RCH turns 150 Grant Granger
Cheryl Rohachuk (née Harrop), manager of health services at Royal Columbian Hospital, graduated from RCH’s school of nursing in 1978, the last class from the school. Rohahuck has worked at the hospital, which celebrates its 150th anniversary on Sunday.
A lasting link to Royal Columbian RCH health manager has long history with hospital Grant Granger
Royal Columbian Hospital celebrates 150 years on Sunday, and Cheryl Rohachuk—and many of her family members—have had a close tie to the facility for the last 40 of those years. In the early 1970s, Rohachuk’s father George Harrop had a fair bit of heart trouble. Not serious enough for surgery, but enough to require frequent visits
to Royal Columbian. She remembers often being there in the room as a nurse encouraged her father to change his lifestyle choices, but Rohachuk says for him it was too late. But an incident during that time had a profound impact on her. She recalls witnessing another patient have a coronary attack. “The team came crashing in the room. When I saw the [cardiac care nurse] teaching my father and then the next minute transitioning into an emergency room situation there was a whole new set of actions
taking place. It was fascinating to me and it clicked into me about wanting to be part of a team like that.” So when she graduated from Burnaby South in 1973 she had “a very clear decision about my path.” Rohachuk asked one of the nurses how she could get her foot in the door, and she suggested working in the hospital kitchen. Her assignment was to deliver evening nourishment to the patients. That led to her entering Royal Columbian’s three-year nursing program, moving into the nurse’s

residence in what is now the Sherbrooke Building that houses administrative offices. Little did she know when she signed up she was going to be part of the school’s final graduating class in 1978, with the province transferring the training to postsecondary institutions. She was sad to see the change because having the nursing school connected to the hospital meant they received a lot more clinical training.

Amongst the mud, shops and shacks of New Westminster during the city’s embryonic stages, Royal Columbian Hospital was born on Oct. 7, 1862. There was no place in the colony of British Columbia to serve the medical needs of those that couldn’t afford to be treated by a doctor at home. Hospitals, 150 years ago, were for the “indigent,” those with little money and no family or friends to take care of them. Local leaders went to other communities in the colony, such as Lytton and Yale, seeking contributions, says local historian Dale Miller, who has spent the year doing a 150th anniversary blog chronicling Royal Columbian’s past (rch150.wordpress. com). The result was a two-ward, 30-bed facility at what is now Agnes and Fourth streets. In those days, Royal meant public, and Columbian referred to the colony. The patients were all men. It’s not that women were excluded, it just wasn’t practical. see SAPPERTON, A3

Sapperton move was decried by residents ⫸

There weren’t medically trained nurses around in those days. Patients were taken care of by men who didn’t know how to deal with medication. They were hired to feed and take care of the patients. Treatment was carried out by doctors, says Miller. So with the hospital full of sailors, miners and lumberjacks looking for a place to recover from their illnesses, and male employees, it didn’t make sense for women to go there, Miller says. A quarter century later it was already too small. In 1889, RCH moved to a “more modern” facility on East Columbia near where the current hospital sits. It held 80 beds and took $25,000 to build compared to the $3,394 to complete the original RCH. And this had a separate ward for female patients. Since most New Westminster
residents lived downtown there was an outcry the new hospital was too far away. But that dissipated after a streetcar line was opened. “First thing you know it’s filled, that’s the nature of the beast,” says Miller. The biggest leap forward, she says, came in 1901 when RCH joined forces with the women’s hospital on Third Avenue and started a nursing school. “You have bodies to take care of people,” says Miller. “It really begins to snowball.” In December 1912, the cornerstone for a new hospital was laid that eventually opened in 1914, costing $143,000 and able to serve 170 patients, only a quarter of what it can today. Part of that cornerstone is still in the foyer of RCH. Another wing was built in 1950 (replaced in 1992) and in 1978 the current health care

centre was constructed. “By the time the health care centre is built, it’s really quite an imposing place,” says Miller. In 1964, Royal Columbian was declared a regional hospital for particular health needs. It became much more specialized with patients needing higher levels of medical treatment sent there. One of those specialties
was trauma because its central location made sense. “Then, as is now, we are the hub, so with all the traffic problems they land here,” says Miller. In June of this year, the province announced it has approved proceeding with a redevelopment of RCH which could cost $750 million or more.

