Edmonton’s newest luxury rental set to open

Wednesday, January 27, 2016

The Oliver, Edmonton’s first luxury and purpose-built concrete rental tower in over a decade, is set to begin leasing its studio, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom apartments.

The 10-storey, 207-unit building offers upscale features and finishes akin to condominiums. Each unit at The Oliver includes a balcony, panoramic views, and conveniences such as in-suite washer and dryer, and full stainless appliance packages. Tenants will also enjoy a lounge, fitness centre, and a rooftop deck with views of the downtown core and nearby River Valley. Heated underground parking and secure bike storage accomodate all modes of transportation.

Located on Jasper Avenue near 124th Street in Edmonton’s historic West Oliver neighbourhood, Planet Organic Market recently joined Canadian Western Bank as the building’s newest retail tenant, complementing the already-impressive list of nearby amenities that make the area one of the city’s most desirable neighbourhoods.

“We are committed to raising the bar for what makes a desirable rental opportunity in Edmonton,” says Bruce Timm, President and CEO of ICM Realty Group. “That means celebrating and complementing the existing neighbourhood. It means including everything a tenant needs and offering even more.”

Smart and thoughtful planning led to open-concept floorplans with optimised sightlines. Neutral colour palettes were chosen to complement a variety of furnishings and tastes. The in-suite amenities – which include a full stainless steel appliance package, washer and dryer, storage, and temperature control – ensure residents are empowered to make the most of their home.

The Oliver aims to “offer a clear view to a better life,” a reference to the panoramic views and the easy access to a variety of work, live, and play options nearby. Shopping, transit, and recreational facilities are all close, as is the largest stretch of urban parkland in North America, the River Valley.

Dialog, the architects behind The Oliver, were recently honoured for design excellence in two categories at 2015’s Canadian Architect Awards of Excellence. They also won the 2015 Canadian Consulting Engineering Award of Excellence for the Edmonton International Airport Combined Office and Control Tower.
