Frequently asked questions:

What is a studio condo?

The terms studio and bachelor are commonly used to denote a single unit with an open concept living and bedroom area. Our floor plans have maximized the design so the living area and bedrooms are more separate, while still being open concept. Our studio condos feature a living room space, a bedroom space, full bath, full kitchen and dining area with plenty of storage options.

What makes an Elevate Living condo more attainable?

Elevate Living has employed a number of concepts to deliver a housing product that’s the lowest price on the market. For starters, Elevate is building on a unique infill lot, just the right size for a unique, custom built development. Another element that allows Elevate to deliver a lower cost to its customers is the size of the units. Bulk purchasing through local vendors also enables Elevate to pass on those savings to its clients with the goal of helping to meet a need in the local housing market. Another element is the company passion and purpose: the team at Elevate believes in helping people attain home ownership.

Absolutely not. Add ons are available for your convenience. Our condos fit regular size furniture and we encourage lots of creativity when decorating your space. Like any new home, it’s important to measure before purchasing new items.

Is this development Inspired by New Urbanism?

Yes. “New Urbanism is a movement united around the belief that our physical environment has a direct impact on our chances for happy, prosperous lives. New Urbanists believe that well-designed cities, towns, neighborhoods, and public places help create community: healthy places for people and businesses to thrive and prosper…As momentum for mixed-use, walkable neighborhoods has grown, New Urbanists have risen to the challenge of building on past successes, establishing new design and development standards, and accelerating the pace of change.”
