More about the Kits Mantra Condos
One of the most important factors when purchasing a new Mantra home is ensuring you have a builder with a strong reputation for quality. At Kitsilano's Mantra, all residents will have the peace of mind that comes with knowing their builder has almost 40 years of experience in Cressey.
Incorporated in 1969, Cressey initially focused on building multi-family residential communities. Since then, Cressey has expanded to build office, retail, hotel, industrial and multi-family projects throughout BC, Alberta, and Washington. During all of this time, one thing remains constant and that is Cressey's commitment to superior design and quality construction. With meticulous planning and attention to detail for the Mantra Condos in Kits starting from acquiring land straight through to key turnover and beyond, Cressey is an industry benchmark for professionalism, integrity and quality.
The past few years has been especially exciting for Cressey with landmark buildings such as Elan, Donovan, Park 360, and Mandalay all in various stages of construction and all with the same Cressey commitment to superior design and quality construction. Mantra is the newest addition to the Cressey portfolio and with an inspired West 4th location, iconic glass skybridges and urban organic interiors, it promises to be yet another successful community backed by almost 40 years of building experience.
Cressey Mantra Condos Update
Today, everyone is going green and trying to do their part to help save the planet. At Mantra Condominiums, we’re proud to help you live in comfort while also helping you save energy and money.
Mantra boasts a geothermal heating and air conditioning system. Unlike conventional heating and cooling systems which create heat by burning fuel or powering an electric element, this technology relies on the constant ground temperature the earth maintains throughout the year. In winter, the geothermal system transfers heat from the earth to an environmentally friendly fluid which flows through pipes installed under the earth’s surface and into the building into each suite. This heat is also used to heat the domestic hot water for the building. In summer, the system is reversed so that heat from each suite is absorbed by the earth thereby cooling each home. By using this technology, Mantra Condos in Kits will save an estimated 52 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions per year which is equivalent to planting 1,318 trees!*
While geothermal systems clearly help reduce the amount of greenhouse gas emissions in the air, the use of less energy also means you get the benefit of saving money! With a 650 sq.ft. home at Mantra, a geothermal heating and cooling system will be approximately a quarter of the cost of conventional systems.**
Mantra Kits Condos in Vancouver also uses a green roof system which beyond protecting the roof’s membrane, this lush covering of plants improves air quality, provides sound insulation, and naturally shades and insulates the building which in turn helps save heating and cooling costs. Green roof systems also help to ease the burden on municipal stormwater systems as rain is absorbed by the plants rather than drained into our city pipes.
With earth-friendly features like geothermal heating and cooling systems and a green roof, Mantra Residence Apartments allows you to live in comfort as you do your part to help save the planet and save money all at the same time!
Thank you for your interest in Mantra by Cressey. We are pleased to announce that we will begin previewing these designer homes January 19th! Beginning this Saturday, Mantra Condos in Kitsilano will be open everyday except for Fridays from 12 noon until 5pm. Experience our brand new Presentation Centre where you can explore Mantra's architectural model, floorplans, pricing and of course, fully furnished display suite.
We are located at 2060 Pine Street in Vancouver just off of West 4th Avenue.
Hope to see you this Saturday!

Mantra Get Centered
A collectin of new Kitsilano Vancouver real estate developments are popping onto the scene, and one that is almost complete but still offering condo units at pre-sales prices is the one at Mantra Kits Condominiums. Find beauty within as their marketing calls for. With geothermal air-conditioned concrete residences, Mantra Kits presales condos in Vancouver are what many urban chic home buyers are purchasing. With every detail carefully chosen for its style and functionality at Mantra, the interiors optimizes space and eliminates visual clutter by favouring clean, simple lines and clever details. From wide-plank, engineered hardwood flooring and double thick composite stone countertops to stainless steel KitchenAid Architectural Series appliances including a wind fridge, every inch of your pre-construction Vancouver Mantra condo home proves that life is indeed found in the details. With over 65% sold out already, the Kitsilano Mantra condominiums presentation centre is located at 2060 Pine Street in Vancouver and is open 12 to 5 pm daily and closed Fridays. For more purchase information, please visit their sales office or you can phone 604.734.3488 or visit yourmantra.com. The one bedroom Mantra pre-sales condos start from 642 sf while the two plus den homes are from 985 sqft. Both layouts at the pre-construction Mantra Kits condos are still available.
According to Susan Boyce of the New Home Buyers Guide, Mantra: I’ve been watching it for months. First the signage asking “What’s Your Mantra?” Then the excavation. And finaly the beginning of the structure’s outline begins to rise from the ground. I’ll admist to being a confirmed Kits gal at heart, so you can bet I’m ecstatic about the real estate presales opportunity to check out Mantra in Kitsilano for myself. Located at the corner of Fourth Avenue and Pine Street, this is one great looking, distinctly hip residence. The architecture is crisp and modern yet with a sense of flow, of cadence that somehow reminds me of watching the rhythm of the ocean waves just minutes away at Kits Beach. There’s a pleasing sense of balance too. Two skybridges floating about Mantra’s central fitness cetnre and communal terrace connect the building’s two, mirror-image halves. Decks at Mantra Kits condo presales are huge – some as large as one thousand sqft – giving an airness to the solidity of concrete construction and accents of volcanic basalt stone from Whistler. Some fo the great features at Mantra are the finishes that are environmentally sensitive. Earth friendly living is what the pre-construction Vancouver real estate opportunity at Mantra Kits provides a home purchaser according to Susan. And ehre’s another big time bonus – Mantra Homes will incorporate the latest in geothermal technology. “When people realize they’re going to have an air cooling system, a constant supply of fresh, clean air, plus they’re going to save up to 70% of their energy costs, you should see the way their eyes light up,” Mike says. All this, and no greenhouse gas emissions either. AS Mike walks me back to the reception area, we take a few minutes to chat about the Kitsilano many amenities. Granville Island and Kits Beach are just minutes away from the Kits Mantra condo homes and so are the culinary adventures along Fourth Avenue, the myriad of galleries and walking neighbourhood. Mantra offers a total of only 68 homes ranging from 1 or 2 bedroom suites and they start from $524,900. The Mantra Kits presentation center is located at 2060 Pine Street and is open today!
