So long, CENTRAL Burnaby Central will soon fall to the wrecking ball as students and staff move to new digs. Though it may have been time to replace the old building, for many it is a place where lifelong memories and friendships were made
Monica Frank hangs out in the very same spot she used to when she was a student at Burnaby Central secondary school. She returned to the school as a counsellor in 2000 and is now the head of the department as Central prepares to pack up to a new building next door.

NEWS BRIEFS BEAR SIGHTINGS AT SFU
MODEST HIRING CLIMATE
A poll of Burnaby Board of Trade members shows only a minority believe construction of the provincial Highway 1 project will negatively affect their business. Among poll participants, 37.8 per cent believe it will have a negative impact while 62.2 per cent believe it won’t. The project, which includes expansion of the highway and construction of a larger replacement for the Port Mann Bridge, is expected to be completed in 2013.
Simon Fraser University’s Burnaby campus has been the site of bear sightings this week. On Wednesday, a bear was spotted on South Campus Road. One was also seen Tuesday, near the Diamond Alumni Centre. And two bears were also found Monday, one in the residence area near Shell House and another at the intersection of Gaglardi Way and Burnaby Mountain Parkway. Anyone who sees a bear on campus can call campus security at 778-782-3100.
Employers in the BurnabyCoquitlam area are expecting a modest hiring climate for the third quarter of 2011, according to the Manpower Employment Outlook Survey.

Another 80 per cent plan to maintain current stafﬁng levels.
The Vancouver-Burnaby branch of the Canadian Mental Health Association has been awarded a $400,000 annual contract from Fraser Health to operate a new, full-time rehabilitation and recovery-focused clubhouse program in Burnaby. The program will give residents access to a peerdriven psychosocial rehabilitation program that is a place to go for support and rehab services where they can feel a sense of belonging.

HOUSE LOST IN FIRE
Memories of old Central abound New building to open in fall, demolition of old to make way for new track By Wanda Chow NEWSLEADER
n the surface, Burnaby Central secondary seems like any other high school in the last weeks of June. There’s a buzz as students tackle exams while the excitement of summer vacation hangs in the air around them. But there are signs that something’s different this year. Like the piles of boxes everywhere, and constant packing. Or the grafﬁti on lockers and walls saying goodbye to the old place. After 53 years, Central’s ﬁrst building is set to close to make way for a brand new $50.6-million structure opening in September. The old building will be torn down and a new track built in its place. “It seems like yesterday they were just opening the brand new school,” said Janet White, part of the ﬁrst graduating class in 1960, who went on to teach there in the 1980s.
At the time, it was considered one of the most modern schools in the province, even offering a special electronics course to senior students planning to study electrical engineering at the University of British Columbia. The ﬁelds were mostly muddy until a track and playing ﬁelds were built, she recalled. And the neighbourhood was mainly forest, with many students having to be bused to and from school. That meant you had to serve any detentions during lunch break, she added with a laugh. In 1983, when White was a teacher there, she helped organize the school’s 25th anniversary event. It was attended by alumnus Michael J. Fox. “I think he came in a limo and all the girls were screaming,” she recalled. “Within days I saw him on television [and realized why]. I literally did not know who he was.”
Many celebrity alums Michael J. Fox joins a long list of celebrity alumni at the school which includes chef Rob Feenie, NHL hockey player Glenn Anderson, and at least two Olympians— decathlete Dave Steen and boxer Dale Walters.
Eric Byman, a science teacher at Burnaby Central secondary school for the past 15 years, checks the progress of packing his department for the move to the new building this summer.
Now 47, Walters’ memories of the place included winning the “Mr. Wildcat” male beauty pageant, and organizing a mud wrestling event as part of the annual water sports day. Both projects happened under the direction of marketing teacher George Turpin, whose class Walters never had trouble passing. Ironically, that couldn’t be said for the community recreation 12 class he took, which was akin to physical education. He managed to organize a ﬁeld trip to Oakalla prison up the hill and write a report about
it, but he skipped enough classes that he failed—and didn’t graduate. Walters ended up taking classes the following year to earn the required credits, while also working and training for the 1984 Olympics. “I went to the Olympics and won a medal but I didn’t graduate from Central because I failed P.E.,” said Walters with a laugh. Schoolmate “Michael J. Fox failed acting and never got his graduation certiﬁcate from Central either ... for the same reason, he never went.” Monica Frank (then known as Monica Chucko)
recalled Central being a “jock school” known for the successful track and ﬁeld program run by math teacher Ken Taylor. One look at the numerous banners in the gym is ample evidence of that reputation, which still continues with one of the top wrestling programs in the province. Frank, 49, who was on the track and ﬁeld team in the 1970s, even recalled helping organize a group of girls into a football team after deciding it wasn’t fair that only boys were allowed to play. “We practised for a month then we realized there was no [girls] league. We quit. You can’t have a team if there’s no competition,” she said with a laugh.
Prison breaks Since 2000, Frank has worked at Central as a counsellor and is now head of student services, as the department is now known. As a former student there, the changes over the years are numerous. Back in the ’70s, the biggest building in Burnaby was the Sears at what is now Metrotown. Students would get the occasional warnings of escapees from Oakalla prison. PLEASE SEE WE’RE ON A8
One house was burnt to the ground and three others damaged after a two-alarm ﬁre in South Burnaby’s Buckingham neighbourhood early Wednesday morning. Burnaby ﬁreﬁghters were called to 7525 Lambeth Dr. at about 6 a.m. and arrived to ﬁnd the house, which was vacant and undergoing renovations, fully engulfed in ﬂames. “They couldn’t save the original, it was too far gone, the ﬂames were right through the house and it was pretty well collapsed, so they wanted to save the house next door,” said assistant ﬁre chief administration Tom Foreman. The house next door at 7517 Lambeth Dr. was on ﬁre on the roof and the side of the house. By the time ﬁreﬁghters put out the blaze, there was “substantial damage” to the second ﬂoor, attic and roof, he said. Residents of that house managed to escape before ﬁre crews arrived. There were no injuries. The original ﬁre is believed to be suspicious and the investigation has since been turned over to Burnaby RCMP.

