Two flourishing neighbourhoods in Burnaby — Brentwood and Metrotown — have become extraordinary places to call home.
Amacon — one of Vancouver’s most influential real estate developers — has been constructing beautiful homes in the area for years. They have strong roots in both communities, helping their many residents to live, work, and play well.
The latest, attractive new property by Amacon is the Alaska building. As a boutique collection of 164 well-appointed units over 22 floors, it has options for one-, two-, and three-bedroom concrete condos and loft homes, starting at $499,900.
There are plenty of available options at Alaska to fit your needs. The loft homes have up to 848 sq ft of living space, the studios and one-bedrooms go up to 589 sq ft, and the two- and three-bedroom options reach as high as 1,356 sq ft.
Whether it’s a garden home with a large private patio, a loft home with street access, or a penthouse, the Alaska building is an idyllic place to build a new life.
Health and well-being are the design focus of this new Brentwood building. Each unique space boasts forward-thinking architecture, carefully curated interiors, clever space planning, and thoughtful landscape design.
The expert design is obvious as soon as you enter the glass-enclosed lobby that looks more like an art museum than an apartment building. The double-height ceilings — towering above the polished concrete floors and concierge desk — really open up the space.
Natural sunlight fills the lobby, inviting a warm feeling whether you’re coming or going. To reach your home from there, ride comfortably in one of two high-speed elevators.
With equal parts utility and beauty, a home at Alaska isn’t just your living space; but a place to recharge, a sanctuary for work and pleasure. The calm interiors offer two colour palettes (grey and white) with rich textures and patterns throughout every home. All of this is surrounded by breathtaking views of the cityscape, mountains, and nearby parks.
The floors are designed with high-quality laminate flooring with seven-inch wide planks. Throughout the unit, roller shades cover the windows, allowing you to adjust the feel of your home to fit whatever mood you desire.
Smooth finishing is found on the ceiling — in the bedroom and main living areas where the ceiling is heightened. A full-sized, front-load stacking washer and dryer are also included for in-suite laundry.
Speaking of appliances, the kitchen includes a European stainless steel gas cooktop and wall oven. The dishwasher and refrigerator are also European and integrated for a sleek aesthetic.
With quartz countertops, flat-panel cabinets, open shelving, under-cabinet task lighting, and a dual spray faucet, the Alaska kitchen is a dream for anyone who loves to cook. Enjoy a quick bite at the island, a full-course meal at the dining table, or a late evening snack on your spacious balcony.
If the kitchen was a place for creativity and cooking, the bathroom is a private haven for relaxation and self-care. Close your eyes, lay back, and enjoy the deep soaker tub across from the quartz countertop and nickel finished fixtures.
You can also relish morning awakenings in your frameless glass shower, embracing the spa-like experience when you step out onto the marble patterned porcelain tile.
Clutter is never an issue in these bathrooms either, with open wall shelving and pull-out vanity organizers featuring adjustable shelves.
Even with a home that has so much to offer, there’s more to enjoy and take advantage of.
The Central Green outdoor area is a massive 8,000 sq ft space, accessible only to residents of the Alaska building. Enjoy the outdoor fireplace and outdoor kitchen with a built-in gas BBQ.
Grab a seat on the available benches for some easy living recreation in the afternoon. Meanwhile, little ones can have some fun in the children’s area. There’s also a designated urban agriculture area for any residents with a green thumb.
Inside, the amenities are just as impressive. Get your workout on in the two-level fitness centre with a yoga studio or relax in the social lounge (complete with a gourmet kitchen and dining room).
There’s also a TV lounge, an indoor children’s playroom, a games room, and a Think Lab for the times you need a quiet space to work. And if you have out-of-towners coming over in the future, you can reserve the guest suite for them to stay in.
As soon as you step inside, Alaska feels like a private oasis — but there’s much to enjoy in the surrounding community, too. You’ll be just a few steps from the Brentwood hub and convenient shops, public transit, restaurants, and other services.
At Alaska by Amacon, you can begin a new life in the perfect home and be a part of a growing community.
