Dream Developments: Welcome to a dream community

For more than 33 years, Dream Development has created family focused communities of superb quality and architectural integrity across greater Edmonton. Today, that legacy continues to grow in two of southeast Edmonton’s most popular and preferred neighbourhoods – Maple Crest and Laurel Green.

Maple Crest, a natural playground

What immediately defines Maple Crest is the natural beauty that greets you on arrival. One of the city’s largest amenities, a 75-acre natural reserve, is the community’s centrepiece. This expansive greenspace is bordered by paved tree lined paths and features developed park sites, rest areas and nesting islands for migrating birds. It is also home for dozens of small animals and a number of plant species that have made the reserve into a “living museum” where children can safely observe and experience nature up close and personal.

This vast amenity was created by sculpting and improving the Fulton Marsh wetlands from a brownfield into a bustling lifestyle area frequented by many residents. A mature wooded ravine is located just south of the reserve. It winds through the community and provides an extensive trail network that accommodates seasonal activities while also connecting users with Edmonton’s world famous walking path system.

A new playground, introduced in spring 2016, is another popular gathering place for families and friends. Its array of play structures and outdoor games encourages children to get outside and enjoy wholesome healthy fun while learning at the same time. A park situated around the playground has more than an acre of manicured recreation space for games and activities, plus a toboggan hill for winter entertainment.

Life in Maple Crest is also very convenient. It has a superb location, south of Whitemud Drive and Anthony Henday Drive. This gives residents quick easy access everywhere in the city. There are also many shopping and daily service destinations located within walking distance of homes. Dream Tamarack, a burgeoning commercial district just east of Maple Crest, hosts national retailers, local shops and stores, a fitness centre, restaurants and services and much more.

Excellent transit service is also located within easy walking distance of homes via the Meadows Transit Centre, a major hub for bus service located just west of the community.

Homes for every budget

Maple Crest has a superior selection of home styles designed and priced to fit almost every family’s lifestyle and budget.

Townhomes, in either attached or detached garage orientations, are available from the mid $290’s to $330’s. These include unique street townhomes from Homes by Avi that do not have condo fees and attached garage designs in Maple Way Gardens. Award-winning duplex layouts are available through four professional master builders, including Bedrock Homes, Coventry Homes, Landmark Homes and Look Homes, with prices starting in the $330’s.

Laned single-family homes with rear detached garages, crafted by Landmark Homes, combine privacy, peace of mind and zero lot line efficiency with pricing in the $350’s. Plus, there’s a great selection of move-up and executive attached garage homes, with today’s most progressive design and decor innovations, starting in the low $400’s. These homes are built by Bedrock Homes, Coventry Homes and Crystal Creek Homes.

Seven new showhomes opening in May

Maple Crest will unveil seven new showhomes at its Grand Opening, Saturday, May 27 from noon to 5 p.m. These traditional and contemporary home designs complement nine existing showhomes to create southeast Edmonton’s largest selection of models, with 16 available to view.

Bring the whole family to visit these showhomes and enjoy a day of fun that includes games and activities in the park, three food trucks, a face painter and balloon twister, incredible prizes, plus lots of handouts and gifts for guests. For more information, visit livemaplecrest.ca.

Laurel Green, design innovation & lifestyle excellence

Laurel Greens’ convenient location, innovative community design and excellent builder selection have made it one of southeast Edmonton’s most popular and best-selling new neighbourhoods.

Located at the corner of 17 Street and 23 Avenue, it features easy access to incredible recreational amenities and the convenient shopping and services of two major commercial destinations.

Meadows Recreation Centre is the city’s newest and most comprehensive sports, wellness and cultural centre. Its twin arenas, swimming pools, baseball diamonds, soccer pitches, gymnasiums, recreation programs and event rooms are just a five minute walk from Laurel Green.

Within the community, residents enjoy the beauty of an oversized park and pond area that features an integrated walking path system. These paved paths, appointed with landscaped gardens and trees, connect the many innovative pocket parks, greenspaces and residences throughout the neighbourhood. An oversized central park acts as an intersection for the path network and hosts picnic tables, recreational space and a children’s playground. It’s the perfect family gathering area where residents can bond with their children and socialize with neighbours.

Stage 15 will see the introduction of a progressive streetscape design for narrow lot single-family homes that front onto a developed park and activity area. The park will be fully landscaped with walkways and floral gardens, and will also boast some small play structures.

September 2017 will see the opening of the new Svend Hansen K to 9 public school. Located about six blocks south of the central park this state of the art institution accommodates 900 students and is located at 16 Avenue and 24 Street.

A great year for new showhomes & builders

This spring, Laurel Green has hosted the introduction of new showhomes and builders.

Landmark Homes recently opened two new detached garage showhomes with prices starting from the $360’s.

Crystal Creek Homes and Estrella Homes, both new builders in the community, have completed duplex showhomes with prices from the $340’s. Urban Luxury Homes will open another duplex showhome later this spring. Supplementing these models is Laurel Green’s first executive attached garage showhome crafted by Art Custom Homes.

These new model homes complement existing duplex showhomes operated by Lincolnberg Homes. There are also existing townhome showhomes, including a collection of freehold street townhomes from Homes by Avi and some efficient attached garage townhomes from Landmark Homes.
