Evanston energized

Streetside townhomes and apartments integral to Evanston equation

Evanston Square has always been one of the most unique multi-family developments in this popular northwest neighbourhood, now it becomes even more so, as construction begins for its low-rise apartment style condominiums — the only one of its kind in the community.

The sleek, chic sophisticated multi-family complex from Streetside Development has been growing rapidly since its launch, its townhomes bring a stylish punch to the neighbourhood. Their similarly attractive four-storey apartment condo will soon add to the mix as construction has already started, with possessions expected by the summer of 2013.

“There’s no other multi-family development in Evanston that offers this kind of diversity,” says Streetside’s Karen Payne. “We’re the only one to offer apartment style living in Evanston, and the beauty of this new building is it’s not a high-density apartment — with only 67 units on four floors, with two elevators.”

A knockout street appeal and an altogether fresh approach to multi-family living is what Streetside’s Evanston Square offers. The rolling landscape of this northwest neighbourhood offers plenty of mountain and city views that complements its amenities-rich character, it really is lifestyle squared to the Nth power. Evanston Square is an ambitious 196-unit development, and is the award-winning developer’s first integrated multi-family project.

“The choices that we can offer are simply all encompassing, from a 418-square-foot studio condo to a 1,414-square-foot three-bedroom townhome, Evanston Square will create a unique community within the community,” says Payne.

She points out that the development appeals across generations and its “community-within-a-community” concept works well with families who want to stay together. “We have a couple who bought a townhome and the wife’s dad bought his own unit in the apartment building. He was so happy about being close to his family, yet still having his own home, he had tears in his eyes as he signed the papers,” Payne says.

The timeless qualities of this quaint, idyllic neighbourhood are complimented by the wide porches and craftsman-style woodwork of classic Foursquare architecture of the townhomes, she adds. The James Hardie siding used for all the exteriors  raises not only the aesthetic factor but the durability of homes as well, as this fibre cement siding is more weather and fire resistant.

“With a selection of condos and townhomes, Evanston Square gives you the freedom to choose which style suits your lifestyle without sacrificing the comforts of a true community.”

These qualities are on display in the three show suites of the townhomes. There are a variety of 2 and 3 bedroom townhomes within Evanston Square, ranging from 1,061 square-feet to 1,414 square-feet.

The variety of sizes in townhomes are perfect for young couples looking for a spacious first time home or if you have a growing family they provide great space for the kids. If you are looking for additional space you can develop the basement which enables you to create a home entertainment room or a work out area. These townhomes are extremely affordable as they start at $224,000.

Evanston Square is intended to attract the widest range of buyers possible; it certainly is affordable with apartment condos starting at $130,000s. Apartment condos will also have underground parking and storage. They range from 418-square-foot bachelor suites to 600-square-foot one-bedroom units and 956-square-foot two-bedroom models.

Evanston Square offers an inner sanctuary with a beautifully landscaped courtyard — specifically landscaped to match the prairie surroundings — that will provide residents a park of their own to relax in, the sheer beauty that they never have to maintain any of it.

“Evanston Square offer a  maintenance-free living at its very best,” she adds.  Evanston Square is also just minutes away for shopping, restaurants, banks, medical clinic, and many other retail shops situated in Creekside Centre.
