Avi Urban just seems to go from strength to strength, and the latest offering from this multi-family division of Homes by Avi may be its biggest one yet, as Canoe at Auburn Bay is off to a rousing start.

Canoe is Avi Urban’s first foray into this thriving southeast community and it is creating quite a big splash, and the award-winning builder couldn’t be happier that their vision for multi-family living in Auburn Bay is resonating so well with buyers.

“Avi Urban has worked incredibly hard behind the scenes getting ready for Canoe’s sales launch,” says Charron Ungar, president of Avi Urban.

“In creating the vision for Canoe we looked to the architectural signature of Brookfield’s Auburn Bay community for our inspiration. We wanted to build on that strong foundation while still bringing something new and invigorating design to the suburban multi-family home market. The result is a highly detailed, contemporary interpretation of apartment living in Calgary’s vibrant southeast.”

Canoe was a hit from the opening bell.

According to sales & marketing manager, Chris Pollen, Canoe has been a resounding success since its public launch on July 26. “We are really pleased with the response that Canoe has received. Avi Urban is dedicated to bringing high quality and unique designs to every development in which we build and Canoe really takes this to the next level. Wrap-around balconies and oversized windows blend with cedar shingles and long lasting Hardie siding to make Canoe at Auburn Bay a real community landmark.”

Canoe at Auburn Bay is located at 25 Auburn Meadows Avenue S.E., and this styled collection of 158 apartment condominiums now start from the low $200,000s.

But it isn’t just the attractive price point that is reeling buyers in. “I am confident that our innovative floor plans and high value specification will bring a strong opportunity to the table that today’s savvy and sophisticated buyer will appreciate,” Ungar says. “We are, after all, about bringing an urban aesthetic to all Calgarians dreaming about owning a home and I believe that this time around Canoe has managed to knock it out of the park.”

Canoe at Auburn Bay features studio, one bedroom, and two bedroom apartment condos ranging from 620-1,300 square-feet. Inside, homes offer fresh mix-and-match interior selections like extended height flat panel or shaker cabinetry and full height tile backsplashes gets you one decked out space.

Residents can enjoy an extended living space with huge patio spaces. “The average size of our balconies is 145 square-feet, and they all come with gas outlets to let owners enjoy their private outdoor space even more.”

Outside Canoe, homeowners can connect with their neighbours in a lake country-inspired courtyard, complete with a proposed custom fire pit. Hundreds of trees will surround connective walkways that take homeowners through the development to the future LRT station and convenient retail plaza next door.

The exterior is reflective of Auburn Bay’s resplendent lake cottage lifestyle with durable Hardie plank shakers and siding. The port cochere design of the exterior adds a definite design punch to the whole neighbourhood.

The on-site sales centre is open and it does get busy even on weekdays, interested buyers can check out Avi Urban’s show homes in Sawyer Silverado to get a taste of the kinds of designs that will be available in Canoe.
