What I love about the Sydney building at 2065 W 12th Ave in Kits, is that not only is it a concrete and steel constructed building, (which is amazing in itself considering that normally you only get wood construction on a 4 storey building like this), but it also has a gorgeous brick exterior.   It's not just brick on the front and then stucco on all the other sides.  It's brick all the way around the entire building.  I'm not the only one that has noticed that either.  In fact, the building was recognized in 2005 winning an award for that.  The units are not $2-3 million units and yet the lobby is wonderful and has a real welcoming feeling with rich wood panelling, even into the elevators.  The detailing in the hallways namely the extensive crown and floor moulding which even surrounds the unusually high 9' entrance door, really makes it feel more comfortable and more like home. It's a great building that looks fantastic right now and it's 8 years old.  In another 10  years people will still be saying "Wow, what a great looking building.

At the moment units range in price between $379,900 and $839,900.  The square footage of the units range from 581 square feet and 1098 square feet.
