University District Presents a New Townhome Project: GUILD by Crystal Creek Homes

GUILD will offer roof top patios and private elevators in 40 residential units spanning six buildings upon completion. 

University District continues to grow its residential offerings with the addition of a new builder, Crystal Creek Homes. Their newest project, GUILD by Crystal Creek Homes (GUILD) will offer 40, two and three-bedroom townhouse units across six buildings, combining elegance and comfort. Each unit will boast over 2,000 sq. ft. private elevators, rooftop patios and double garages, main floor balconies, modern amenities, spacious layouts and sophisticated design elements. GUILD is also anticipated to achieve the BUILT GREEN® Gold certification adding to the community’s sustainability standards.

University District is one of the most innovative communities in Calgary, a place where retail, residential, commercial and recreational offerings can all be found within walking distance. Upon completion, the community will feature approximately 7,100 residential units, 15,000 residents and 300,000 sq. ft. of retail along its Retail Main Street.

Says Novy Cheema, President and CEO of University of Calgary Properties Group, “We continue to focus on developing a complete and mindful community, offering a broad range of high-quality multi-family housing options and an array of unique community amenities for Calgarians. We warmly welcome the innovation in design that Crystal Creek Homes has to offer as our newest builder and look forward to celebrating GUILD as a fitting townhome addition to University District.”

Says Justin Bobier, President and CEO of Crystal Creek Homes, “We believe that University District is one of the city’s most visionary and ambitious projects. They continue to raise the bar with each new development while offering a broad range of amenities, park space and daily conveniences – making it the perfect location for GUILD.”

GUILD will be located on Lebel Cresent NW directly adjacent to the North Pond. Just shy of two acres, the North Pond is an elevated green space designed as a purpose-built stormwater pond with stunning views.

Adds Bobier, “We proudly construct every premium home with a foundation rooted in passion, innovation, and quality. Our homes go beyond bricks and mortar, they embody comfort, style, and most importantly, they bring our homeowner’s vision to life. It’s an innovative approach perfectly aligned with the vision of University District.”

A public builder launch event will take place on Saturday, May 4, 2024 from 12 – 5 p.m. at the University District Discovery Centre to celebrate the launch of GUILD and Crystal Creek Homes’ new show suite. Deposits will be accepted for available units.
