A New Vantage Point in North Burnaby
Embassy’s new vantage highrise is poised to become brentwood’s most esteemed and luxurious residential address
Hovering 30 storeys over Burnaby’s emerging Brentwood neighbourhood, Embassy’s Vantage defines the peak of luxury living. This gleaming glass and concrete high- rise has been designed by award-winning Chris Dikeakos Architects Inc. and developed by Ryan Bosa’s Embassy Development. Vantage combines true luxury and timeless value. Luxury, because these spacious homes come equipped with the very best appliances, fixtures, and furnishings, and value because large two bedroom, two bathroom homes start in the mid-$400,000 range. Once it’s completed in early 2013, Vantage will be Brentwood’s landmark community, its ‘best address’ in the very heart of the Lower Mainland’s transportation network.
The Vantage experience begins the minute you step inside the luxuriously-appointed two-storey lobby, with its oversized chandelier, elegant marble floor, and concierge station featuring custom-designed millwork. Vantage offers better value simply by giving homeowners more space. Soaring 9-foot ceilings enhance a feeling of freedom. Floor-to-ceiling windows and expansive balconies invite natural light and allow for comfortable outdoor living. South facing units have panoramic city views, while homes on the north side enjoy a stunning perspective on the North Shore and the twinkling lights of Grouse Mountain.
Located on Burnaby Mountain, the Playground of the Gods is a group of 50 or so totem poles carved by Japanese artist Nubuo Toko and his son Shusheo.
Homes come in two style schemes created by Cristina Oberti. The Contemporary scheme features a two-tone cabinet palette with rift cut oak lowers and white lacquer uppers, while the Classic scheme showcases dark wenge cabinets throughout. Each scheme provides either a polished quartzite or granite countertop for both the kitchen and bathrooms. Durable laminate hardwood floors cover the entry, kitchen, living, dining and den, while bedroom floors utilize luxurious loop-tip shorn Beaulieu carpet. The spacious kitchen is a chef’s dream with a premium stainless steel appliance package from Electrolux, featuring slide-in gas range, dishwasher, and a Samsung 17.8 cubic ft. French door refrigerator with bottom mount freezer.
In the bathrooms, soaker tubs refresh and restore. Frameless clear tempered glass shower doors with chrome hinges in the master bath. Brentwood’s major shopping destinations and BCIT Burnaby Campus are only moments away. Located at the midpoint between downtown and SFU Burnaby, the area is extremely well served by rapid transit and schools, and is close to many parks and cultural centres.
Vantage’s amenity centre is the perfect place to entertain and unwind. A spacious lounge with kitchen is perfect for hosting informal gatherings, complete with billiards table and ample seating. The fitness studio features ‘his and her’ change rooms, sauna and generous hot tub. In summer, enjoy the terrace with its fire pit and children’s play area. An on-site concierge service will welcome you and your guests to add that special feeling that luxury living provides.
Vantage is built by Embassy Development Corporation, an independent BC-owned company operated by highly experienced professionals. Established in 2004 by Ryan Bosa, Embassy is founded on his extensive experience building world-class projects throughout North America.
