A Trusted and Talented Team

Since leading the effort to acquire Silverhorn, Mark Kwasnicki has been overseeing all development activities. He has created some of the most desired and distinguished properties in Bearspaw, Springbank, Elbow Valley, and Calgary Inner City areas. Mark sought out an architectural and urban planning partner that considered the natural environment in all aspects of the design process and also connected the community with surrounding amenities.

IBI Group, a global architecture, planning, engineering and technology firm, shares Mark’s dedication to the project and is a key member of the team. IBI Group is one of the 10 largest architectural practices in the world, and number 1 in Canada according to the BD World Architecture’s annual survey. As well as being respected in the industry for their specialized approach, IBI Group has earned numerous international awards and continues to advance developments world wide. Mark and IBI Group have developed a plan that is unique and a first of its kind for the area.

Silverhorn is the first community in County of Rocky View to have its own land use zoning, due to environmental stewardship. Each lot ranges from 1 to 2.5 acres with the land outside of the building envelope remaining natural and untouched. Homes are permitted to be taller, which allows more allowances for architectural design, such as steeped pitched roofs. The combined talent of the team has created one of the best land development plans for environmental conservation in Alberta. The team is committed to high quality service and looks forward to working with Silverhorn residents.
