Polygon Homes is bringing something brand-new to Richmond with Avanti, a three-tower community with an urban park.
"The Avanti community is located in one of the best locations in the City of Richmond," says Polygon Homes president and CEO Neil Chrystal. "Situated just one block east of the Aberdeen Canada Line Station, Avanti residents will be steps away from hundreds of services, shops and restaurants including Aberdeen Centre and T&T Supermarket."
The first phase includes Richmond's first Flatiron design building, a 15-storey tower with 164 one- and two-bedroom homes. Many of the homes will offer a panoramic view of the city, urban park or the North Shore mountains.
Among the features in the homes will be engineered stone countertops, glass-tile backsplashes, flat-panel cabinetry and warm wood-style laminate flooring.
The adjacent urban park is one of the best amenities at Avanti.
"The park will have a public plaza for live performances, an interactive walking path, green space and luminous art by internationally renowned Pacific Northwest artist Dan Corson," says Chrystal. "Avanti allows residents to live, commute, shop and relax within a two-block radius and Polygon is ecstatic to contribute to the exciting transformation of this entire neighbourhood."
The park is expected to be completed in 2015, and the first tower in 2016.
Other amenities include a residents-only Jewel Box-style clubhouse with a fully equipped fitness centre with a dance and yoga studio, recording studio, games room and hotel-style rooftop with a grand whirlpool. There will also be a Googleplex-influenced multimedia lounge.
