When Jim Bussey, founder of award-winning FormWerks Architectural, was tasked with designing the exteriors of Avenue33 in the coveted Vancouver Westside, staying true to the neighbourhood’s aesthetics was important.
“This neighbourhood has a Craftsman-style flavour that we all love. Keeping the elegance of the style, while giving it an elevated elegance, sophistication and contemporary West coast feel, was the goal,” says Bussey. “You can see that Craftsman style in the materials and colours we used, including the shingles and the wood accents.”
Welcome to Vertex Developments’ Avenue33. While boasting an ideal location in Vancouver’s prestigious Westside, Avenue33 is surrounded by some of the city’s iconic parks and playgrounds and is Vertex’s second project for this iconic neighbourhood.
Avenue33 consists of four three-storey Craftsman-inspired, West coast forward buildings, showcasing a luxury collection of 49, three-bedroom townhomes and city homes, and one and two-bedroom garden homes in the perimeter buildings along West 33rd Ave. Laurel and Willow St.
“We are of the first townhome projects to be released on an East/West corridor, not North/South like the newer townhomes on Cambie and Oak Street. The natural light is excellent and it makes for a quitter more family-friendly location,” says Craig Anderson, marketing and sales director at Magnum Projects. “This is the ideal location for those who want to leave Yaletown and Olympic Village to start their families.”
Ranging from 465 to 1,249 square feet, Avenue33 offers the perfect blend of modern luxury and urban conveniences. The attention to detail in the homes is second to none.
“Avenue33 is unique in that it offers buyers three different products and classes of homes – Garden homes, City Homes and Townhomes,” says Anderson. “Bordered by great parks such as the Queen Elizabeth Park, the top schools and next to Vancouver’s health care hub, Avenue 33 is an exceptional place to be.”
Conceived by AREA3 Interior Design, these sophisticated residences offer a seamless blend of classic and contemporary architecture. Each home showcases wide plank engineered hardwood floors, oversized ceilings, expansive windows that flood the interior in natural sunlight, air conditioning, NUHEAT flooring, and generous rooftop decks or patios - perfect for entertaining family and friends.
The kitchens alone will captivate you. Collaborating with David Robertson, renowned chef and owner of Dirty Apron, each features a full-size Miele appliance package, custom-designed European-inspired cabinetry, multi-purpose island, magic corners for maximum storage, quartz countertops with large format quartz backsplash and a full-pantry (select homes).
Bathrooms were created to indulge you after a long day, with deep soaker tubs, custom-designed European-inspired cabinetry, solid quartz countertops, porcelain tile flooring and mirrored medicine cabinet.
Avenue33’s piece de resistance just might be the 1,800 square foot courtyard centrally located with lounge seating – the perfect setting to meet neighbours and friends while taking in the beautifully landscaped grounds or to watch your children at the play area.
“The courtyard was designed to be a place where neighbours can connect in a private setting,” says Bussey.
Ideally positioned near one of the city’s most historic boulevards, Cambie Village has grown up to become a bustling and sought-after neighbourhood. It offers fantastic restaurants, trendy shops and the historic, beautifully renovated one-screen cinema, the Park Theatre. It is also home to Women’s and Children’s Hospital. In the summer, residents and baseball fans head to Nat Bailey Stadium to catch the Vancouver Canadians in action, or to the Douglas Park Community Centre for a friendly game of tennis and a great workout.
Prices for these luxury residences start from $589k to $1.84 million. The Avenue33 Sales Centre, located at 5890 Cambie St., Vancouver, is open daily from noon to 5 p.m. (closed Fridays).
