The Casel is beginning to look like it’s fit for royalty — and in­deed, those who buy in the lat­est con­do­minium de­vel­op­ment to rise on the bor­der of the close-in neigh­bour­hoods of Sha­ganappi and Kil­lar­ney in the south­west, will feel like kings and queens.

Cre­ated by the Nik­las Group, Casel is one of the few clo­sein highrise con­dos in to­day’s econ­omy that is un­der constructi­on.

But more than that, it sits on a hill at the cor­ner of 24th Street and 17th Av­enue S.W., where the whole city sky­line stretches out be­low. Views from var­i­ous suites will be un­ob­structed.

The de­vel­op­ment of­fers 56 units with a com­mer­cial site at the bot­tom and se­cured un­der- ground park­ing. It is now built to the sec­ond level of the parkade and first oc­cu­pan­cies are ex­pected by late sum­mer of next year. With the com­mer­cial space, about 58 per cent of the project has sold and the de­vel­oper is now of­fer­ing an ag­gres­sive price pol­icy for a se­lect few units.

Two, two-bed­room units are priced at $379,000 and $384,900 — and Nik­las Group will match the down pay­ment to a max­i­mum of five per cent.

In ad­di­tion, the de­vel­oper is able to ob­tain fi­nanc­ing at spe­cial rates from 2.99 per cent.

A few one-bed­room units are avail­able as well — with one unit left at $299,000. Some with one bed­room and a den start in the low $300,000s. Oth­er­wise, two-bed­room plans range from the low $400,000s to the low $500,000s.

The homes have fea­tures that in­clude con­tem­po­rary or more tran­si­tional fin­ishes, with spec­i­fi­ca­tions such as Co­rian coun­ter­tops in kitchens that can be up­graded to Quartz, a tiled back­splash, and hard­wood in the kitchen and en­try that can be up­graded to in­clude the main liv­ing ar­eas.

The de­vel­oper has opened a sales cen­tre at 14th Street and 15th Av­enue S.W. that has typ­i­cal fin­ishes and rooms that du­pli­cate the stan­dards used in Casel.

An­other project by Nik­las Group is in the Marda Loop area and a show home is on site. It, too, has in­for­ma­tion about Casel.

The sec­ond lo­ca­tion is a group of 16 town­houses which is al­ready built with both two-and three-bed­room mod­els. Five are left with prices rang­ing from
