Iconic Edmonton Companies: ArtHouse Residential

The Iconic team has been long time admirers of ArtHouse Residential and their consistent focus on improving the residential development landscape within Central Edmonton. Whether its a full custom home, a garage suite or a sauna, it seems everything they build is quality and utterly iconic.

ArtHouse Residential is an Edmonton-based custom infill home builder that prioritizes collaboration and efficiency. They strive to challenge the status quo, working with clients to craft personalized sustainable homes without sacrificing lifestyle, space or aesthetics - all while helping them save money on their monthly mortgage. With a focus building dense versatile properties tailored around individual lifestyles granting access to urban experiences: building a home with Arthouse means achieving sustainability, value and ultimate style.

As Edmontonians themselves, the owners of ArtHouse care about the communities they work in.  With each new home developed by ArtHouse, not only the property its sits upon improves; the whole street, the entire community and the City of Edmonton benefits as a whole.  More recently we were conversing about the concept of aging in place and how that affects the standard perspectives of Infill homes in Edmonton. Curious on their take, the owners of ArtHouse put it best when they said:

“An aging-in-place home goes beyond maximizing your financial investment in a property. It’s also about keeping strong social connections. People often build relationships with neighbours and become invested in their community. A home and the surrounding community can contribute to your sense of identity. Adaptable homes benefit the community by enabling people of all ages and abilities to remain a part of it. Age-in-place homes help people maintain their sense of identity and connection to place.”

At Iconic we see time and time again that owners are faced with the pressure to move as their current home does not meet the standards of their changing abilities which is why we admire companies like ArtHouse who are having these conversations with their clients before they become an urgent necessity. 

Just like any long term investment, planning for the future is key.  Creating an aging-in-place home transforms a regular dwelling into an accessible, functional space for all ages. By incorporating hidden features in the layout and design of your house, you make it easier to accommodate any unexpected injuries or surgeries that could occur down the line. Not only does this guarantee added security - but if you choose to sell later on, accessibility is sure to entice potential buyers and increase your overall value.

Afterall, who wouldn't find comfort knowing they can live comfortably regardless of age?

Plenish: Revolutionizing the Furniture Industry

The Iconic team was lucky enough to be introduced to the founders of Plenish this week before they establish their operations in Edmonton.  I say lucky, because it is clear they are about to be so busy, I may never get a chance to have a one on one conversation again with them in the future.  So what is Plenish?

Plenish was founded out of two friends’ vision for a better furniture industry. As both were navigating major life events like marriage, having babies and obtaining their master degrees in 2020; furnishing their new homes became an arduous challenge due to the costs and inconveniences involved with traditional purchases or rentals - something they had experienced all too often during their 10+ moves over the last decade.

Seeing this issue as one shared by many others looking for easy-to-access home customization options amidst rising costs of living & transient lifestyles, they created 'Plenish': A stylish subscription service that would alleviate any worry around wasting time searching stores or disposing of damaged items; With 12 million tonnes going into landfills yearly!

Plenish was founded on the simple idea that people should be able to enjoy quality furniture without having to commit long-term. With its flexible terms of 1-12 months, customers can access premium pieces while also benefiting from cost savings - all tailored around their ever changing lifestyle needs. Not only is sustainability a key part of Plenish's story with products built for longevity and refurbished items moved onto new homes; but users are also given an extra degree of freedom through options such as being able swap or return goods when desired, ensuring they never pay more than retail price in the process. Now everyone has a chance at creating home styles which reflect today’s modern ages!

With the Plenish team continuing to grow, their vision for creating beautiful and functional spaces across Canada is quickly becoming a reality. All ready in Vancouver and Toronto, they are heading to Edmonton next! They bring life into once empty rooms by helping people turn them into homes with timeless furniture pieces. As they continue down this path of success there's no telling how many more cities will soon be blessed with their work as Plenish continues its mission become a household name in home furnishings!

Iconic, as a team who requires short to long term staging for show suites and furnished rentals, we were absolutely amazed at the affordability, flexibility and sheer range of options Plenish offers.  Mark my words, Plenish is one to watch and I can’t wait to see them dominate in this industry.

There is more we can do. You can help.

A staggering 120,000 Ukrainians have sought refuge in Canada over the past year. Alberta specifically, has become a safe haven for more than 26,000 Ukrainian people since Russia's invasion began over a year ago. Despite not being considered refugees under Canada's immigration program, a special authorization for emergency travel was created by the federal government and offers immediate assistance payment of up to $3,000 per adult and $1,500 per child upon arrival.

