The perfect fit: An Origin active lifestyle community opens in a world-class setting by Colin Milner
The Canadian Rocky Mountains have become a destination for individuals who love the outdoors as well as those who seek adventure throughout the year. Skiing, snowshoeing, ice or rock climbing, mountain biking, hiking, fishing, kayaking—there’s no better place to experience active mountain living than in the Alberta towns of Canmore and Banff, Lake Louise and Jasper. These alpine communities are not only filled with trendy shops, art galleries, hotels and restaurants, but also offer plenty of activities, festivals, and arts and cultural events. Yet few developers have considered the region as a destination for retirement living. Until now. Neil Prashad and Frank Kernick have precisely this vision for Canmore, a former mining town located 50 miles west of Calgary in the scenic Bow Valley.
