Lower Mainland still recording higher housing starts

Sales still strong despite HST repeal What does the repeal of the harmonized sales tax mean for homebuyers? Will the industry grind to a halt while people wait for the end of “the Hated Sales Tax”? Not according to Cristy Edmonds, VicePresident of Marketing for Fifth Avenue Marketing, who has noticed a huge jump in sales at Barber Creek Development’s Edgewater in South Surrey. “People are still moving forward,” she says. “For homes under $525,000, the difference between PST and HST is so minimal.” In fact, people who wait to buy a home under $525,000 will only save two per cent. “Are you going to put off (the purchase) to save two per cent? No,” Edmonds says. “We have done over 100 sales since the HST died,” she says. “Now is the time to buy.”

The harmonized sales tax was voted down by a referendum in August. At the time of the referendum, Greater Vancouver Homebuilders’ Association CEO Peter Simpson was concerned about the effect that the removal of the HST would have on home sales and renovation projects, saying that this would lower revenue for contractors. This has proven true in some areas. According to Simpson, builders in smaller centres like Kelowna who build two or three large homes a year are having trouble selling because consumers aren’t sure if they should wait to buy until the HST goes away. “The Lower Mainland is the only region in B.C. that is recording higher housing starts,” Simpson says. “Every other area is going the other way.”

‘There are no bad views’

Celadon an impressive sight in Coquitlam by Kerry Vital

The community of Windsor Gate in Coquitlam will soon welcome its newest addition, Celadon by Polygon Homes. The 27-storey tower is just minutes from Coquitlam Centre, and will feature exterior details such as custom metal grillwork and brick cladding. The architecture is inspired by the distinctive style of Frank Lloyd Wright, with sleek expanses of glass and an over-height lobby that will feature a beautiful stained glass panel that is currently on display in the presentation centre. Surrounded by the early phases of the community, you won’t have to go far to find everything you could possibly need. Past developments at Windsor Gate include Larkin House, Roycroft and Kensal Walk. “You get all the benefits of a masterplanned community,” says Polygon Vice-President of Marketing Goldie Alam. “It’s really feeling special here right now.” One of the most exciting things about Celadon is the huge amount of natural light that every suite will feature. It’s apparent from the show suite that the large windows and airy floorplans are tailor-made to harness every drop of sunlight, even in the sometimes-rainy Lower Mainland. Homeowners will never get tired of what is outside their window. “There are no bad views,” Alam says. You’ll be able to savour that view on your own private deck, standard in every home. The space is perfect for

a morning cup of coffee or a relaxing afternoon with a good book. The high-quality finishings that Polyon is known for are sprinkled everywhere. From the natural imported marble countertops and backsplashes in the bathrooms to the sleek undercabinet lighting in the kitchens, no detail has been overlooked. Impressive gourmet kitchens include smooth stone countertops, flat-panel custom cabinetry and large-format

porcelain tile flooring. Stainless-steel appliances are standard in every home, and a full-height glass tile backsplash contributes to the feeling of modern elegance. Plush nylon carpeting is featured throughout the living areas, which perfectly fits with whichever one of the three available colour schemes you choose. The ceilings are over eight feet tall (eight feet in the kitchen), meaning you’ll never feel cramped or squashed in any room. Your ensuite bathroom is made for luxury, with a soaker tub standard in every home and oversized vanity mirrors lit by recessed lighting. The cabinets are built to appear to float above the floor, and are complemented by polished chrome hardware. Even the doors are spectacular, with sliding or swinging patio doors onto the balcony and a contemporary solid wood entrance door that is outfitted with polished chrome hardware. More than 40 of the 187 twobedroom homes were sold over the

Suites range from approximately 758 to 1,002 square feet. Residents at Celadon will have access to a meeting room, lounge and a fitness studio, as well as Windsor Gate’s amenities building, the Nakoma Club. This 18,000-square-foot building holds a gym, screening room and an outdoor pool, as well as a meeting room and a basketball court.

Owners will receive a year’s worth of one-zone transit passes when they purchase their home. “It’s the best location in Coquitlam,” Alam says. “It’s a quiet little enclave.

