five neighbourhoods.

Spacious Yards and Lot Variety

The homes in Cornerstone's neighbourhoods have large lots that provide you and your family all the comfortable space you've been craving. You can select from five different lot styles: Front drive (classic style with front yard access only), duplex (which pairs two homes on one lot to reduce costs), street-oriented (which has urban-style townhomes), courtyard (a unique rear-attached design with side courtyards), and zero lot (which has both front and rear access).
