Located in Cochrane’s core, Greystone will be an inviting, all-ages neighbourhood that combines urban convenience with a small town vibe.
Greystone is a recently approved 140 acre Neighbourhood Plan uniquely situated in downtown Cochrane. It combines small town village charm with an amazing array of conveniences and amenities, all nestled in the surrounding hills adjacent to the Bow River. The community will include diverse home choices, inviting streetscapes, a community plaza and pond, recreational park, walk and cycle paths connected to a river pathway network and easily accessible commercial and recreation services including the Spray Lake Sawmills Family Sports Centre next door. Greystone will also boast Bow River access, western-themed aesthetics and quick access to both Rocky Mountains recreation and Calgary’s big city amenities, as both are just a stone’s throw away.
The adjacent Spray Lake Family Sports Centre is a new 325,000 square foot facility containing a fitness centre, 3 lane indoor track, double gymnasium, indoor turf, aquatic centre, climbing wall, 3 hockey arenas and 6 sheet curling centre capable of hosting such sports as hockey, soccer, curling, ringette, lacrosse, swimming, wrestling and baseball. The Sports Centre also provides a further gathering place for the Greystone community.
Greystone will be an especially inspiring live-work location for technology and idea-based businesses with its inviting high street, hotel, fibre wiring and adjacent recreation facilities and numerous home and living space options. Cochrane is the new satellite home of Garmin and there is a growing trend in the town toward leading edge businesses.
On August 13, 2018, the Greystone Neighbourhood Plan was passed by the Town of Cochrane, providing refined details on the placement of residential, commercial, greenspace and transportation networks. The approved plan is featured below.
