A look inside North Vancouver’s newest rental homes (PHOTOS)
North Vancouver is one of the most astoundingly beautiful places in the Lower Mainland. It’s a city offering residents direct access to the great outdoors year-round, whether their passions lie with downhill skiing, mountain biking, kayaking, or hiking through lush forest.
Since most of us are spending more time at home these days, we’re looking for every opportunity to immerse ourselves in nature. When you live in North Vancouver and have world-class terrain just beyond your doorstep, this can easily become a bigger part of your wellness ritual.
Renters who are ready to upgrade their lifestyles can now consider the latest rental apartments to launch in North Vancouver as their base. Enter, The Royals — a brand-new community of studios, one-, two-, and three-bedroom homes within two towers in Central Lonsdale.
Last summer, Tower 1 launched in the market, and today, it’s over 70% rented. Tower 2 is now complete, and it’s home to enviable amenities, available to residents of both towers.
But one of the first things to note is that these aren’t your typical rental apartments; they’re condominium-quality, concrete homes — many with spectacular mountain, water, and city views. Both towers are professionally managed by a resident caretaker, which offers peace of mind should you ever have any problems.
Additionally, The Royals are purpose-built rental buildings, so you’ll enjoy the security of knowing that your home is yours until you decide to make a move. Besides, after you get acquainted with your new neighbourhood, you may instantly picture yourself living there for longer.
With a walk score of 93 and conveniences like Whole Foods just one block away, staying active and on track with your meal planning (and at-home dining) goals takes a little less time and planning.
From the moment you step inside your home at The Royals, there’s an instant sense of calm with a natural backdrop before you. All homes have been fitted with modern finishes, solid surface countertops, and stainless-steel appliance packages, making it effortless to settle in.
Beneath your feet, there’s wood-look laminate flooring, and on the windows, roller blinds create a minimal look. There are even black-out blinds in all bedrooms.
Doing your laundry will feel like less of a chore, too, with an in-suite washer and dryer at your disposal.
Current (and soon-to-be) outdoor adventure enthusiasts don’t have to worry about finding a home for their skis, snowboards, and bikes either because storage is abundant at The Royals.
Planning to move in with your furry friend? Even better. All homes at The Royals are pet-friendly. You’ll also find a dog run and a dog wash area on site.
In terms of pricing per month, one-bedrooms start at $1,925, two-bedrooms from $2,745, and three-bedrooms from $3,550. All homes feature a private balcony and/or terrace based on the layout, giving future residents another reason to get outside and take in the North Shore’s majestic mountain views.
Over the past year, we’ve all come to realize that where we live can have a huge impact on our day-to-day, especially if we’re working (and working out) at home.
The Royals has over 8,000 sq ft of lifestyle-enhancing amenities that leave residents feeling as though they belong to an exclusive club. This starts with Club Royals, situated 23-storeys above Central Lonsdale.
As a penthouse-level amenity space covering 3,300 sq ft, it’s the perfect place to warm up by the fireplace or prepare a meal in the party room with a chef’s kitchen.
There’s also a fully-equipped gym (including Peloton bikes), a media room with a sports lounge vibe, and a study room for those moments when you want to really focus on projects in a quiet space.
On the rooftop of Tower 2, one level higher in the building, residents have access to a 5,000 sq ft Signature Rooftop Terrace. Here, you’ll find everything from an outdoor kitchen to a fire pit, BBQs, a children’s play area, lounge areas, and garden plots.
Savour serene views of the water, the mountains, and the city from the terrace while you escape the bustle in a safe space. If you have friends or family visiting from out of town in the future, there are two fully-furnished guest suites where they can stay.
The Royals isn’t just a place to live; it’s a future-forward community designed to enhance the rental experience for all residents. To book your private tour today, visit theroyalsrentals.com.
