There is a lot of buzz and curiosity around Calgary’s new lakeside community, and everything that is going into developing a new way of living. Here are a few answers as to why it all comes together beautifully at Arbour Lake West.

How do I get to Arbour Lake West?

Be it by vehicle or C-Train, getting to Arbour Lake West is easy.

When can I purchase an Arbour Lake West home?

When will new home construction begin?

We are excited to begin new home construction in early 2020 and anticipate Multi-Family construction to begin later in the summer of 2020. Be sure to keep an eye on our progress anytime you happen to be passing by.

Why buy when I can rent in northwest Calgary?

Buying your first home is a big step, but new homeownership comes with many long-term advantages. With our homes starting in the low-$200s, you can build equity in a place you own, rather than making monthly rent payments to your landlord. Oftentimes, mortgage payments on a new home are equal to, if not less than rent payments. Plus, as a homeowner, you can decorate and renovate your home to define your lifestyle without the hassle of getting the go-ahead from a landlord.

Are there any natural wetlands in the community?


Hopewell is preserving a sustainable 1.15 acre wetland in the North West corner of the development. It can be enjoyed by the residents of Arbour Lake via its public park and pathway that will be built adjacent to the wetland preserve.

How many homes will be built in Arbour Lake West?

An estimated 138 single family Front-Garage homes are planned to be built, with construction having started in late 2020.
