In an effort to revitalize and increase population density in our city’s centre, Calgary’s inner core has become the focal-point of high-rise condominium construction.
However, when the last window wall of glass has been installed and the final block of stonework is put into place, the Nuera condos by Cove Properties will define the views into Calgary’s downtown.
Some buildings alter the skyline, while others become its focal point. The Nuera Towers do both. Once completed, Nuera will indeed mark a new era of urban architectural enhancement for Calgary’s city core. The Nuera towers will be the landmark people will use to reference the transition point between Calgary’s downtown and the reinvented and fully restored beltline area that has become The city’s new hip Centre of night life shopping, restaurants and entertainment. John Sparrow, Cove’s Marketing Coordinator, confirms the sleek, elegant towers of Nuera will stand out like shining beacons glittering in the sun, adjacent to its beltline neighbors the Vetro and Sasso towers (also built by Cove Properties). “This Stampede Station area has become the epicenter for the new urban community
And the design concept of Nuera plays into the transition from suburban to urban geography,” says Sparrow. “These are not just condos; they are superbly designed sky homes. There will be 231 sky homes in each 36-storey tower, ranging from a well-functioning 650 square-feet to a luxurious 1,400 square-feet.”
As Nuera will be Cove Properties ‘ third and fourth towers located at the Stampede Station, you could say the Nuera 1.0, the first tower, has continued the legacy of staking Cove’s claim in the Calgary skyline. And, when construction concludes, Cove will be able to boast the best location in downtown Calgary. In addition to its fantastic location, Sparrow says that Nuera also offers the most affordable pricing in the downtown core; with one-bedroom sky homes currently starting from $309,900, and two-bedroom, two-bath sky homes starting at $385,900.
Nuera utilizes environmentally friendly products that reduce costs and enhance efficiency so that the savings can be passed along to the unit owners. As a matter of fact, the Nuera towers introduce Cove’s proprietary and trademarked SMART CONDO design, which is a comprehensive package of design and specification enhancements that add value to each unit while being more environmentally friendly.
This involves everything from thermostatic controls and energy efficient air filtering and circulation systems in each suite, to highly efficient toilets and dishwashers and lowvoe paint products.
Of course increased natural lighting offered by the glass window walls also reduces electric consumption while providing uninterrupted views of the mountains on one side, the downtown skyline on the other, and the river and everything leading up to the city’s core on the expansive east and south sides. In addition to all the desirable building features, the development is so close to so many amenities and linked with the C-Train and handy local path system, that residents are sure to find themselves doing less driving, which is another environmentally friendly aspect of living in Nuera. According to Sparrow, Cove is currently pouring the 21st floor of Nuera 1.0, and its magnificent black window wall glass has already been installed on the first nine floors and looks fantastic! The entire Nuera retail podium is now complete, and soon work will begin on the podium exterior finishing, ensuring that the possession date for Nuera owners will commence in the summer of 2010.
“Nuera’s brand-new boutique style Discovery Centre is now open; located at 210 – 15th Avenue SE, beside the Vetro Tower lobby,” says Sparrow. “We welcome everyone to stop by for a tour of the new discovery Centre, and in addition there are show suites available for viewing in the Vetro tower, complete with Nuera finishing packages.”
