During 2010, the new Inglewood Manor at 11424 - 124 Street was completed and occupied. Construction was preceded by demolition of three single family houses dating from 1930's, the remnants of an earlier time when 124 Street had a residential character of smaller scale.
The Inglewood Manor is a 4 - storey building which includes 7 Studio apartments, 28 one bedroom units and 9 two bedroom units. Barrier free units are provided to meet the Alberta Building Code requirements, and the building amenities include a multi-purpose room on the ground floor. Vehicular parking is provided both at grade behind the building, and in a single level underground parking garage which accommodates 42 vehicles. Both the grade level and underground parking are accessed from the lane west of the building , which was upgraded to current City standards as part of the project.
The building is a wood frame structure which includes enhanced wall and roof insulation, as well as a low maintenance stucco exterior finish. Energy saving features included a heat recovery system, energy efficient lighting, new Energy Star appliances and make-up air ducted individually to the suites. The building is fully sprinklered. Efforts have been made to employ a colourful palette of maintainable interior materials in the common areas of the building, while suite interiors have a bright ambiance provided by the large exterior windows.
The Inglewood Manor has a well landscaped site which has been designed for low maintenance. This project enhances the streetscape of 124 Street and up-dates the neighbourhood with a fresh contemporary appearance. Residents will be able to enjoy both the quiet of the Inglewood neighbourhood as well as the commercial activity of the 124 Street environment, by this well-sited quality project.
