The Albi, Luxury by Brookfield Residential Difference

Lighting up your life
Look up and you’ll see why an Albi kitchen feels so much warmer and brighter. We add extra pot lights and under-cabinet lighting to enhance visibility and eliminate shadows.
More room to cook
What a difference a few inches can make to how a kitchen functions and feels. We ensure there’s a minimum of 39 inches of space between the kitchen island and the perimeter counters, making traffic flow much smoother.
Designer cabinets to suit your taste
Choose from a variety of woods, profiles, and stain colours to ensure that your cabinets fit with your personal style. Full-extension maple drawers with soft-closing hardware make working in the kitchen that much more pleasant.
Luxury for every surface
Thick granite countertops bring beauty and durability to surfaces, while full-height tile backsplashes present an artistic, unified look.
Seamless sinks for a sleek look
Under-mount sinks—in stainless steel or Silgranite—give Albi’s kitchen counters a streamlined, tidy look. These sinks also are much easier to clean and maintain.
Stainless steel appliances with style
Stainless steel brings a certain sleekness to any kitchen. Our stainless steel appliances include a side-by-side fridge (22 cubic feet) with water and ice, a slide-in electric range with ceran cooktop, an over-the-range microwave hood fan, and a tall tub dishwasher.
Wider hallways look more elegant
We design our hallways and passageways to be wider than the usual 36 inches found in most homes. Albi hallways are at least 42 inches wide, creating an invitingly open, comfortable flow from space to space.
Beauty at your feet.
Hardwood flooring in the great room, kitchen, main hallway and foyer ties the main floor together beautifully. You can select from a variety of woods and stain colours, and pre-finished wood floor vents provide a stylish finishing touch.
Inviting closets
Designed with style and function in mind, our spacious bedroom closets feature swing doors with magnetic catches for easy access.
Quality from your feet up
Our 100% nylon carpet is made all the more sumptuous by the underlay beneath it. Albi uses 10 lb virgin chip cushion underlay with memory foam and antimicrobial protection to ensure comfortable support and longer wear for your carpet
Windows that work beautifully
The Low E energy windows throughout our homes are attractive, generously sized, and are designed with solar protection to keep the climate constant inside the home.
Higher ceilings for an airy atmosphere
We always design our homes to include 9-foot ceilings on the main floor (10 feet in our bungalows). That extra foot of headroom, coupled with a beautiful knock-down ceiling texture, creates a sense of comfortable spaciousness.
Safe and spacious stairways
The expansive feel of the stairway in an Albi home is no accident. Not only are our stairways wider than those in most homes, the treads of each step are deeper. Decorative newel posts, beautiful wood species, and wrought iron and/or wood spindles make every Albi staircase a conversation piece.
Fireplaces designed for cozy evenings
An elegant fireplace, with tiled flush hearth, adds to the home’s welcoming ambiance. And a wide choice of wood finishes and tile surrounds allow you to personalize the fireplace to your taste.
Exquisite interior woodwork
Baseboards and casings provide a beautiful finishing touch to every room. Albi customers can choose from two profiles, both of which include headers and plynth blocks, with up to 4-inch baseboards and 3½-inch window and door casings.
Decadent details, luxurious space
Albi ensuites are designed with decadence in mind. Among our favourite features are dual his-and-her vanities with full-width mirrors overtop. The tiled backsplash adds a polished look to the room.
Bathtubs you’ll never want to get out of
A generously sized soaker tub, with full-tile surround, sets the stage for a spa-like experience whenever the mood may strike.
Showers that stand out
Tiled base and walls and a 5-mil glass enclosure bring a clean, modern feel to the ensuite shower.
Tile, never vinyl
Tile flooring can be found in the bathrooms, mudroom and laundry room. Not only are tiles a more attractive option than vinyl or laminate flooring, they are incredibly durable and easy to maintain.

The Measure of Craftsmanship

Uncompromising Standards

For more than 30 years, Albi has brought an unwavering dedication to the art of homebuilding. We are passionate about crafting elegant, memorable homes that stand the test of time—and stand out among the rest. With this in mind, we use nothing but the highest quality materials and finishings. What might be considered an upgrade with other homebuilders is standard with Albi.


Steadfast Commitment

We’ve heard it many times from our customers over the years: there’s just something different about an Albi Home. A style, a refinement, a wonderful distinctiveness. We believe it stems from the joy we feel for our craft, and the care we bring to our work. At Albi, we are committed to excellence in everything we do. And it shows.


Thoughtful Details

We believe that all new homes should be thoughtfully planned and designed, crafted with unexpected details that please the eye and augment the feel and function of a living space. These types of special features are expertly built into every Albi project. We fill our homes with thoughtful touches that maximize luxury, quality and value.
