Floorplan: Plan 3C, Alaska, Amacon
The penthouse’s front door opens directly in view of the kitchen, which is finished with a centre island, quartz countertops and a French door fridge, a feature that’s exclusive to Alaska’s penthouse suites. The future plan purchaser can opt to build a den in the open-concept living and dining area, which could make for a quiet office space or extra storage.
From the living area, the penthouse extends into the outdoors with the help of the 648-square-foot terrace. With easy access to the kitchen, this outdoor space could create the ideal lounge area for entertaining, complete with a potential barbeque and some deck chairs.
Heading to the east side of the penthouse, you’ll find two reach-in closets for handy storage, a powder room, and two of the bedrooms with their own private ensuites. The principal bedroom is situated at the far side of the suite, touting a walk-in closet and a bathroom with a dual-sink vanity and a frameless glass shower.
From the buyer’s choice of two neutral palettes, the penthouse interior colours are paired with seven-inch-wide plank laminate flooring and nickel door hardware throughout the unit.
Alaska kicked off sales in November 2020, and is still in the pre-construction phase. Once complete, the 164-unit tower by Amacon will feature 8,000 square feet of outdoor amenity space, including a children’s play area, picnic tables and an agricultural area.
The latest information from BuzzBuzzHome shows that pricing for available floorplans at Alaska begins from $589,900.
