THE PROJECT: Condominium development offering hybrid of traditional home features with loft style . The floor plans maximize functional space with separate bedrooms, storage areas and closets. Each home has private outdoor space—rarity in the city. Every last finish has been chosen to reflect the quality and luxury by which we define Allele. There is also deeded underground garage parking available as an optional amenity.
Plumbing fixtures have been chosen for style and comfort. The floors are vertical grain bamboo. The kitchen feature moon yellow grain granite counters, high quality German made cabinets and Bosch stainless steel appliances. The baths offer over sized showers with double heads, vessel sinks and European style fixtures. Central heating, ventilating and cooling complete the project.
UNIT COUNT & PARKING: Eff 1, 2 BR 14, 1 BR 32, Total 47 and 2 shops.
EXTERIOR: Since the garage extends the full with of the lot and the building sets back from the street, the area over the garage has been designed with patios, trees, shrubs and flowers.
The façade begins with base of precast stone which match the balconies and follows up to the top floor which become square concrete block which reflect the precast. Between the full height windows are brick to match the nearby Gillette building.
