After seven years in the making, The Independent by Rize Alliance will begin sales in early February, offering a mix of podium, tower and city homes at one of the city’s key community intersections – Main at Broadway.
Inspired by the eclectic mixture of Mount Pleasant neighbourhood buildings, The Independent showcases five vibrant architectural expressions, with exterior facades featuring multiple colours, patterns, and material uses. The Independent was designed by award-winning, Mount Pleasant based Acton Ostry Architects.
All homes were designed with urban livability and practicality in mind. Homes include custom storage units, state-of-the-art induction cooktops, air-conditioning, balconies and cost efficient floorplans.

Who it’s for:
The Independent really caters to a multitude of lifestyles and demographics. It may seem a bit cliché to say but when you offer studio homes all the way to 3 bedroom townhouses with everything in-between it really is the case. You can expect to find young families, urban professionals, local business owners, artists and downsizing couples just to name a few.
At 21 storeys, The Independent will be the tallest tower at one of Vancouver’s key crossroads – Main at Broadway. Studio, one, and two bedroom homes will be available for sale this month. Completion for The Independent is anticipated for 2017.
