Within walking distance of an affordable housing development approaching occupancy, Steps Bridgeland offers those in the market additional options to live in the neighbourhood. Building upon the area's existing mid-rise typology, the six-storey project by Giustini Development Corporation and Assured Communities Ltd. has now risen above grade, with the presence of formwork signifying the progress at the site.

The development's 122 condominiums come in a variety of shapes and sizes, with studio, one-, and two-bedroom floor plans comprising the bulk of the property at 918 McPherson Square Northeast. Buyers looking for additional space will find a collection of ground-level townhomes and view-rich penthouses also available. The fashionable units come with polished concrete flooring throughout, gourmet stainless steel and wood-front appliances, Italian kitchen cabinetry, and spacious open-air balconies and patios.

The Sturgess Architecture-designed development is composed of four building blocks connected by louvred loggias and enhanced by an internal courtyard where ingress and egress to the underground parking garage will be made possible. Vertical expanses of colour — stretching from one floor plate to the next — will be affixed to the balconies fronting the courtyard. This vivid motif will be replicated within the protruded walls of the cubist balcony spaces that give the development its public face.

The proximity of retailers on 1st Avenue NE and vast green spaces like St. Patrick's Island makes the adoption of a car-free lifestyle easier. With the East Village and the downtown core just a short trip over the river, Calgary's greatest assets are close to home.
