If they priced like that, they would price themselves out of the Regina market. They aren't going for a super luxury type development here I don't think. From the original floorplans (they are bound to have changed with the change in the external design), the kitchens were normal sized IMO... laundry, however, was not in the floorplan, so you are probably right on that part.
The Gardens on Rose development is aiming to catch the executive suite market. Capital Pointe is probably aiming for some middle class along with the upper class buyers; at least from the sounds of the ad ($199,000 to over $1 million).
