Celebrate the Lunar New Year with Akimbo, a new condominium project by IMANI Development located within the Brentwood neighbourhood of Burnaby. The event is open to the public and will be held from noon to 5pm at the Akimbo Presentation Centre, located at 2152 Douglas Road. Construction is slated to begin this spring, which makes now the perfect time to buy.
Door prizes will be given away and attendees can spin the wheel for a chance to win even more goodies. Nibble on hors d’oeuvres while browsing the wide selection of floorplans and upscale interior finishes. The Sales Team will be on hand to answer any questions you may have.
Akimbo is set to become the most architecturally-significant building in Burnaby with its angled, offset balconies that blur the line between sculpture and structure. Choose from one-bedroom, two-bedroom, two-bedroom plus den, three-bedroom, three-bedroom plus den, subpenthouse and penthouse suites, priced from the mid-$500,000s.
Situated along the quieter streets of Dawson Street and Madison Avenue, Akimbo is a stone’s throw from Burnaby’s new ‘High Street,’ which is lined with tasty eateries, retail options, grocery stores and hip cafes. It’s also a commuter’s paradise — reach the Gilmore Skytrain Station in three minutes on foot or the Brentwood Town Centre Skytrain Station in eight. The Central Valley Greenway walk and bike path is just outside the entrance to Akimbo and the onramp to Highway 1 can be reached within minutes. A leisurely 15-minute stroll finds you at the newly revived Brentwood Town Centre Mall, home to fast-casual restaurants, essential services and over 30 stores.
Designed by the award-winning Area3 Design, these light-filled, contemporary homes are characterized by floor-to-ceiling windows that offer sweeping views, overheight nine-foot ceilings, durable laminate flooring and spacious balconies or terraces.
State-of-the-art kitchens boast quartz countertops, integrated stainless steel appliances, European-inspired cabinetry complete with soft-close doors and drawers, sophisticated quartz backsplashes and under-cabinet recessed lighting.
Bedrooms offer high-quality wool blend carpeting for warmth underfoot and the spa-like bathrooms are equipped with soaker-style bathtubs, European porcelain tile, polished Grohe chrome fixtures and wood veneered panel cabinets. Individually-controlled air conditioning and heating provides comfort year-round, while energy efficient front-loading LG washers and dryers make laundry day a breeze.
Akimbo features elevated amenities that take their cues from luxury boutique hotels. There’s a stylishly-appointed indoor recreation room with a kitchen, dining table, lounge and TV area, in addition to an outdoor podium courtyard that includes a barbecue and dining area with several sitting areas, an open lawn, garden plots and children’s play area.
Work up a sweat in the fully-equipped fitness centre, tune up your fixie in the bike repair room, or hose down your ride in one of the car wash stations. The chic lobby is overseen by a 24-hour concierge service and the building offers a convenient car share program for those without their own vehicle. The secure and gated underground parkade also features bike storage rooms and electric vehicle stalls.
For those who are unable to attend this weekend’s Lunar New Year celebration, the Akimbo presentation centre is open daily from noon to 5pm (closed Fridays).
