EDITOR’S NOTE

WELCOMING BACK

SUMMER FUN

STEPHANIE MACDONALD EDITOR New Home + Condo Guide EMAIL: stephanie.macdonald@nexthome.ca

+

It’s exciting to see our province moving out of the pandemic, and people are gearing up for a fun summer reuniting with friends and family, and even possibly travelling to other places in Canada and the United States by August. This gradual reopening will soon see our immigration patterns getting back to normal levels, and this should exert a continued pressure on the supply of new homes in the province, and particularly Metro Vancouver. Fifth Avenue’s Jamie Squires has an insightful story this issue that explains how this pent-up new resident demand could mitigate the usual summer lull in the real estate market. A lot of this demand is going to be focussed on the Fraser Valley, and keeping this region affordable and livable means having an effective transportation plan, explains Susan Boyce, in her feature about the UDI’s transportation seminar. Finally, since “wellness” has been the 2020 buzzword in terms of residential buildings and amenities, we take a look at the different interpretations of the word, and how some of our local developers are creating homes and spaces that will promote the health and well-being of residents and their communities in the coming years. Please read on, because we have a magazine full of great advice, interesting perspectives and amazing options for your perfect next home. Thanks for letting us be part of your homebuying journey!

COVER STORY

THE STANDARD ANTHEM BRINGS AN EXCITING NEW TOWER TO METROTOWN Right now, Metrotown is being reimagined as Burnaby’s new downtown, with an energy and urban core that will soon rival downtown Vancouver. Planning is underway for the redevelopment of Metrotown Mall, the formation of five acres of parks and plazas, a new convention centre, and much more, creating one of the 18  New Home + Condo Guide  |  June 12–26, 2021

With the imminent completion of their ambitious Station Square master-planned community (in partnership with Beedie), Anthem is continuing their investment in Metrotown with The Standard; a new vision of luxury and convenience that will be the

first in a series of three new Anthem communities coming to this vibrant and growing urban neighbourhood. Station Square, Anthem’s distinctive contribution to Metrotown’s evolution, began with five residential towers. Encompassing retail, office, and residential spaces, the community is considered one of

North America’s most successful developments to date. From Price Smart Foods to WeWork and Best Buy, Station Square is made even more lively by the completion of Restaurant Row along Silver Drive – a pedestrian friendly street lined with restaurants and cafes, including Cactus Club and internationally acclaimed Tendon Kohaku from Tokyo. Representing the best attributes of Station Square, The Standard is the next evolution of Anthem’s commitment to building great space and progressive new communities. The future of Metrotown will

include a performing arts centre, art gallery, and 1.7 million square feet of new office, civic and education space. In addition, Metrotown’s new shopping district will feature a traditional high street, with pedestrianfriendly shopping, eateries, walkways and bicycle paths. At 43 storeys, The Standard will be an elegant and significant early addition to the residential district of this burgeoning neighbourhood. Located central to the Skytrain, Central Park and Metropolis at Metrotown, a home at The Standard will put you in the centre of it all, surrounded

by clean, contemporary design that complements your personal style. The Standard will include 424 homes, including at-grade townhomes, designed by renowned architectural firm GBL Architects, with interiors by CHIL Interior Design. Clean, timeless, yet contemporary architecture with elegant white linear banding will create a beacon for the everchanging skyline of Metrotown, and will include a public art display created by internationally acclaimed Korean artist, Kim Sooja, at the entrance of a concierge-handled lobby. Inside, The Standard showcases modern sophistication with neutral palettes to make your own personal touches stand out. Chef-inspired kitchens feature engineered quartz countertops, state-of-the-art integrated European appliances, and dramatic marble-look tile. Residents will enjoy over 22,000 square feet of carefully-curated indoor and outdoor amenities that will be top of class. Anthem’s dedication to Burnaby has spanned over 20 years and includes almost 160,000 square feet of commercial real estate and over 3,900 homes that are complete, under construction or in development.

Metrotown is the largest of the four Burnaby official town centres in its southwest quadrant. Four decades ago, Metrotown wasn’t the office hub, shopping destination, and development hot spot that it is today.

wonderful dining, fantastic parks; Metrotown seems to have it all. mEET ThE NEIGhbOURS

If you are a fashionista, you came to the right neighbourhood. If you love the night life, ditto. Metrotown is renowned as much for being a shopping Mecca as it is for its arts and culture. This enclave is home to more than 500 shops … this is not a typo.

You’ll find a large immigrant population here, with nearly 40 per cent whose first language isn’t English. You’ll see families, young hipsters and Baby Boomers wandering about. The average household income is just under $50,000. With the boom in upscale condo towers going up here, it is safe to assume that will change in the ensuing years.

