Unveiling Magna: Elevating Urban Living in University District with Jayman BUILT

January 23, 2024

With construction planned to begin this spring, an exciting new builder will be joining the University District community; Jayman BUILT. The newest project, Magna, is a luxury concrete-built condominium project that will provide a new level of elegance and convenient urban living in University District. Magna earned its name from the Latin  “Magna Cum Laude” distinction, meaning ‘with great praise,’ symbolizing Jayman’s commitment to showcasing the highest level of finishings that they have ever delivered in any product. 

For more than 40 years, Jayman BUILT has been a trailblazer in new home construction, sustainable building practices and energy-efficient designs. As we welcome Jayman to University District, we celebrate their commitment to innovation, showcased by spearheading the introduction of BUILT GREEN® in Alberta in 2005. Magna is set to be as environmentally friendly as possible by maximizing efficiency throughout, reducing water consumption, energy usage and the associated costs for future residents. 

“University District prides itself in offering a variety of home options from some of Calgary’s most successful builders. We are thrilled to welcome Jayman BUILT to University District. With mindful features and a focus on sustainability, we believe that Jayman is an exceptional addition to University District, and we look forward to formally celebrating this project launch,” says Gregg Callander, Interim President and CEO for University of Calgary Properties Group.

What to Expect from Magna

Conveniently located adjacent to Northwest Commons Park, Magna residents can enjoy a serene escape from the bustle of the city right in their backyard.

Magna’s concrete-built residential buildings will house one and two-bedroom condominium suites, including six penthouses with a total of 82 suites over two buildings. Magna offers diverse living options to cater to different lifestyles, with suite sizes ranging from 637 to 2,540 sq. ft.

“Magna offers a refined living experience in University District, providing another excellent option for discerning buyers. With a strong focus on sustainability, the highest-end features we’ve offered to date, smart home technology and impeccable finishings, Magna will be the crown jewel in University District and the best place to call home in Calgary’s northwest,” says Chris Johnstone, Vice President for Jayman BUILT Multi-Family.

Key Features and Amenities at Magna:

  • Efficient heating and air conditioning 
  • Private inner courtyard with water features and covered gas fire pits
  • European-inspired luxury kitchens in each suite
  • Green focus with 260 solar panels on the exterior across both buildings and triple-pane windows
  • Smart home technology for modern living complete with smart light switches throughout and a wall-mounted Amazon Alexa Smarthub with a touchscreen
  • Spacious and private covered balconies 

Magna offers a maintenance-free lifestyle, where residents don’t have to stress about little things like landscaping, snow removal or worrying about when a package is being delivered. Instead, occupants can enjoy indoor and outdoor amenities including the private inner courtyard with water and fire features and relax knowing any deliveries will be taken care of with Magna’s parcel storage room. 

Personalization and Choices for Future Magna Residents

Home personalizations help bring your dream home to life by tailoring styling choices around your preferences.

After purchasing a pre-construction suite with Jayman, each future resident will have the opportunity to personalize their new home by consulting with the professionally certified interior design team at Jayman’s styleMagic™ Design Centre in Calgary. With suite features including 9’6” to 11’6” ceilings, luxurious finishings and underground parking, Magna ensures an upscale living experience that can only be heightened with personalized details. 

The Jayman styleMagicTM interior design team can work with your budget to personalize your entire home to your tastes and lifestyle. Some of the features available to personalize include flooring, lighting, countertops, colours, appliances and fixtures to help make your home feel like yours from the second you walk in the door.
