As soon as you enter the Metro Vancouver city of New Westminster, you can feel the difference.
As the oldest city in Western Canada, New West has a long, rich history. And today, the city’s historic charm meets distinctive metropolitan qualities in a way that makes it a beautiful place to live.
Soon you’ll be able to experience the essence of the old and new world city for yourself at the newest 33-storey mixed-use development: 618 Carnarvon by Skyllen Pacific Development. Situated in the heart of the city’s entertainment and cultural district on the corner of Sixth and Carnarvon, you can enjoy the best of both worlds living here.
Here’s why 618 Carnarvon could be exactly what you’ve been searching for.
Your dream home has got to tick all of the boxes before you even consider investing in it, and location is always at the top of the list. Living at 618 Carnarvon allows you to immerse yourself in the city’s cultural district, and easily access other areas of Metro Vancouver when you need to.
The development is situated between two SkyTrain stations: New Westminster and Columbia Station (both a five-minute walk away). And it takes just 25 minutes to get to downtown Vancouver.
Driving to Burnaby’s Metrotown and Guildford Town Centre in Surrey only takes 15 minutes. Not to mention, New West is a home zone for Evo, as well as on-site Zipcar locations which make commuting even more convenient!
“Inside our lot, we’ll have dedicated car-sharing spaces, which means you’ll be able to peacefully go on your trip without having to worry about where you’ll drop the car off. It’ll give residents the convenience of owning a car without having to worry about the extra expense of actually maintaining one,” says Han Wang, Skyllen’s president.
Designed by GBL Architects, each of the 262 suites at 618 Carnarvon offer beautiful views of the surrounding historic and cosmopolitan city of New West. You’ll feel right at home with bright and spacious interiors designed by Portico Design Group, which are complemented by 8’11 ft ceilings and air conditioning. (AC in Vancouver? It’s actually possible.)
You’ll also have access to over 30,000 sq. ft. of outdoor garden space, a residents-only gym, and a guest suite where any of your friends or family staying overnight can rest. Not home when your delivery arrives? No problem, you can pick it up from the parcel room instead of having to go to the post office. Simply amazing.
Surrounded by quintessential conveniences, 618 Carnarvon is minutes from grocery stores, pharmacies, restaurants and coffee shops, banks, fitness studios, spas and salons, and entertainment options.
“Because we aren’t on the strip, 618 Carnarvon is like an escape within the city,” says Wang. “You have moments of peace while being in the centre of New West, and that’s rare to say about any development. It’s a very diverse, vibrant atmosphere.”
Outdoor enthusiasts, you’ll be thrilled to know that the area has a walkability score of 96 to 97, according to index Walk Score. There’s also the recently revitalized Westminster Pier Park filled with green and gathering spaces.
“The Park hosts many free events as well as free yoga classes in the summer. It’s always packed and that encourages people to not only live an active lifestyle but also become part of this rich community,” Wang adds.
