The Victoria: A model of modern design, and the first construction of its kind in Alberta
Introducing The Victoria – Calgary’s first modular, multi-family residential complex. Located in the highly coveted inner-city community of Marda Loop, the three-story fourplex on 34 Ave. at 15 St. S.W. is truly a cutting-edge, eco-friendly success story.
Constructed off-site in a matter of weeks and craned together on-site in less than eight hours, The Victoria features state-of-the-art energy-efficient technologies, countless eco-friendly components and the most forward-thinking features and finishes on the planet.
Smart, fast, green, pre-fabulous
Among The Victoria’s long list of notable attributes are geothermal heating, hot water and air conditioning, wireless home automation capable of everything from entertainment centre operation to utility consumption monitoring and mechanical system management, as well as numerous environmental upgrades like heat recovery ventilation, triple pan low-E metal clad windows, radiant in-slab heat, upgraded insulation and dual flush toilets.
The future of homebuilding
As with all of Karoleena’s modern prefab construction projects, The Victoria was built to the highest level of environmental sustainability, in a secure, climate-controlled manufacturing facility. Building materials were never exposed to the elements, and the building envelope and components precision cut and constructed to exacting standards. The result was not only the highest quality product, but the greenest building process possible, producing virtually zero waste. From top to bottom, The Victoria was yet another step towards Karoleena’s goal of building homes that produce as much energy as they consume.
Sustainable, speedy, steel-frame construction
Without a doubt, The Victoria exemplifies the kind of building environment that builders and buyers alike have dreamed of for decades, while serving as an upstanding model of the sort of multi-family residential building projects Karoleena Homes is capable of completing on time and on budget, whether for developers, real estate investors or individual buyers.
And pretty, too…
In addition to boasting some serious green, the four innovative homes within The Victoria are also quite stunning, if we do say so ourselves. Because Karoleena’s modular building process allows for easy customization of our architecturally designed units according to the buyer’s taste and preferences, each home’s luxury finishes – including Grohe and Duravit plumbing fixtures, granite and quartz countertops, hardwood flooring, Energy Star Jenn Air appliances, eco-upgraded tile and carpet and more – were custom designed with their own unique flair.
Friendly on the planet, easy on your budget
On top of it all, despite the countless benefits The Victoria had to offer over its conventional, site-built counterparts, speed of construction among them, the homes were extremely affordable and off the market in a matter of weeks.
