April 20, 2015 (Calgary, AB) – Macdonald Development Corporation’s Watermark at Bearspaw development in Calgary, AB has been awarded the 2014 Canadian Homebuilders’ Association Calgary Region (CHBA) Sales and Marketing (SAM) Award for Community of the Year – Calgary Region recognizing Macdonald Development’s commitment to developing a distinctive community using innovative technology and construction, as well as a commitment to excellence in new homes, design and construction. This is the third consecutive year that Watermark has won the award. Watermark was previously recognized as the New Community of the Year for Calgary in 2012, as well as taking home the award for Best Community in all of Canada for two years in a row at the 2012 and 2013 National SAM Awards.
“This award is shared with the proud residents who call Watermark home,” says Ian Macdonald, Director of Sales & Marketing for Watermark at Bearspaw. “Along with our tremendously talented Builder partners Astoria Custom Homes, Albi Homes, Trickle Creek Custom Homes and Wolf Custom Homes, we endeavor to exceed expectations while providing a wonderful home and an amenity rich neighborhood for families.”
The Villas at Watermark, a 101 semi-detached luxury Villa component of the Watermark community, has been awarded the 2014 CHBA SAM Award for Best Multi Family Community recognizing Macdonald Development’s distinctive design, architectural theme, special features, community amenities and overall impact of the development. In addition the Villas sales team, Louise Willerton, Pam Hamilton and Ian Macdonald, were honored by placing 4th in Calgary for Sales Team of the Year – Multi-Family.
“This truly unique setting has awarded us an opportunity to deliver an exceptional Villa home to our current and future residents who were searching for the view of a lifetime,” says Macdonald, referring to the spectacular backdrop of the Rocky Mountains visible from the main floor of each Villa. Macdonald Development recently released the 4th and final phase of the Villas at Watermark, which are now 85% sold out.
Located twenty minutes to the northwest of Calgary’s downtown core, Watermark at Bearspaw is a masterplanned community comprised of single-family lots and attached walkout villa homes, the Villas at Watermark, which are the fastest selling multifamily offering in Calgary. With the Rockies as its backdrop, the community plan offers residents gathering places within its Central Plaza with outdoor social areas, while promoting active living throughout 5km of paved trails, playgrounds and an NBA-sized sports court.
Having brought developments like Watermark at Bearspaw to the market for the last 25 years, Macdonald Development has an acute sense for what it takes to produce award-winning masterplanned communities.
