Cornerstone’s multifamily projects will range in height from four to six storeys. There is also a planned Major Activity Centre (MAC) at the intersection of Country Hills Boulevard and 60th Street that may support future construction of up to eight storeys.

Anthem, the developer, does not plant trees on private property. However, Cornerstone is part of the Complete Streets initiative, where trees are planted in the road right of way along each street.
The road right of way (or boulevard) adjacent to your property is land that is actually owned by the City, and maintained by you. The City uses this land for snow stock piling, road maintenance or other items as required.
