LIDO: The Wait is Over
Bosa Properties has put the finishing touches on its impressive LIDO sales centre and designer display home, now open on the shores of False Creek. CEO Colin Bosa says, “We’ve owned this property for years, and are very excited to now bring this highly-anticipated site to market.”
Strategically situated in the southeast False Creek neighbourhood, LIDO is a 19-storey condominium tower that is walking distance to major transit routes such as SkyTrain and AquaBus, and mere minutes from downtown. Bosa continues, “Over the past year we’ve been working with our award- winning design team to craft homes of unsurpassed quality and livability, and we hope you’ll be pleased with the results.”
LIDO makes an impressive architectural and sustainable statement, and offers LEED Gold design. Living here means not sacrificing the environment, and not sacrificing the luxuries homebuyers desire. Charge your electric car in one of the private vehicle charging stations, or use one of the LIDO co-op cars for weekend trips. LIDO has homes that suit every budget and lifestyle. One-bedrooms start at 552 square feet, two-bedrooms are over 1,000 square feet, with spacious three-bedroom luxury suites on the sub-penthouse and penthouse floors. “Some homes have water views, others have city views, and many look right down onto the pool,” says Jean Openshaw, sales manager.
All LIDO homes come standard with finishing touches that most devel- opers would deem to be upgrades, including premium Miele appliances, wide-plank flooring, hotel-inspired bathrooms with Hansgrohe fixtures and stone floors, and of course, Bosa Properties’ legendary attention to detail. There’s even a “vanishing TV” in the mirror of the bathroom!
The LIDO concierge desk is not only fully-equipped with the latest security systems for residents’ peace of mind – it’s equipped with a full-service coffee bar so the concierge can make your perfect latte in the morning.
What’s more, Bosa Properties is pre-paying for two years, all the expenses required to operate this, meaning that cup of coffee will not only be perfect – it will also be free each morning! In addition, Lido’s concierge desk will be fully equipped as residents’ very own business centre.
LIDO’s rooftop pool offers a sublime retreat in the heart of the city – bring on the lazy summer afternoons. Accompanied by heated cabanas and serviced by the LIDO WiFi network, the LidoDeck is the perfect urban escape.
Already, Openshaw says, there has been a lot of interest in LIDO — “Everyone from young, first-time buyers in their 20s to people in their 70s. They mostly have one thing in common – to be close to the amenities of southeast False Creek, and have easy access to living downtown without actually being downtown. LIDO’s location provides all of that, plus easy access to the Broadway corridor and Granville Island, too.” Homes are priced from the mid $300,000s.
The Lido sales centre and designer model home at 1650 Quebec is open daily from noon to 6 p.m. Register online at www.bosaproperties.com to stay up-to-date on the latest information.
