The extensive in-house amenities at Bucci Developments latest building in Bridgeland, Radius, will be ready for residents when possessions begin on January 28.

Many of the homeowners at Radius have chosen to simplify their lifestyle, but simplicity can be luxurious and abundant when the details have been thoughtfully considered. Such is the case with Radius.

“Radius was designed to offer owners a complete lifestyle,” says Chelsey Marshall, Director of Sales, Marketing, and Leasing at Bucci Developments.

She took Condo Living on a tour of Radius’ various in-house amenity spaces (totalling 16,000 square-feet) which include separate studios for yoga/barre, spin, weight training, and cardio training.

Each room features state of the art equipment. For example, all 12 spin bikes are equipped with the MyRide virtual cycling software that will allow users to customize their workout.

“Residents no longer need to pay for gym memberships or classes, they’ll find everything they need to maintain their exercise regime right here,” Marshall says.

Radius also takes care of the less obvious, everyday needs. There is a dedicated room for online grocery deliveries, the ‘SPUD Room’. allows residents to do their grocery shopping online and have them delivered straight to this common pantry in Radius where they can pick them up when they get

According to Marshall, SPUD will offer grocery delivery service every day of the week to Radius residents. “Most locations in the city only receive groceries on certain days” she says. “That said, this is really a room for residents to use for any grocery delivery service. It’s easy, convenient, and it keeps the
lobby and hallways clear of delivery boxes.”

Radius’ concierge service will help take care of residents’ everyday needs and keep the building operating smoothly. “You’ll never have to worry about missing a package delivery,” she says.

The community of Bridgeland itself plays a key role in Radius’ complete lifestyle package. “The location Radius offers is unique; there’s no need to compromise. You’re close to downtown and many of the major arteries in the city, yet you are parkside in a quiet neighbourhood with panoramic downtown
views,” adds Marshall.

Bridgeland is replete with all kinds of eateries, some of the most famous in all the city, in fact, including OEB Breakfast, La Brezza Ristorante, Blue Star Diner, Sushi Bar Zipang and many more. “There are plenty of parks and pathways and green spaces. We’re near an off-leash dog park and Radius has its own dog wash for added convenience,” she says.

The building is also a five-minute walk to the Bridgeland CTrain station, the Bow River and the extensive RiverWalk pathway system. The building is designed to take advantage of this proximity, enabling an active lifestyle. Bike storage and a workshop are among the amenities residents have access to. “The workshop provides a convenience not just for residents looking to make repairs on their bike but also for other tasks usually reserved for the garage or yard in a single-family home — for example skiers and snowboarders  can work on their equipment.”

Then there’s the piece-de-resistance: the fabulous 8,000-square-foot-roof top patio! With its marvellous city views, Marshall says they have even had enquiries about its availability for wedding ceremonies. “We think this will be the most popular spot in the entire building,” she says.

The rooftop terrace offers plenty of space to cozy-up next to a 10-foot double-sided fireplace, wine and dine in the barbecue and visiting areas, or room to grow and harvest veggies in the community garden.

“The building really leaves little to be desired,” Marshall says. “All homes have heated underground parking, additional storage lockers, air-conditioning, and private balconies with a gas line .”

Topping it all off is the fact that Radius is poised to become Calgary’s first LEED Platinum multi-family residential building. “We are mindful of the impact what we build will have on the environment; both at large and inside each home.” Features like heat recovery ventilation conserve energy while improving
air quality in the building and in your home.

“Many of our homeowners are choosing to live in smaller homes for a number of reasons. With a building like Radius, all of the amenities and common spaces will function as real practical extensions of their private living space. You’re living a lifestyle usually reserved for a sprawling inner-city mansion!”

That is, without the price tag or maintenance! Radius offers a mix of plans, from 618-square-foot one-bedrooms, to over 1,200-square-foot two-bedroom-plus-den and penthouse suites. “The majority of homes in Radius are our Junior two-bedroom, two-bathroom plans, a number of which will come in well
under $400,000.”

Only 35 per cent of Radius’ 201 suites remain and owners will start moving in on January 28. Every in-house feature and amenity that the developers, Bucci Developments, had promised is set for owners to enjoy. Visit the Radius building for a tour and to see the stylish functional sophistication these homes and amenities have to offer for yourself.
