An MLS listing answers all the questions you think to ask when considering a condo to purchase:
What’s the square footage? How many bedrooms? Does it have parking? How much are the condo fees?
But what are the other things you should know about having an Oliver address? Well, in the case of a condo at The Fifteen, located on 115 Street just North of Jasper Avenue, you’re buying a lifestyle. The building was redeveloped by Triple 5 in 2011 with the inspiration of a boutique hotel. Evident by the common areas (check out that LED lighting in the hallways) and the suite access (FOB controlled), it’s easy to convince yourself you might be in Miami or Las Vegas rather than Downtown Edmonton (winter temperatures not considered).
By combining slick technology (in-mirror television in the bathroom, wireless sound system throughout) with unique finishing choices (leather laminate flooring… I mean, come on), this condo’s style quotient only increases. For a young professional, a galley kitchen is more than enough, with a concealed refrigerator and top-of-the-line built-in cook-top, you’ve got everything you need while not feeling guilty about indulging in the nightlife right outside your door.
One of COMMUNITY’s Principals calls 115 ST home, so it’s on good authority that the benefits of being an Oliver resident are worth noting. Whether it’s grabbing a sandwich from Elm on those days you’re rushed for time (or a coffee on the Saturdays where you overindulged the night before), taking a stroll for groceries (Oliver Square for Safeway, Canterra Centre for Save-On… both recently renovated) or hitting the River Valley for a run/walk/life contemplation, the access to life’s activities is unparalleled. These are the perks of living downtown.
Commutes to work become negligible for those working in the core, hitting up the newest hotspot like long anticipated, Uccellino, becomes a “will do” rather than a “hope to do,” and spending more time outside is a given – how could you drive when your walk is so much more enjoyable?
And all of these benefits are without consideration of the new downtown Ice District. As the City continues to prioritize density and revitalization of the core, Oliver is perfectly positioned to benefit. Its tree-lined streets are within a stone’s throw of a growing metropolis, and its residents continue to be actively involved in the evolution of their postal code (Oliver Community League).
