In this market, housing in our price range conjures up images of orange shag carpets and faux wood panelling. It’s affordable, yes, but it’s not pretty. Other options may be nicer – new condos with bright, open interiors – but they are miles away from the city. You need a car to get anywhere, and a commute into Vancouver is near torture.
Now, future homeowners don’t have to sacrifice lifestyle or location in order to get something affordable. The Columbia in New Westminster’s master-planned community, The Brewery District, offers the best of both.
Starting at $289,900, The Columbia is the perfect intersection of style, location, and price. Only steps from the Sapperton SkyTrain Station in New West, the new development is connected to all the amenities of Downtown Vancouver by less than half an hour of transit. It’s also less than half an hour to the Vancouver airport, and only five minutes to Highway 1.
But the great location isn’t just about where you can travel, it’s also about what you don’t have to travel to get. The Brewery District is home to a grocery store, restaurants, a pharmacy, a pilates studio, and coffee shops – and you don’t even have to walk a block or cross the street. It’s all right there. The greater Brewery District neighbourhood even boasts two elementary schools and a high school close by, as well as outdoor parks.
It seems too good to be true that you could own a gorgeous condo in a well-designed community and still have it at an affordable price – but it’s not.
It’s the details that set The Columbia apart: the condos were developed with the belief that design with purpose can improve your daily life. The details in each condo differ depending on the size – one bedroom condos have a custom, built-in dining table, while larger homes feature over-sized kitchen islands. Each one comes with high-quality KitchenAid appliances and comes in two different colour schemes.
The Columbia offers condos in a range of styles to fit your lifestyle. From a 515 square foot one-bedroom to an over 1,000 square foot three-bedroom, there’s something for every buyer – whether you’re downsizing, upsizing, or just getting into the market.
The Columbia isn’t available for sale yet, but if you’re interested in the development, visit the sales centre at 285 Nelson’s Court for a preview between noon and 5 pm every day. Or register for updates, and get early buyer opportunities and invitations to special events.
If registering is too much pressure, you can also follow The Columbia on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram – but a development with this design, this price, and this location won’t be available for long.
