Solo District Soars High in North Burnaby

By Oct 22, 2014

Brentwood is a sought-after neighbourhood with great outdoor cafes and fabulous shopping, parks and trails, recreational amenities, and a historic business district, all within walking distance. That’s where you will find North Burnaby’s most exciting new development, SOLO District.

Jim Bosa’s Appia Developments has unveiled the second of four SOLO District towers to be built on the 6.65-acre site in Burnaby’s most liveable urban community, and will feature Burnaby’s tallest residential tower ALTUS. Equivalent to a 55-storey high rise, ALTUS will feature a collection of 280 beautifully appointed one-, two- and three-bedroom homes, ranging from 534 to up to 1,709 square feet for the three-plus-bedroom penthouses (homes start on the 15th floor).

“ALTUS is the second of what will be four residential towers and it is selling very well,” says Lisa Murrell, sales and marketing manager for Appia Developments.

Jim Bosa’s Appia Developments – part of the BOSA family legacy – continues its long standing  tradition to build well-designed, quality homes while ensuring home owners receive exceptional service each and every time.

The sweeping panoramic views are another of SOLO District’s strong selling points. To the west is the city of Vancouver and Vancouver Island, to the north, the glistening North Shore Mountains and the majestic Lions, to the south, Burnaby’s Central Park, and to the east, Golden Ears Mountains and Mount Baker.

The contemporary sleek glass building, with its stunning double-height lobby with concierge service and three high-speed elevators, caters to the changing demographics of North Burnaby.

People are also taken by the exquisite interiors. Suites are outfitted with Italian Armony Cucine cabinetry with soft-close doors, engineered laminate wood flooring, custom roller blinds and nine foot ceilings. Homes come with state-of-the-art Energy Star sustainable features, such as a geothermal heat exchange system.

“It will have the distinction of being Burnaby’s second fully air conditioned residential building, next to SOLO District’s STRATUS,” adds Murrell.

That’s not all. The project also includes more than 100,000 square feet of retail space, with anchor Whole Foods Market, the world’s largest retailer of natural and organic foods for healthy living, along a pedestrian friendly street.

In addition, owners will have access to Club 55, sitting over 550 feet into the air, crowning Altus.  The over 5000 square foot private amenity space features a fully landscaped rooftop terrace with a barbecue area complete with wet bar and outdoor seating as well as a media centre, full kitchen and much more. For fitness buffs, there’s a well appointed health studio with a unique outdoor “all-court” situated on the 3rd floor of the tower.  This shared space is available to Altus residents as well as the office tenants..

Owners will also be close to the urban hub, just minutes away from shopping, services, restaurants, grocery, entertainment as well as schools such as Simon Fraser University and BCIT. Across the street, they can access the Brentwood Station of the Millennium Line, connecting to downtown Vancouver in only 20 minutes.

When you look at the entry price-point level starting at $298,900 and the quality finishing that has been put into the spacious and luxurious homes, this is excellent value. Here is your opportunity to buy in Burnaby’s most exciting neighbourhood.