Another tower eyed for Metrotown area 35-storey highrise goes to public July 26; developer offering $7.3M community benefit to city

The latest in a recent series of highrise proposals for the Metrotown area will be going to public hearing on July 26, Burnaby council decided recently. The proposal, by Concord Paciﬁc Holdings Ltd., is for a 35-storey residential tower with a three-storey townhouse podium on Nelson Avenue, overlooking Bonsor Recreation Complex and kitty corner from Polygon’s 37-storey Chancellor at Metrotown project currently under construction on the old Kal Tire site. The concept also includes a row of two-storey townhouses on Dunblane Avenue and underground parking to be accessed from the eastwest lane, according to a city staff report. The total proposal com-
prises 292 apartment units and 11 townhouse units. The site, which will require rezoning, is made up of the north-south lane and eight lots—6566, 6576, 6584 and 6594 Nelson Avenue and 6565, 6575, 6583 and 6593 Dunblane Avenue—which are all vacant and currently zoned RM3 multiple family residential district. The site is designated for high-density apartment development in the Metrotown Town Centre Development Plan. The developer has committed to building the project to a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) silver standard, the report said. The project, if approved, would include more than 84,000 square feet of additional ﬂoor space through the density bonus program. As the site is not considered suitable for an on-site community amenity, the value of the density bonus, $7.39 million, would be given to the city as a cash-in-lieu contribution. The money would be deposited into an account
designated for amenity projects in the Metrotown area. According to council policy, 20 per cent, or about $1.48 million, of the contribution would be designated for affordable or special needs housing projects anywhere in the city. As for the ﬁnal condo development, the city staff report said, the developer will provide 45 two-zone transit passes for two years for residents’ use, twice the required amount of secured bicycle parking, 30 electric vehicle plug-in stations and two electric vehicles to be owned, operated and maintained by the future strata corporation. Common areas for residents will include a lounge, gallery and golf simulator, and outside, a public art installation, water feature and putting green. The public hearing on the project’s rezoning application will be held Tuesday, July 26, 7 p.m. in council chambers at Burnaby city hall.
Routledge chosen by NDP in Burnaby-North Janet Routledge has won the B.C. New Democrat nomination as its candidate in Burnaby-North for the next provincial election, which could happen as early as this fall. A retired regional director of the Public Service Alliance of Canada, Routledge currently sits on the Employment Insurance Board of Referees where she hears appeals for EI. She has lived in the BurnabyNorth riding for 15 years, and has been active in the community, including organizing last summer’s HST initiative petition campaign in Burnaby. “Janet understands the challenges families in Burnaby and across B.C. are facing, and will stand up for them every day,” said BC NDP Leader Adrian Dix. “Janet will be a strong voice for the people of Burnaby-North. “I’m looking forward to hitting the doorstep with her.” Routledge will be trying to unseat three-term incumbent Liberal MLA Richard Lee. firstname.lastname@example.org

