One of the few projects to emerge from Vancouver’s post-bubble real estate cycle is offering buyers an affordable option that offers stunning views of the downtown against the North Shore mountains.

District, an Amacon development, is located in the middle of the South Main Street neighbourhood at 299 E. 7th Ave. One-bedroom condos will start at $279,900 when sales open this Saturday.

According to the developer, the complex will be designed using state-of-the-art building techniques and rise 10 storeys, which will give homeowners a picturesque view of the mountains and Vancouver’s cityscape.

Amenities include two outdoor rooftop patios with a barbecue area, two fireplaces and a vegetable garden. Inside, the building has a fully equipped workout room as well as a media room with surround sound, flat screen TV and a wet bar.

The suites feature large windows, wood floors and spa-like bathrooms. Each kitchen will be decked out with stainless-steel appliances and stone kitchen countertops.

Bob Cabral, Amacon’s senior vice president, said the development is “an amazing opportunity for young professionals.”

“With District we’re aiming to blend affordability with luxury — so people aren’t forced to flee to the suburbs to own the home of their dreams,” Cabral said.

The homes are scheduled to be ready for occupancy in Spring 2012.