“It was a feeling we didn’t know what nursing was transitioning to. We didn’t know any other models, or how they would work,” says Rohachuk. Her first posting was in orthopedics and her second in the coronary care unit where her father was. The family connection to RCH even grew from there. Her twin sister, Shirley Harrop, went to work at RCH as a clerk and was there 33 years before recently being transferred. Rohachuk’s father died in 1977 and didn’t see Rohachuk graduate or get married. Following his death, her mother, Laura Auld, worked as

a housekeeper at RCH for 12 years retiring in 1991. And the connection now spans three generations. Rohachuk’s daughter, Krista Smith, graduated in nursing from Kwantlen College in 2011 and works just down the hall from Rohachuk in the same cardiac ward she did. “That’s really cool because she has chosen the very area I was in,” says Rohachuk, who is now a manager of health services at RCH. In her nearly 35 years there, Rohachuk has seen many changes as the hospital has grown to not only serve New West and the immediate area, but also be the hospital Fraser
“We believe we do really good work with limited resources because we are a can-do place.” In June, then health minister Mike de Jong announced approval for plans to do a redevelopment of RCH, expected to cost about $750 million. That has the staff encouraged and optimistic for the hospital’s future. Rohachuk’s daughter Krista is scheduled to give birth to a son in December. The granny-to-be smiles slyly at the possibility of a fourth generation of her family eventually joining the RCH family as it heads toward its 200th anniversary.

Health sends its most seriously ill and injured patients to. “Today, the word congestion is used over and over again, there are not enough beds. In those days this was not the case, probably because we didn’t have the same number of services. Everything was on a smaller scale.” Being part of raising the bar at RCH with so many specialties and expertise has been exciting for Rohachuk. “We had such good personnel that wanted to optimize their education and skills and adapt to a higher level role. There are a lot of self-starters that wanted to get programs going,” says Rohachuk.

The master plan presented to council also indicated the tennis courts, which are so rarely used the city uses part of the area for soil storage, could be turned into a plaza. HB Lanarc Golder consultant Jana Zelenski said a plaza could become “the heart” of the park with its location between the stadium, the arena, the arenex and the Bernie Legge Theatre. Council heard there has been indications the baseball community would like to see that area turned into an indoor training facility. Cote said it would be worthwhile getting more information about that concept. Coun. Bill Harper wondered if the plaza and stadium area should be looked at in a city-wide context as part of a one-stop sports complex, such as Burnaby’s Central Valley facilities. “Is this (Queen’s Park) the spot? We have the [Canada Games Pool] and other sports facilities nearby, or is somewhere else the spot?” said Harper. Please see Queen’s park, a9

OPINION NEWSLEADER’S VIEW:
PuBLISHED & PRINTED BY BLACK PRESS LTD. at 7438 Fraser Park Drive, Burnaby, B.C. V5J 5B9
QUESTION OF THE WEEK:
In the media glare “They’ve been punished by the media coverage.” This phrase, or variations of it, is often used by defence lawyers lobbying for lighter sentences for their clients. We even hear it from judges. And they all have a point… but only to a point. Indeed, anyone accused of a crime who is unlucky enough to get unwanted media attention pays a price. Some readers no doubt will rush to judgment, convinced that only the guilty get charged. Sadly, this is not always the case. Innocent people – and all are deemed innocent until proven guilty, in the eyes of our system – suffer from that same system in which justice is meant to be conducted in public. However, once a guilty plea is entered or a conviction rendered, it should be incumbent on the courts to consider any suffering caused by public scrutiny to be off-limits when sentencing. Recently, the lawyer for confessed dog thief Louise Reid told the judge a news article on her involvement in stealing dogs was posted on a bulletin board at her work; and a front-page story appeared in the newspaper her granddaughter delivers. We can only hope Judge Peder Gulbransen did not consider that as “punishment” when he gave her a one-year probation and ordered her to pay $2,500 in restitution, as the dog was never returned. The argument in court is almost always along the lines that news reports caused the offender embarrassment. The question that must be asked is, what exactly did the guilty parties think would happen? Did they only decide to break the law because they thought no one would find out? The media exists to inform the public of what is happening in their communities; to recognize those who do well and hold accountable those who choose to act outside the law. There is a simple way to minimize the discomfort: don’t break the law. – Black Press

