Vermilion Hill might be Calgary’s best kept secret

Vermilion Hill is located in southwest Calgary and offers peaceful natural living with beautiful mountain and cityscape views.

Qualico Communities Calgary has been quiet about this new community for the past year and is finally ready to share it with Calgarians. Steps from Fish Creek Provincial Park, a short drive from Bragg Creek and an easy escape from the Rocky Mountains, Vermilion Hill is the perfect place for families who love outdoor adventures.

Over the past year, the development teams have been working to ensure the show homes will be ready for the grand opening showcase on Saturday November 19th. With six award-winning builder partners offering a variety of product types, this new community is ready to impress.

The community will showcase front garage designs from Genesis Builders, Homes by Avi, and Sterling Homes, starting at around $600. Laned models from Broadview Homes, NuVista Homes, and Shane Homes start at $500. NuVista and Shane will also offer duplex homes (also called semi-detached or semi-detached homes) starting at $500.

Vermilion Hill spans over 160 acres with six phases and when complete will have over two miles of trails, four parks, outdoor seating, viewing areas and a future middle school site. Another important feature of this community is the Homeowners Association (OA). Having an OA in the community means there will be a higher level of care and maintenance to ensure it retains its value and appeal. The OA will focus on promoting community engagement with annual events, but will also maintain landscaping, trails and snow removal that the City of Calgary does not perform.

What makes this area amazing is its proximity to many amenities. It is a five-minute drive from the brand new Taza retail development, with Costco as anchor tenant, and 7 Chiefs Sportsplex. It is a 10 minute drive to the Shawnessy Mall which offers many restaurants, grocery stores and entertainment venues.

If the outdoors calls to you, residents won’t have to travel far to enjoy the walking and biking trails of Fish Creek Provincial Park. Hiking to Bragg Creek and the Ann and Sandy Cross Conservation Area is an easy drive. And of course, skiing, climbing and camping at Kananaskis are nearby. However, Vermilion Hill is also a designated Dark Sky community, so you can enjoy the beautiful starry night sky from your own backyard.

The community borders the Tsuut’ina Nation. Qualico Communities continues to work with the Nation as development continues, to build relationships and create a welcoming community for all residents in and around Vermilion Hill.

Now that the secret is out, we welcome you to the community. Come meet the incredible group of builders and community representatives on Saturday, November 19 from 1-5 p.m. For more information about the community, visit
