Qualico’s RidgeWood West Community Moves into Final Phase
Winnipeg, MB – The last phase of Qualico Communities Winnipeg’s RidgeWood West neighbourhood is now underway and will continue to build off of the success of the previous phases completed so far.
Located in Winnipeg’s desirable Charleswood neighbourhood, RidgeWood West offers the perfect mix of connecting with nature and accessing a variety of amenities.
The first house starts in the community were underway in December of 2015, and since then there have been over 450 house starts and more than 400 families have moved into the area. Once all phases are complete, RidgeWood West will have approximately 789 single-family homes and four multi-family projects.
Tara Reid, Sales & Development Manager, Qualico Communities Winnipeg, said one of the main factors in the community’s success is its location.
“This southwest Winnipeg neighbourhood has always been popular,” said Tara. “When RidgeWood West began development, it offered those who grew up in Charleswood a way to come back. Being able to build a new home in an established neighbourhood is always desirable, and when you already have strong ties to the area, it’s even more of a draw.”Aside from the excellent location, the community also provides a variety of lot types and housing products, is connected to beautiful natural areas, and offers easy access to nearby amenities.
The variety of lot types and sizes available in RidgeWood West means that customers are sure to find a home that meets their budget and desired home style/size. They can choose from 36 ft. interior lots to 56 ft. lots that back onto naturalized wetlands, as well as from a variety of lots that back onto a trail system or forested public reserve.
The community also offers multi-family options for those who are looking for a lower maintenance or more affordable home. RidgeWood West includes four sites for condominium projects, the first of which is already underway by StreetSide Developments.
Since RidgeWood West is nestled into an area surrounded by nature, Qualico Communities regularly consulted with city officials, neighbourhood groups, and forestry and wildlife experts while designing the community to ensure proper preservation of the natural landscape that makes the area so special.
“RidgeWood West was designed to retain important tree stands, create naturalized wetlands and provide a trail system to integrate with and supplement the Harte Trail,” said Tara. “The area offers regular glimpses of wildlife and there are plenty of wooded areas and wide-open spaces to explore.”
Nearby amenities include schools, community centres, grocery stores, golf courses, recreational trails, and parks.
The success of RidgeWood West and its impending completion has led Qualico Communities to begin looking towards what the future might hold.
“We know that Charleswood and southwest Winnipeg remain desirable locations,” said Tara, “and we are currently looking for additional development opportunities, now that RidgeWood West is entering its final phase.”
Servicing of the final phase in RidgeWood West has already begun and will be completed in 2021, with community build out expected one to two years later.