Leaders’ spin contest ends in tie VICTORIA – The Union of B.C. Municipalities convention is the political event of the year for B.C. party leaders, especially heading into a provincial election. Up first was NDP leader Adrian Dix, who drew a large crowd of local politicians last week for the traditional earlymorning spot that follows a long evening of receptions. In contrast to his debut last year, a typical litany of political attacks on the B.C. Liberals, Dix declared he would take the high road. And perhaps mindful of Carole James’ downfall after her content-free speech to the 2010 UBCM convention, Dix set out policies. He told delegates an NDP government would restore local authority over Metro Vancouver transit (no more toothless “mayor’s council”) and mountain resorts (no more Jumbo ski resort permits issued over local objections). Dix would also let communities decide if they want publicprivate partnerships for large construction projects. (Federal

Heritage Minister James Moore later noted that if communities or provinces wish to decline federal funds due to this ideology, they are free to do so.) Then Dix accused the B.C. Liberals of cutting forest inventory spending by 77 per cent over the last decade, meaning decisions like rebuilding the Burns Lake mill are being made “in the dark” for the first time in a century. That’s a damning charge, so I checked it against forest ministry budget records. As with all government programs, accounting changes can give a misleading appearance of large cuts or increases from year to year. And indeed forest inventory spending has bounced around during the B.C. Liberal term. The budget for forest inventory staffing and operation was about
7438 Fraser Park Dr., Burnaby, B.C. V5J 5B9 email@example.com burnabynewsleader.com | newwestnewsleader.com
$8 million in 2001-02, rising as high as $15 million and falling to a low of $5.1 million in recessionhit 2009-10. The estimate for the current fiscal year is $9.7 million, an increase to try to catch up with the pine beetle disaster. Crown forest inventory has indeed fallen behind due to rapid shifts caused by unprecedented insect and fire damage. But has spending been slashed as Dix claims? No. It has increased. Next up was Premier Christy Clark, in full campaign mode. In the Gordon Campbell tradition, she brought the goodies out in her speech to close the convention. More than $200 million has been scraped together to “accelerate” capital projects at schools, hospitals and other facilities across the province. These projects were already on the books, but they’ve been moved up for obvious political purposes. Or at least the announcements will be moved up. Four-laning of the last narrow stretches of the Trans-Canada Highway east of Kamloops will continue over 10 years. This
is a federal-provincial project that will eventually be finished regardless of who is governing in Victoria or Ottawa. It includes some of the most staggeringly expensive road building in Canada, in the Kicking Horse Pass, a short section that could require two tunnels and up to 12 more bridges. Clark also announced a long-range plan to replace the George Massey tunnel under the Fraser River. It will likely be a bridge, because the tunnel is a bottleneck not only for Highway 99, but also for large ships going up-river. This is another project that will proceed eventually, and there is no specific financial commitment yet. I haven’t found any outright false claims in Clark’s presentation, just the kind of creative accounting and blacktop politics familiar to B.C. voters. As always, I’m pleased to hear from people with specific corrections. For now, call it a tie. Neither speech represents a proud moment for our provincial leadership. firstname.lastname@example.org

