Chinook Villa is a 46 unit condo-like apartment being built by Eagle Builders of Blackfalds, AB. The Charis Village Board members made a careful commitment to provide seniors with homes that are safe, durable, comfortable and energy-efficient, and with these goals in mind, they chose an Eagle Built structure. The precast concrete "sandwich panel" walls provide extremely high durability and energy efficiency, exceeding even the strictest building codes. The concrete mass provides exceptional R-value, meaning the building will keep an even temperature with the least possible use of energy.
The thick walls also insulate sound so that you don't have to listen to your neighboor's bagpipe practices, and they don't have to listen to your hard-of-hearing hubby's TV! Even more importantly, this building is classed as non-combustible with its concrete and steel framing. Eagle Built structures are recognized as having low maintenance, low insurance costs, and longevity. To learn about Eagle Builders and their process, check out their website below:
The design provides an open concept living area and includes as many large windows as possible, filling the units with natural light. The 4th floor is designed with high ceilings and transom windows for extra light and a spacious feel. The units are a good size, ranging from 908-1394 sq ft. All are wheelchair accessible with wide doors and walk in showers, and all units have their own laundry and full air-conditioning. Each unit has an underground heated parking place and storage area included, and on the main floor is a large gathering room for guests and gatherings. Maintenance and repairs are the responsibility of Charis Village. Pricing starts at $288,000, including all appliances, legal, GST, and realty costs. To view the floor plans, click on the link below:
