Located in Vancouver’s coveted Oakridge neighbourhood, Ava by Thinkhome Realty Ltd. is a five-storey residence that touts a prime location, contemporary design, modern amenities and flexible living options.

Envisioned by Billard Architecture, Ava’s exterior is modern yet minimalist with expansive window walls, clean lines and glass balconies. Double-height, glass-enclosed retail spaces anchor the building at grade, adding convenient new amenities for the neighbourhood, while benches, trees and shrubs create a serene and welcoming streetscape. In order to reduce its impact on the environment, the surrounding landscaping was specifically chosen to protect existing trees and enhance bird and bee-friendly habitats.


The building’s clean lines and contemporary style are echoed indoors, where an elegant, terrazzo-lined lobby is accented with sleek furniture and bold light fixtures. Additional onsite amenities are found on the third and rooftop levels including an outdoor patio with seating areas. The stunning outdoor space comes complete with a gas fire pit and barbecue area, making summer entertaining a breeze. The rooftop amenity also features an urban community garden with over 35 planter boxes for residents to grow their own herbs, fruits, veggies and flowers. Plus, those who work remotely will appreciate the co-working/lounge space designed to foster creativity.


More amenities are steps away in an area of Oakridge dotted with cafes, restaurants and shopping centres. The Oakridge Centre, for example, houses over 575,000 square feet of retail space, and Cambie and Main streets are packed with charming boutiques, restaurants and retailers.

Langara College is within walking distance and serves over 23,000 students, including over 6,000 international students annually and is one of BC’s leading undergraduate institutions, providing university studies, career studies, and continuing education programs and courses.


For a more tranquil experience, take a refreshing stroll north toward Queen Elizabeth Park, a 130-acre public greenspace situated between Riley Park-Little Mountain and South Cambie. Built on a former basalt quarry, the park is 500 feet above sea level and boasts stunning views of the city, mountains and the North Shore. It’s also replete with manicured gardens, exotic and native trees, and recreational facilities.


With homebuyers re-examining what they need from their homes in response to COVID-19, many are prioritizing rooms based on personal requirements and lifestyle changes. Home is now a hub for work and play for many families, motivating homebuyers to search for the right-sized space that fits their needs. In order to accommodate this trend, Ava offers unique features like moveable walls that let you divide a room, add privacy for overnight guests, or create a home office or play area. Some homes are also equipped with innovative, custom-built modular furniture like built-in dressers for additional storage and workstations for homework.


Available suites range in size from 537 to 1,142 square feet with open-concept layouts, large living spaces, gourmet kitchens and generously-sized bedrooms. Homebuyers can choose from two distinct colour schemes curated by AK Design, featuring a harmonious mix of wood, metals and textures.


Home cooks will appreciate the full-sized appliance package from Fisher-Paykel that comes with an integrated refrigerator, electric range, integrated dishwasher, and a Panasonic microwave with a trim kit. They’ll also have abundant storage space inside the custom cabinets that are appointed with under-cabinet lighting and natural white oak doors framed with either black or white to match your selected colour scheme. Timeless quartz countertops not only look great but are durable and include an integrated quartz spice shelf above the range.