Get your garden ready for (brrr) winter IN THE GARDEN Brian Minter There are things you can do for your flowers, lawns and trees to help them weather the winter

T

he cold, we weather is a sure sign that we’re in the middle of fall and winter isn’t far away. So now it’s time to winterize your garden. Some tips:

FLOWER GARDENS

Heavy rainfalls have taken their toll on many garden annuals and perennials. They will make great compost but removing them will leave your garden looking rather bare. Winter colour plants, set out now, will add new life and provide much needed colour to your winterscape. Strategically planting winter colour in groups with contrasting blocks of bright colours, like yellow with more pastel shades, creates the most pleasing effect. Groupings of hardy ‘Red Bor’ and ‘Winter Bor’ kale, winter heather, violas, pansies and bright evergreen foliaged perennials, placed here and there in your garden and close to your walkways, will give a tremendous lift to your winter garden. It is still the ideal time to plant your fall bulbs. Plant them in well-drained soil at a depth of three times the diameter of the bulb. Plant bulbs in groupings for the most pleasing effect. With proper planning, you can time your bulbs to bloom in sequence from January through June. I’m a big fan of botanical or species bulbs that naturalize easily and come back each year with an even more impressive display. Make sure you have at least a few alliums for a great summer show in eight months time. It’s the last call for lifting and protecting summer bulbs. Gladiola corms and begonia tubers should have been lifted by now and they must be kept warm at about 15°C. It is also the time to lift dahlia and canna tubers.

VEGETABLE GARDENS

Many late vegetables can stay in the garden for winter harvesting. These include turnips, parsnips, Brussels sprouts, Swiss chard and the new series of winter vegetables. If you do not have proper vegetable storage, you can place a thick mulch of bark over your root crops and leave them in the ground as long as possible. Fall is a great time to add existing compost to your garden and there is still time to plant Garden Rejuvenation Mix for invaluable green manure in the spring. Speaking of compost, make sure you

take full advantage of all the leaves, old annuals and vegetable stems by composting them over the winter. You might also wish to add more sand to your vegetable garden to improve the drainage next year. Applying lime is important now too, except of course where you are going to grow potatoes.

LAWNS

Cut your lawns quite low (1 inch) one more time to allow more air circulation in and around the root systems. This can prevent many disease problems. To prevent moss from taking over your lawn, maintain a high level of nutrients by applying a controlled-release, high nitrogen fertilizer, something like Scott’s Turfbuilder Wintercare 30-0-9 and by applying prilled lime at the rate of 10 kilograms per 2000 square feet to prevent acidic soil. It is too late now to seed new lawns, but aerating and sanding now would sure make a huge difference.

TREES & SHRUBS

Now is the best time to plant most evergreens, fruit trees and shade trees. They are becoming dormant and, once planted, they will immediately form new roots. By spring, they will have well established root systems. Some points to remember: The quality of the soil in which you plant your new trees will determine how well your trees grow. Work in plenty of fine bark mulch to open up and provide good drainage in our heavy clay soils. If your trees are in burlap sacks, you should leave the sack on the rootball — it’s holding all those roots together! Bare-root trees can be safely planted now. They will make new roots, getting them off to a great start come spring. If you use a liquid starter, your trees will get a faster start. Evergreen hedges, planted now, will provide a good windbreak for cold winter winds, thereby helping to keep your fuel bill down. Hedges will also give you privacy and at the same time, beautify your home. So all things considered, an evergreen hedge is an excellent investment. Many fall flowering trees and shrubs can be planted now to provide winter beauty. These include viburnum ‘Pink Dawn’, autumn flowering cherries, Chinese witch hazel ornamental grasses, jasmine and the many varieties of berried plants to name just a few. It is critical that you begin organic dormant spraying with ‘Green Earth Lime Sulphur’ and ‘Dormant Oil’ in mid-November to control insects and diseases that overwinter in your trees. We are now entering a brand new season and it is so nice to have our lawns and gardens in shape for the coolest and wettest time of the year. The addition of winter colour is a pure bonus — one you will appreciate more and more as winter progresses.
