Redefining North Burnaby at SOLO District

Appia Developments' SOLO District is rapidly becoming an iconic part of the Burnaby landscape.

Appia Development has deep roots in North Burnaby, and this continues with SOLO District, which will soon become an iconic part of the skyline. SOLO District, which stands for South Of Lougheed, continues to draw potential buyers into the presentation centre every day to check out the condominium homes, amazing amenities and community feel.

“People are embracing the community concept,” says Lisa Murrell, sales and marketing manager for Appia. “Everything about SOLO District is about quality, from the retailers to the suites themselves.”

The latest phase at SOLO District is Altus, which will become the tallest building in Burnaby at the equivalent of 55 storeys, with office space on the first 14 floors and homes from 200 feet up so every homeowner can enjoy amazing views.

The homes range from approximately 534 to 1,709 square feet in a variety of one-, two- and three-bedroom floorplans. The three-bedroom homes are a new plan that Appia is proud to be able to offer buyers at Altus.

Inside, you’ll find luxurious finishes such as nine-foot ceilings, laminate wood flooring in the living areas and the choice of two designer colour schemes, Grigio and Noce.

The kitchens feature imported Italian Armony Cucine cabinetry, polished quartz countertops and a quartz slab backsplash, complemented by stainless-steel appliances and under-cabinet task lighting.

The relaxing bathrooms hold their own Italian Armony Cucine cabinetry and quartz countertops, as well as a luxurious soaker tub and large porcelain floor tiles and wall tile for the tub surround and shower wall. Select ensuites feature an enclosed glass shower.

One of the most exciting parts of Altus is Club 55 on its top floor, with a barbecue area, full kitchen, media area and billiards, poker and ping-pong tables and a large outdoor deck space. The office tower will hold a fully equipped gym, and a multi-sport court on the third floor, while the 15th floor will include a roof terrace with outdoor seating, a barbecue area and a wet bar.

SOLO District itself is one of the most exciting properties in the Lower Mainland real estate market. It will eventually be comprised of four residential towers and over 1,400 homes. Construction is currently ongoing for the first and second phases, Stratus and Altus, with future phases Cirrus and Aerius to follow. The community will also include Burnaby’s first Whole Foods, commercial opportunities, office space and tons of green space.

“There are several other exciting anchor tenants to be announced,” says Murrell. “This is a very, very cool community.”

SOLO District is perfectly situated for transit, shopping, education and leisure activities. The Brentwood Skytrain station is just steps away, along with Brentwood Town Centre. Golf courses, parks and fitness facilities are also nearby.

“People will be hard-pressed to find a more complete community of this calibre,” says Murrell.

SOLO District and Appia is currently offering a fantastic promotion they are calling The Perfect Home Ownership Plan. The next 75 qualified buyers will get savings of up to 60 per cent on mortgage payments for a limited time, discounts on transit passes for those who commute farther than three kilometres from home on a regular basis and no payments for up to 180 days after the purchase of one of the select homes at SOLO District. This promotion is being offered to buyers who are Burnaby residents, plan to live or have a family member live at SOLO District or will be attending a post-secondary institution in Burnaby such as Simon Fraser University or the British Columbia Institute of Technology.

Homes at SOLO District start at $293,900. For more information, visit www.solodistrict.com, call 604-298-8800 or visit the presentation centre at 2131 Willingdon Avenue, open daily except Friday between noon and 5 p.m.
