Calgary Sun - Homes - - Homes - Myke Thomas CALGARYSUN

Lead­ing-edge tech­nolo­gies and smart home liv­ing put the new Nest high-rise condo project on the map in the in­nercity Cal­gary com­mu­nity of Mis­sion.

The 15- storey condo tower will house 82 homes in six unique floor­plans, aim­ing to pro­vide an ur­ban liv­ing ex­pe­ri­ence fo­cused on greener, smarter liv­ing, set­ting Nest apart from other condo de­vel­op­ments, says de­vel­oper and long-time Cal­gar­ian Dan Bow­man.

“Smart Liv­ing is mak­ing the con­scious choice to live a sus­tain­able life in­clud­ing how we move, play and live, now and into the fu­ture,” says Bow­man, who is part­nered with BMP Con­struc­tion, Ca­sola Koppe Ar­chi­tects and Aly Velji De­signs in the project.

The two main tenets for ten­ants of Nest are Smart Eq­uity and Smart De­sign.

Smart eq­uity fo­cuses on af­ford­abil­ity, long-term value and a trans­par­ent pur­chase pro- cess, pro­vid­ing first-time home buy­ers an op­por­tu­nity to build eq­uity by buy­ing in­stead of rent­ing. Nest res­i­dents will choose from a pack­age of ex­clu­sive perks from part­ners such as Rep­sol Sports Cen­tre, Uber, Car2Go and The Bike Shop.

Smart De­sign fo­cuses on small but mighty, max­i­miz­ing util­ity, en­ergy ef­fi­ciency, style and com­fort, with high-qual­ity, con­crete ma­te­rial en­sur­ing each unit is sound­proof and fire­proof, with com­mon ar­eas fea­tur­ing a new look and feel, says Aly Velji.

“We wanted the com­mon spa­ces to feel less like a lobby space and more of a meet­ing hub,” says Velji. “An area where peo­ple can come and work or just hang out.

“We are propos­ing some­thing quite edgy and unique, with the use of con­crete, black me­tal and light wood tones and liv­ing green walls.”

With its lo­ca­tion in Mis­sion, Nest is within walk­ing dis­tance of key ameni­ties such as the El­bow River path­ways, the Rep­sol Cen­tre, pub­lic tran­sit, 4th Street and 17th Av­enue. With a walk score of 91, a tran­sit score of 79, and a bike score of 100, Nest is walk­a­ble/bike­able Cal­gary at its finest, says Bow­man.

“Nest’s prime lo­ca­tion in Cal­gary also en­sures that res­i­dents will be treated to for­ever un­ob­structed views of the city sky­line, river and the Rocky Moun­tains,” he says.

Smart homes tech­nol­ogy in­cludes state-of-the-art In­ter­net con­nec­tiv­ity, key­less en­try, pro­gram­mable light­ing and ther­mostats.

The grand open­ing and a Nest and Neigh­bours Block Party will be held on Oct. 13, with free food, en­ter­tain­ment and prizes at the sales cen­tre, lo­cated at 124 17 Ave. S.E.
