History

Knightsbridge began as a small housing company in the fall of 1990. Initially the company focused on infill housing in Calgary’s inner city communities of Sunnyside, Hillhurst and Parkhill, as well as larger country residential homes on acreages in the areas surrounding the City. In 1995, Knightsbridge became a single family showhome builder in the then new golf course community of Heritage Pointe. This led to company’s first multi-family project, The Ravine Villas of Heritage Pointe. From here, in 1997 Knightsbridge became involved in the upscale west end community of Elbow Valley as a showhome builder in both multi-family (Hidden Hollow Villas) and single family homes (Diamond Willow Point).

In 2000, the company expanded to another west end upper end community – Aspen Estates with single family showhomes and its multi-family Brownstone project. The year 2002 saw a further expansion as Knightsbridge opened a country residential showhome in the Springbank acreage subdivision of Sterling Springs. Then in 2004, the company returned to Ellbow Valley as a single family showhome builder with the spectacular 8,500sf Sidney Showhome (see VR Tours) complete with 7 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms and 3-floor elevator. The following year, also in Elbow Valley, Knightsbridge opened its Riverside Villa Showhome – a luxury 2100sf semi-detached walk-out bungalow presenting a 22-unit villa project overlooking the river valley.

As well, in 2005, Knightsbridge embarked on its 3-building, 120 unit apartment condominium project, Villa D’Este, in Calgary’s northwest community of Tuscany. This project is currently nearing completion with Phase 3 landscaping to be completed in ’09. From 2006 to 2008, the company opened country acreage estate showhomes in the Springbank communities of Grandview Park and Sterling Springs. Currently, the firm will be breaking ground in the Spring of ’09 on its new acreage showhome in Swift Creek Estates (Springbank) with a scheduled opening for early 2010.
