Higher living at Adera’s Prodigy

Adera has been inspired by greatness with Prodigy, their newest condominium project at the University of British Columbia.



Adera has been inspired by greatness with Prodigy, their newest condominium project at the University of British Columbia.

“Prodigy will be the best building we’ve ever built,” says Eric Andreasen, vice-president of marketing and sales for Adera. “We’ve taken what we learned from our past projects at UBC and put it all into Prodigy.”

Prodigy is Adera’s second six-storey wood-frame project at UBC, and will include two buildings and 188 homes ranging from 640 to almost 1,000 square feet.

“It’s been highly successful so far,” says Andreasen. “The first phase is almost 50 per cent sold, and now we’re looking forward to the next phase of the building.”

Prodigy’s exterior is inspired by the natural surroundings, incorporating exposed wood beams, cedar soffits and warm brick cladding. A dramatic two-storey glass lobby bridge and breezeway will link the two buildings. Residents on the penthouse level will all have their own private roof deck, known as Adera’s signature West Coast Lanai. The roof soffiting will be extended over a portion of the deck to allow homeowners to use their deck year-round.

“This is something people will be proud to come home to,” Andreasen says.

The defining feature will be the extensive water elements, including the massive reflecting pond in the interior courtyard, where ground-floor patios will have water right up to the edge. Residents will also have stunning views of neighbouring Mundell Park and the lush landscaping that will surround Prodigy.

Inside, homeowners will find an elegant kitchen with stainless-steel appliances, quartz slab countertops and a porcelain tile backsplash. One of the upgrades available is the “Ultimate Gourmet Kitchen” package, which Andreasen notes is now going to be standard in the penthouse units after several buyers on that level requested it.

The luxurious bathrooms feature porcelain tile flooring, complemented by quartz slab countertops and sleek plumbing fixtures.

Homeowners at Prodigy will have access to the i.D. By Me program, which allows you to personalize your home with upgrades that are right for your lifestyle and your personality. Some of options you can choose include your colour scheme, upgrading your appliances, changing your flooring, or custom millwork.

There will be pedestrian and cyclist-only green streets on two sides of Prodigy, enhancing the natural feel of the entire development, and connecting Prodigy to various parks and other parts of Wesbrook Village.

Homeowners at Prodigy will be able to take advantage of all the amenities that the  neighbourhood has to offer, including an elementary and secondary school, shopping, dining and recreation. They will also be just steps from Pacific Spirit Regional Park, with its 762 hectares of beaches and temperate rain forest.

Adera is currently celebrating the end of the summer with a promotion for new buyers that gives you air-conditioning as a standard feature. Contact the sales team for more information!

There are also 10 finished homes at Prodigy’s sister project, Sail, ready for immediate occupancy in time for the start of the 2014/2015 school year. The furnished display homes at Sail have also been released. Don’t miss out on this opportunity!

Homes at Prodigy start in the low 400s. For more information, visit www.adera.com, email prodigy@adera.com, call 604-221-8878 or visit the presentation centre at 106-5983 Gray Avenue, Vancouver, open daily between noon and 5 p.m.
