New Calgary community Hudson at Creekstone promises to put nature first
The new southwest community of Hudson in Creekstone makes the most of its spectacular setting – perched on a ridge overlooking the Pine Creek coulee with the Rocky Mountains in the distance.
Dennis Inglis, development manager with Highfield Land Management, says the community’s location alongside a protected reserve means its scenic surroundings are here to stay, unlike some new communities where development eventually encroaches on natural lands. “What you see in Hudson when you look over the top of the escarpment today is what you’re going to see in the future,” said Inglis. “I think it’s stunning.”
Located just south of 210th Avenue S.W., Hudson in Creekstone will have more than 50 per cent of its land base preserved as environmental reserve.
Since there are abundant shopping opportunities and essential services available in other nearby communities, Inglis says it was decided Hudson in Creekstone would remain a residential community where nature comes first. “We didn’t think that we would want to put a commercial amenity in this kind of atmosphere, with the valleys and the view sheds that we have here,” he said.
