A striking new building along Kingsway will soon become a prominent feature within Vancouver’s fast-growing, master-planned neighbourhood of Norquay Village.
The Windsor is a vibrant new condo tower soon to be completed and move-in ready, located at Kingsway and Nanaimo Street in East Vancouver. Rising 12 storeys from the highest point on Kingsway, this stunning LEED GOLD-certified building created by IMANI Development will act as the anchor for the vibrant Norquay Village, providing residents easy access to a breadth of local amenities in addition to unobstructed views of the city skyline and natural landmarks.
“The Windsor adds a fresh, new chapter to the rich history of Norquay Village,” said Darren Trester, Director of Development at IMANI. “Its modern design and stunning glass windows reflect sunlight and fill the Kingsway corridor with a rich ambiance.”
Designed by the award-winning Ankenman Marchand Architects, The Windsor showcases contemporary West Coast design that highlights clean lines and expansive windows, lending a light-drenched living experience to every home. The Windsor consists of two-buildings that have been ingeniously designed to create an inviting landscaped plaza between the two spaces. By creating this connective new public space that links to Kingsway, the streetscape is greatly enhanced, promoting a strong sense of place. Here, the neighbourhood can come together to socialize, sip a drink on the plaza seating and take in the new public art installations.
“The Windsor is located on the accessible throughway of Kingsway at the centre of Norquay Village,” said Trester. “With the updated Norquay Village Neighbourhood Centre Plan, Kingsway will be strengthened as the walkable neighbourhood ‘heart’ of the community, with greater pedestrian accessibility, wider plazas and sidewalks, and improved storefronts.”
The Windsor’s central location to Metrotown and downtown Vancouver puts residents within walking distance of every conceivable urban amenity, transit and the future Norquay Village Town Centre, located right across the street. The energetic and fast-evolving Norquay Village is also home to a variety of community greenspaces, restaurants, shops, schools, cafes and community services. Enjoy the open, green fields of Norquay Park and Slocan Park, or sample the best of local produce at the Trout Lake Farmers’ Market. Easy access to two SkyTrain stations — Nanaimo and 29th Avenue — will offer a straightforward route to downtown Vancouver, Burnaby and beyond.
Prospective homeowners will have to move fast to secure one of the few remaining homes at The Windsor. These open and spacious units are brought to life by the work of the award-winning i3 Design Group. Take your pick from one of two colour palettes to pair with wide-plank laminate flooring, overheight ceilings and sleek roller shades.
Experience ultimate comfort and convenience thanks to each home’s air-conditioning system, plus energy-efficient laundry appliances and parking included with every home. Test new recipes and entertain guests in the state-of-the-art kitchens, finished with Reverse Shaker cabinets, a five-burner gas cooktop and solid quartz countertops. Unwind from your day in the rejuvenating bathrooms with the help of the deep soaker bathtub and frameless glass shower, plus undermount sinks and soft-close cabinets. Most homes offer private outdoor space where you can take in the sweeping vistas of downtown Vancouver, the North Shore Mountains and beyond. Pricing begins from $819,900.
The Windsor provides a range of on-site amenities for residents, whether you’re looking for a space to host or relax. On the seventh floor, you’ll find the sunny rooftop courtyard, complete with an outdoor kitchen, dining area, garden plots, children’s play area and places to gather. The party room is perfect for all types of celebrations and events thanks to its kitchen, dining area and TV lounge. The Windsor also hosts a fully-equipped gym where you can work on your fitness goals without needing to leave the building.
“As with all IMANI projects, every aspect of The Windsor has been designed and built with homeowners in mind,” said Trester.
