Aviara is Changing North Burnaby’s Skyline

By May 19, 2015

A 32-storey curved glass and concrete highrise is redefining the cityscape in North Burnaby’s Brentwood neighbourhood. Welcome to Aviara. Designed in an elongated shape that offers its most compelling feature – sweeping 360-degree views stretching from the Gulf Islands to the North Shore Mountains and Mount Baker – one walks into a lobby reminiscent of a five-star hotel.

“The reason this tower is this interesting shape isn’t just because we wanted to create something beautiful,” says Manuela Mirecki, senior vice-president of marketing for Ledingham McAllister, adding Aviara is move-in ready. “It’s also for the benefit of people who will live here, as well as our neighbours. I know the word iconic is overused but Aviara will arguably set a new bar for high rises in North Burnaby.”

Brought to you by the award-winning developer Ledingham McAllister, Aviara is a collection of 239 one-bedroom-plus-den, two-bedroom and two-bedroom-plus-den designer condominiums ranging from 634 to 942 square feet.

Retirees Alexander and Stephanie Blesch were sold as soon as they visited Aviara.

Like many active seniors, they decided to downsize to enjoy their retirement years without worrying about mowing lawns or looking after their large family home.

“We love everything about it, from the shape of the tower to the large patio, to the two walls of windows in the living room and its location in North Burnaby,” says 77-year-old Alexander. “We purchased a two-bedroom-and-den corner suite with incredible views.”

As grandparents, it was also important for them to stay in the neighbourhood.

“We have two dogs so we can walk right outside out door and the park is right there,” adds Alexander, saying his wife loves the kitchen and soaker tub in the master ensuite.

Homeowners and visitors alike are greeted by the prominent, world-class water wall drawing your eye to the "floating walkway" welcoming you to the lobby.

Every resident will have access to a number of amenities, including a fitness centre, dining lounge with fully equipped kitchen, fireplace and games table, spacious social lounge, meeting spaces and a private guest suite for out of town visitors. With reflecting ponds and beautifully manicured landscaping, the garden terrace is perfect for outdoor entertaining.

“Each homeowner will also receive a one year casual membership with Modo Car Co-op,” says Mirecki. “Aviara is in the heart of the vibrant Brentwood neighbourhood close to all sorts of amenities. There’s a wonderful diverse melting pot of young and old, retirees, young families, empty nesters and others who are attracted to the lifestyle Aviara can present.”

In addition, Aviara is walking distance from Gilmore SkyTrain, shops, restaurants and Brentwood Town Centre. 

With more than 110 years of building landmark developments and 5,000 homes across British Columbia, you can rest assured you are buying from a builder renowned for outstanding quality, integrity and solid performance.

On Saturday, May 30, Aviara will be opening the doors to its brand new in-building presentation centre and three new designer model homes. Until that time, the presentation centre, located at 1710 Gilmore Avenue, Burnaby, will be open daily from noon to 6pm (except Fridays).
