The car-free lifestyle in Calgary just got a lot more...possible. With city council’s unanimous approval to allow N3 in East Village to become Calgary’s first parking-free condominium tower, a new way of living in the city just got a giant step closer. And more affordable. N3 – short for new attitude, new vision, new lifestyle – indeed!
Just 270 easy steps from the City Hall LRT station (which is within the free fare zone) – N3 by Calgary-based Knightsbridge Homes is designed to be the right fit for price-savvy Gen-Y urbanites. Since they don’t have to absorb the hefty price tag of an underground parking stall, N3 residents will be able to scoop up a fully-furnished suite for as little as $199,900 (+gst). That includes a Car2Go credit and an urban bicycle, not to mention open social spaces for entertaining, WiFi connectivity throughout the building and secure bike parking.
Nestled up to the historic St. Louis Hotel at 8th Ave. and 4th St. SE, steps from the New Central Library and National Music Centre, N3 will be perfectly situated for urban explorers who value the freedom of a walkable neighbourhood over car-reliance. The pedestrian mews on 8th Ave. will bustle with retail and commercial space. A full-service Loblaws grocery store, just an easy stroll away at 6 Ave. and 3 St. SE, will make it simple for N3 residents to pick up dinner on the walk home from work. And with all the other amenities of East Village – RiverWalk™, St. Patrick’s Island, the restaurants of Simmons – so close at hand, N3ers will be too busy playing to even miss those car payments.
Check out Calgary’s first car-free condo when N3 launches this summer, and get ready for innovative and carefree urban living.
