CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Nov. 25, 2014) - Embassy BOSA announced today the launch of The Royal - a mixed-use residential and commercial development just off 17th Ave. at Mount Royal Village West, coming to market spring 2015. In partnership with First Capital Realty, The Royal will house 223 spacious homes, along with 90,000 square feet of retail and office space anchored by a high-end grocery store.

As an urban extension of Mount Royal Village West, The Royal will be situated between 8th and 9th Street, along 16th Ave. This will strengthen the area's position as one of the most walkable, pedestrian-centric neighbourhoods in the city. "This is a game-changer," said Brian Kozak, executive vice-president for Western Canada for First Capital Realty. "This will completely revitalize the retail in this area and create a focal point in this growing community."

Embassy BOSA sees The Royal as a prime example of the company's long-term vision of building sustainable urban communities in Calgary's most promising areas. The development, valued at more than $120 million, will add 223 new homes to the neighbourhood.

"We are pleased to be working with First Capital on a project that will contribute to the incredible energy and culture that is evident throughout this area," said Ryan Bosa, president of Embassy BOSA. "The 17th Ave. and Mount Royal Village area is known as one of the city's top vibrant districts, with a growing collection of restaurants, shops and services, and we are proud to complement this expansion through our latest residential development."

Standing 34 storeys high, The Royal will offer smart floors plans that are designed with Calgary's urban dwelling end-users top-of-mind. Embassy BOSA has put an emphasis on providing maximum liveability and comfort through its exoskeleton design, which allows for more efficient floor plans and the building will be engineered for a special collection of larger homes on the upper eight levels.

Continuing on the path of comfort, The Royal will also feature a well-appointed lobby with full concierge services and oversized balconies with mountain and downtown views. Suites will range in size from 598 - 2,018 square feet with homes starting in the mid $300s.
