Plenty of space at the Riviera
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.
