Apart­ments in the planned fourth and final build­ing of the Red Haus condo de­vel­op­ment in the north­west com­mu­nity of Royal Oak go on sale to­day.

Af­ter more than 500 peo­ple moved into the first three build­ings, known known for their dis­tinc­tive red roofs suites in the final build­ing — a 136-unit project called Van­den­burg — are now on the mar­ket.

The project is be­ing de­vel­oped by Street­side De­vel­op­ment Corp.

“It’s been a great place for peo­ple to call home,” says Lisa Feist, op­er­a­tions man­ager for Street­side De­velop- ment Corp.

Like the other Red Haus build­ings, Van­den­burg will be a four-storey, wood-frame struc­ture with a mix of one- and two-be­d­room units.

The suites are avail­able in 15 floor plans rang­ing from 573 to 1,067 square feet.

“We’ve main­tained an open con­cept,” says Feist of the floor plans, adding that the build­ing’s “func­tional” kitchens are an ap­peal­ing unit fea­ture.

Units at Van­den­burg start at $170,000.

Most Red Haus buy­ers tend to be first­time home­own­ers, says Feist.

“They’re a younger gen­er­a­tion just start­ing out,” she says. Feist has also seen buy­ers who are down­siz­ing, or as “right­siz­ing.”

“It’s a pretty di­verse crowd,” she says.

In ad­di­tion to the apart­ments, other ap­peal­ing as­pects of Red Haus in­clude it be­ing within walk­ing dis­tance of a shop­ping cen­tre and the de­vel­op­ment’s club house, which fea­ture pool ta­bles, an ex­er­cise fa­cil­ity and a li­brary.

“It’s a com­mu­nity within a com­mu­nity,” says Feist.

A public launch of sales starts to­day at noon.

The sales cen­tre is at 126 30 Royal Oak Plaza, N.W. It is open from 1 to 7 p.m. Mon­days through Thurs­days, and noon to 5 p.m. Fri­days to Sun­days.
