The ZEN Series

ZEN in Balance townhomes, in Calgary and surrounding areas, were inspired by the ZEN philosophy of all elements in perfect balance. For ZEN, that means these townhomes balance stylish finishes, affordable prices, and respect our environment, all in harmony. Even though ZEN projects are built in many different communities and take on different shapes and sizes, every ZEN townhome is built on the same philosophy and delivers on the same promise. ZEN townhomes are designed to make your life easier to live in the real world, reduce stress, and provide a better quality of life. The ZEN townhome promise always starts in the planning – ZEN townhomes are:

  • Conveniently located near shopping and services, and access to transportation routes
  • The most energy efficient available
  • Built with quality materials
  • Designed with the latest modern styles
  • Affordable

It is Avalon’s relentless pursuit to build homes with modern style at an affordable price, with practical green features that save you money today and the environment tomorrow that makes ZEN townhomes unique. No matter where green technology takes us or how styles morph, ZEN will always be at the forefront, leading the way. Stylish, affordable, and green.
