Montane homeowners Terry and Jeremiah Macgregor with Parastone partners Tony Dennis and Jason Smith

Parastone breaks ground on new development

Home construction begins at Montane the new community next to downtown in Fernie.

Home construction begins at Montane the new community next to downtown in Fernie.

Parastone Developments broke ground on the first home in its new community on Oct. 30. Construction has begun on the first home in the community’s first neighbourhood, The Terraces.

Parastone partners Tony Dennis and Jason Smith were on-site for the groundbreaking, and were joined by Deputy Mayor Jon Levesque and homeowner Jeremiah Macgregor with wife, Terry.

“We’re excited to begin construction on the closest new community to downtown Fernie,” said Tony Dennis, developer and investor in Montane. “Now that we’ve reached this milestone, we’re going to start to see our vision turn into a reality. More homeowners will be breaking ground before winter sets in.”

Jeremiah Macgregor and his family were one of the first homebuyers at Montane. Raised in Elkford, Macgregor and his wife have spent their whole lives in the valley and moved to Fernie in 2005 to pursue an outdoor lifestyle. The Fernie local’s number one reason for buying at Montane was location and the proximity to everything. “You’re in the midst of really nice trails and the creek, but you’re also close to downtown. The location is fantastic and the whole community offers amazing views,” said Macgregor.

The next project underway will be the Montane Cottages, which are designed to appeal to singles and small families. Parastone is now accepting reservations for the Cottages, which will begin development in 2016.
