Walk the ‘emerald necklace’ at Liberty Landing in Gasoline Alley and take advantage of great parks, green space and natural wetlands.

‘Emerald necklace’ boosts housing and green space in Gasoline Alley

Thoughtful development offers a range of homes in convenient, affordable location

It’s a new era for Gasoline Alley.

The community has been a cornerstone of retail for decades, with big box stores, restaurants and car dealerships drawing shoppers from Red Deer and nearby communities. In recent years professional services like accountants, dentists and lawyers have moved in, further increasing convenience.

There was only one thing missing. A residential community.

“Often residential properties are the first thing to get built and home owners have to wait 10 to 15 years for amenities. This time it’s the opposite —all the services are already here,” says Scott Lamont, project manager for Liberty Landing.

Liberty Landing also brings much-needed green space to Gasoline Alley with walking paths, natural wetlands and parks for local residents. The ‘emerald necklace’ of interconnected green spaces is so nice, Lamont says, people were driving in to use the parks before any of the houses were even built.

“The land is flanked by trees, wetlands and country residential and we intend to keep it that way. There’s a pathway system that loops throughout the community and lots of open space,” Lamont says. Every community he builds emphasizes natural spaces, and the Liberty Landing ‘Green Thumbs Up,’ a $1000 landscape bonus, helps new residents green up their corner of the community.

Where life meets convenience

A previous proposal for the land in Gasoline Alley included aggressive plans for dense residential with condos and apartments, but Liberty Landing has more space and a pleasant mix of single-detached, duplex and town homes great for homeowners in all stages of life. Phase One is nearly complete, and there are still opportunities to build in later phases. Sitting outside the city limits means taxes are significantly cheaper than Red Deer, and home prices are more affordable too.

“There are a lot of employment opportunities in Gasoline Alley that will let you walk to work, but it’s also great for people working remotely,” Lamont says.

Step outside the noise and bustle of city life without sacrificing convenience. Hop on the highway for easy access to Red Deer and Calgary airports, universities and big business, or take a quick stroll to the movie theatre, shopping, schools and restaurants in your new neighbourhood.

“The new indoor farmer’s market is also building in the neighbourhood, and it’s going to be open year-round,” Lamont says.

Find your lot or choose from affordable single family homes, duplexes and town homes at libertylanding.ca. There are homes for a variety of life stages and lifestyles, and every purchase comes with a $1,000 landscape bonus redeemable at Blue Grass Nursery. Questions?