Packaging responsibly Since the beginning of the Blue Box program, the onus was on consumers to recycle. Whether that meant ﬁlling up your bin every other week with unwanted paper and cardboard, cans and glass, or taking items to the landﬁll for appropriate disposal, industry was largely off the hook for its part in the creation of excess. With the province’s move to eventually force industry to plan for the end use of its products and packaging materials, it may force companies to change the way they market and distribute their goods. Packaging is created as much to enhance visibility in retail stores as for practical purposes. But overpackaging, particularly with small items that get hung on racks, has long been a problem. Putting the onus on producers to change the way they present products will no doubt require a major sea change. Many of our fancily packaged goods come from companies that chose a long time ago to cut costs by moving production facilities to Asia. Nonetheless, the time is coming for manufacturers and retailers to take responsibility for what they put into the environment and think seriously about where their products will end up. It’s time for some innovative packaging ideas. Better still, why not have the government create ﬁnancial incentives for companies that go the extra mile, or for innovative and entrepreneurial alternatives to the status quo? We can’t grumble when extra costs related to packaging or packing products differently are passed along to the end user, since we’re all part of the problem. Regardless what form this industry-led system takes, the public won’t be completely off the hook. We’ll have to keep up our habit of separating materials for recycling. Getting help from industry can only help speed up the process of slowing down our environmental impact. - Black Press

A couple months ago I wrote a letter expressing my concern about the neglected cherry trees in the Brentwood area. Because of a fungus disease and lack of maintenance, these trees were rapidly deteriorating. In my letter, I asked residents to call or email the City of Burnaby, urging them to look after our beautiful trees. Not long after that, I received a call from the city assuring me the trees would soon get the requested maintenance. The city is now in the process of pruning all the trees in the Brentwood area, and what a difference it’s making—and what a professional job they’re doing! I want to thank residents who took the time to contact the city to address this issue. This shows us that collectively we can make a difference, and together we can achieve positive results. Thanks to the City of Burnaby for responding so promptly and professionally. Frank Di Cesare Burnaby

city. What right do we have to claim the moral high ground when we harass a person to the point that they hand themselves to the police without any valid evidence, other than the word of a person on the Internet claiming it’s him? This is not the Vancouver I grew up in, it’s much too cynical and harsh to be the place I knew. That saddens me, and I can only end this note by hoping that in coming days, it’s not just the rioters who take a moment to reﬂect on their actions. Trevor Ritchie Burnaby
cally asked a judge to release his name. He also called a press conference to publicly apologize and submit himself to the authorities. Prior to this, the Vigilantes of Vancouver released his father’s phone number, amongst other bits of personal information. This is not a unique story. Other blog sites have appeared to make a sport of this, “outing” as many people as possible and in as brutal a fashion as possible. There doesn’t appear to be any consideration of the consequences of these actions, which is an irony considering the charges being made by the vigilantes against these kids. There are always rumours, and I hope the rumours of people harassing this person’s father and praying that the youth is raped in jail are false. I did not spend the past ﬁve months of my life trying to pass a policy ending homophobic bullying in Burnaby schools just so I could ignore bullying done in the rest of my community. And make no mistake, this is bullying when you release private information for the purpose of ridiculing and harassing an individual. Supplicating a higher power to cause harm on another and then telling that person you did it? Saying that the accused should kill himself? That’s considered an acceptable response by the Vigilantes of Vancouver? It’s wrong, and in any other situation those responsible would be in jail too. We’ve failed, Vancouver. We had an opportunity to respond to the riots, and rather than letting the justice system do its job, we let the lunatics of our town mete their own justice and in doing so have further tarnished the reputation of our

