Construction of the newest condominium project in Inglewood, and the community’s only luxury concrete condo building, started on May 16 with a ground-breaking ceremony.
Avli on Atlantic is a $36-million 64-unit project from Greenview Developments that will rise seven storeys and will include $5 million in retail space on the ground floor.
“Starting construction marks a significant milestone for Inglewood as this will be the only luxury concrete condo building in the neighbourhood,” says Brian Kernick, president of Greenview Developments. “I’m glad we have the opportunity to add new homes and create something iconic and different here.”
The project’s name references the original name of 9 Avenue S.E. — Atlantic Avenue — and was designed under the guidance of Jeremy Sturgess of Sturgess Architecture, an award-winning design firm with more than 35 years of architecture and design experience. On its resume is the Jasper National Parks iconic Glacier Skywalk, and it has brought its innovative design ideas to Avli.
“Avli is art. “It is more than a building and it is more than just a home. How you choose to express yourself in life defines who you are,” says Chris Stathonikos, owner of the Avli development site.
Jerilyn Wright, a celebrated Calgary interior designer, whose design firm is located in Inglewood, created the Avli on Atlantic interiors with a contemporary feel. Each home features a combination of high-gloss porcelain finishes, wood grain accents, chrome hardware, soft-close drawers, integrated refrigerators and a variety of customizable storage options. Also included are custom-created cabinetry, gourmet kitchens and spa-like bathrooms.
Avli is 70 per cent sold out, with prices ranging from $350,000 to $1.5 million. The majority of Avli’s floor plans are unique for each home and range in size from 545 to 2,200 square feet. The homes will appeal to a wide variety of buyers, from young professionals to retirees looking to settle down in one of Calgary’s trendy riverfront neighbourhoods.
Building owners and Inglewood residents will have a range of new shops to enjoy with the five retail units Avli will provide on its ground floor. The units are currently for lease and range in size from 1,044 to 5,230 square feet.
