In the past year, every industry imaginable faced challenges of sorts. BC’s real estate market, in particular, anticipated a decline at the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis with an uncertainty of what would follow.
Nevertheless, by the end of 2020, home sales across the province were up by 35.6% when compared with figures reported in 2019. Coming into 2020, no developer could have anticipated such drastic fluctuations in the market or the resulting impact.
RC at CF Richmond Centre, a 27-acre master-planned community by Cadillac Fairview and SHAPE, launched during this unprecedented time, and the response the project received surpassed what the market thought was possible.
In the fall of 2020, more than 400 homes sold in just eight weeks, making it the most successful pre-sale launch in Metro Vancouver in over two years. Now, coming up on February 6, the release of 288 new homes in Towers Three and Four gives prospective homeowners another opportunity to get on the property ladder and be a part of the master plan.
“RC at CF Richmond Centre has the rare opportunity to create a new model for urban living. Its privileged location gives possibility to the highest level of urban design, and the result will be a complete community that redefines what it means to live your best life,” Tamara Tasaka, Director of Marketing at SHAPE, tells Daily Hive.
Built around CF Richmond Centre, one of Canada’s highest-performing shopping centres, RC at CF Richmond Centre is bringing shops, restaurants, public plazas (where seasonal celebrations will be held), and over 2,000 homes together in one community with an unmatched location in the heart of Richmond.
Already, CF Richmond Centre is home to world-class retailers like Apple, lululemon, Zara, Cactus Club, and Nike. “We’re adding 300,000+ sq ft of new shops and restaurants, including Richmond’s first outdoor retail high street,” says Tasaka.
In terms of connectivity, the first stop on the Canada Line, Richmond-Brighouse Station, is located on-site at RC at CF Richmond Centre, making it easy to access downtown Vancouver in 20 minutes. Additionally, YVR Airport is located just 10 minutes away from the community.
The homes and amenities at RC at CF Richmond Centre, Tasaka explains, are designed for simplicity, function, and timelessness. And the master plan has been meticulously engineered so that everything you need is an elevator ride away, from the shops and restaurants to over 73,000 sq ft of private amenities and Sky Gardens.
Covering 45,000 sq ft, the Sky Gardens seamlessly connect living and gathering spaces with the great outdoors. From here, future residents can take in views of the urban streetscape below or the coast mountains while working out or socializing.
“Everything is intentionally planned to make your life frictionless,” says Tasaka. “Across Metro Vancouver, RC at CF Richmond Centre will set a new standard for the ideal urban lifestyle.”
Tasaka adds, “Cadillac Fairview and SHAPE have invested over $1.5 billion to make this project a success over the long-term. Our buyers have recognized this commitment and invested alongside us in our vision.”
Before this month, the 21 new floor plans for Towers Three and Four at RC at CF Richmond Centre had never been seen by the public. Now, those who are interested in owning a home in Neighbourhood One of the master-planned community — set to become a centre point of the region — can register or schedule a viewing appointment.
To celebrate the Lunar New Year, from February 6 to 20, RC at CF Richmond Centre is running a Red Pocket Giveaway. Everyone who registers and makes a viewing appointment will have the option to choose a Red Pocket from their celebration tree. The tree will contain gift cards for CF Richmond Centre, valued at between $18 to $888. Those who purchase a home can then choose an additional red pocket from another tree containing gift cards valued between $888 and $2,888. This promotion is open only to registrants aged 19 or older.
