Overview of the District

Both District buildings have been designed to fit right in. Similar to the community itself, the project has art spaces, sustainable features, green outdoor spots for friendly chats, and all sorts of other stuff we think you’ll like. Located close enough to the area’s cultural scene so you can feel it, but not so close that you can hear it, this is a prime spot. This is District.
There are two brand new buildings: 255 E. 7th Ave. & 250 E. 6th Ave,. and a fully restored heritage building 299 E. 7th Ave. After all, mixing the old with the new is what we’re all about.


Downstairs, we’ve got your indoor times covered. We’ll be installing the most kitted-out media room you could imagine. With surround sound, a big flat screen, comfy seats and a wet bar.
Yes, you read that right. Wet bar.
If fitness is your thing, the building also has a full workout room. That means an actual gym including cardio machines and free weights, not just some creaky pulley-operated contraption from the eighties.


What do you normally see on the tops of buildings? People you don’t know, in a penthouse you can’t afford. We didn’t much like the sound of that, so instead, we’re building two rooftop patios for everyone. They’ve got big barbecues, lots of lounging spots, a shared vegetable garden, and even a couple of fireplaces. Don’t like heights? Then check out the courtyard between the residences and heritage building. Take a seat on a bench, and have a deep thought or two.
Maybe you’ll think. “Hey, who does all this gardening? It’s really nice.”
The answer is, “Not you, so don’t worry about it… ever.”

It's clear Amacon did its homework before marketing its latest condo development in Mount Pleasant, one of Vancouver's oldest and most creative enclaves: The show suites are furnished with art by local artists, the brochure was produced by a design firm in the 'hood and floor plans were designed with artists in mind.

But at the end of the day, it's price that drives sales and this is likely the biggest reason why District South Main is poised to attract buyers: Amacon says its suites are priced below comparable resale properties.

"We competitively priced it. We knew that we had to be realistic," said Nic Jensen, sales manager for District. "We're back to pricing pre-construction homes lower than resales. That's very reassuring; it gives the buyer confidence that there's something being left on the table for them. And that's how it was when everyone was buying five or six years ago."

Prices start at $223,900 for a studio of 425 sq. ft., while one bedrooms between 544 sq. ft. to 616 sq. ft. start at $279,900. Two bedrooms, from 763 sq. ft. to 978 sq. ft., start at $384,900 -- which Jensen notes is comparable to a one bedroom in Yaletown.

It's for this reason that the preview has been drawing prospective buyers from downtown, the suburbs and, of course, the local Main Street neighbourhood.

"The building and location itself is very trendy. There's definitely pent-up demand to live in the area," says Jensen.

Located at 251 E. 7th Avenue, just half a block off Main Street, the development is comprised of two new condo buildings plus a restored heritage building that will be turned into commercial space.

In designing District, Amacon was cognizant that it was building in a neighbourhood with a strong sense of community that values both creativity and authenticity.

As such, the restored heritage building, which once housed beer, supplies and horses for the nearby Brewery Creek, will see half its commercial space allocated to artists, be it a dance studio or art gallery. Amacon has yet to determine who will be moving into the other half.

Amacon is currently marketing the condos in the 10-storey south building, with 103 units. The second building will be nine storeys with 148 condos. There is no release date on the second phase yet.

Building on the success of its Beasley development downtown, whee Amacon slashed prices by a minimum of 22 per cent in the spring in order to push sales, they've similarly kept prices down at District by negotiating lower costs on the construction side.

And in partnership with radio station Rock 101, Amacon is giving away a 630-sq.-ft. condo, as well as a $15,000 Harley Davidson, a Fuego barbeque and iMac computer package. Two hundred keys will be given out and on Nov. 6, a draw will be held and the winner announced on Rock 101.

Completion for the first building is slated for July 2012.
The preview is on now with sales starting Oct. 3.