Vancouver has completely overreacted to this riot. If this were any other situation, the things we’ve done to the publicly identiﬁed accused would constitute crimes in of themselves. For those not fully informed, let me back up a bit. Wednesday night after the Canucks lost game seven of the Stanley Cup playoffs, a riot happened in downtown Vancouver. This was something of an inevitability, since we had a large number of people conﬁned to a small area, and large amounts of previously consumed alcohol. It’s been said that several of the more eager rioters were members of the Black Bloc, while most others were a combination of intoxicated individuals or those who fell prey to the mob mentality. I don’t know what the truth is. What I do know is that there were individuals who came equipped to commit property damage, and that those people should face criminal penalties for their premeditated actions. However, that designation does not fall upon everyone who participated or observed the events of the riot. Many were otherwise average people that would go unnoticed through life. And unfortunately, many of those involved, or at least accused of being involved, were teenagers. There’s been a rash of sites and web pages cropping up on the Internet where people can share pictures and help identify the perpetrators of the riots, as a means of helping the police prosecute the correct individuals. In theory, I have no problem with the idea of helping the police complete an investigation, particularly if it leads to the truth and to a safer community. What I do not condone or tolerate is the distribution of private information about individuals, especially individuals protected by law. The Youth Criminal Justice Act is clear in the fact that young offenders cannot be named. Mr. Nathan Kotylak is only named in his criminal reports because he speciﬁ-

‘We’re taking our roots with us’ CONTINUED FROM PAGE
Private farms were all nestled along the bottom of the Oakalla lands. Gilpin Street still was home to horse stables. And the school population was mainly white and middleclass. Today, one-tenth of its student body is international students, with the remainder just as diverse culturally. Frank noted that meeting the needs of the diverse student body included setting up a badminton
Art and photography teacher Bonnie Fordyce wonders what will become of her darkroom and its giant sink when the old Burnaby Central secondary school is closed down this summer. club, which regularly draws more than 100 students, mostly Asian, who ﬁll two gymnasiums. In her day, “badminton was something you did in your backyard,” she said of the change. More so than decades ago, there are students who live with issues such as social problems, divided families and government social services involvement, Frank said. “I think life’s gotten very complex. What kids see on TV shows today I couldn’t imagine seeing in my entire childhood.” Inside the school, computer labs now sit where Frank used to take typing and shorthand classes. She’ll miss the large spaces like the high-ceilinged art classroom with loads of storage space, and all the nooks and cran-
nies that they simply don’t build in new schools anymore. And some teachers, such as biology teacher Patricia Coutts who has taught at Central for 25 years, are retiring this month. Frank pointed out that Coutts has long kept a freezer full of roadkill for use in lessons. “Most people see it as roadkill, Patricia sees it as a teachable moment,” she said with a laugh. Coutts replied with a smile, “I’m not quite sure what I’m going to do with it all.” For Coutts, her funniest memory involved fellow retiring science teacher Bruce Campbell. “Mr. Campbell cleared the building because he burnt a peanut in the lab.” The science lesson gone awry left him with some explaining to do when the ﬁreﬁghters arrived, she said with a laugh. Frank has mixed feelings about saying goodbye to the building she knows so well but noted that while the building will be closing the people that make up the school will be moving to a brand new space next door. “We’re taking our roots with us and making something better with it.”
You Asked... Q. I want to do something special to remember my son. Any ideas?
This isn’t your average garden party.
Join us as we unveil our collection of living sculptures!
A. Here are some unique thoughts ... try preparing a photo album with copies for each family member. Wear jewelry using your son’s Steve Hosking birthstone. Keep a journal. Create a quilt using pieces of your son’s clothing with panels signifying meaningful events or special interests. Release a helium balloon tied with ‘love-notes’. Continue to remember your son on intimate family cards by using a ‘symbol’ sticker or drawing (angel, dove). Send family and friends packets of Áower seeds (Forget-Me-Nots?) to be planted on the anniversary of your son’s birth or death. These are but a few.

