BuzzBuzzHome tracks new construction
homes only. We define new construction
homes as newly built homes that have never
previously sold or rented. Therefore, once
such a home is sold or rented we consider it
to have passed into the realm of resale
at which time we stop tracking it.
Already under construction, this new community will introduce 135 homes to the neighbourhood with a variety of homes from efficient studios to stunning penthouse suites with incredible views. An array of different housing options awaits buyers at Drake, each designed around today’s active downtown lifestyle. Roughly one third of the 135 residences are studios , one third are one-bedroom suites with the remainder a mixture of spacious two-bedroom/two-bath suites, and seven two-storey ground-level town-homes featuring direct access to the tree-lined street.
Sitting on the corner of 7th Street and 15th Ave. SW, Drake is in the heart of the trendy 17th Avenue and Beltline neighbourhood, within walking distance of many boutiques and restaurants, including 1410, Una, Caffé Beano, Melrose Café and Bar and The Ship and Anchor Pub.
Drake’s design is smart and green. Designed to LEED standards, the building sports some of the latest eco-friendly technologies, including water smart plumbing and energy efficient building envelope systems. It incorporates over-height ceilings in most living areas and clever floor plans that maximize space. All homes are equipped with luxury features like a European-style ceramic backsplash, composite stone countertops, engineered wood flooring and stainless steel appliances. Buyers have the choice of 2 designer colour schemes by the award winning InSight Design Group.
