Burnaby Mountain’s UniverCity neighbourhood is one of the most desirable places to live in the city. Atop this green hillside, the sweeping views of water, mountain and cityscapes are stunning. This is where award-winning Mosaic Homes introduced Hamilton –a beautifully designed 12-storey concrete-apartment building in this university enclave.
“Mosaic has been involved in UniverCity for more than 13 years and this is our third community here,” says Geoff Duyker, senior vice president marketing at Mosaic. “Our first two projects, Nest and Fraser, sold out quickly.”
With its timeless white-brick and black accents architecture, Hamilton features 115 one, two and three-bedroom concrete homes, ranging from 570 to 1,150 square feet of thoughtfully designed spaces.
Inspired by classic design with a contemporary twist, each open concept home bathes in natural light from the large windows, and boast wide plank wood-laminate flooring throughout the living area, an elegant white-on-taupe or white-on-white palette, spa-inspired bathrooms with deep soaker tubs, and plenty of storage.
Gourmet kitchens showcase designer finishes such as a Whirlpool stainless steel appliance package with integrated dishwasher, Quartz stone countertops paired with an undermount stainless steel sink, matte black pull-down spray faucet and matte white or taupe, modern flat-panel upper cabinets sitting above lower shaker cabinetry.
Not only with students and faculty, but for families, couples/singles and downsizers who love this sought-after community. Ideally positioned on the hill on Univercity Crescent, Hamilton residents will have sweeping view of Burrard Inlet and Mount Baker, while being close to day-to-day shopping, Highlands Elementary School and the Childcare Centre.
With a number of new additions, including schools, daycares, restaurants, grocery stores, hiking/walking trails and more, everything at UniverCity, Hamilton puts you in the centre of everything. With all it has to offer, UniverCity attracts everyone; from students, young families to empty nesters and investors.
“I think Hamilton is going to be a jewel at SFU,” says Duyker. “It’s a boutique building, in a great setting, with prices between 20 to 40 per cent less than other neighbourhoods in Burnaby.”
It is easy to see why people flock to this walkable, eco-friendly university community - one that has won several awards for minimizing its footprint on the environment, yet provides everything that suburbanites and residents need.
There is no better time to buy into this vibrant, sought-after community than now, as the amount of construction in UniverCity is capped, thereby will be very few projects after Hamilton.
“Owning a home here is very favourable as rentals will become increasingly in demand in this university setting where the numbers of new homes to be built is limited,” says Duyker.
Synonymous with excellence in building, the two-decade+ Mosaic has built more than 6,000 homes throughout the Lower Mainland, for the way people live, work and play. Locally owned and operated, Mosaic has earned a reputation amongst its home owners for designing functional and beautiful homes.