City of Burnaby Notice Clariﬁcation regarding Safeway Site at Edmonds Town Centre The City of Burnaby has received numerous enquiries as a result of recent Safeway property marketing materials that suggest a vision for high-rise multifamily residential redevelopment at the location of its former distribution centre in the Edmonds Town Centre area. To clarify, this Safeway vision is not consistent with the City’s adopted Plan for the area, and was not shared with City Council or staff prior to its release. In fact, the site is currently zoned industrial and the City’s Council-adopted Community Plan for the Edmonds Town Centre designates it for low-rise multi-family residential redevelopment, based on RM1, RM2 and townhouse densities. The Plan also includes an expansion of Ernie Winch Park at 14th Avenue and 15th Street, and a greenway connecting to the Byrne Creek Secondary School, the Grifﬁths pedestrian-bicycle overpass, and the South Spur Urban Trail. In order to pursue redevelopment, a developer will need to work co-operatively with the City towards a suitable plan of development for consideration by Council. This further planning process would incorporate a detailed neighbourhood plan, master rezoning, servicing and subdivision of the site for residential redevelopment in accordance with the adopted Edmonds Town Centre Plan, with speciﬁc adjustments as warranted, subject to public consultation and Committee and Council approval. Please refer to the City’s adopted Community Plan for information on what can be expected to be approved for development on the site. Anyone who has questions regarding this site is encouraged to contact the City of Burnaby Planning Department at 604 294-7412.

Cold, wet spring one to forget RIGHT NOW GET
By Jeff Nagel BLACK PRESS
Good riddance to a stingy, soggy spring. Thatâ€™s what sun worshippers, farmers and garden centre operators are all saying after months of unseasonably cool weather. The strawberry harvest is ďŹ nally getting underway but itâ€™s at least 10 days behind schedule, making it the latest start in 30 years. â€œNormally you can expect a booming harvest by Fatherâ€™s Day,â€? said Sharmin Gamiet, manager of the Fraser Valley Strawberry Growersâ€™ Association. â€œBut itâ€™s been cold and itâ€™s been wet. It has been a challenging season.â€? The delay has made farmers nervous â€“ many lost crops last fall when heavy rains kept them from getting their root vegetables out of the ground. But Gamiet said the strawberry crop should be good provided plants donâ€™t get shocked by hot weather too quickly. Leanne Johnson, the chief operating ofďŹ cer for GardenWorks, said all garden centres have been hard hit by the dismal planting weather. â€œItâ€™s been the coldest wettest spring in 55 years,â€? she said. It was so cold and wet early in the spring few people wanted to think about planting, she said. And later on, the Vancouver Canucks playoff run began to compete for attention, keeping would-be gardenersâ€™ eyes on their TVs and their hands out of the soil. â€œItâ€™s been really tough,â€? Johnson said, predicting many gardeners simply wonâ€™t spend as much this year. â€œA lot of people are resigned to it being a lousy spring and theyâ€™re just not going to put the same kind of effort in as usual.â€? Environment Canada meteorologist David Jones said Metro Vancouver got 95 millimetres of rain in April and 92 mm in May â€“ thatâ€™s about 25 per cent more overall than the averages of 84 mm for a typical April and 68 mm for May. â€œIt was cloudier, wetter and a lot cooler for two solid months,â€? he said. â€œApril and May were very cold.â€? Much of the Fraser Valley even got snow on April 14. But he said Metro residents who think itâ€™s stayed bad this month are stuck in the past. â€œSince June started itâ€™s been not bad,â€? Jones said, calling it near-average with temperatures running only very slightly below normal.