‘You come to realize people are kind’ ⫸
from page a8
“You see people in the lineup on the news, and people have nothing good to say about them,” says McClelland. “But you don’t see what’s inside.” She says many of the mission’s visitors come more for the camaraderie and to connect with friends
than a bowl of hearty soup. Although they’re especially appreciative of the latter. “You come to realize people are kind,” says McClelland. “You’re not as quick to judge them.” On Tuesday she pitched in to help season the first of about 30 turkeys that chefs Mike Miller and Fred Kryska
will be preparing for Monday’s holiday dinner. Her gloved hands buried to their knuckles in a bowl of herbs and spices, McClelland bantered merrily with Kryska about her own way of preparing turkey. “This doesn’t feel like work,” she says, smiling.
• The Union Gospel Mission will be serving Thanksgiving dinner at its New Westminster location, 658 Clarkson St., beginning at noon on Monday.
The dinner also kicks off Homelessness Action Week that includes Connect Day at Holy Trinity Cathedral on Tuesday, a tour of services and resources available to the homeless on Wednesday, a
lunch at St. Barnabas Church on Thursday and multifaith prayer services at St. Barnabas Church on Friday. For more information and a detailed schedule of events, go to www.downtownnewwest.ca

Queen’s Park plan in the works ⫸
continued from page a5
“If the stadium is not there, what do we do with the property?” said Harper. “We need to look at it as a total piece. I wouldn’t want to miss an opportunity if we just put in a [plaza]. What is the function of it? I’d hate to knock down the stadium, but the question is what are the uses of it?” The asphalt tennis courts, he said, are a valuable piece of real estate that could eventually be used in a sporting capacity. He suggested making it a passive park temporarily to keep costs down and then entertain proposals for high-level
sport activity there in the future. “The concerns council had are all very legitimate,” said Arenex manager Jay Young, who is in charge of developing the plan. “We have some answers to them, but at this point we need to find out what our next step is. “Ultimately I can’t stress enough this plan expresses what the community wants. There’s many, many people and many, many perspectives, and not everybody is going to be thrilled with what happens in the end. But in the end we will be confident that’s what the majority of the community wants.”

Paying attention is part of life experience and the skillful management of that capacity brings benefits to enrich us. It’s a challenge though to slow down and pay attention in this fast-paced world. Everywhere, stimuli vie for our attention, disturbing our focus. Our human brain isn’t quite so adaptable and still needs, studies suggest, 1.2 seconds to store a thought, an image, sound or any other stimulus. By paying attention we give our brain that time. By paying attention we slow down our lives and begin to smell the roses. Or, as in my case, hear the beauty of the sound of a cello as I play all the wrong notes! Concentrate, Rick, focus!

