In the Grandview-Woodlands area, a new condominium community is set to debut, connecting residents to one of Vancouver’s most cultured neighbourhoods.

Popolo offers a mid-rise collection of 81 carefully-curated condominium homes. This six-storey project is coming to a neighbourhood aptly known as The Drive, located near the East Broadway Corridor and Commercial Drive. Vancouver-based EPIX Developments delivers a European-inspired design aesthetic to Vancouver’s iconic neighbourhoods with open floorplans that lend easily to the expectations of modern living.

Explore the neighborhood’s vibrancy and culture, with the Old-World Italian charm of Commercial Drive paired with desirable amenities that feel like village living in the city. Popolo sets residents just steps from independent stores, restaurants, bars, parks and cafes. Within walking distance, find yourself at Trout Lake Community Centre, local schools, eateries, and countless independent merchants. Downtown Vancouver and UBC are accessible with the B-Line and SkyTrain only blocks away, easily connecting riders to Waterfront Station and the future site of St. Paul’s Hospital within 10 minutes.

These one-bedroom-plus-den to three-bedroom condos deliver carefully curated floorplans ranging from 689 to 1,136 square feet in size. Popolo’s floorplan designs offer great lighting with the 8’8″ ceilings — 10’8″-plus in penthouse suites — energy-efficient LED pot lighting, and double-glazed windows that display views of the North Shore and downtown skyline.

Connection to the outdoors is key to Popolo’s floorplans. Many homes offer expansive outdoor spaces with private access to ground-level terraces, Mountainview patios and penthouse terraces that lend easily to sunrise yoga practice or simply unwinding with guests at sunset.

TKA+D Architecture + Design Inc. created a striking and timeless building exterior by melding classic and contemporary features together, such as an exterior greenwall, new technology with interior and exterior materials and green initiatives throughout. The award-winning Kleen Designs’ inviting interiors are comprised of Italian-inspired finishes and colours that foster an ambiance of warmth and togetherness. Homeowners can select from two designer colour palettes, Lumino or Ombra, to match the sleek, modern matte black hardware and polished quartz countertops in the kitchens and bathrooms.

Chef-inspired kitchens showcase innovative design features such as the matte black linear pendant lighting and an integrated European stainless steel appliance package. Sleek European-inspired cabinetry with soft-close hardware and a standard built-in pantry offers plenty of storage space, along with a focal island suited for both entertaining and creating.

Kleen’s interior design sensibility is captured through the serene bathroom’s aesthetic, prioritizing clutter-free storage and clean lines. This layout allows the eye to focus on the large-format tiled floors and herringbone-tiled shower wall finished with stunning matte-black framed and curbless glass.

Pricing starts from the low-$500,000s for one-bedroom suites and from the mid-$700,000s for two- and three-bedroom residences.

The theme of inspired living is carried throughout the Popolo project with an array of resident amenities that support creativity, active lifestyles and entertaining. The Popolo Lounge lends extended entertaining space for family dinners and summer gatherings with a full chef’s kitchen and a wraparound terrace kitted with outdoor grills and a dining area.

Popolo’s Makers Space provides a place for creative juices to flow in the 400-square-foot dedicated studio for children’s projects and future creative endeavors. Popolo also keeps your four-legged friends in mind with an outdoor access dog-wash station for your Trout Lake doggy beach adventures. The secure underground parking garage offers hardwiring for EV in-stall charging and cycling storage with e-charging capability.