Mumps virus back with new outbreak Contagious illness attacks the glands By Jeff Nagel BLACK PRESS
As a part of ensuring provision of potable drinking water to its consumers, the City undertakes routine monitoring of drinking water from various locations within its distribution system. For a copy of City’s Annual Drinking Water Quality Report for 2010, please contact City’s Engineering Department at Ph. # 604-294-7460. A copy of the report is available online at www.burnaby.ca.
An outbreak of mumps is underway across the Lower Mainland, affecting mainly young adults. The B.C. Centre For Disease Control says it’s the ﬁrst sizable mumps outrbreak since 2008 and extends across both the Vancouver Coastal and Fraser health regions. The centre urges the public to ensure their vaccinations are up to date. The BCCDC says many people in their late teens or early 20s haven’t had a second dose
of the MMR (measles, mumps and rubella) vaccine, which is recommended for anyone born after 1970. The virus attacks the glands but it can be considerably worse than the classic sore throat and swollen chipmunk cheeks typically experienced by children. Adults after puberty – particularly university students – can be hardest hit. Men can suffer severely swollen testicles that may shrink permanently when the infection ends, causing fertility problems. Salivary glands, ovaries, breasts and the pancreas can also be infected. In rare cases, brain inﬂam-
mation can kill. Mumps spreads through coughing and sneezing but also direct contact such as kissing or sharing utensils or water bottles. A third of people infected with mumps have no symptoms, another third experience cold-like symptoms, while the remaining third get tell-tale glandular inﬂammations. Those most at risk are people who have never been vaccinated or who were vaccinated long ago. Anyone who suspects they have mumps should phone a doctor or Health Link BC at 811 and avoid going to a clinic or ER where they may spread the virus to others.

No one punished for 2010 windowsmashing spree By Jeff Nagel BLACK PRESS
In a destructive spree through downtown Vancouver Feb. 13, protesters used newspaper boxes as battering rams, spray-painted vehicles and clashed with police.

Anti-Olympic rioters who smashed windows in downtown Vancouver during the 2010 Winter Games have mostly walked out of B.C. courts without so much as a slap on the wrist. Only a handful of the violent protesters were charged 16 months ago and even the accused ringleader has since escaped court-imposed punishment. Guillaume JosephMarc Beaulieu, 27, was charged with mischief over $5,000 for allegedly inciting vandalism and leading black-clad anarchists in a destructive spree through downtown Vancouver Feb. 13. Protesters used newspaper boxes as battering rams, spraypainted vehicles and clashed with police. But Crown counsel spokesman Neil McKenzie said the mischief charge against Beaulieu was stayed by prosecutors Jan. 5 after they decided there was little chance of conviction. â€œAlthough he apparently participated in the march, there was not any evidence he was personally involved in any violence or vandalism,â€? McKenzie said Tuesday. Nobody else was ever charged with actual vandalism from the incident, McKenzie said, adding most of the vandals who broke windows were masked and unidentiďŹ able. Other charges mainly stemmed from clashes with police. Lliam Arthur Brander, 27 of North Vancouver, was charged with assault but McKenzie said that charge was eventually stayed and dealt with through alternative justice measures. Willow Violet Louise Riley, 18, was also charged with assaulting a police ofďŹ cer. The trial was to have gone ahead March 3 but was postponed and the case has been repeatedly adjourned since then.

Logan Schuss scored six times to help the Delta Islanders swamp the Burnaby Lakers in their BC Junior A Lacrosse League game Sunday at Copeland Arena. Schuss was a one-man wrecking crew in the ﬁrst period, as he scored the Islanders’ ﬁrst four goals. Delta carried a 6-2 lead into the second period. By the time the middle frame was half over, the Lakers were down and out 12-3 after they gave up three
Juniors swamped straight shorthanded goals in 19 seconds as Delta’s Graeme Stewart sat out a minor penalty for high sticking. The Lakers were able to muster ﬁve goals in the third, three of them on the power play. But with Delta answering with three more goals of their own, it was far too little too late. Jackson Decker and Alex Millin each scored hat tricks for the Lakers. Decker also added four assists.

Burnaby Lakers player Chase Williams is checked by Nanaimo Timbermen defender Matt Wray on a scoring opportunity during Sunday’s senior A Western Lacrosse Association game at Nanaimo’s Frank Crane Arena. The game ended in an 11-11 tie.
Lakers ﬁt to be tied Burnaby squanders leads then scores tying goal with 15 seconds left in overtime The Burnaby Lakers took advantage of some confusion at the Nanaimo bench to tie the Timbermen 11-11 with 15 seconds left in overtime Sunday at Frank Crane Arena. With 30 seconds left on the clock and Nanaimo clinging to an 11-10 lead, the Lakers shot the ball into the corner. The Timbermen corralled it and just needed to run out the clock to claim their third victory of the season and climb past the Lakers in the WLA standings. But conﬂicting instructions barked from the bench led to a turnover and Burnaby tied it with a shot over Ray Hodgkinson’s shoulder into the top corner. “We didn’t run the play that we wanted

An 11-7 win over the Langley Thunder on Friday at Copeland Arena means they doubled their point total on the season, with three wins in eight games. Colton Clark had a goal and four assists to lead the attack for the Lakers, who led 4-2 at the end of the ﬁrst period and 6-3 going into the third.

