Synergy of Sky Pointe

Location, location, location is the first thing many buyers think of when looking for a new home. It’s also a catchphrase that has become synonymous with real estate agents as they strive to find the perfect location for each of those buyers.

Synergy is defined as the increased effectiveness that you get when two or more elements work together. When you put location, location, location together with synergy then, you get Synergy of Sky Pointe, a new condo development in northeast of the city of #Calgary and located in the community of Skyview Ranch. It has location down as it’s located at Skyview Ranch Street and Skyview Ranch Drive in the NE and to go one step further, it also has variety in housing and value as well, two other things that today’s buyer is striving to attain.

University District

University City is a collection of buildings that are apartment/condos that were especially created for students. They are small, cheap and furnished with things from IKEA, and they are a great alternative to student housing or staying on campus. You buy one, your child lives in it for the duration of their degree and then either another child can move in or you can sell it for a profit. The buildings have bold colours and they are what they are—student housing.

Not to be confused with University City then is a new development that will soon be getting underway called University District. While it is in close proximity to University City, it is something completely different than anything we have seen before. University District will be located on land that is and always will be owned by the University of #Calgary, which in itself is a first for the province. It will encompass 200 acres and sit on land bordered by the U of C main campus, Shaganappi Trail, the Trans-Canada Highway and 32nd Ave in the Northwest quadrant.

Living in University District will mean you are within walking distance to the U of C, Foothills Medical Center and Alberta Children’s Hospital and, like many new developments it promises to be a mix of both housing types and retail/professional/entertainment spaces.

The Pandrol Clip

Symbol of Strength and Endurance

An important component in keeping Calgary's C-Train system together is the Pandrol Clip.The Pandrol Clip is the part of a railway fastening system developed in 1959 by Norwegian railway engineered Per Pande Rolfsen.

Physically the clip weighs less than two pound and has a diameter of approximately 20 millimetres. However this unique system offers a lightweight, low cost rail fastener where spring and torsion works together to provide a high clamping force - each clip exerts a force of approximately two tonnes on the foot of the rail. This holds the rail foot in place, keeping the rail fastened to the underlying base-plate. The proven benefits of the Pandrol Clip include a very long and virtually maintenance free life. It is safe, secure, can be inserted and removed manually, and will continue to grip the rail under vibration.

Pandrol Clips are now used by hundreds of railway systems around the world.

The Pandrol Clip is a symbol of strength and endurance of Calgary Transit's service to the community.

Home Styles: What’s Your Favourite?

Wouldn’t it be a boring world if every home you saw looked the same? You’d drive down your street and forget which house was yours since it would be identical to the ones on either side of it. There would be no originality, no personal stamp to put on it and there would be nothing interesting about taking a drive to another neighbourhood to see what was new in the housing market. Luckily we do have variety, we do have originality and we do have great minds who design and construct beautiful houses in all different styles. #Traditional, #Contemporary and #Modern are three styles of homes that have their own history and view of how a home should be laid out that all work, all while being different from each other. Which style you prefer all depends on what you want out of your home and what you find aesthetically pleasing. Your home, after all is a reflection of you and as we are all different our homes should be too.

#Hyundai unveiled its new Genesis luxury division in November 2015, along with a new logo and a new vision. As the 2016 North American International Auto Show in #Detroit approaches, it will now have a face to go with the brand. Manfred Fitzgerald, the 52-year-old former director of brand and design at #Lamborghini, has been appointed senior vice president at Genesis.

Genesis is expected to reveal six new vehicles by 2020, starting with the all-new full-size G90 sedan. The G90 takes over as the flagship vehicle of the company from the Hyundai Equus, and is expected to take on the BMW 7 Series and Mercedes-Benz S-Class, among others. It was teased earlier in the year, and shown off in South Korea where it will be called the EQ900. It will make its global debut as the G90 at the 2016 Detroit auto show in early January.

Halloween 2015 Events in #Airdrie and #Calgary

It’s the time of year for witches and superheroes, princesses and ghouls to go Trick or Treating and off to #Halloween parties galore and with Halloween falling on a weekend this year, we certainly got a treat out of the deal. Calgary and Airdrie have plenty of spooky and sometimes scary events to keep even the most skeptical of the bunch entertained on this dark holiday. Some events have been going on since October began, but there is still time to get your scare on. Here then are events for adults, kids and anyone who loves the mysteries that surround the last day of October.

The largest and scariest of the events this upcoming weekend has to be #ScreamFest. It is so scary that it has a PG 13 rating and isn’t recommended for anyone younger than 13, even if they have a strong constitution. No, this is adult scares and thrills at their best as guests take tours around 8 different haunted houses each with a different theme, play spooky carnival games or take to the Neighbours from Hell simulator ride.

The houses this year have themes such as Bates Motel, The Madhouse and Buried Alive (which are charity houses with proceeds going to the Kidney Foundation of southern Alberta), Aliens, Reapers & Grimm and Scary Tales (didn’t you always think fairy tale characters were sweet little innocents?) New to the ScreamFest this year is a haunted house called Clown Town, which just by the title brings on all matter of shudders and spine tingles. Carnival games include the Wheel of Misfortune, Bowels of Hell, Head Hunter and Lose an Eye and of course there is plenty of entertainment as well. ScreamFest is located at Stampede Park and tickets start at $25. October 30 and 31st are the final days and gates open at 7pm both nights.
