The up and coming University District located in northwest Calgary is home to another new condominium development, Avi Urban’s August at University District.

As the multi-family arm of Homes by Avi, Avi Urban has been dedicated to delivering innovative designs, high quality finishes and functional spaces since 2000.

The August show suite is the newest addition to the University District Discovery Centre, which includes a unique product offering from two other builders. This truly distinctive experience gives prospective buyers access to three multi-family builders, all offering different product, under one roof. It is apparent that each of the area sales managers, associates, and University District ambassadors are passionate about University District and understand the value of the community — and August is no exception.

Between the striking white and teal colours, custom metallic floorplates and attention to detail, the sales centre sets a high precedent for the upcoming development. Upon completion, August at University District will be a six-storey building — with five residential floors sitting above main floor retail. Already sold out of one floorplan, the residential floors still have 13 configurations to choose from including one-, two- and three-bedroom homes — from 544 to 1,088-square-foot.

The exterior combines brick, aluminium and glass panel siding to create an unexpected modern aesthetic that will stand the test of time, while complimenting the contemporary style of the interior. Not to mention the stunning architecture will mesh perfectly with its neighbouring building — the future Alt Hotel.

Interior selections provide completely customizable colour palettes, high-end standards, and homeowners even get to choose their exterior door colours. And while the thoughtful specifications are stunning on their own, upgrade options are available to homeowners if they so wish.

Charron Ungar, the president of Avi Urban, is very excited for August, especially the amazing location of the final buildings. “Avi Urban is so proud of August at University District. The team has truly designed such an amazing mixed-use building situated on one of the best corners in the entire community”.

Sales for August started back in March and feedback has been fantastic. With pre-construction pricing ranging from the $260,000s to the $540,000s, buyers are scooping up their homes at amazing prices. The building is already 25 per cent sold and construction is set to begin in fall 2018.

Once completed the community of University District will cover 200-acres and offer a wealth of amenities, services and experiences. With a vast collection of shops, pathways and entertainment options, residents won’t have much need to leave the community at all. Buyers are thrilled with the conveniences that the location provides and the lifestyle that comes along with such a lively and versatile community.

“Our homeowners will undoubtedly be spoiled by the convenience of it all,” says Ungar. When purchasing a new home, no matter where it is, location really is everything — and August at University District without a doubt delivers.

Primarily from neighbouring northwest communities, new homeowners love the area, and are happy to maintain their lifestyle in a more manageable, lower maintenance home.

August at University District residents will reap the benefits of the main floor retail shops, a spacious communal lobby, a second floor mixed-use patio, the close proximity to Central Park, and secure underground parking, which includes a car wash, bike and personal storage space.

From the stunning location, customizable colour palettes and interior features, nine-foot ceilings (10 feet on the sixth floor), and shared amenities; Avi Urban delivers the whole package with August at University District.