Housing starts forecast to increase. CMHC foresees rising luxury homes sales as well. Housing starts will increase in British Columbia this year and next, according to the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation’s Housing Market Outlook report. The CMHC says that housing starts, including single-detached and multiple-family homes, are projected to total 26,400 units in 2011 and 29,000 in 2012. “The housing market outlook is similar to CMHC’s first quarter forecast, except for adjustments to the existing home price outlook,” says CMHC’s B.C. Regional Economist Carol Frketich. “Mortgage loan interest rates, which will remain low by historic standards, together with stable employment and strong population growth, will support the resale and new home markets in 2011 and 2012.”
“An increase in higher-end detached home sales in the first quarter in some areas of Greater Vancouver will push the average MLS price up 14 per cent in 2011, to $770,000,” says Robyn Adamache, Senior Market Analyst for Vancouver with the CMHC. According to a release from the CMHC, price increases recorded in Vancouver, Richmond and West Vancouver are higher than anticipated, and this will continue to contribute to higher prices and greater demand for high-end homes in those areas. “Greater Vancouver accounts for almost half of MLS sales in the province, and a rising share of single detached home sales, which tend to have higher prices, as well as an increasing proportion of sales in higher priced areas of Greater Vancouver,” says Frketich.
Vancouver’s SoMa beckons with Uptown by Colin Oswin
Want to join one of Vancouver’s fun and funky neighbourhoods? Developer Concord Pacific may have created the perfect place in Uptown. Located at East 12th and Kingsway, Uptown drops you right in the middle of the hip South Main area. Grant Murray, vice-president of sales with Concord Pacific, says South Main has been upgraded in a big way over the past few years. The area has seen lots of businesses move in after they left the nearby Cambie corridor during construction of the Canada Line, adding a combination of practical amenities and hipster flavour. “Main has gone a long way in upgrading itself,” he says. Uptown is a 10-floor, 102-unit building, featuring a variety of different apartment suites. Layouts range from one- or two-bedrooms with added dens or flex rooms. Suite sizes run from 560 to 955 square feet, not including balconies, and ceilings in most units are 8-foot-8. Murray says suites at Uptown
average $545 per square foot – a far cry from the $700-$800 range typically found right downtown. “It’s really great to have more room for the same buck,” he says. Murray added that the units, what he describes as “really sensible, goodsized suites,” act as a great investment for prospective landlords because tenants tend to stay longer in larger apartments. Uptown is certainly not hurting for amazing features. Outside, residents will find stunning views – especially looking downtown and toward the North Shore mountains. Every suite includes an open balcony or deck. Murray says homes on floors six to 10 have particularly spectacular views, but residents on lower floors can still get a chance to enjoy the sunset by venturing up to the building’s green
rooftop terrace. The rooftop terrace is just one of several amenity areas in the building. The others include a gym on the ground floor as well as a kitchenette/ meeting room on the second floor with a nearby play area for the kids. Another play area is available on the 10th floor. Meanwhile inside, kitchens feature high-gloss laminate cabinetry and
under-cabinet lighting. Laminate wood-look flooring is standard throughout the main living areas for a modern touch, and ensuite bathrooms include a textured tile tub and shower surround with elegant glass tile accents. Homes at Uptown start at around $269,000. For more information, visit www. moveuptown.ca or call 604-899-8800.

Concord Paciﬁc’s Uptown is right in the middle of Vancouver’s hip South Main area, and includes beautiful views of the North Shore mountains from some suites (above). Kitchens at Uptown include quartz-stone countertops and a mosaic tile backsplash (top), among several other amazing features.
