Located in the middle of British Columbia’s third largest city, Sovereign will benefit from its central location near a myriad of restaurants, schools, parks, the Skytrain Rapid Transit station and shopping, including the Crystal Mall—the largest Asian-themed mall in Western Canada. Its central location follows the current trend in urban development, where new developments are centered close to other popular destinations, work, recreational opportunities and transit stations.
Sovereign will feature premium, luxury condominiums. The homes begin on the 20th floor giving tenants picturesque views of Whistler, the North Shore Mountains and downtown Vancouver.
Bosa Properties has developed a variety of high end residential towers in British Columbia, including Paramount Place, Presidia, Monte Carlo and Coronado towers at The Palms in Richmond, Eden in downtown Vancouver, Central Park Place, the Grande in North Vancouver and the Monarch.
Construction will begin on Bosa Properties’ Sovereign tower by summer. It is expected to be complete in early 2014.
