Everything from the buildings to the roads has been well thought out in Quarry Park. The buildings and parking lots are projects of crushed and re-used materials and the roads are demolished asphalt, concrete, and aggregate from old roads. Quarry Park West is Alberta’s first privately suburban office to achieve the LEED Gold Certification. All projects are being constructed to a minimum LEED certification, where Remington uses primarily local building materials and can easily be re-used or recycled during construction and at the end of the buildings lifecycle.
Quarry Park has consciously chosen its location for the best sales, growth potential, and employment opportunity. The developer has incorporated important components such as easy transportation in, around, and out. Residents, guests, or employees can walk or cycle within the community on the paved pathways. Quarry Park is also connected to the city’s 700-kilometre pathway system, which makes alternative methods of transportation feasible. The community is accessible from eight transit routes and from all quadrants of the city thanks to its close proximity to Glenmore and Deerfoot trail. There will be more development for the southeast LRT, and the “Green LRT Line,” that parallels the community for convenient transportation.
Surface storm water is naturally filtered through a linear pond system before flowing back to the Bow River with Quarry Park’s overland drainage canals. The 90 acres of green spaces and the 50-acre natural reserve, makes this area a sensible living investment. In fact, Quarry Park experienced no flood damages during the 2013 Calgary flooding. Finally, a feature worth mentioning is the recreational facility that will become open in 2016. This facility includes a fitness centre, running track, gymnasium, and two pools. It will also contain a public library and daycare services. These amenities make Quarry Park a natural choice for families and positive community building.
