PORT MOODY SKYTRAIN CONDOS

History of the City

1800’s

Port Moody was first inhabited by the Coast Salish Nations people for over 9000 years. They built communities along the Southern Coast, including the Port Moody area. Eventually, Europeans settled in the area and upon landing were instructed to clear a trail from New Westminster to the Burrard Inlet. This is now the oldest road in the Lower Mainland and has been named “North Road.” The road was built in order to allow anchored ships to unload if New West was every attacked from the South, potentially by the United States. This would allow not only readily available military supplies, but soldiers to come and join the battle.

Port Moody dominated settlement with two events. First, the 1858 Gold rush in the Fraser Valley. With the help of this, and several other determining factors, Port Moody was said to have an “early moment of fame” when in 1879 they were officially named the Western Terminus to the Canadian Pacific Railway. Secondly, in 1886 Port Moody received the arrival of the first transcontinental train from Montreal. The train carried approximately 150 passengers on the 139 hour long trip.

Life was grand in Port Moody, but unfortunately it was short lived. Port Moody was on its way to becoming the biggest town in the West until the decision was made to extend the rail line to Vancouver around 1885. The city suffered and the population remain static at 250 inhabitants for nearly 20 years after losing their title from the railway.

 

1900’s

Things began picking up again in the 1900’s starting with the opening of a sawmill for Cedar cutting in 1905. This immediately created 125 jobs. Around the same time, some oil refineries opened their doors to allow for more employment opportunities. In 1913, Port Moody was incorporated as a City. Primarily a mill town, another large Imperial Oil Company was developed just outside the Port Moody Boundaries.

In the early 1920’s, Port Moody was still small but was steadily growing. If you were to walk around the town you would see mostly private homes with gardens. The town consisted of 5-6 general stores, 3 hotels, 2 gas stations, 1 elementary school, and 1 policeman. As a result, if there was a fire in the town all the residents were called to pitch in to extinguish it. Looking at what the city has become, it is hard to imagine it as such a small place.

World War II brought additional employment to Port Moody and after the war the town really hit its stride and began to expand geographically. Remaining the smallest of the Tri-Cities, Port Moody is bordered by Burnaby and Coquitlam. Now subject to countless advancements, Port Moody has developed into a beautiful city that was trademarked in 2004 as “The City of the Arts.”

2000’s

Port Moody is connected to other municipalities through Translink. Containing numerous bus routes is just the tip of the iceberg on public transportation in the city.  They are also a stopping point for the West Coast Express which runs from Downtown Vancouver to Mission. In 2016, the Evergreen Extension to the Millenium Line SkyTrain was also opened adding additional rapid transit services to the city. PORT MOODY SKYTRAIN CONDOS and townhomes began to impress potential buyers and the Real Estate market went wild. That is to say, this alluring city was a well-rounded all encompassing package. Moreover, the city offers Bike and Car sharing systems to decrease your carbon footprint and allow for car-free living.

Three Reasons Why Buying Near a SkyTrain Station is a Smart Move

 

1. Convenience

As we move towards a greener future, owning a car is becoming less and less necessary. We are seeing more and more people trade in their high insurance costs and lease payments for car share and a Translink Pass. For those who are willing to give up their car, the trade-off is usually that they want to be in close vicinity to the SkyTrain Station.

 

2. Resale & Rental Rates

Homes, Condos, and Presale Condos that are close to the SkyTrain station rent for more and sell for more, and rent quicker and sell quicker.

 

3. Supply vs. Demand

SkyTrain-Friendly Real Estate holds its value. As prices continue to increase, SkyTrain hubs become more and more desirable, and as demand builds, prices rise. Securing a piece of Real Estate in close walking distance to the SkyTrain station is a great way to mitigate risk in fluctuating markets.