FIRE PREVENTION DAY Saturday, October 13th | 9:30am - 5:00pm
Keep your home fire safe with a few easy tips
Only a working smoke alarm can save your life! Fire Prevention Week oct. 7-14
Smoke alarms save lives “Fall back” to smart home safety As most Canadians turn back the clocks on November 4, here are some timely smoke and carbon monoxide (CO) safety tips: • When you change your clocks, test your smoke arlam. • You have less than three minutes to escape a fire. So when smoke alarms sound, everyone must know what to do and where to go. Having and practising an escape plan is essential. • Install one smoke alarm on every storey and outside bedrooms. Install inside bedrooms if you sleep with doors closed. • Ensure all smoke alarms are fully powered. Never take out batteries or remove an alarm from ceiling due to a false alarm. • If your home has any fuel-burning devices such as a gas furnace, gas water heater, gas appliances, or an attached garage or carport, install at least one CSAapproved carbon monoxide outside all sleeping areas. One per storey is recommended.
• Replace smoke alarms every 10 years, and CO alarms every 7-10 years (depending on manufacturer) whether battery operated or hardwired into your home’s electrical system. Carbon monoxide is colourless, odourless and tasteless. So without a CO alarm, humans cannot detect its presence. Despite the average home having several potential sources of the deadly gas, studies show that nearly 60 per cent of Canadians have not installed a CO alarm. In addition to being impossible to detect, CO also has another nefarious trait. Symptoms of carbon monoxide exposure mimic the flu, without the fever. It is routinely responsible for thousands of clinic and hospital visits each year, and is commonly misdiagnosed. Prolonged or extreme exposure causes nausea, dizziness, confusion, the loss of physical mobility, brain damage and ultimately, death. More home safety resources can be found on the www. safeathome.ca web site.
niors will often need assistance from family members to put safety measures into place. As well, family members are in the best position to reinforce the precautions necessary to help their loved ones prevent or respond to a fire. Focus on these six priorities to help aging family members protect themselves against fire in the home.
• Avoid loose long sleeves when cooking. • Check kettles and toasters for damaged electrical cords and thermostats. • Use appliances that have an automatic shutoff. • Keep a timer handy to remind you when the oven and burners should be switched off. • If you take medication that causes drowsiness, do not use cooking appliances. • Use a temperature controlled electric skillet or deep-fryer for frying. • Never leave your cooking unattended. • Use appropriate cooking appliances and keep them clean. • Keep a pot cover nearby to “put a lid on it” in the event of a fire.
Analysis was undertaken on almost 50,000 fires that occurred in Alberta, British Columbia, and Ontario over a 5-year period involving 663 fatalities. The findings demonstrated that the death rate per 1,000 fires in the absence of a present, functioning smoke alarm was 74% greater than when a functioning smoke alarm was present.
Thanksgiving turkey fires cause for concern at 9-1-1 centre E -Comm’s fire dispatch team is warning families to be mindful of their turkey cooking during Thanksgiving weekend. “A turkey isn’t something you typically see on a list of household fire hazards, but we get 9-1-1 calls about ovens going up in flames all the time,” says Corey Kelso, E-Comm fire dispatcher. “The result can be devastating if you’re not careful every time you have something cooking for an extended period of time.”
E-Comm has received some odd calls to 9-1-1 before – including someone wanting to know how long to cook a turkey – but a turkey fire is no joke. In fact, it is a leading cause of spikes in 9-1-1 calls over the holidays. “A flame in your oven can start easily and escalate quickly,” says Kelso. “Oil drippings through a thin tinfoil turkey pan or bits of leftover food residue inside your oven are extremely flammable in a high temperature setting.”
Many fatal fires start at night Investigations into home fire deaths very often find that a smoke alarm did not sound. It may have been disconnected or not in working order. The batteries may have been dead, or someone may have taken them out. Smoke alone won’t necessarily wake you up. In fact, the fumes could put you into an even deeper sleep. Often, victims never wake up. Se-
■ INSTALL smoke alarms inside every bedroom, outside each sleeping area and on every level of the home, including the basement. ■ Larger homes may need ADDITIONAL smoke alarms to provide enough protection. ■ For the best protection, INTERCONNECT all smoke alarms so when one sounds they all sound. ■ An IONIZATION smoke alarm is generally more responsive to flaming fires and a PHOTOELECTRIC smoke alarm is generally more responsive to smoldering fires. For the best protection, both types of alarms or combination ionization and photoelectric alarms (also known as dual sensor alarms) are recommended. ■ Smoke alarms should be INSTALLED away from the kitchen to prevent false alarms. Generally, they should be at least 10 feet (3 meters) from a cooking appliance. ■ REPLACE all smoke alarms when they are 10 years old.
• Fireplace: always use a fire screen, ensuring it is the appropriate size for the fireplace opening. • Do not overload electrical outlets or use extension cords in the place of additional outlets. • Smokers should check furniture for fallen cigarettes or embers, which can smoulder undetected for hours before bursting into flames. • Ensure careful use of smoking materials and extinguish in water before disposal. • Never leave cigarettes in an ashtray unattended. • Use ashtrays with a double rim and deep centre. • Keep matches, lighters and lit candles out of the reach of children. • Never leave lit candles unattended.
BedRoom • Install at least one smoke alarm outside each sleeping area. For improved safety, install a smoke alarm in every bedroom. • Check electrical appliances regularly: electric blankets, heating pads, curling irons, radios, televisions, irons. • Bedrooms should be non-smoking areas.
Basement and attic • Remove all combustible and flammable materials from the basement and attic. • Store gasoline in well-ventilated areas. • Do not store propane indoors. • Use only approved containers to store and transport gasoline. • Have a thorough yearly maintenance check of the furnace carried out by a professional. • When replacing an old furnace, consult a professional to determine the most safe, economical and efficient system for your home. • Chimneys should be cleaned once a year.
gaRage and WoRKshop • Flammable materials – thinners, gasoline, paints, industrial cleaners – should be stored neatly in approved containers and away from possible ignitable sources. • Do not smoke, or leave matches or lighters in the garage or workshop. • Install and know how to properly use the appropriate fire extinguisher for the garage/ workshop. • Keep the area clean. Remove garbage, paper products, oily rags and wood shavings regularly.

