The Big Reveal:

Stratus Owners get First Glimpse of New Homes


For some SOLO District homeowners the anticipation and wait to see their units is finally over. Many future residents of Stratus have had the opportunity to go on walk-throughs of their homes.

“People are really excited to finally be able to see something concrete,” said Gemma Karstens-Smith, Appia’s customer liaison. “Some people bought in the summer of 2012, so they have been waiting fortheir new homes for over three years!”

“New owners learn about the different products used in the construction of their homes – from the materials used for the countertops and floors, to how their air conditioning and heating systems work,” Karstens-Smith said.

Now that the amenity spaces have been completed, residents are also getting a chance to check out the lobby, fitness centre, steam room and sauna during their tours.

“We’re really looking forward to getting all of the home owners into their new homes,” Karstens-Smith said. “SOLO District is going to be a really special community.”

SOLO District: The Place to be in Business


The new North Burnaby development boasts a prime location, an array of amenities, a pedestrian-friendly design and close proximity to transit.

“The large, safe boulevards connect shops and local residents, which creates a village atmosphere at SOLO District,” said Meghan Kennedy, the development’s leasing manager. “Recent studies have shown that high pedestrian volumes have a positive impact on businesses economically and appeal to a younger demographic,” she added.

“SOLO District is an urban community with retail that services the residents and office tenants, creating an upbeat, modern environment and a desirable place to live and work,” she said.

There are many other perks to being in business at SOLO District. A fitness facility and outdoor multi-court that includes showers, change rooms and day lockers, will be available to office employees. The development will also feature an “end of trip” facility complete with bike storage, showers and lockers for tenants who cycle to work.

All phase one retail spaces have now been leased, but one retail unit is still available in phase two. Phase three and four leasing will launch once phase one and two are complete.
