Become transfixed by the soothing sounds of a custom water feature in your backyard.
Explore the flora and fauna lining Homestead Brook.
Take in the view of downtown, and just steps from your backyard the community park water features and gazebo are yours to enjoy.
Development properties at Devonian Ridge Estates are available now. Purchasers do not have a building commitment. They are welcome to just come out and enjoy the property's amenities - swimming, fishing, golfing, hiking and boating.
Every home is required to follow a rustic contemporary exterior design, and only certain lots allow for a two-story build while others allow for a bungalow. These controls make sure what you love about your property, whether it’s the view or the intimacy with nature, isn’t interrupted by anyone else.
The 23-acre property was purchased in 2017 and has undergone all required technical studies led by Westhoff Engineering Resources Inc, Bunt & Associates, Curtis GEO Solutions Inc, and Groundwater Information Technologies Ltd. Several development concepts have also been studied before arriving at our current plan, shaped in partnership with Rocky View County.
Public engagement and a formal community Open House were held in August and September 2018. Technical studies and public comments have been included in a land use re-designation application to Rocky View County from Agricultural Holdings (AH) to Residential (R-1), in keeping with much of the surrounding residential properties.
A public hearing is expected at Rocky View County early in 2019.Get in touch
The lots will be serviced by individual water wells. All 11 lots will have a well drilled and tested according to County and Provincial standards.
The Phase 1 supply report for the site indicates that average aquifer conditions in the area should have sufficient water to provide water needs for the lots as specified in the Water Act of 1,250 m/year without causing adverse effects to existing domestic, licensed or traditional groundwater users in the area.
Each new lot will feature individual sewage treatment and septic fields.
Packaged sewer treatment system meeting BNQ Standards will be required for each new residence to comply with Alberta Environment and Parks (AEP) and Rocky View County standards.
The storm water pond in the southeast corner of the property, will be designed to provide the dual function as a water reservoir equipped with a dry hydrant for fire suppression. The pond will be a key landscape feature of the community’s Homestead Park.
Our storm water management plan is in accordance with the Springbank Master Drainage Plan (MPE, 2013). We propose an overland drainage system without an underground piping system to achieve volume and water quality targets.
Each lot will manage storm runoff on its site individually with the use of low impact development technologies (LID’s) and best management practices (BMP’s). Use of absorptive landscaping and trap lows will be incorporated to promote infiltration, evapotranspiration and improvement of water quality, and to reduce water volumes for discharge downstream. The system provides peak rate control to minimize flood risk. A storm water pond will also be created in the southeast corner of the site.
Bunt & Associates Engineering Ltd. conducted a Traffic Impact Assessment (TIA) and concluded the proposed development would generate eight AM peak hour trips and 10 PM peak hour trips. No external road way or intersection upgrades are required to accommodate the proposed development.
Reducing our ecological footprint is important to the community, and therefore we support green initiatives at the Ridge. We encourage the use of renewable energy sources to power the Devonian Ridge community such as solar panels and geothermal energy, as well as attempting to re-use as much plant material as possible.
