Aragon’s Glasshouse Lofts in Port Royal

Tuesday, April 1st, 2014


Every once in a while, a condominium development comes along that is so singular, so avant-garde that you can’t help but take notice.

Such is the case with award-winning Aragon Properties’ GlassHouse Lofts.

From the sliding barn door with satin aluminum pulls in the master bedroom, to the exposed reclaimed brick feature wall and the contemporary folding glass systems that open up to balconies and penthouse terraces, GlassHouse stands above the crowd.

Glasshouse features 67 one-to-four-bedroom loft-style residences with 10-to-20-foot-high ceilings in a five storey building. Ranging in size from 828 to 1,331 square feet, they start at $345,900 for a one bedroom. The loft model is distinguished by its living, dining and kitchen areas in the front, with the bedrooms and bathrooms set a few steps away at the back of each suite.

The moniker suits it well. From floor-to-ceiling glass doors that slide and disappear to each side, each home offers up sweeping views of either the Fraser River or the New Westminster Quay and Port Royal Park.

The gourmet-inspired kitchens come with a premium GE Monogram Energy Star-rated stainless steel appliances, polished solid quartz countertops, Kohler fixtures and contemporary sleek cabinets, to name just a few of the executive-style features. Other luxury characteristics include white oak engineered hardwood flooring throughout the main living area, an edgy electric fireplace in living rooms and natural gas fireplace on penthouse terraces.

For those who know Aragon Properties, GlassHouse Lofts’ unique blueprint comes as no surprise. For more than 25 years, Aragon has built its reputation for creative, innovative and forward-thinking design combined with outstanding quality. This April, Aragon will release its seven stunning penthouses for sale. “These two-level, two-to-four bedroom penthouse homes are spectacular and range from 1,180 to under 1,500 square feet,” says Laurie Melo, sales manager for GlassHouse Lofts.

GlassHouse Lofts are centrally located in the Queensborough district, a vibrant and emerging community with a rapidly redeveloped waterfront area known as Port Royal.

For the outdoor devotee, one simply has to step out the front door for access to the 1.7 kilometre riverfront walkway and the three-acre Port Royal Park.

Meanwhile, residents enjoy a quiet setting with all the urban amenities they crave– entertainment, cafes, grocery shopping and boutiques. The entire Port Royal master-planned community, a 52-acre site that Aragon has been developing since 2006, is set to become an iconic, innovative neighbourhood in Western Canada’s oldest city.

GlassHouse Lofts offers a rare combination of stylish finishes, original design layouts, high ceilings, and incredible views. A building like this doesn’t come along very often, if ever, so this is your opportunity to come and see the unexpected. The Glasshouse Lofts presentation centre is open daily from noon to 5 p.m. Saturday to Thursday (closed Fridays) at 210 Salter St., New Westminster.
