Set within the coveted UBC peninsula, Sail embodies the latest evolution of West Coast modern architecture — a harmony of simplicity and nature. These urban apartment homes encourage indoor/outdoor living at its finest, with Wesbrook Village amenities close by and verdant greenways connecting community and home.
Living in this academically astute neighbourhood has never been so easy – and serene. Groceries, schools, and a number of other essential services are literally a minute, or two, away on foot. With a brand new community centre anticipated for completion next year and the newly renovated University Hill Secondary opening for the upcoming school year, there’s never been a better time to make this community your home. Located in the catchment of some of the province’s top ranked schools, not to mention UBC, one of the West Coast’s most renowned universities, Sail will offer access to a priceless education path. The Chan Centre for Performing Arts and Museum of Anthropology are just minutes away, so you need not look far to see that the pursuit of higher learning is all around.
Sail is a community of one, two, and three bedroom apartment homes built to REAP Gold standards. These homes are designed to reduce our eco-footprint and yours – saving you money, while doing what’s right for the environment.
Pull back the curtains. Awaken everyday to nature at your door. In true West Coast Modern style, your home is a fluid transition between outside and in. Whisper quiet ventilation fans continuously provide fresh air and regulate humidity while full-height windows, extended lines and efficient floor plans create spaces for thoughtful living. In the kitchen and bathrooms, surfaces are a refined echo of those out your window.
You can be proud that your home also meets REAP Gold level, a high standard of energy conservation and ecological design in architecture. Over 50% of materials used are manufactured locally and all lumber and plywood was harvested from sustainable forests. Green label carpeting and low VOC paints ensure healthier air quality, while low flow faucets, shower aerators, and water efficient irrigation technologies mean smart water usage. These are just a few of the environmental considerations made in the building of your home.