Metrotown is in the process of being redeveloped into the downtown centre of Burnaby. Metropolis Metrotown Mall will be revamped into a huge mixed residential, office and retail complex, and will include large projects from Concord Pacific, Intracorp and Anthem. Currently on the pre-sale market, Concord Metrotown will soon be home to the tallest building in Metro Vancouver, and Anthem’s The Standard will continue their legacy that started with the recently-completed Station Square master-planned complex. This diverse cultural, dining and shopping mecca has Skytrain access to the rest of Metro Vancouver, a lively restaurant row and much happening in the future, so keep an eye out for new development announcements.

Latimer Heights by Vesta Properties is a trend setting, 73-acre transit-oriented village in Langley

Shaping the ForeSeeable Future A uDi FraSer Valley Discussion About trAnsportAtion by susAn M boyce An annual tradition in the Fraser Valley, this year’s forecast panel was a stellar one bringing together stakeholders from three municipalities plus two experts from south of the border with Gordon Price, Canadian urban planner and former politician, once again moderating the event. The New Big CiTy

Patrick Klassen, community planning manager with the City of Surrey, was clearly proud that his municipality remains the province’s fastest growing urban center and is firmly on track to eclipse the City of Vancouver in 26  New Home + Condo Guide  |  June 12–26, 2021

total population by the 2040s. He’s also excited by Surrey’s leadership role in meeting the escalating demand for transitoriented developments (TOD). And he stressed TODs south of the Fraser are a different breed from the high-density, glass and concrete towers that dominated the downtown Vancouver landscape — a style of architecture he believes served an important purpose but is beginning to create a degree of visual monotony. Instead, he pointed to areas like Fleetwood and the Scott Road Corridor on the border with Delta where densification is gentler —

typically six storeys, an architectural form he believes will become the building block of the future, flanked by two- or three-storey townhouses — and where round-oriented, frequent transit networks (FTN) provide reliable bus service that’s no more than 15 minutes apart. Since a transit network based on buses can be easily modified or expanded to meet residents’ changing needs, he predicted Surrey will also be a leader in advancing yet another, exciting trend, the 15-minute urban village where everything residents need to live, work, and play is within walking distance.


FrequeNCy aNd reliaBiliTy

James Klukas, deputy director of community planning and development with the City of Delta, indicated Delta will continue to work closely with its neighbour to the east, fine tuning long-term plans that will raise the transit bar even higher along the Scott Road Corridor. Pre-pandemic, this transit workhorse carried an average of 23,000 passengers per day making it the busiest route south of the Fraser and seventh busiest in all of Metro Vancouver. In 2020, the R6 Rapid Bus launched connecting directly to the Scott Road SkyTrain Station. Klukas’ goal: increase speed and frequency by a whopping 20 percent — meaning passengers can expect service every 10 minutes or less. And like Klassen, he emphasised that six-story development will likely continue gaining traction as a significant architectural form that blends efficiency with livability. adapTiNg To aN oNliNe eCoNomy

Amelia Bowden, planner with the City of Maple Ridge, didn’t shy away from the fact her city is still a car-oriented stronghold of single-family living. Although the last few years have seen densification start along corridors that extend out from the original city centre, many of these multi-family developments front

directly onto busy main roads like Dewdney Trunk and Lougheed Highway, something she’d like to see change. But Maple Ridge does have an abundance of space for business parks and light industrial. As economies worldwide transition to online shopping, the skyrocketing demand for warehouse locations shows no sign of slowing. And this spells employment opportunities. The city has already implemented a rapid bus line connecting directly to the Evergreen Line for both residential neighbourhoods and along the new employment corridors servicing these industrial nodes. There are also plans to develop an extensive greenway with parks and conservation areas. This third connection route would allow car travel but be more geared to pedestrians and cyclists, and would create lively, public spaces to encourage these eco-friendly forms of commute. SouTherN ouTlook

Surprisingly, Metro Seattle has poured over $50 billion into a highly functional, integrated transit system that includes 100 kilometres of new rapid transit track linking downtown with bedroom communities like Bellevue and Kenmore, yet remains predominantly a car culture. Sarah Lovell, transit-oriented communities program lead with

Wilder Crossing by Infinity Properties

King County Metro, noted that King County owns 23 multi-level parkades and manages more than 19,000 parking stalls in other structures — stalls she said that are always full. However, Juan Calaf, senior land use planner with Sound Transit, estimated by 2024 new TODs will add some 3,000 new homes to the market. Both stressed there is a collaborative element to development of both innovative transit options and holistic housing forms that consider pedestrian and bikes trails as part of the landscape. lookiNg ahead

There is, perhaps, one silver lining to a pandemic that shuttered the world for well over a year. As everyone hunkers down to minimize the spread, people are realizing there are benefits beyond the obvious of being able to live, work, and play in their own neighbourhood. TODs and the 15-minute community concepts are becoming an accepted norm, as are commuting on two wheels rather than four and rediscovering the joys of home cooking. Looking ahead, as our lifestyles continue to change and evolve, we’ll be right there to experience the best of this new outlook. Because it takes more than a virus to shutter the residential construction industry’s creativity.

