LIFT: Get more on the mountain!

Homes to Fit your Style

“Lift is already building on the success of Origin just down the street, but by using the natural slope of the site to our advantage, we’re taking design to another level,” says Jeanette Chaput, director of sales and marketing with Porte Development, adding she’s most excited about Lift’s two-level garden homes. “These homes have a walkout
patio that’s right off the main living level, so you’ll be able to watch your kids from the living room or let your furry, four-footed friend run outside while you stay cozy indoors.”

Then there’s Lift’s two-level sky homes that Chaput says have already been capturing the hearts of buyers looking for something different than a conventional balcony. “Each one of these homes has more than 400 sq. ft. of private, rooftop deck,” she explains. “And since every home includes a gas hookup, you know where your friends and family are going to want to hang out for summer barbecues.” For buyers who still prefer single-level living, Lift also offers onebedroom
and one plus den city flats. And no matter which style suites your living, every Lift home comes with a whole lot of upscale pizzazz – such as outdoor gas hookup for your barbecue, bathrooms featuring marble counters, in-floor radiant heating, plus gourmet kitchens featuring gas range and dynamic vertical-grain cabinetry. “Best of all, the amount of space in our two-level homes is amazing,” Chaput says. “We’ve got everything from 900-sq.ft. two-bedrooms right up to three-bedroom with dens. So there’s plenty of room for growing families, or Lift could be a great next step for people
downsizing from a single-family home.”

Celebrate Green Living

UniverCity’s award-winning commitment to environmental stewardship is inherent in every building – and Lift is no exception. Designed to be 45 per cent more energy efficient than traditional construction, Green features include built-in recycling stations directly below the kitchen sink, hot water heating direct from the UniverCity’s District Energy System, plus extensive use of recycled and eco-friendly building materials. Chaput adds most homes also have both north and south exposures, so not only do you have an astonishing amount of natural light, you’ve also got cooling, cross-ventilation – a natural, energy-efficient alternative to air conditioning.
