Quanterra Developments has great news. JEM, its thoughtfully designed six-storey modern condo building is now selling and has homes that are ready to move in now. JEM features one and two-bedroom homes, ranging from 570 to 1,228 square feet. Nestled in the heart of a re-energizing West Abbotsford enclave, against a backdrop of forested mountain peaks, JEM is waiting to welcome you home in style.
Inside these sophisticated homes, you’ll discover many thoughtful details including oversized windows, expansive floorplans, ample storage, nine-foot ceilings, and a frameless glass shower in the ensuite. The gourmet kitchens offer spacious islands, shaker cabinetry, and a premium appliance package with a five-burner gas range. The quality of the homes at JEM stands out.
“The idea behind JEM was to create a local landmark with an aesthetic far beyond the normal, including big windows and features that would stand out. Unique, noticeable, something to be proud of. Now that JEM is nearing completion, I am pleased to say we built an attractive, high-quality building.,” says John Jurinak, President of Quanterra Developments.
Designed with award-winning Keystone Architecture, JEM’s contemporary architecture showcases clean, sleek lines with expansive windows, cement-board siding, rich brickwork, black accents and soaring roof lines. JEM combines exterior elegance with a thoughtful and detailed approach to bring modern energy to an established Abbotsford neighbourhood.
“JEM's exterior design gracefully integrates with the surrounding streetscape by using a stepped massing approach. Prominent corner features provide a strong visual identity, while a two-storey brick podium grounds the structure and adds visual weight to the upper-level design elements,” says Steve Bartok, architect at Keystone Architecture. “Through the integration of contemporary materials, colours, and a distinctive entryway, the stepped appearance is enhanced, adding depth and balance to the overall aesthetic.”
In addition to the thoughtful and beautifully designed homes at JEM, there was also an intentionality around the design of the common areas to bring residents together. The expansive south-facing courtyard features a children’s playground and is extensively landscaped to resemble its own private park. There are benches to relax on, a grassy area to hang out and play, or a space to enjoy a coffee with newfound friends.
At JEM, staying fit is convenient. The bright and fully equipped gym offers treadmills, an elliptical, a bike, free weights, a universal weight machine and more. Facing the beautiful courtyard, the expansive windows provide the perfect view while completing a workout; it may even inspire some to extend their fitness to the outdoors.
Surrounded by green space, living at JEM makes it easy to get lost among the trees, lakes and streams. Take a jog around the loop at Mill Lake Park, take the dog for a stroll around Downes Bowl Trail, or let the pups roam loose at the dog park at Clearbrook Park. There are endless opportunities to enjoy outdoor activities in this community.
JEM is well connected to shopping and amenities. Whether it’s major shopping centres or small local shops, Abbotsford has it all. JEM is only minutes to High Street Shopping Centre, Sevenoaks Shopping Centre, local farmers markets, and the Historic Downtown - where you can find boutique shops, restaurants, breweries, and more. This metropolis is also home to the Abbotsford International Airport, a state-of-the-art hospital, the Abbotsford Civic Centre, and the University of the Fraser Valley. And, if you need to get to Vancouver or the interior, access to Highway 1 is a breeze.
