I went to the agent's preview yesterday at the new project called 2nd and Commercial, (just west of Commercial) by NOW (New Original Works) Developers. At first glance, the construction mess was horrible, but then, as I walked the the dirt and the number of surprisingly friendly construction workers, I was greeted to a bright (and clean) presentation center.
"2nd and Commercial continues NOW Developments’ goal of producing modest, modern, carefully designed infill projects that comfortably blend into existing neighbourhoods. Refined, thoughtful living in a diverse and storied Vancouver community. At 2nd & Commercial, a sense of tranquility pervades, yet the vibrancy of colourful Commercial Drive is just outside your front door" http://2ndandcommercial.ca/
They only had one floor plan available to view, plan C2 which is a 2 bdrm and flex with a 538 sq ft wrap around balcony. What I liked most about the suite were the high ceilings; bright and open living/dining/living room areas; the unique white washed oak laminate flooring and the stunning kitchen with stainless steel appliances and the gorgeous ceaserstone countertops. Very clean and modern feeling throughout. I also appreciated the fact that this will be a GREEN building, and will be a LEED Gold Certified building, something which is of real importance to many consumers these days, especially in Vancouver. Here is the floor plan I saw....
The neighbourhood is fantastic! Shops, restaurants, cafe's, unique stores, schools, community center, transit add so on, everything you need just a hop and a skip away :- )
Public sales on this development start soon. Deposit is less than 15%, Based off the way construction is going, it appears that the building will be move in ready by February 2014 (or hopefully sooner). I have all the floor plans, and the features list and starting pricing available. Please give me a call if you would like more information or would like to get into a private viewing prior to the public grand opening. There are only 21 unique homes for sale and based off what I saw, will sell quick!
Have a great day! Colleen Gray / 604.619.1496 / firstname.lastname@example.org
