Why You Need to Add Seton to Your Home Search
Calgary’s southeast end of the city has been growing at an exponential rate over the last several years with no signs of slowing down. The newest neighbourhood, Seton, brings a whole new vibe to Calgary’s south. Seton is being developed to be a self-contained modern urban community with quick and easy access being the core focus. What this means is the community of Seton will act as a sort of suburban downtown, which is perfect for families and individuals alike looking for convenient city living away from the hustle and bustle of the downtown core and the reason why you need to add Seton to your home search.
The Future Heart of South East Calgary
The goal of the developers in Seton is to create a walkable neighbourhood that has quick access to shopping, entertainment, health care and transportation right out your front door. A goal they are set to achieve with the addition with the South Health Campus, the new Brookfield Residential YMCA at Seton and the Seton Cineplex Cinema which already offer so much to the community. Not to mention the many different dining and grocery shopping options.
The total area of Seton is set to 165 hectares, when broken down that equates to more than 1 million square feet of retail space, 1.5 million square feet of office space, approximately 1,300 multi-family housing units, a seven-acre regional park, a 230,000 square foot recreation centre, a public library, high school, greenspace and of course the South Health Campus.
Seton’s Potential Keeps Growing
With Seton set to be the core of southeast Calgary not only will it provide everything for the approximate 3,000 residents who will live there but it will also serve the surrounding communities of Auburn Bay, Cranston and Mahogany along with future southeast developments. It will also serve as easy access to city services for surrounding small towns like De Winton.
“Seton is also a great location for those looking to invest in a property. With its proximity to health services and senior care facilities it is a prime spot for both short and long-term rental properties for those who may need to be near relatives while in care.”
Development of Seton is moving along at a steady pace and is expected to be completed by 2021 according to Brookfield Residential. Home prices provide lots of opportunities for a wide variety of people including first time home buyers, families and those looking to invest in a property. Homes in Seton range from under $200,000 upward to around $500,000 so there are plenty of options available to people at every stage in life.
If you’re hoping to invest in a home that is affordable, conveniently located and is in an area with a ton of future potential we would highly suggest you focus your search towards Calgary’s southeast communities and Seton.