FIRE PREVENTION DAY Common-sense fire prevention can save lives Saturday, October 13th | 9:30am - 5:00pm
If Catherine O’Leary’s cow had a second exit from her barn, she might not have been barbecued when she kicked over an oil lamp, sparking the great Chicago fire of 1871. The inferno destroyed 18,000 buildings, killed 300 people and left a third of the city’s population homeless. But from the embers of that disaster emerged the idea of fire prevention. In 1911, on the 40th anniversary of the Chicago conflagration, the Fire Marshals Association of North America declared Fire Prevention Day. It’s since grown to an entire week of public education programs and events to remind people that the best way to avoid fire tragedies is to prevent them from happening in the first place. This year’s Fire Prevention Week takes place from Oct. 7-13 with the theme, “have two ways out.”
It’s advice that shouldn’t be taken lightly. According to Fire Prevention Canada, an average of eight people die in fires every week in Canada, and almost three-quarters of those are in residential fires. Having a primary and secondary escape route planned and practiced can help save lives. So can a few common sense safety tips like: • never leave cooking on the stove unattended • don’t start cooking if you take medication that causes drowsiness • don’t overload electrical outlets • keep lighters and matches out of the reach of children • check batteries in smoke detectors • check electrical appliances for frayed wiring regularly • don’t store propane tanks indoors
• clean chimneys annually • clean the lint filter before using a clothes dryer And while candles might seem romantic and cosy, they’re also one of the most common causes of household fires. Don’t leave burning candles unattended. Don’t fall asleep while using candles. Don’t put them in high traffic areas where they might be knocked over, and don’t let them burn beyond two inches from their holder. To be ready in case the unthinkable happens, develop and practice a fire escape plan. Ensure all windows and doors can be unlocked and opened, then figure out two ways to escape from each room, including hallways and stairs. When fleeing a fire, be sure to close all doors behind you. Set up a place to meet when everyone is out.

Sagging demand from home buyers is putting downward pressure on Lower Mainland real estate prices, but mainly in areas where prices had shot up faster than the rest of the region. September home sales in Metro
Vancouver were down eight per cent from August and have plunged 32.5 per cent from a year ago, according to the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver (REBGV). And a composite benchmark price that tracks all residential property movement in the area is down 2.3 per cent in the past three months, or down 0.8 per cent from a year ago. That decline has been a more modest 1.8 per cent over three months and 0.1 per cent from a year ago over the entire Lower Mainland – which includes the Fraser Valley, where values have held up better. “In some areas and neighbourhoods we’re seeing price declines, especially in the areas that ran up the most,”
said Tsur Somerville, director of UBC’s Centre for Urban Economics and Real Estate at the Sauder School of Business. “There is a noticeable difference between this West Vancouver-Vancouver west side-Richmond grouping and everywhere else,” he said. Prices in the three oceanfront cities that had soared in 2010 and 2011 have dropped five to seven per cent from their recent peaks, he noted. The priciest district remains Vancouver’s west side, where benchmark detached houses typically cost close to $2.1 million. That’s down 6.5 per cent from a year ago but still up almost 40 per cent over the past five years. It’s a completely different story in
CHOICEquotes Tsur Somerville, Sauder School of Business To have some dramatic radical change you need to have something dramatically and radically change and I don’t see what that is.
Maple Ridge, where a detached house typically changes hands at $468,000 – the same price as five years ago and up just over one per cent from a year ago. The Fraser Valley Real Estate Board, which covers Surrey, said residential property as a whole declined 0.4 per cent in the past three months, but is up 2.1 per cent year-over-year. Detached houses are up three per cent from a year ago at $549,000 while townhouses are down 1.7 per cent to $305,700 and apartments have gained 4.1 per cent to $198,800.

