High-rise condo at Calgary

Lamb Development Corp. is proud to present The Orchard, a high-rise condo in Calgary that will be anchored by an acre of park space laced with 66 apple trees bearing about 100,000 apples in the middle of the city, taking the concept of green to a whole new level.

The pair of 31-storey, rectangular glass-sheathed towers will be placed 60 metres apart on the west and east corners of the site at right angles to each other, creating a sculptural T, adding architectural interest and allowing for maximum light to flow through, keeping homes light and airy. The towers will house 485 homes, ranging from 521 square feet to almost 2,000 square feet. Designs range from one-bedroom to one-bedroom plus den and two-bedroom plans, along with a collection of penthouse floor plans.

Residents will be able to walk around the orchard, pick an apple or two, find a shaded spot on a park bench, and relax with a book in hand, all while living in a bustling cosmopolitan city. This kind of facility has never been proposed before. For years to come, The Orchard will be the buzz of the developing world.

Transportation

The area has a comprehensive transportation network that comprises road, rail, aviation, public transit, and pedestrian infrastructure, which explains why it received a transit score of 74. Calgary Transit also maintains a bus system that covers the whole city. It is a 10-minute walk from the 201 Red Line-Solitude-Bridlewood/Tuscany CTrain station stop and offers almost 4,500 kilometres of bus routes.

Also, because of its high level of walkability and profusion of transit choices (including public transit access and car-sharing programs), possessing a vehicle in the region is a choice rather than a necessity.

The Calgary condos make superb use of space. The European kitchen is modest yet efficient. Clean, contemporary, and stylish finishes are used throughout. Frosted glass, barn-style sliding doors in both the master bedroom and the den area add a whimsical touch while also creating a sense of extended space. The design promotes fluidity and mobility, making it ideal for entertaining and day-to-day life.

Plus, the Orchard Club, a 5.5-meter glass wall overlooking the apple orchard, will connect the East and West towers. It will hold the club room and fitness center, while the rooftop will have a plunge pool and lounge spaces with outdoor fireplaces and barbeque spaces.
