We chose well in Auburn Bay
I’ve been thinking about doing this post for a while now, and it’s finally time! I wanted to tell you about the community of Seton that is blossoming right across the street from our home in Auburn Bay. It’s pretty exciting! The “South Health Campus” (aka the new hospital in Calgary) will be opening it’s first phase in about a month’s time, and ground has now broken on a number of retail areas of the new neighbourhood, just steps from our home.
I’m so excited about the possibilities that this new community offers the residents of Auburn Bay, especially those right across the street from the new hospital like our home is. Several major retail outlets have already signed on to move into Seton, including BMO Bank of Montreal (can you guess which branch I’m hoping to build my career in?) and that’s so exciting!
Here’s a map of the new community… Our home is literally right across the road from the top centre of the map:
Here’s a flyover to give you a better idea of what’s percolating nearby… To put this in context, the large building that is highlighted in blue is the new hospital, and we’re right across the road from that.
And, one more interesting video from before our home was actually built (yet, it almost looks like our home is featured – one of the houses looks identical to ours – colour and all – as they round the first corner of the main gate… we back onto the main boulevard here in Auburn Bay). We live about a block from the lake, which Barry and I definitely need to use more! (ps: have I mentioned I love our street? We have the most awesome neighbours!!)
So. Much. Potential! It’s worth all this dust currently being pushed around, for the final features of the Seton Community only steps from our home.
YOUR TURN: Would you buy a home based on potential neighbourhood features, years away?
