What’s old is new again for BC Biomedical Laboratories in New Westminster. The company was originally founded in 1958 at 403 Sixth Street. That lab has been at 625 Fifth Ave. since 1967 and recently had extensive renovations. It is now celebrating with a grand re-opening at the location. BC Biomedical has grown to 45 patient service centres across the Lower Mainland.
New Westminster city council approved Monday the school district’s application to waive the requirement for underground on-street power lines when it builds the proposed St. Mary’s elementary. City engineering staff had recommended the request be denied to remain consistent with what all new development is required to do. However, the Ministry of Education indicated it would not pay the $300,000 needed to do the job because it wasn’t an educational expense.

Keeping track of good old heritage City to research New Westminster’s oldest homes By Grant Granger NEWSLEADER
lmost 20 years ago, Forrest Day’s wife Gail was waiting for her daughter’s music lesson to ﬁnish when she ﬂipped through a publication that contained the story of The Clarkson House built in 1862 on Fourth Street in New Westminster. It told about how the huge home was eventually divided into two parts. There was a picture of the original home and it began to dawn on her that they were living in one half of the house which they had purchased in 1977. The weren’t sure where the second house was but it became apparent it was the home right out the back window, a house they also now own that faces Pine Street. They found cavities in the homes that confused workers, but eventually by looking at old pictures they realized an inner chimney had been taken down. On another occasion, roofers became perplexed at the hole they found that didn’t ﬁt. The homes were like interlocking puzzle pieces. But the Days didn’t know that when they bought their home 34 years ago. “We had no idea of the history of that particular area,” said Day. The Clarkson homes, divided when
Forrest Day owns two of the oldest houses in New Westminster, which used to be one house before it was split up onto two back-to-back lots.
the Interurban tram came along, are the oldest in New Westminster, predating Irving House by three years. On Monday, the city gave heritage planner Julie Schueck and the community heritage commission the goahead to do research on the city’s 17 oldest homes, those built before 1890. “It’s part of a larger plan to reach out to the community,” said Schueck, who is looking forward to diving into the archives and hearing “cool” stories from New Westminster residents about the homes. “You never know what you’re going to ﬁnd. It’s exciting.” As an example, Schueck pointed to the next oldest home, a little house
at 219 E. Columbia St., built in 1877. It was owned by Paul and Lucy Murray, who would bring their produce in from the Murrayville area of Langley to sell. They built the home when they decided they would prefer to spend winters in New West rather than being out in the wilderness. Nine of the 17 are not on the city’s heritage register, but council has asked staff to take their research and approach the homeowners to get them listed. “There’s a fear by some homeowners that it will affect property value and the ability to sell, and that’s not true,” said Schueck. “Some of them really don’t know what it means.”
She said the heritage register provides guidelines and support to the property owners, and is a planning tool for city planners. There are also economic beneﬁts because the homes automatically go on a national register that can attract visitors interested in seeing historical homes. “I see it as a wonderful resource. Every time they put it on the register it shows why it’s important and there’s a little bit of background that they can access,” said Schueck. “If they’re selling, it’s a way to identify that it’s important to the community.” Although there are 1,516 homes at least 80 years old, only 55 are listed on the city’s heritage inventory. Still, Schueck said, that doesn’t mean many of the homes not on the registry aren’t well taken care of. “We’re lucky in New Westminster because homeowners take a lot of pride in their homes so they’re all basically doing the right things,” said Schueck. “There’s no pressure to put a house on to the register. At this point it’s just getting the word out.” Recently the city put on workshops for homeowners on the register that were well attended. There were many requests from homeowners that weren’t on the register, but the city saw the workshops as a way to give back to those who were on the register. The result was the addition of four homes on the register which “thrilled” Schueck. PLEASE SEE BEING ON REGISTER ON A8
JUSTICE FOR THE HEARING IMPAIRED Burnaby-New Westminster MP Peter Julian has reintroduced a private members bill that would allow those with a hearing disability to receive a disability tax credit. Currently the degree of hearing impairment is assessed by having a listening device present. Julian’s bill would eliminate that standard. It would also revise the language for support of the hearing loss from requiring it being from a person “familiar” with the applicant to “another” person. The call for the May 2 election earlier this year meant the original bill did not get voted on. Julian received support for his bill from the Canadian Hard of Hearing Association, Voice for Hearing Impaired Children, the Canadian Association of Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists, and the Canadian Academy of Audiology.

