GLAS, the stunning new inner-city development by Avalon Master Builder, stirs the senses and awaken the soul to a new era of modern condominium living, where life at home is equally exciting as the life surrounding you in vibrant Marda Loop.

GLAS stands apart from the crowd. The two modern condominium blocks comprising GLAS are solidly constructed using insulated concrete forms (ICF), concrete and steel, clad with durable acrylic stucco for added style and security. Concrete walls and floors ensure heightened sound-proofing that enhance neighbourly relations. It’s also pretty exclusive with only 21 townhomes.

The architecturally designed modern exterior of GLAS features large expanses of widows framed in striking tangerine acrylic stucco. This landmark exterior is just the beginning; the best part waits for you inside. Elegant interior finishes and well-designed spaces give way to an abundance of outdoor patios, roof top decks and a lush inner courtyard for all to enjoy. 

Inside and out, GLAS can be a peaceful oasis or a wonderful place to entertain and throw a party. Either way, your friends and family will want to come over, possibly all the time, and your GLAS home will make them green with envy. 

Boasting in floor heating, high performance Energy Star rated appliances, low-e windows, a heat recovery ventilator to help keep your indoors healthy, low VOC paint, and much more, GLAS means you are living green too.

Like a great big candy bowl, you’ll want to reach in and find out what else there is to discover, and GLAS does not disappoint. 

Explore the new one bedroom GLAS show home located at 102, 1808 27th Avenue S.W. and see if you can see yourself in GLAS. Plenty already have.

“We’ve had great success since the January 9th opening weekend, with 400 people through and a steady flow ever since,” explains Dean Clark, Design and Selections Manager at Avalon. “So far we have five sales and three holds; there was clearly some pent-up demand for GLAS.”

The open concept, modern and urbane show home makes it perfectly clear: brilliant is the hallmark of GLAS. Floor to ceiling windows allow an abundance of light to reverberate from the engineered hardwood floors and spiral from the modern and dramatic island lighting and sleek quartz counters. Stainless steel appliances, maple flat panel 42-inch cabinets, and a clever open counter area for seating in the one bedroom, make eating at home a gourmet experience each day. 

In a sweet twist, the one-bedroom unit winds down to a lower lever to find the spacious bedroom area. At the stair landing is a large three-piece bathroom with quartz counters and under mount sink. Located in the hall is a clever nook for storing books and other treasures, and behind closed doors is the conveniently located stackable Whirlpool Duet washer and dryer and storage area.

The bedroom itself features a large closet, and the icing on the shiny GLAS cake, huge floor to ceiling sliding doors leading to a private 93-square-foot outdoor patio. Coffee and pastries in the morning and have never seemed so necessary. 

Nine-foot ceilings, throughout this and every home, create a sense of space in the immaculately designed 69-square-foot home. But if you desire a little more room, GLAS offers two bedroom, three-level homes from 1,282 to 1,433 square-feet featuring main level patios and scrumptious private roof top patios. 

Three bedroom, three-level homes are also available from 1,560 to 1,789 square-feet, with the same spacious patios and an exclusive spa bathroom with freestanding circular tub and frameless glass shower.

No matter your trim level, the GLAS town homes are decked-out to thrill and excite. Porcelain tiles in bathrooms and on the full height kitchen backsplash, spa-like bathrooms, wall ovens… there is just so much.

But don’t stay home, as tempting as it may be, because the lifestyle of GLAS is as much a part of the home as the modern finishes. Take your bike out for a spin to explore Marda Loop and Garrison Woods with their restaurants, cafes, pubs and shops, or walk the dog at nearby River Park off leash area, or continue on to Sandy Beach and the endless Calgary river pathways.

For more boutique shopping and dining, explore nearby 17th Avenue and 14th street. The choices are endless, and the life you dream of is clear as GLAS. When your day is done, put your bike in the bike storage area, park your car in your underground parking space, and alight to the rooftop to gaze at the stars and admire sweeping views of downtown.

“What’s not perfect about it? It’s in close proximity to everything you need,” says Clark.

GLAS is a lifestyle that you deserve, a life you want. Possessions will begin in spring of 2016, so come soon and see yourself in GLAS. CL
