Stars Align With Capella, the Latest U/D Residential Project

August 16, 2018 by University District

Capella is the newest addition to University District’s housing options, with a rarely seen offering of luxury single-level residences.


Calgarians are ready for the next big thing on the homefront, and we’re excited to share that we’ve partnered with Brookfield Residential once again to announce the latest real estate concept for University District – Capella!


Drawing from Brookfield Residential’s southern California residential successes, Capella will feature two distinctive and impeccably designed styles: a collection of contemporary condos and a luxurious selection of single-level residences – a unique offering to University District. We’re excited about the single-level residences because the design combines the spacious layout and flow of a single-level home with the appeal of condo life.


Capella includes single-level residences with more generous square footage and exceptional features – a design that offers a diverse and accessible housing option to homebuyers and U/D,” –James Robertson, West Campus Development Trust President and CEO. 


Our partnership with Brookfield Residential runs deep. The IVY, Brookfield’s first project at U/D, welcomed new residents in July 2018. Curious to learn more about the IVY? Take a look here.



Life at Capella


What’s different about the single-level residences at Capella? Only 50 units available, there will be two to three homes per floor with a maximum of eight residences with a private garage, all with access to a semi-private elevator for each. The spacious residences, with two- and three-bedroom options from 1300 to 2000 square feet, including penthouse homes, have a generous square footage if you’re looking for open layouts. An added bonus: you will have the opportunity to work with a interior designer at The Brookfield Studio to create a home that truly represents your tastes and desires.


The modern apartment condos, with 1- and 2- bedroom plans at 550 to 1000 square feet, are the perfect balance of urban and on-trend design. The 92 available units are planned out to use every aspect of living space to maximize your lifestyle. More so, award-winning and world-renowned local architecture and interior design firm McKinley Burkart is bringing a new level of sophistication in living options to the residential development.


What else does Capella offer? Brookfield Residential has designed it so all eight buildings for the Capella (one condo and seven single-level residence buildings) are connected by the centrally-located landscaped courtyard cabana and glass breezeway, making it easy for neighbours to meet and have fun together.


At University District, life works here! We have a people-first philosophy, so you can live your best life. Our hope is that the residential options available meet your needs to age-in-place and live in a community that supports your ideal home life. The diverse multi-family housing at University District by our builders, like Brookfield Residential, is shaping the urban community we anticipate it to be.


“We look forward to building this dynamic style of home, tailored for those who put their quality of life first and are ready for their next chapter in life. The design is fresh and relevant while meeting practical, evolving housing needs in Calgary. – Ryan Moon, Director of Business Development for Brookfield Residential.



Connection to Community is Key


Easy walks and bike rides to work, neighbourly visits on the rooftop patio, coffee dates at the park, and fitness plans for the weekend – University District means creating opportunities and spaces where you can connect and just enjoy life. Capella matches our vision to connect the community, and is conveniently located steps from pathways to and from all amenities and our newly opened 2-acre north park and pond.

We welcome new residents, neighbours, friends, and Calgarians to make those meaningful connections at University District as we grow. Mark your calendars for October 20, 2018 to join us for the Capella show suite grand opening at U/D’s Discovery Centre.  Brookfield Residential is accepting registrations now, and pre-sales will start once the show suite opens.
