Concord Brentwood Phase 2 – COMING SOON!

A city that was once considered to be falling behind its neighbour to the west, the recent announcement of Concord Brentwood Phase 2 Presale is turning heads all over Canada, in the Real Estate Development community and with potential home buyers. This newly announced Master Planned Community features a minimum of 8 Residential Towers nestled in over 13 acres of green space.

 

Concord Brentwood Phase 2 Presale – Village Central

Village Central is designed to enhance your urban lifestyle through proximity to nature. Architect Mr James K.M. Cheng achieves this by designing the two towers to perch above the treeline, creating open, airy space below for a stunning motor court and plush greenery for residents and visitors to enjoy. Also included in the development is a water softening system; this technology reduces mineral count within the water to ensure the greatest level of efficiency of your appliances and prevents clogs in faucets and reduces scale buildup within bathrooms. Lastly, Concord will be including Electric Vehicle Charging stations in each Residential Parking Spot; ensuring that the new community is environmentally sustainable.

Brentwood Centre

Located within a 5-minute walk from Brentwood Sky Train to most of Metro Vancouver within 60 minutes on Rapid Transit. Boasting an 18-minute Sky-Train ride to Downtown Vancouver, 8 minutes to Lougheed Town Centre, 31 minutes to UBC, 15 minutes to Metrotown, 47 minutes to Aberdeen Centre, and 55 Minutes to Vancouver International Airport. You can get anywhere in Vancouver without pulling your vehicle out of the garage.

Bringing Yaletown to Burnaby

This Master Plan hopes to bring “Yaletown to Burnaby;” however, from the plans and talk alone we believe that it blows Yaletown out of the water! This community will boast 13 acres of park and green space which makes up for nearly 40% of the total development site – that’s a big back yard! Included in the Urban Park will be open field space, seating areas, children’s play area, water features, and a proposed elementary school to be located on the east side of the park.

Concord Brentwood Amenities and Lifestyle

If outside recreational time isn’t for you, Concord has that covered as the amenities in Hillside West & East (Phase 1) are plentiful. Included in the first phase is a Yoga Studio, Fitness Centre, Concierge, Theatre Room, Music Room, Pet Grooming Room, Study Area, Lounge, Games Room, and Two Roof Terraces. That isn’t enough this Master Planned community; each phase consists of additional amenities that will guarantee that you will no longer require any further memberships for fitness activities. Phase 2, entitled “Village Central” will include two residential towers with the addition of a podium will also include, retail outlets that will include an urban market, restaurants, cafes, and other service orientated retailers. Also built in this phase will be the Super Club; a fitness and activity centre that is boasting an indoor/outdoor pool, indoor sports court, bowling alley, and much more.

The SkyTrain Living Lifestyle – Four Factors That Make SkyTrain Living Unbeatable

The average rent for a one bedroom in Vancouver as per the Canadian Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) this month was pegged at $1750.00. That is a lot of money, and we hope you’re getting at least that! If you have an investment property and it’s already getting that it could be down to a couple of the following contributing factors. In this blog, we will outline four factors that contribute to why people pay more to live The SkyTrain Living Lifestyle.

What is the SkyTrain Living Lifestyle?

First of, if you are on this site, you believe in the power of purchasing property near the Sky Train but you do not understand why people want to live close to the system? Let’s outline four factors that we believe contribute to this trend:

 

Walkability

Houses, Townhouses, and Apartments whether in newer buildings or older buildings will always have the highest Walk Score when located within Rapid Transit corridors. What is a Walk Score and why does it matter? It is a number that uses an algorithm that incorporates the subject property address, and it’s proximity to restaurants, grocery stores, bars, transit, and other services. The equation produces a “Walk Score” out of 100. 100 being highly walkable or a “Walkers Paradise” and 0 being, well, the worst. Important because the higher the Walk Score, the more tenants will want to rent or buy your property for not only the transit factor but also the walkability one.

The Car-Free Lifestyle

This new lifestyle trend that s touted by the Municipal governments, environmentalists and health nuts alike is a growing trend that you can catch through savvy investing and marketing. This trend is seeing many people give up the gridlock in favour for bicycling, transit, and car shares. If this trend continues – it’s showing no signs of slowing down – anyone who has invested in Sky Train condos will not only see their property values grow faster, but they’ll also see the greatest rise in rental rates combined with a low vacancy rate.

Young People Are Not Driving

Yes, this is a thing! In the Metro Vancouver, there is a growing trend of 16-20-year-olds not getting their driving licences. That means in the next five to ten years these individuals will be your tenants and they will not have cars! They want to be close to the Sky Train so they can get where they need to go without the expense of car ownership. Much like the internet, this is the growing trend, and if you’re not investing in Real Estate with this trend in mind you are making a mistake.

Traffic in Metro Vancouver is the Worst

Not going into detail on this one but we just replaced our horn.

 History of Yaletown

As like the rest of Vancouver, Yaletown was heavily influenced by the Canadian Pacific Railway. By the year 1880 the line had reached the large town of Yale, then the former centre of the Fraser Canyon Gold Rush. As the line expanded, the residents of Yale moved with it to what would eventually be known as Yaletown. These modest homes were converted into industrial centres due to the proximity to False Creek and the Railway. As time went on and Globalization took its effect, Expo86 came to Vancouver and kick started  the real estate boom of the 20th century. After industry left the area, the land was contaminated and bought by the city. Opening the door for the eventual redevelopment. The site, purchased by the city, eventually sold to Hong Kong based developer Li Ka-Shing which set in motion what is Yaletown today.

Finishes

This new development By Boffo Developments will be like no other. Offering an attention to detail in one of downtown Vancouver is most desired locations.
