    Default Massive multi-million dollar family home rising west of Calgary

    Should have built a smaller house and hired someone to design it. Look like they just used a basic hotel blueprint.

    It's got solar panels, so it's all good.

    CTV new reporters need to work on their Google skills. Put in 'Ernest Hon' and I comes up showing he is the directo of sales and marketing of Hon Developments (The Guardian).

    I drove by that place on my way to my camp site during May long. I thought it looked like a small hotel, but with the huge garage it almost looked like an government building with room to store fleet vehicles. Definitely didn't expect it to be a single family home.

    That video doesn't do it justice, the place is ridiculously large when seen in person. I wonder what's going to be stored inside that garage ...

    ya been watching that thing for the last year or so, they put up the massive towers last fall... it looks like a hotel for sure. And with an awesome view of highway 22..

    I think it's also a bit down in the valley so no amazing mtn view

    Not my taste, but hey, if they got the cash I don't see the problem.

    I don't understand why somebody would build a house that size out of plywood and sticks. Why not make something that will last more than 75 years before it rots into the ground?

    As for design, the new home that is North closer to the overpass is a much more elegant design and has multiple buildings, not just one large apartment block.

    I heard from friends who live in Redwood Meadows that the house might be for the Shaw family.

    A little more research on Calgary Puck..

    http://forum.calgarypuck.com/showthread.php?t=107816


    from that thread:

    Arriva was bought out by Jager Homes/ and Nicholas is the son who will be in charge of the development in Calgary as his dad looks after their real estate in Asia. He is in his 20's and has to have over 3 million in vehicles parked at ArriVa. Everything from Lambo's to Ferrari's to a Rolls Royce. I think he even has a couple Range Rovers? maybe one for even/odd days of the month? lol

    Would explain the need for all those garages and security.

    To me that house is retarded, lacks style or cadence, its just an overly huge house, which would likely never be anymore then 1/10th used realistically speaking.

    Its merely an extension of the guys ego.

    That has to be pushing well over $3.1 Million. We just financed a project not far from there that would fit in the foyer of that Mansion for $2M+ on only 4 acres.

    The gateway/entrance area "security" towers probably have 2x the SQFT of my condo alone.

    But yea, thats a retarded location for a mansion IMO. Most of the (smart) well off tend to avoid publicity. Good luck.

    I've seen the entrance also and I already thought it's going to be like a mansion lol.

    It's off highway 22 near the roundabout; seen it coming from Banff on the way home. I'm actually kinda surprise such kind of home is being built here for some reason lol.
    Watch the cat for different holiday hats!
