Magna will be equipped with the highest-end features and finishings from Jayman BUILT to date, and is perfectly suited for University District, Calgary’s award-winning urban community.

University District (U/D) is pleased to announce Jayman BUILT (Jayman) as the newest builder joining the community with a residential offering launching in early 2024: Magna. The concrete-built residential buildings will include one and two-bedroom condominium units as well as six total penthouse suites. Suite sizes range from 637 to 2,540 sq. ft.

Magna is thoughtfully designed with several elegant touches and maintenance-free living as part of its strong appeal. Snow removal, landscaping and package storage will all be taken care of for residents with busy lifestyles. Homeowners will be able to enjoy a private inner courtyard between both buildings, with peaceful water features and covered gas firepits, with UD’s award-winning and accessible park spaces in close vicinity.

Magna will be a place where high-end living and smart home technology meets a beautiful, sustainable and luxurious home in the heart of University District, including solar panels on the exterior and European-inspired luxury kitchens within every suite.

“Magna offers a refined living experience in University District, providing another excellent option for discerning buyers. With a strong focus on sustainability, the highest end features we’ve offered to date, smart home technology and impeccable finishings, Magna will be a jewel in University District and the best place to call home in Calgary’s northwest,” says Chris Johnstone, Vice President for Jayman BUILT Multi-Family.

Each purchaser will have the option to work closely with the Jayman team to customize their residence and each suite will feature 10 to 12-foot ceilings, luxurious and upscale finishing, and access to underground parking, with at least one stall included with each home. Purchasers can choose to consult with a professionally certified interior designer at its styleMagic™ Design Centre in Calgary. A full day at the styleMagic™ Design Centre is included for all new home purchasers with Jayman.

There will be four-unit types available for purchase at Magna:

  • One bed, one bath at 637 sq. ft.
  • One bed, one and a half bath plus a den ranging from 844 to 1,020 sq. ft.
  • Two bed, two and a half bath plus a den ranging from 1,315 to 1,619 sq. ft.
