It’s tough to say what you’ll first notice when you walk into a suite at The Guardian, the 44-storey condo development by Hon Towers Ltd, soon-to-be built in Calgary’s resurgent Victoria Park neighbourhood.
Maybe it’ll be the taller than average ceilings, or perhaps the sustainable eco-wood laminate flooring.
But most likely it will be the epic views and natural light streaming though the floor-to-ceiling windows of Calgary’s tallest residential tower that will give you the most pause.
Once you get past that, you might notice the extended balconies beyond the windows, which, at up to 472-square-feet, are perfect for having friends over for a barbecue.
After your initial reactions, you may notice that the suite just feels right. After all, The Guardian is designed around the perfect set of floor plans, not the exterior architecture. This means that the homes feel larger, and are more comfortable and sensible.
Inside The Guardian bedrooms, the floor-to-ceiling windows are on display once again, allowing you to take in the breathtaking views while lying down on your bed or standing on the sumptuous 100 per cent wool carpet.
The Guardian’s open concept kitchens are the heart of the home, with their high-end appliances, Italian-designed cabinets, kitchen islands and quartz countertops.
The bathrooms are also outfitted with superb European design, complemented by the clean, sleek lines of the quartz countertops and backsplash, deep ceramic sinks, modern polished chrome basin mixers, glass-door showers and deep soaker tubs.
We could go on and on about all the great features and amenities, but the best way to experience all this is to see it in person.
To do that, visit The Guardian’s complete one and two-bedroom show suites at 456 – 12th Ave SE in Calgary (located in the historic Bungalow schoolhouse), open 12pm to 6pm Monday through Thursday, and 12pm to 5pm on the weekends.