Board hiding behind survey on lunch-hour issue: Cook Trustee questions who is running the district

Trustee Casey Cook says instead of making a minor adjustment that would have beneﬁted New Westminster schoolchildren, the board of education chose to hide behind a survey. At Tuesday’s board meeting, trustees voted to approve staff’s proposal to conduct a survey on the length of lunch breaks in elementary and middle schools. A motion by Cook to extend the eating time by ﬁve minutes for the 2011-12 school year was defeated after the board split the vote. “It was not the result we were looking for,” said Cook. “I question our ability to interpret surveys correctly.” District parent advisory council vice-president MaryAnn Mortensen has been calling on the district to extend the eating period at most New Westminster schools beyond the 15 minutes currently allowed. She has provided what she
believes is evidence an extension would beneﬁt the students’ health and education. “To me it exempliﬁes how the needs of our children are not being put ﬁrst in this district,” said Mortensen. Cook feels it would have been “low-hanging fruit” for the board to make the move because it would have made a signiﬁcant impact for students. “There’s an issue of who is going to run this district and who is going to take ownership of this district,” said Cook. “It really was an issue of professional autonomy versus the health and education of children. It was such a minor, minor adjustment that would have been done very easily ... We need to do as we say we want to do and that’s put the children at the centre of the decision making.” Cook’s motion was supported by fellow trustees Lisa Graham and Jim Goring. Board chair Michael Ewen, James Janzen and Lori Watt opposed it. Trustee Brent Atkinson was absent because he was in China for the graduation ceremonies for the district’s business company programs.
“To me it exemplifies how the needs of our children are not being put first in this district.”
While admitting Mortensen’s collection of research and literature is compelling, Ewen said it would be wrong to arbitrarily impose the change. Not consulting with staff would be a complete change in the way the board has been doing business in the 30 years he’s served on it. “There has been no discussion at all with our staff,” said Ewen. “It would be setting a really dangerous precedent.” Mortensen said since she raised the issue school eight weeks ago, administrators have met with district staff on a weekly basis. Lunch break is a topic that could have easily been raised during those meetings. “For it to be said that staff hasn’t been consulted, yeah, they have,” said Mortensen. Since he wasn’t present, Atkinson can bring the issue back to the table, but the board is not scheduled to meet again until September. However, it may resurface sooner than that, said Cook. “We’ll see what happens. We’re not done with this issue,” said Cook. “It’s very clear we need to make changes.

Pedestrian accidents down 20 per cent in New West Most incidents occurred at Uptown intersections: ICBC By Grant Granger NEWSLEADER
Walking has become 20 per cent safer in New Westminster according to statistics provided by ICBC to the city. There were 188 trafﬁc accidents involving pedestrians in the city between 2006 and 2010 compared to 235 that occurred from 2001 to 2005. Uptown was the most dangerous area in the last ﬁve years, with seven pedestrian accidents at both Sixth Avenue and Eighth Street, and Sixth and Sixth, while there were six at Sixth Street and Eighth Avenue. Rounding out the top ﬁve were Carnarvon and Eighth Street (six accidents) and Royal Avenue and Eighth Street (ﬁve). In the previous ﬁve years, Sixth Avenue and Eighth Street led the way with 12 accidents while Fifth Avenue and Sixth Street had 10. They were followed by 12th Street and Eighth Avenue (7), Fifth Avenue and Eighth Street (6) and Sixth and Sixth (6). An engineering report to council noted Uptown has “high density land uses, signiﬁcant pedestrian activities and complex trafﬁc movements ... Discussion with the city’s trafﬁc consultant, Opus International, suggests that in recognition of the intense pedestrian activity
in the Uptown area the number of accidents is generally within the range of the norm. Of the top ﬁve locations in the 2006-2010 period, three of the locations are included in the 2011 intersection improvement construction program.” The report said the city is working with ICBC and the school district on doing intersection reviews for McBride Boulevard and Sixth Avenue, and McBride and East Columbia Street. The city has also heard safety concerns about East Eighth Avenue, but the ICBC stats show there were only three pedestrian accidents at three different intersections on that stretch in the last ﬁve years. “Although East Eighth Avenue is a busy collector route carrying about 20,000 vehicles per day, [the statistics show] that pedestrian accidents are not that frequent,” said the report. It also pointed out there were 58 other locations in the city with only one pedestrian accident and 42 with more than one. However, despite those numbers, staff is currently assessing crossing needs for three spots along East Eighth and will submit a report to council. Pedestrian crossing enhancements for Eighth and Buchanan are already planned for 2011. The ICBC statistics will be reviewed by the city’s neighbourhood trafﬁc advisory committee and bicycle pedestrian advisory committee.

