For over 30 years, Aragon Properties has been challenging assumptions about how homes are designed, built and sold. True to form, Shift, Aragon’s newest collection of homes in the heart of Little Mountain, started with a simple but refreshing idea – that you shouldn’t have to leave Vancouver in order to grow your life. The result: Forty-three, one- to three-bedroom city homes where individuals, couples and families can thrive.
Smart growth, done right
Aragon believes deeply in smart growth – bringing more diverse types of housing to neighbourhoods where families want to live. Shift offers a concrete example, replacing four single-family houses with 43 spacious condos that are more livable and more connected to the surrounding community. A carefully chosen location just off Main Street provides the best of two worlds, with access to urban amenities, as well as tranquil surroundings. Meanwhile, intelligently designed layouts maximize usable space, outdoor access and natural light.
A neighbourhood for creatives and families alike
Located in the core of Little Mountain at Quebec Street and 35th Avenue, Shift is within walking distance of some of Vancouver’s best parks and recreational facilities, including the green expanses of Queen Elizabeth Park and the award-winning Hillcrest Community Centre. Most importantly, the neighbourhood offers easy access to everyday services and amenities, including libraries, schools and medical facilities.
Walk one block east, and you’ll wind up on Main Street, one of Vancouver’s most energetic strips. Dine at cutting-edge restaurants, sip locally roasted coffee or pop into beautifully curated stores; Main Street offers abundant options for shopping, eating, drinking and socializing. Many of the local entrepreneurs live nearby, giving the neighbourhood its sense of creativity and community.
Open up walls – and possibilities
By combining forward-thinking design and pioneering construction techniques, these homes erase the distinction between inside and outside. Sturdy steel framing allows for folding glass window walls that span up to 20 feet, delivering unobstructed views and access to the outside.
Private rooftop patios are equipped with integrated outdoor kitchens for seamless open-air entertaining. And innovative cantilevered balconies built using timber beams are three times bigger than the norm. Their distinct, staggered configuration sets Shift apart.
The interiors showcase Aragon’s belief that great design and high-quality materials should be standard in each home – not an upgrade. That means wide-open floorplans with built-in flex spaces, energy-efficient heating and cooling systems to keep you comfortable year round, and beautiful, lasting finishes in every room. These thoughtfully designed spaces are crafted with homeowners in mind.
