Walls of glass re­veal view

The win­dows go from wall to wall and floor to ceil­ing, pro­vid­ing al­most 180-de­gree views of the Bow River val­ley stretch­ing right out to the moun­tain back­drop to the west.

On the other side, there is a panorama of the vi­brant city cen­tre with its tall build­ings. You can even watch the trans­for­ma­tion of The Bow of­fice tower as it soars up­ward just blocks away.

River­front Pointe is the con­do­minium com­plex by Pointe of View in the heart of the city.

The first build­ing is now com­plete, with the new show suite open for view­ing.

It of­fers 983 square feet with spec­tac­u­lar views — and a huge 343-square-foot pa­tio to en­joy those views sum­mer and win­ter.

The spa­cious floor plan is open and invit­ing, with up­scale fea­tures such as mo­saic glass back­splash and quartz coun­ter­tops in the kitchen.

Two bed­rooms are sep­a­rated from each other by the main liv­ing area, where the U-shaped kitchen makes way for the din­ing space, then the den to the right.

The liv­ing room is a box-out space that has win­dows on three sides.

Ev­ery floor plan in the nine-floor build­ing is unique, de­pend­ing on lo­ca­tion and size. Just more than half of the 74 units have al­ready sold.

The sec­ond tower, where just un­der two dozen units are left, con­tains 19 floors with a two­s­torey pent­house level — and more than dou­ble the num­ber of units al­to­gether.

It’s now un­der constructi­on just to the south of the ex­ist­ing tower.

River­front Pointe has units start­ing at just $258,800 plus GST — that’s for a one-bed­room suite at 660 square feet. Twobed­room homes are priced from $368,800 plus GST.

The com­plex will even­tu­ally have an out­door court­yard on the ground floor with a meet­ing room in­side for res­i­dents’ use.

The tower now un­der constructi­on will have a large open deck on the fourth floor, with a bar­be­cue area and ac­cess to an ex­er­cise room.

Res­i­dents of both build­ings will have use of that com­mon space.

Two other tow­ers are pro­posed for the area — one 24 storeys and the other 28 storeys, as well as six town­homes (al­though those plans have not yet been fi­nal­ized.)

A heated, se­cure, un­der­ground parkade is in­cluded.

The kitchen in­cludes a mo­saic tile back­splash and quartz coun­ter­tops. Above, views of the Bow River can be seen through walls of glass.

The bed­rooms are a good size.
