A Cultured Living Experience
Thesis is a unified neighbourhood concept, coming soon to Vancouver’s Oakridge neighbourhood from Alabaster Homes. It consists of three levels of condominiums built above one level of commercial space with a mezzanine, and two levels of underground parking. Up to 10 commercial retail units face West 49th Avenue, while two floors of office space overlook the lane. The 68 condominiums offer nine floorplan types that range from a 384-sq-ft studio to a 966-sq-ft 3-bedroom suite. Homeowner amenities include an 868-sq-ft party room with a kitchenette, and an adjacent patio with a barbeque dining space and a social area.
With three cycling routes, a frequent service bus route, and Langara-49th Avenue Station, you will enjoy a healthier, car-free lifestyle at Thesis. The redevelopments at Langara College, Langara Family YMCA, and what will become Oakridge Town Centre, will mean that most of your daily needs can be met within a 10-minute walk from your front door. Hop on a bike and you’ll be surprised by how close Queen Elizabeth Park, False Creek, Hillcrest Community Centre, and Granville Island are. And with Langara-49th Avenue Station only 500m away, it only takes 20 minutes to reach Downtown or YVR. Thesis offers a new kind of living experience: one where culture, location and form come together to enrich the way you live.