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

Honour House will provide restorative shelter to ﬁrst responders who selflessly go the distance for us every day of their professional lives, risking their personal safety by taking action on our behalf. My own family represents four generations of ﬁrst responders in the armed forces, paramedical services, police services and ﬁre department. My father returned from the Second World War 100 per cent disabled and, paradoxically, became a dispatch ofﬁcer for the ﬁre department in Saskatoon. My niece, an advanced paramedic, suffered what might have been a career-ending injury, had she not been wearing a Kevlar vest she had purchased herself a week earlier. Another niece, employed by Ontario Provincial Police, attended an undetailed rural call that left her rookie partner wounded and her own emotional recovery protracted. Most profoundly, my brother, Rick, with whom I was reunited with the help of adoption authorities, served with special forces in Vietnam. He is a decorated veteran with four Purple Hearts and the Military Cross. Although he built a life for himself, he remains haunted by his history. His physical injuries mended but his heart in many ways is broken. Even his happiness in ﬁnally ﬁnding his biological family was eclipsed by deep unhealed wounds. We all bear the consequences of the sacriﬁces valiant ﬁrst responders make for us. Each of our lives will at some point come into contact with these mediators of fate and the accidents that draw us together. So you see, we are

A shameful response Vancouver has completely overreacted to the Stanley Cup riot. 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, and unfortunately, many of those involved were teenagers. A rash of websites have cropped up 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 this, 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. Nathan Kotylak is only named in his criminal reports because he speciﬁcally 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. Make no mistake, this is bullying when you release private information for the purpose of ridiculing and harassing an individual. 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 city.

Being on register doesn’t handcuff owners CONTINUED FROM PAGE
Being on the register doesn’t prevent the homeowner from altering a home, or even demolishing it, said Schueck. At the same council meeting, an owner of one of the homes, 832 Royal Ave., built in 1887, was asking council to remove it from the heritage register. The developer of a project next door approached the owner about possible demolition of the house. The heritage commission reviews all building alterations and demolition permit applications for properties on the register. A staff report said the home is the oldest residential house in Downtown, one of a few that survived the 1898 ﬁre. The report pointed out that since it was built before 1900 the age of the house would trigger a review of any demolition permit application whether
it was on the register or not. The report admitted the impact of the BrickStone Walk townhouse development being constructed next door is signiﬁcant. In a letter to the city, the owner pointed out the home has been entirely remodeled inside, with very few heritage artifacts. Highrises also surround the property. For Day, demolition has never been considered an option for either of his homes, or for the 26-suite Carleton apartment complex built in 1925 next door to the houses. “It’s out of the question. They are nice old homes and with refurbishment [they] have been reasonably well preserved,” said Day. That’s the attitude the city hopes to foster with the move it made this week. firstname.lastname@example.org

You Asked... Q. I want to do something special to remember my son. Any ideas? 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.

Mumps virus back with new outbreak By Jeff Nagel BLACK PRESS
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 inﬂammation 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 call a doctor or Health Link BC at 811 and avoid going to a clinic or ER where they may spread the virus to others.

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.

Other pollutants have been largely kept in check: report By Jeff Nagel BLACK PRESS
Air quality warnings issued by Metro Vancouver are increasingly due to out-ofregion wildﬁres rather than local pollution, according to a new report. Two air quality advisories issued last year in August lasted a combined total of seven days and both resulted from smoke wafting here from distant ﬁres, noted Metro’s report on air quality in 2010. That ﬁts a trend of the “increasing inﬂuence of wildﬁre particulate” triggering warnings here, it said. Historically, it has been ground-level ozone, not ﬁres, that has degraded air quality in the summer and sparked advisories. Particulate levels stayed within a Canada-wide standard, but exceeded Metro Vancou-
ver’s own more stringent target maximum at times during last August. Metro runs 26 monitoring stations across the Lower Mainland to track air conditions and determine when public warnings are needed. Ozone levels stayed within both the Canada-wide standard and the Metro target at all times last year. That’s an improvement because ozone had exceeded the Metro target at least once in each of the previous nine years. Over the past two decades, the report said, detected levels of most major air pollutants have fallen. It says emissions of carbon monoxide and nitrogen dioxide have been reduced – despite continued population growth in the Lower Mainland – through better vehicle emission standards and the AirCare program, while lower levels of sulphur in vehicle fuels has cut sulphur dioxide levels. The shutdown of several reﬁneries and lowered emis-
sions from cement factories also cut sulphur dioxide levels. While peak and average levels of carbon monoxide and nitrogen dioxide have continued to decline in recent years, sulphur dioxide and particulate levels have been relatively ﬂat. Cutting ozone is a challenge because it forms when volatile organic compounds – often from vegetation, including farms – reacts with nitrogen oxides on hot sunny days. Peak ozone levels are down from the 1980s and early 1990s, but average levels have risen slightly. The report cautions levels of pollutants can deviate from depending on local conditions. A two-year study led by UBC researchers aims to determine more ways to cut ozone. Metro is also aiming to reduce particulate from offroad diesel machinery. The region is imposing new fees on excavators, loaders and similar equipment with heavily polluting older engines to put ﬁnancial pressure on their owners to clean up.

