New Developments in New Westminster.

New Westminster is becoming a bustling city centre for those looking for modern Vancouver convenience with a historic Victorian feel…and here are some great new developments that are coming up.
 BrickStone Walk Two: Townhomes from $189,900 to $449,900.  Nu-Gen Projects Ltd. introduces BrickStone Walk 2, a fresh Townhome concept in New Westminster. With 5,000 sq.ft. of beautifully landscaped courtyard and the convenience of  city living surrounded by a serene suburban feel. The Townhomes combine the rich heritage of the Royal City with the modern convenience you want in your home.
NorthBank: Ballenas Project Management brings modern Condo & Townhomes starting at $261,900.  Along the riverfront in the geographic centre of Metro Vancouver is New Westminster – a progressive city packed with urban conveniences and touches of Victorian charm. Standing proud on the terraced hilltop gives every Northbank home long, significant views – from the tranquil Fraser River to the distant snow-capped mountain ranges.
Trapp + Holbrook: 100 Condos under $299,900. One of the tallest buildings on Columbia Street during the Edwardian Era, the Trapp block formerly housed a warehouse and offices. Additions in 1913 offered a striking new facade with unique windows and handsome terra cotta tiles. The adjacent Holbrook building, a hotel and saloon, was constructed in the 1880s and rebuilt in brick, after the great fire of 1898. Today, the Trapp and Holbrook blocks remain as much of a landmark in the fabric of New Westminster’s historic district today as they did over 100 years ago. The historic Downtown district is evolving with the transformation of the Trapp and Holbrook blocks. This is the next great urban opportunity.
Elliot Street: Elliot Street is the most attainable concrete product in the Lower Mainland. With the Best Value in Metro Vancouver starting at just $159,900! Elliot Street Blog Post.
The Dominion: Ledingham McAllister is proud to introduce Dominion, our latest collection of residences coming soon to 6th and Royal in New Westminster.  Ledingham McAllister continues its tradition of building the lower mainland.
New Westminster Civic Centre: The civic centre will include a 350-seat theatre with flexible seating to accommodate a variety of productions, conference/ meeting space, art studios, an art gallery, tourist information centre, The City Museum & Archives, and The Canadian Lacrosse Hall of Fame.
Uptown and Fraiserview:
The Viceroy: Viceroy Condos is a new condo and townhouse project by Bosa Properties Inc. and BlueSky Properties currently under construction at Belmont St in New Westminster. The project is scheduled for completion in 2014. Available condos/townhouses range in price from $289,900 to over $563,900. The project has a total of 188 units.
Victoria Hill: Victoria Hill is New Westminster’s most exclusive new community.  A blend of distinctive yet cohesive neighbourhoods including landmark towers, townhomes, low-rise residences, and communal shops & services. A private paradise for a privileged few.
This master planned community includes The Grove, Whittaker, Parkside, Carlyle, Glenbrooke, Victoria Hill Lowrises,  Victoria Hill Luxury Highrise Residences, and Future Phases as well.
As always if you have any questions about the New Developments or New Westminster Real Estate give us a call!

Victoria Hill Parking Info

ONNI’s master planned community Victoria Hill has become so popular they are running out of space for parking.  This sub-area is becoming quite tricky to find parking in as more developments are constructed and more people moving in.  The City has requested ONNI brainstorm ideas to add more parking for residents and those visiting, and ONNI has come up with 3 ideas that they will further investigate.

At first it was proposed to build another level of underground parking but this would be financially unable as it would cost up to $1 million dollars.  City Council has suggested a small parcel of land between 2 of the developments that would add an extra 15 stalls.
ONNI is also in the works to develop a 6-storey building that will have some much needed rental units available. However with the proposed 100 Market and 93 off-market rental housing units that will add to the parking’s already cramped conditions.
New Westminster Leader: New Westminster Council pushes ONNI to increase rental parking
New Westminster Leader: Six-storey rental building proposed to Victoria Hill
