Seattle, WA (June 30, 2023) – Today, Bosa Properties Inc. (“BPI”), an integrated Canadian real estate company with 35 years of trusted experience, unveiled the new brand name for its growing U.S. subsidiary, IPB Properties (“IPB”). The company’s early entry into the Seattle market came under temporary names “Fairview Developments” and “CCB Properties” as it worked on developing its new brand. IPB is best known for REN – a luxury high-rise apartment building built in partnership with ARCI, with 457 rental homes in the heart of Seattle’s high-tech neighborhood that blends art, architecture and nature.
IPB will focus on building vibrant community hubs made of unique rental homes and curated commercial spaces in high-growth U.S. cities with shifting demographics. The name inspired by the company’s unique approach to imagine, plan and build extraordinary spaces, creates a distinctive mark for the emerging business. BPI and IPB will share a bench of expert talent delivering end-to-end human-centered property development and management services. IPB will be the only operator for the company in the United States.
IPB’s first project, REN, was recently named Building of the Year by readers of the Daily Journal of Commerce and awarded a 2023 Award of Excellence Winner by the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH). With amenities that include multiple food and beverage concepts developed by beloved Seattle brand Tutta Bella, an outdoor rooftop lounge and BBQ area, a podium-level pet spa and a rooftop games and entertainment room, REN has become a thriving community hub with a 95% customer satisfaction rate amongst renters.
IPB plans to expand its rental offering in the Seattle market with Belltown on First – a mixed-use development project designed to reflect the pulse of the historic Belltown neighborhood. Located at 2700 1st Avenue at the corner of 1st Avenue and Clay St, the 15-story, 270,000 sq. ft. project will include 240,000 sq. ft. for residential rental units, including 240 one-, two- and three-bedroom homes, as well as 16,000 sq. ft. of ground-floor retail and three levels of below-grade parking.
The company is also actively working on the market entry for its second U.S. city, with a three-tower mixed-use development planned to break ground in Nashville, TN later this year.
