Located at 1305 Burrard, for decades the site of Commercial Electronics, Modern will be a slender, elegant highrise with homes designed to meet the demands of a sophisticated, urban-savvy buyer.
"Our focus is to create livable, well-appointed homes that are still affordable," says Nic Jensen, sales and marketing manager, adding prices are anticipated to start in the mid $300,000s for a one-bedroom including parking. Features and finishings, he says, will be exceptional: stainless steel Bosch appliance package, roller blinds throughout, polished stone countertops, and engineered hardwood flooring throughout the main living areas.
"And every home will be air conditioned, a feature that's very rare to find." Understanding that outdoor space is a treasured part of our West Coast lifestyle, Modern will also provide a spacious, residents only rooftop deck on the 10th floor. "You'll be able to see English Bay and enjoy the dazzling sunsets," Nic says. "Plus there's going to be urban garden plots here, so if you like to grow flowers and veggies, you can do it right at home."
Modern will offer 118 homes including five two-storey penthouse suites featuring 16-foot ceilings, private rooftop decks, and dazzling views. Sales are expected to begin this May 2012 in the onsite presentation centre at 1305 Burrard St. in Vancouver.