Catholic Social Services is one community group working tirelessly towards supporting these newcomers whose needs continue to be complex as many Ukrainian families come without savings or connections. Catholic Social Services has been able to provide 25 government-funded hotel rooms where individuals can stay free of charge up to 2 weeks while permanent accommodations must ultimately be found elsewhere. Much assistance still remains necessary – displaced Ukrainians desperately need our help now more than ever before.

How can you help? 

1. Donate to Catholic Social Services

2. Volunteer at a local community groups helping Ukrainian newcomers

3. Spread awareness about the needs of Ukrainian people arriving in Edmonton

4. Support organizations that are offering housing and other services for new arrivals

5. Help refugees secure employment opportunities

6. Assist families with language barriers in finding support networks

7. Provide cultural orientation programs for newcomers

8. Donate quality furniture and household items

9. Offer educational opportunities and career guidance to immigrants

10. Mentor young Ukrainians who have left their homes

Iconic Yeg supports the lease up efforts at various purpose built rental buildings within central Edmonton. In partnership with the developer we have been able to adjust our approval process to ensure more Ukrainian people arriving in Edmonton have access to expedient and safe housing. Currently at 121 West, an apartment building in the Brewery District, we are offering a $0.00 damage deposit to all Ukrainian new comers; as well providing property tours and lease signings in their native language.

At Iconic YEG we were incredibly fortunate to have the opportunity to connect with Catholic Social Services and through their network we were able to find our two newest employees Olena and Dmyrto!

Olena is a brilliant and dynamic leasing agent who supports our prospective tenants by finding their dream apartment that suits not only their needs, but their desired lifestyle.  Fluent in English, Russian and Ukrainian, Olena has been instrumental in supporting both the Ukrainian newcomers and longstanding Edmontonians find their new homes. 

Dmytro is Iconic’s Information Technology Business Analyst, and under his guidance we have been able to develop an efficient and robust system to support our real estate, project sales, and rental operations.  Highly educated and business minded, we could not be more lucky than to have him on our team and supporting our future goals.

They have now been with our team for three months and have been absolute superstars and I am so excited to see how we grow to support future roles and employment opportunities for Ukrainian newcomers within our organization. 

For more information or if you are a Ukrainian considering a move to Edmonton, please reach out to us and we can help find housing at 121 West, The Beacon at East Junction or with some of our other rental partners.

The Community of Mission in St. Albert

Settled in the 1860s by Métis families and influenced profoundly by Father Lacombe and Bishop Taché, Mission is a vibrant corner of St. Albert that has remained connected to its roots even as it grew over time. The tranquil beauty of the area was first spotted from atop a hill above Sturgeon River, where historical intrigue met with inspiration for this unique neighbourhood - home now to the city's oldest building: an iconic chapel built in 1861 that remains standing today amongst quiet hilly streets filled with stories waiting to be told!

Established with a desire to create something special, the mission at St. Albert would soon weather immense trials and tribulations on its way towards becoming an incredible community today. Métis families moved in right away, followed by nuns and orphans not long after - although smallpox then wreaked havoc among these pioneering folk; half of the population was lost to tragedy before they could truly settle into their new home. But what had started as just an idea quickly turned into reality – within a few short years it gained village status, transitioned fully into townhood come 1904…and eventually became the beloved destination we know so well now!

The story of St. Albert is a timeless one, with its roots tracing back to generations ago; where what was originally just prairie and farmland has since then blossomed into the peaceful oasis we now know as Mission. Here, visitors can observe firsthand how schools, homes, infrastructure and even cemeteries were built up over time as history continued to be written in this area - traces that will no doubt remain for years more still yet!

Today, Mission is the vibrant heart of St. Albert, a bustling community full of life and energy that caters to both its young and old alike. With 2,400 residents spanning across generations - boasting an average age of 55 years – it offers something for everyone: parks for outdoor enthusiasts; shops catering to all needs; educational institutions fostering knowledge acquisition; plus low-to medium density housing in perfect harmony!

Schools in the Area

  • Elementary: Bertha Kennedy Catholic Elementary School, École Father Jan, Muriel Martin, Ronald Harvey

  • Junior High: École Secondaire Sainte Marguerite d’Youville (French Immersion), Vincent J. Maloney Catholic Junior High School, William D. Cutts
