Premium rentals mean residents never have to sacrifice quality, location, or amenities. Scott Jendruck, president of Trade Developments, speaks to what makes this company’s latest project, 100 Block West in Morinville, ideal for adults, seniors and families.
“There are a number of features,” says Jendruck. Geothermal heating keeps overall utility costs down, and heat, water, and electricity are included in the rental price. This is important as energy prices are expected to rise. We also use heat recovery technology to heat the parkade.” Additional efficiencies include R32 outside walls and triple pane windows.
“The building is very quiet due to the quality of construction and the mature residents,” adds Jendruck.“It’s also very secure, thanks to key fob access.”
Dawn Konowalyk, the on site resident manager, loves that the building is pet friendly. “Pets are part of the family,” smiles Konowalyk. The pets have plenty to do, see, and explore right out the
doors of 100 Block West. “There is a dog park in town, lots of walking trails, and an animal wellness centre nearby,” she explains.
However, it’s not just the pets loving the good life. She also points to the building’s accessibility with powered front doors, an elevator, and ramps. “In the winter we bring garbage bins into the parkade for people that can’t make it outside,” she notes. “Some of our tenants are seniors with limited mobility; when it’s icy and they have a walker, indoor bins are safer and more convenient.”
While 100 Block West is ideal for adults and seniors, young families enjoy the space too. “The floor plans are quite open,” says Konowalyk, who lives on the premises with two sons. “With four
floor plans to choose from, there is something for everyone.” 100 Block West is ideally located
in Morinville, and close to the town’s museum, churches, relaxing parks, grocers, and other amenities.
“It’s a great place to live. It’s secure. It’s a nice location. People are friendly and the building and
neighbourhood are quiet. It’s a place where I feel you could come home and not lock the door right away,” smiles Konowalyk.
Fatima Haymour, manager of the on-site Morinville Family Medical Clinic and pharmacy, also appreciates the location and management of 100 Block West. A progressive facility, Morinville
Family Medical Clinic’s male and female physicians are currently accepting new patients.
“We have established a family medical home instead of just a centre, explains Haymour. “We
are open six days a week and accommodate walk-ins, so patients don’t have to wait on their own
physician or go to emergency. Our next-door pharmacy is open the same hours as the clinic and the pharmacists communicate with the physicians to ensure optimal care. We have a female physician that runs women’s clinics, and we have future plans for mental health clinics and assisted living home visits.”
Haymour continues, “A lot of people from Morinville and Legal were going to St. Albert for
medical care – we wanted to help a community that was underserved. 100 Block West is the best building in town and we couldn’t be happier to set up the practice where it is the most convenient for the building’s residents and the town.”
