Information for Residents

Sunset Ridge Community Resources

Homeowners Association (HOA)

Melcor is committed to building communities where residents can live, work, shop and play. To create complete communities filled with amenities, we often build amenities that are above the standard which municipalities are prepared to maintain. When we do, we establish a Homeowners Association to maintain the amenities for the long-term enjoyment of residents. Each household, including multifamily units, pays an annual fee (currently $125 per year). These fees maintain the “extras” in the community, including the freshwater pond with fountains, gazebos and picnic areas. For more information, visit the HOA website.

Sunset Ridge Access Gets Funded!

As Sunset Ridge grows, we've seen increased traffic volume on Sunset Boulevard. Melcor has worked with the Town of Cochrane, Rocky View County and Alberta Transportation since 2011 on a plan for a second access into the community to help alleviate traffic congestion. We are very excited that the new interchange received provincial funding in the fall 2019 budget and hope for a speedy build for this much needed access point.

Architectural Styles

Whether you’re searching for a cozy townhome, or a spacious home with a walkout basement, Sunset Ridge offers it all in Cochrane. Your stylish new home reflects Craftsman, Prairie or Arts & Crafts architecture that is signature to Sunset Ridge. Deep, rich natural colour palettes with comprehensive trim packages, varied roof pitches, and decorative craftsman elements like gables, brackets, blocks, and trusses complement the scenery. Diverse finishes include cedar shakes, board & batten, and Hardie board siding to add interest to the streetscape.

Large porches and usable covered landings encourage neighbourliness and interaction with the street. Articulated garage doors complement the character of homes in Sunset Ridge, reducing the overall impact on the façade, while creating a pleasant, memorable and welcoming streetscape to come home to. Speak to our builders today to discover how your new home in Sunset Ridge can be carefully crafted to reflect your personal style.
