Raising a Prodigy at UBC

Adera is bringing a second wood-frame project to UBC with Prodigy.



The University of British Columbia will soon welcome an extremely intelligent addition to the area: Adera’s Prodigy, a condominium development that is already meeting some pretty high expectations.

“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 will be Adera’s 11th and 12th buildings in the area, and will be built just west of one of the company’s most popular projects, Sail.

Sail was Adera’s first six-storey wood-frame building at UBC, and Prodigy will follow in its footsteps. With two buildings, 188 homes and an increase in the number of three-bedroom homes offered, Prodigy is offering spacious open floorplans and some truly gorgeous features, inspired by Adera’s famous West Coast Modern architectural style.

Overlooking UBC’s Mundell Park, Prodigy will have an emphasis on outdoor, natural living, with extensive green space and natural pathways that will link the community together.

“We are planning a massive water feature in the courtyard of Prodigy,” says Andreasen. “It’s going to go right up to the ground floor patios. We’ve really accentuated the water aspect at Prodigy.”

The exterior will be built with many elements of West Coast design, including strong coloured brick, natural cedar, painted wall panels with metal reveals and glass and metal railings.

Inside, a dramatic two-storey glass lobby will welcome you and your guests home, and a bridge will connect both parts of the first building.

The homes themselves will feature an optional “Ultimate Gourmet Kitchen”, which is an Adera upgrade option. This time, Prodigy will also include gas cooktops, which Andreasen notes have been requested by other Adera homeowners as well. There will also be Toto fixtures in the bathrooms and huge windows to let the natural light pour in and take advantage of the beautiful views. Most homeowners will have expansive views from their patios or balconies, including many overlooking the water feature and over to Mundell Park. Residents on the top floor will have their own private roof deck, which Andreasen calls the West Coast Lanai, another signature Adera option.

“These will be the largest rooftop decks we’ve ever done,” he says. “We are also extending the soffiting over a significant part of the decks to provide protected space so you can get outside even when the weather is difficult.”

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

Homeowners at Prodigy will be able to take advantage of all the amenities that the Wesbrook Village neighbourhood has to offer, including schools, parks, shopping, dining and recreation.

“It’s literally just two blocks to retail and other commercial space,” Andreasen says.

Adera is encouraging interested buyers to register on the website in order to get advance information about Prodigy and an invite to the VIP functions that will take place starting at the end of the month. The project is expected to open for sale to the general public at the beginning of April, and is expected to be extremely popular.

“This project will truly be our own prodigy,” says Andreasen.

Homes at Prodigy will start in the low 400’s. For more information and to register, visit www.adera.com, or call 604-221-8878.
