Oso Golden to resume sales

After a “pause” in sales, Oso is ready to hit “play” and resume sales on their award-winning building.

“We started sales in mid-March and sold out all of our 1- and 2-bedroom units in 48 hours,” said Ned Johnson from the developer, Innovation Building.

Oso, a winner of the CleanBC Net Zero Ready Energy Award, for its future-friendly, low-environmental-impact design, consists of two buildings with a central courtyard.

Oso 612 is 30 long-term rental apartments, adjacent to the Whitetooth Brewery, which will add much-needed NEW housing to downtown Golden.

Oso 606 is 28 condos for sale, next to the Kicking Horse River, boasting Mountain views in all directions.

The ground floor of each building has 6,000 sq.ft. of commercial space available for lease or sale with a bakery and outdoor patio in the central courtyard between the two buildings.

“When March 16 arrived, it became truly clear that we were not escaping Covid and the situation was very real. We immediately closed our job sites and sales office to reassess the situation and move forward cautiously based on the government’s direction,” Johnson said.

“After closing the sales office, we took a long, hard look at the units that sold so quickly. We then modified the unsold units, and tweaked the design to create better pricing and more 1- and 2-bedroom units, in line with what people are looking for,” Johnson said.

“The interest in Oso has not diminished. The challenges of the current times and the fact that Oso is still so popular have just reinforced our conviction what a great project Oso is. We are very excited to be resuming sales with the plan to start construction this summer.”

“Oso’s natural fresh air heating and cooling system provides fresh air to the units 24/7. Enjoy personal comfort on all levels, a stress-free life in a durable building with refined finishes, low strata fees and no hydro bills, private covered carports, owner storage, tilt-and-turn windows, stone counters, community gardens, workout room, bike storage and workshop, courtyard cafe… and so much more, it’s going to be great!” Johnson said.
