It’s hard not to love the character and charm of South Vancouver. As one of our city’s most culturally diverse neighbourhoods, it not only reflects where we’ve come from, but also where we’re headed.
The Fraser Commons development is part of a significant mixed-use project designed to bring modern city living to Vancouver’s south end. Built at the intersection of Fraser Street and Southeast Marine Drive, this new community is aimed at introducing a contemporary atmosphere into the heart of this well-established neighbourhood.
One of the many goals of Fraser Commons is to create a community within a community by providing families, couples, and young professionals with a place to seek out the urban lifestyle that they’re looking for.
The development is made up of four beautifully-designed buildings, ranging from five to 21 storeys, and holds 363 houses consisting of one, two, and three-bedroom homes.
Each home is thoughtfully designed, optimizing natural lighting with a large open balcony and oversize windows. The interior of each unit has also been built to maximize storage and living space, ensuring a beautiful yet functional space for all residents. The beauty of each building’s sleek exterior matches that of the Fraser River shoreline, encouraging residents to feel even more connected to their surroundings.
Every unit boasts a sophisticated layout crafted by Cristina Oberti Interior Design, beginning with premium Bosch appliances in the kitchen and ending with floating vanities and luxurious soaker tubs in the bathroom. And the customization options are endless. Homeowners can choose from two different colour schemes (‘Fraser’ and ‘Marine’) that include elegant light fixtures, lacquer finishes, laminate flooring, quartz countertops, imported European cabinetry, and detailed accents that make each space feel modern and cozy.
As a member of the Fraser Commons community, residents have access to plenty of amenities that promote a healthy and active lifestyle. Tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the street is a half-acre area of green space called the ‘commons’ that essentially functions as a private backyard for the development — so whether you’re out for a walk, looking for a reading spot or simply enjoying your morning coffee, you can do so in the beauty of the great outdoors.
Homeowners are also given unlimited access to bike storage, a fitness centre, and a stunning rooftop terrace and BBQ area complete with gardens, greenery, and plenty of seating. Kids can enjoy the freedom of a 4,700 square ft. daycare with a gorgeous outdoor play area and parents can kick back in the multipurpose common room outfitted with a kitchen for entertaining guests.
At the street level, there are a variety of shops, cafés, office spaces, gardens, and retail outlets that give life at Fraser Commons a level of convenience that goes above and beyond. Plus, the homes are only steps away from the Marine Gateway SkyTrain Station, putting the entire city at your fingertips.
Fraser Commons is more than just another development. It’s an affordable option for those building their lives in the greater Vancouver area who want to be connected to all of the amazing things that us Vancouverites love about our city.
Here you’ll find both a sense of community away from the rush of downtown and the comfort of coming home to a space that is uniquely — and beautifully — yours.