“The Fraser Valley is much more stable than other areas of the Lower Mainland,” Somerville said. Demand for higher end homes has fallen off the fastest in both Metro Vancouver and the Valley. Greater Vancouver real estate board president Eugen Klein said Ottawa’s elimination of 30-year government-insured mortgages earlier this year has led to a “clear reduction in buyer demand” because the measure intended to rein in Canadian debt loads has made homes less affordable here. But Somerville doesn’t think Ottawa’s tightening of mortgage rules is playing a major role. “That only applies on mortgages with a down payment of 25 per cent or less,” he said. “Nobody’s out buying a high-end home with a three per cent down payment.” Somerville said a slowdown in Lower Mainland residential market demand has been underway since last December and is being matched by flattening prices. He doesn’t detect anything likely to trigger a much deeper drop in the market. “To have some dramatic radical change you need to have something dramatically and radically change and I don’t see what that is.” Market psychology is also playing a role and a recent survey found many Metro residents think prices will continue down, a belief that could extend the trend if many would-be buyers decide to keep waiting.

the spacious feel. The composite stone slab countertops in the kitchen are beautifully complemented by a polished porcelain-tile backsplash and flat panel wood veneer or Shaker-style cabinetry.

Giving you some time back at Morgan Crossing
Living the artistic life at the lofts at The Summit House by Kerry Vital
The Summit House is bringing a touch of loft style to South Surrey’s Morgan Crossing. With all the beautiful features of the other Summit House homes as well as some new details of their own, these limited-edition lofts are a cut above the rest. “These aren’t typical condos,” says Bryan Woolley, president of Fingerprint Strategies Inc. “They’re not cookiecutter at all.” Built by Larco Investments, the two-bedroom homes feature the master bedroom and living areas on the first floor with a loft on the second floor that can be used for a bedroom, media room, library, art studio or a romantic retreat. The spacious layouts are open and inviting, and feature plenty of room for entertaining or relaxing. The homes range from 1,026 to 1,261 square feet, and include huge windows to allow in plenty of natural light. “These are the only lofts available in South Surrey,” says Woolley. “There’s been a lot of interest in these great floorplans.” In fact, nearly half of the 13 lofts have already been sold. Some of the beautiful features in the lofts include gas cooktops, soft-close cabinetry in the kitchen and incredibly high ceilings at almost 22 feet. Gorgeous hardwood laminate floors are included throughout the main living areas, while the bedrooms feature carpeting that is perfect for sinking your toes into. Electric fireplaces are cozy and inviting, while the large outdoor patios and balconies give you your own outdoor space. The cabinetry and gas cooktop aren’t the only great things about the kitchens. The 1 3/4-inch quartz countertops and glass or ceramic tile backsplash are chic and modern, while the stainless-steel appliances are a gourmet’s dream. Homeowners at The Summit House are able to take advantage of some pretty lovely amenities, including a private rooftop plaza that features a community garden, barbecue and fire pit. However, one of the best features at The Summit House is the amazing mountain views from many of the suites. They have proven inspirational in many ways. “The lofts have been attracting artists and other creative types,” says Woolley. The Morgan Crossing village has
been the biggest draw to the homes, Woolley says. With tons of shopping, eateries and leisure activities in the area, there is never a shortage of things to do. “It’s so convenient,” he says, adding “it feels like a real community.” Even dogs will find their perfect place in Morgan Crossing, with its Paws Crossing dog park. The village is perfect for those looking to meet people. Larco regularly holds community events, including hockey tournaments and fashion shows. “There is a very eclectic mix of owners,” says Woolley. The range of demographics include a 19-year-old who bought the place on his own to a 92-year-old who enjoys the vibrant atmosphere of Morgan Crossing. The convenience factor is really an integral part of the community,
These are the only lofts available in South Surrey,” says Bryan Woolley, president of Fingerprint Strategies.

Buyers will be able to be a part of the vibrant Morgan Crossing community and take advantage of all the amenities, including the convenience of almost everything you could possibly need, all in one place.
