By now you’ve probably heard of The Smithe. Coming this fall — by Boffo. On the cusp of Yaletown — it brings the entertainment and arts district together. Boffo has always been known for its attention to detail, designer homes and The Smithe will be no exception. Luxury finishings and location give these condos dream status.
Sitting at the corner of Smithe & Cambie, this unique development offers 2 & 3 bedroom residences for just 91 homes including seven Penthouse residences w/ private rooftop decks that will overlook the city. The location is truly a unique offering and one of the few remaining in this part of the city. Please call me for a private viewing of The Smithe.

This whole neighborhood’s re-development is close to my heart and incredibly exciting for me to see. It is where I grew up, went to school and it is now starting a complete transformation! Shape Properties will transform over 40 acres, including 23 new high rise towers, new shopping, restaurants and community-oriented neighbourhoods to come. It is also home to the most connected SkyTrain hub in Metro Vancouver. Prices starting at $349k.
Minutes from Simon Fraser University, and steps to where the Millennium and Evergreen SkyTrain lines meet, this location is central and features lush green spaces. Local shops and restaurants will be found throughout and be within walking distance of all the main towers. Please call me for a private viewing of The City of Lougheed’s presentation centre and designer show homes.
Are you looking for absolute luxury in a stunning location? Well, 8X On The Park is waiting for you. This new development is overlooking Emery Barnes Park in Yaletown. All in a single Saturday, you can enjoy a relaxing breakfast heightened by the views from your balcony and a leisurely stroll in the neighbourhood perusing local boutiques for a stunning outfit for dinner and vibrant night out on the town.
This gorgeous development features open-concept livings spaces full of modern furnishings and unique features like state-of-the-art integrated electronics. SkyLounge is certainly one of the highlights at 8X on the park, where the penthouse is reserved for everyone.

Downtown living has so much to offer. And now it has even more with Brenhill's newest development. Sustainable design, naturally lit open spaces and luxury finishings make 8X On The Park one of the best.
There are still fantastic floorplans available. At an average of approximately $1300 per square foot, it is well priced considering the high-end finishings and condos sold in older buildings in the area. Please call me to arrange a private viewing.
One Pacific is a new condo development in Downtown Vancouver’s Yaletown neighborhood by Concord Pacific. The project will be a concrete tower located in the parking lots that are bisected by the Cambie Street bridge off ramps, just West of BC Place Stadium.
Originally the project was supposed to be called Panorama, but senior leadership didn’t like the name and went with One Pacific as the project is basically one block from everything great in Yaletown.
We are expecting to see a mix of 1 and 2 bedroom suites with about 150 suites available for less than $350K. Expect all the suites to have either air-conditioning or air-cooling. Which is a unique feature in Vancouver.
Estimated 2016 Completion Date
Air Conditioning or Air Cooling
45,000 sf of commercial space on 2 levels with the lower street level to possibly have a Starbucks and the upper level to have a fitness/gym type business.
Possibly linear kitchens
Higher-end finishing’s & “smart” finishes available
Presales of this new Concord Pacific development are expected to start in June of 2013.
Please note that I have early VIP access to this project allowing you to purchase before the general public. Please call me at 604.626.5103 for more details!
An iconic new development is scheduled to break ground in the heart Downtown Vancouver, check out the new Telus headquarters.
"Set for completion by 2014, Architect Gregory Henriquez and Westbank Corp. developer Ian Gillespie; the team behind the Woodward’s Building, have joined forces again to build Telus Garden which is set to occupy a city block between Robson, Seymour, Georgia and Richards.
Once complete, Telus's new headquarters will be unique in North America, featuring 10,000 square feet of green roofs providing organic produce for local restaurants, two elevated roof forests, British Columbia artwork, LED lighting on the western façade projecting programmable coloured images on to fritted glass, and media walls where cultural events such as symphony concerts can be broadcast to the public.
The $750-million plan is to build a total of one million square feet, comprised of a 22-storey office tower and a 46-storey residential tower. For the office tower, there are plans for three interior sky gardens high up, cantilevered out over the street, as well as a public plaza at street level. There will be 450 residential units and cutting-edge green technology, such as a geothermal heat exchange that taps heat from the existing hub of Telus circuits."

I recently leaned about the Downtown Street Car Project and thought it would be something interesting to share with you. Would be very happy to see this concept progress; it would most certainly make getting around the city easier when driving is out of the question. Also a smart addition to the city's "green" agenda!
"The success of last year's Olympic Line demonstration has reaffirmed the City's commitment to the Downtown Streetcar Project. There is more work to be done, including coordination with the City's highest transit priority - the UBC Line Rapid Transit study on Broadway. In the meantime, the City will continue to safeguard right-of-way for the future development of the Downtown Streetcar and look for opportunities to move the project forward."
It's about time! While spending the day n Coquitlam yesterday I was thrilled to see a new development announced along the Austin Corridor.
This new project called The Austin is being built by the highly respected Beedie Group and will bring well needed revitalization to the area. Pearched atop a hill, it will no doubt be home to stunning views in every direction, Downtown to Mount Baker.
" The neighbourhood of Austin Heights, has long been a favourite place to lay down roots. Its border with Burnaby, and its proximity to Lougheed Mall, Simon Fraser University and Highway 1 make it a central hub. Yet it still feels tucked away, more peaceful, in the sort of neighbourhood where people spend time walking their dogs and enjoying the outdoors.
Set in this established West Coquitlam neighbourhood, 1-bedroom homes will be priced from the low $200s and 2-bedrooms will start from the mid $300s."
A great video; never park your car again! Yes please!