Accused leader of Olympic vandals walked free
By Jeff Nagel
Ready Pick & U-Pick NO SPRAY Sweetest Berries ON BERRIES in Town!
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 Joseph-Marc Beaulieu, 27, was charged with mischief over $5,000 for allegedly inciting vandalism and leading blackclad 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. “Although he apparently participated in the march, there was not any evidence he was personally involved in any violence or vandalism,” 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 unidentiﬁable. Other charges mainly stemmed from clashes with police. The court outcomes may be far different with the rioters and looters charged in last week’s Stanley Cup hockey riot. Police have many more images of rioters with their faces unmasked, McKenzie said. Even so, he cautioned, photos and video may not amount to sufﬁcient evidence by themselves for conviction and will have to be weighed carefully by ﬁrst police and then Crown.

a quicker and cheaper way to deal with many of these cases, and whatâ€™s more, victims and rioters could face each other and hash out resolutions that are meaningful and satisfactory. Restorative justice is an alternative model of meting out justice and a local proponent believes it could be used to promote healing after the devastating post-game riot last week. â€œThis would pro-
mote accountability, it would provide a just response to crime, it would allow the victim to speak their side of the story and for the offender to realize how their actions have impacted the victim,â€? said Gurinder Mann, executive director of Communities Embracing Restorative Action (CERA), which serves New Westminster, the Tri-Cities, Anmore and Belcarra. Mann said programs such as CERAâ€™s, which

facilitate conferences between individuals causing harm (mostly youth between the ages of 12 and 18) and their victims would work well for youthful rioters who have shown remorse and who donâ€™t have any criminal record. The process is voluntary but is usually referred by police or Crown counsel, and because it is facilitated by volunteers and takes just a month to get a resolution, can be cheaper and quicker than the court process. â€œIt would deďŹ nitely be less expensive for the court system,â€? Mann said, adding it would work to heal the rift between rioters and the rest of the community by addressing the harm and the anger that was a swift response to the riot. â€œTheyâ€™re angry, theyâ€™re sad, theyâ€™re dismayed about whatâ€™s happened and they want to see the individual held accountable. They want answers, they want to know why the individual acted the way they did.â€? he said. Such a process could bring rioters together with community representatives or individual victims to work out a resolution that addresses the harm that was caused, Mann said. â€œAt a time like this, Iâ€™m sure there are many communities that want to be a part of this and want their voices heard. It could be an effective tool, it would allow the community to express their side of the story.â€? Resolutions could range from an apology letter to paying for damages but it would be up to both the victim and the person causing the harm to come up with the plan of action. CERA has been operating here for more than a decade, and has handled more than 300 cases, 96% of which have resulted in a successful resolution. Mann said the group has seen an increase in referrals from the Crown and police in recent months, and last year handled approximately 40 cases. newsroom@ newwestnewsleader.com

The Salmonbellies built a 6-0 cushion in the ﬁrst period and needed much of it after Nanaimo outscored the home team 5-2 in the second. The teams each scored twice in the third. Again, New West was outshot, 52-42, in the rough-and-tumble affair in which the Salmonbellies spent 43 minutes in the penalty box on 17 infractions and the Timbermen were whistled 15 times for 39 minutes. Kevin Crowley led the Salmonbellies’ attack with two goals and three assists. Gajic and Jordan McBride also scored twice.

Cliff Smith matched that for the Salmonbellies less than two minutes later with a power play goal with Coquitlam two men short. Smith’s third and fourth goals of the game, 1:06 apart midway through the third, broke the game open. Ilija Gajic’s second of the game put an exclamation on the ﬁnal score. Smith added two assists to his four goals to lead the Salmonbellies, while Jeff Zywicki ﬁnished the night with a goal and ﬁve assists. Gajic had a four-point night. The win came on the heels of

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.
