Choosing where you want to settle down in Vancouver can be a daunting task when you don’t know where to look.
Living close to downtown is high on your checklist, but you need to find somewhere with a variety that suits your lifestyle. And now, there’s a new development coming to the Marpole neighbourhood that can give you the life that you desire, without compromise.
It’s all happening at 8888 Osler. The development is currently underway at a location best described as the hidden gem of the Westside. When completed, it will be home to a six-storey boutique collection of 76 residences – with prices starting in the mid-$500,000s, a rarity for Vancouver Westside homes.
Marpole offers you so much more than just a Westside address with a fresh personality, it offers a new way of life. If you’re intrigued to know more, here are five perks that come with living here.
Boutique home living
Marpole has everything you need to live the ultimate Vancouver lifestyle close to the city. A stunning collection of studios, one, two, and three-bedroom homes, will fill 8888 Osler, the new generation of the Westside.
There’s an urban minimalism conveyed throughout the features and finishes of these homes that you’ll instantly fall in love with. You’ll get to choose between two beautiful colour palettes – Oak and Arthur, in a home that’s filled with laminate flooring throughout, roller blinds, kitchens with European Bosch appliances, porcelain tile backsplash, and quartz countertops.
Let’s not forget about the custom millwork shelving in the bathroom for added storage. Select homes even have an integrated, multi-purpose kitchen island and retractable glass walls on balconies that seamlessly open the space up to the outdoors.
There’s also going to be a roof deck garden space located in the back of the building where you’ll want to spend most of the summer months. It’s somewhere you can connect with your neighbours at community garden plots, dining spaces, and a kids area.
Two communities at your doorstep
Location is key when you’re choosing where you want to live in Vancouver. Marpole offers the best of both worlds. You’re not surrounded by the noise of the concrete jungle 24/7, but if you need to get downtown, you can get there in less than 25 minutes via transit. This new development gives you the feel of living in two cities as it will be located within close proximity to the communities of Vancouver and Richmond. And it’s also close enough to the Cambie Corridor and Marine Gateway. It’s ideal.
There are always going to be days when you’d rather eat out than cook at home. That’s where the beauty of living less than a 10-minute drive from several restaurants is a true gift. White Spot, Milltown Bar & Grill, Wicks Café, Cravings Restaurant and Sports Bar, Thai Son, Ikura Sushi, and Café de L’Orangie, are all located close to 8888 Osler meaning you have a wealth of delicious options to choose between for date night.
Living at 8888 Osler means that you’ll get to immerse yourself in the city’s vast history in the heart of the Musqueam territory. The site was previously the Hudson’s Landing Pub and parking lot. That’s something you’ll be able to tell the grandkids!
All the amenities
It’s important that you have everything you need in your local area; shopping, entertainment options, as well as health and fitness centres. You’ll find all of the aforementioned and more at 8888 Osler with a T&T Supermarket, Shoppers Drug Mart, Cineplex Cinemas, Winners, Steve Nash Fitness World, Costco, McArthur Glen Designer Outlet, and River Rock Casino, all close to your new home.
