Market Entrance of Luxury Vehicle Dealerships Demonstrates Calgary's Economic Growth and Ability to Attract High-End Brands to the Local Area

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Sept. 30, 2014) - Friday evening, September 26, 2014, Meadows Mile hosted a partner appreciation event for the high-end luxury dealerships coming to Calgary's Meadows Mile. For the first time in Canada, these legendary brands including Ferrari, Lamborghini, Lotus, Maserati, Porsche, and Rolls Royce will come together within walking distance of one another.

"This is an important project for Calgary, as it showcases our city as a credible location to sell very high end luxury vehicles. To have these brands clustered within walking distance of each other is entirely unique and allows for synergies between the brands", says Jaydean Boldt, Director of Development and Planning for Meadows Mile.

Developer and Owner, Kenneth Mariash, Sr., alongside wife and Interior Architect Patricia Mariash, is regarded as one of the most visionary developers in North America, and has transformed millions of square feet into profitable commercial and residential ventures. As true supporters of the community, Patricia and Kenneth Mariash Sr., presented a $15,000 cheque to The Children's Wish Foundation of Canada, Alberta & N.W.T Chapter.

"To us, investment doesn't just mean a contribution to the business architecture and economic foundations of a city. It must also demonstrate a social responsibility to the people of that city - and most importantly, the children and youth," said Patricia Mariash.

Focus Equities, the master developer of Deerfoot Meadows, has developed a full range of pad sale and leasing options on the final undeveloped area of their highly successful Deerfoot Meadows shopping centre project. Given the high visibility and proximity to major shopping areas, Meadows Mile is ideally situated for a range of commercial and retail uses including luxury vehicle dealerships, restaurants, gas stations, automotive services, personal services, retail stores, office and hotel.

The Meadows Mile concept was developed over two years ago and aims for construction to be completed by Spring 2016. Currently, only two remaining lots are still available in the 27-acre lot.
