With what are expected to be incredible views of both the city and harbour, along with a full slate of first class amenities, the developer of The Roy is aiming to make this new Halifax condo building a landmark in luxury city living—That is "Limited Edition Living!"
While “location, location, location” is the prime mantra in real estate, Lou Reznick, primary developer of The Roy, is adding “luxury, luxury, luxury” to the mantra with his development of a new 22-storey condo building between Barrington and Granville Streets. In fact, Lou and his partners with Starfish Properties are hard pressed to hold their excitement in check whether talking about The Roy’s location, planned amenities, or incredible city and harbour views, which are touted among the amenities.
As for the location, The Roy is perfectly positioned between Halifax’s harbourfront boardwalk and the attractions up the hill around and near Citadel Hill. With its position between Barrington and Granville Streets, residents are within steps of numerous dining, shopping and cultural enrichment options, and just generally close to all that the city has to offer. And with ownership of almost 40 percent of nearby Barrington Street properties, the developer aims to make the area around The Roy among the most dynamic in Halifax.
The luxurious building and unit appointments combined with numerous planned amenities are designed to foster “limited edition living,” that will make The Roy the Halifax address for luxury condo living. In fact, an entire floor—with fitness centre, swimming pool, sauna, steam room, library, theatre room, party room, bar, billiards and so much more—has been devoted strictly to amenities. Add in the striking architectural features of the building, and visually stunning design details—chef’s kitchens, floor-to-ceiling windows, engineered hardwood flooring, porcelain tiling—common to all suites, and The Roy will be setting a new benchmark for Halifax condo living.
At 22 storeys and with terrific view planes from the residential floors (9-21), the incredible harbour views will undoubtedly up the appeal. However, the developers believe the city views from that part of Halifax are going to be equally noteworthy. As one member of the Starfish team noted, “If we didn’t have the expansive harbour views we have, we would brag about our incredible city views.”
