How much are condo fees and what do they cover?

Your condo fees will depend upon the size of your home and the specifics of your community.  With everything they cover, you’ll find the estimated $120 - $200 per month to be some of the best money you’ve ever spent! 
These fees cover insurance, which is estimated to be at least $40 lower each month for a condo than you would pay in a duplex without condo fees.  You’re also covered for grounds maintenance, which costs an average upwards of $300 per year in a non-condo anyway.  A portion of your fee also contributes to the community’s reserve fund for future maintenance and exterior improvements - an important factor in resale value.  Lastly, the professional management of a condo corporation protects the overall appearance of your new community, offering the best level of security for what is probably the biggest investment you’ll ever make.  These expenses would all be a factor in home ownership whether you purchased a condo or non-condo (and in some cases they’d be much higher for the latter). In fact, after calculating the necessary costs of insurance, maintenance, reserve fund contributions and management fees, only about $20-$40 is left over as an actual “fee” - a pretty fair price for the peace of mind and free time condo living affords you.
 
Who will select the interior colours for my home?

One of the benefits of buying your new townhome at the preconstruction stage is that the interior designer is YOU! StreetSide offers a complimentary four-hour design consultation experience at the Award-Winning designQ centre to select the interior colours for your perfect home. If you are seeking a quick possession opportunity, our design experts will have preselected interior colours to maximize on style and value.

Do the exteriors all look the same?

The Edmonton neighbourhoods ALTIUS townhomes are located in enforce architectural controls to ensure cohesive, attractive subdivisions with their own unique character, as well as to ensure value retention amongst the community. While all projects are distinctively ALTIUS, exterior elevation adjustments are made and material selections differ from project to project to compliment ALTIUS' surroundings. Within each project, a variety of colour selections among the townhome blocks enhances the curb appeal of your home.

Where can I tour ALTIUS townhome show homes in Edmonton?
ALTIUS townhome show homes are now open in the new, developing Edmonton communities of Graydon Hill in South West Edmonton, Cy Becker and Crystallina in North East Edmonton, Skyview in central North Edmonton and McLaughlin in Spruce Grove. New townhome sales centre locations in Glenridding in South West Edmonton and Tamarack in South East Edmonton allow you to reserve the perfect lot and your favourite model early in the new townhome construction process.
