A year and a half ago we covered the ground breaking ceremony for Avli on Atlantic, the modern styled, mixed-use project by Greenview Developments. Today, SkyriseCalgary was on hand as officials from the City and Greenview celebrated another milestone with a topping off ceremony.
Brian Kernick, president, Greenview Developments, owners Penny Stathonikos and Chris Stathonikos and Ward 9 Councillor Gian-Carlo Carra, were on site to trowel the final ceremonial concrete patch marking the building as officially structurally complete. AVLI started out as Chis and Penny Stathonikos' vision to replace their Autobody shop, Arrow Autobody, and build a condo development. The luxury residential building was designed by Jeremy Sturgess of Sturgess Architecture, an award-winning design firm with more than 35 years of architecture and design experience.
The $36 million building will be Inglewood's first seven-storey building, and will add another 66 residential units to the neighbourhood. The project also includes four retail bays totalling 5,000 square feet which will front onto 9th Avenue, bringing extra retail to Inglewood's popular shopping strip. Combined with the neighbouring South Bank development, the whole south side of the block will be transformed when finished.
The name of the development 'Avli on Atlantic' offers a nod to Calgary's historical Inglewood, with the 'Atlantic' portion of the name based on the original name for 9th SE, which was once called Atlantic Avenue.
Avli on Atlantic is now into the home stretch of its construction cycle, with completion scheduled for late spring of 2019. SkyriseCalgary will be sure to return to this project as progress continues.
