Plenty of space at the Riviera

Calgary Herald - Calgary Herald New Condos - - New Condos - CLAIRE YOUNG

DaVinci Homes is launch­ing the sales cen­tre for its Riviera on the Bow con­do­minium project to­day in Park­dale.

Us­ing the lower level of a nearby three-storey show home as the sales cen­tre gives peo­ple a chance to see what the un­in­ter­rupted view of the river will be like from all but the pent­house level in the new project.

Riviera on the Bow will have 31 units in 19 dif­fer­ent floor plans.

“You have quite a few op­tions,” says Ijmal Haider of DaVinci Homes Ltd.

“Each one has a den as well. It’s not a sec­ondary bed­room, but it is a flex space that you can turn into an of­fice with a hide­away bed.”

The one-bed­room-plus­den units start at about 700 square feet. The av­er­age unit size in the build­ing will range from 1,000 to 1,180 square feet, with the largest units be­ing the pent­houses.

“We’re find­ing that in projects out­side of the core, peo­ple are look­ing for a bit more space with their con­dos,” says Haider. “They are re­ally fo­cus­ing on hav­ing space, not just about liv­ing the down­town life.”

Two pent­houses share the fourth floor, with one unit of­fer­ing 1,800 square feet and the other 1,900 square feet.

“They have rooftop pa­tios that stretch the whole width of the build­ing,” says Haider.

Each unit comes with a ti­tled un­der­ground park­ing stall and stor­age unit. They each have a bal­cony with a gas hookup for bar­be­cues.

The con­dos will feel airy given the 8.5-foot ceil­ings on the first three lev­els, with the pent­house ceil­ings stretch­ing to nine feet. Kitchens fea­ture full­sized ap­pli­ances, rather than smaller Euro­peanstyle ap­pli­ances.

“Any­thing you’re used to in a house, we want to pro- vide to you,” says Haider.

The show home con­tains many of the fin­ishes of­fered in the Riviera build­ing.

Cab­i­nets in the show home are Shaker style, while the con­dos will of­fer a choice be­tween Shaker style and slab cab­i­nets.

Haider ex­pects young pro­fes­sion­als and down­siz­ing cou­ples will be in­ter­ested in the lo­ca­tion — which is near to down­town, Foothills Med­i­cal Cen­tre and the Univer­sity of Cal­gary. It’s also right on the Bow River and path­way sys­tem.

Units are priced be­tween $356,900 and $1. 2 mil­lion. Condo fees will be in the range of 37 to 40 cents per square foot.

The sales cen­tre and show home are lo­cated at 2838 Park­dale Blvd. N.W. Hours are Mon­days to Thurs­days from 2 to 8 p.m., and week­ends from noon to 5 p.m.