WORLD OF WELLNESS A POST-PANDEMIC FOCUS ON “WELLNESS” IN BUILDINGS AND AMENITIES by STEPHANIE MACDONALD

Working from home, moving away from the city, getting a puppy, after the last year there have been many new lifestyle trends that have affected what we want from our homes. One of the most evident has been the inclination

Southlands Farm 30  New Home + Condo Guide  |  June 12–26, 2021

towards “wellness”, which makes sense, when you think of it as the opposite of “sickness”. But what does “wellness” actually mean in terms of your home, your community and the amenities in a multi-family building?

Lorne Segal, President of Kingswood Properties explains, “It’s no longer enough that having an amenity room with a fridge, stove and space large enough for a small birthday party is sufficient or compelling to buyers. As needs and wants in the market expand and shift, it’s important for community builders to develop amenity packages and spaces that contribute meaningfully to wellness in all of its forms, including: health, activation, excitement, gathering, relaxation — and sustainability”. Belford Properties has envisioned a whole collection of residential projects built around the principal of wellness. Revive is the first of four communities within Belford Properties’ Wellness Collection, founded on the belief that wellness matters and true fulfilment is rooted in the home. “Revive is the first and only cold-


formed steel-frame townhome development in Vancouver,” says Jacky Chan, president of BakerWest Real Estate, adding that the air conditioning and filtration system in every suite is the highest residential grade available. Revive also has robust water purification systems. Each unit has filtered water throughout — even in the showers — plus a four-stage filter for drinking water. For Concord Pacific, wellness means cleaner, more efficient air filtration, and safer communal spaces, which they have called “Biospace principles”. As more people are working from home, and more conscious about their health since the pandemic, Biospace in Concord Metrotown (and all of their future projects) features air filtration, touchless entries, Smart home automation system and 100% EV Parking. Foster Martin in sunny White Rock has a master plan which includes White Rock Commons: a welcoming and tranquil public

plaza linking the three towers, with 57,000 square feet of offices and retailers with a focus on health and wellness. Coming soon to West Coquitlam, Jinju is a new community of elegant one- to three-bedroom concrete homes from Anthem, where wellness lays the foundation for the curated collection of amenity spaces designed to set a tone of balance and sanctuary. In terms of amenities, wellness can mean anything from exercise to relaxation to meditation. Gryphon House in Kerrisdale goes a step farther, with the help of a “Royal Curator” to connect residents with physical training and spa therapy, they can schedule an infrared sauna experience through their in-house smart home system. Recognizing health and wellness as a significant component of the art of living, Gryphon House includes an elaborate list of wellness amenities including a two-level gym, a private massage room and an expansive outdoor patio.

Back at Concord Metrotown, Sky Park will soon be home to the Lower Mainland’s most astonishing collection of amenities, including private gardens, indoor and outdoor amenities, and three carefullycurated ‘spheres’ circled by a 400-metre running loop. The Wellness Sphere has an iconic conservatory, outdoor sports court, pet spa, dog park, yoga lawn and a state-of- the-art fitness centre. Bosa’s Central Park House in Burnaby features a multi-level amenity pavilion overlooking Central Park providing an environment of rest and retreat. Thoughtfully designed, the amenities include an exclusive wellness room, equipped for yoga, meditation, and barre ballet. There’s also a heated lap pool and hot tub surrounded by comfortable seating areas, and a fullyequipped fitness centre complete with state-of-the-art equipment. Kingswood’s newest project,

it’s important for community builders to develop amenity packages and spaces that contribute meaningfully to wellness in all of its forms, including: health, activation, excitement, gathering, relaxation — and sustainability

Redbridge, is a multi-phase master-planned condo and townhome community in Squamish, with an exciting amenity building called Base Camp™. “Wellness is central to the experience at Redbridge,” says Lorne Segal. Base Camp is a

Southlands Farm 32  New Home + Condo Guide  |  June 12–26, 2021

20,000-plus square foot facility focused on health, wellness, creativity and sustainability,and includes a yoga studio; Zen garden; co-working office space, games room, infrared red-light therapy room, sunset terrace, outdoor kitchen, chef’s kitchen, great room, gear maintenance room, a Scandinavian Spa that rivals the best offerings in Vancouver and Whistler — and Canada’s first Eco-Movement Lab™ fitness centre. “Our trademarked fitness centre will have zero emissions impact on the environment. In particular, the treadmills in the space, when in use, will contribute power to the facility. We feel that Base Camp represents the ideal amenity package for a community like Squamish that is rooted in adventure, health and nature”. Sometimes wellness is about getting outside, whether it’s hitting the beach or the trails, or having direct access to healthy local food. “Contrasting the typical amenities of gyms, pools and rec rooms offered by many buildings and complexes, Southlands

offers natural, community-based amenities,” says Century Group’s Sean Hodgins. “Allotment gardens, a volunteer-run flower garden, bike paths and electric bike rentals, an outdoor seasonal farmers market with fresh, local produce — these encourage people to spend time outdoors and connect with one another.” Southlands also features plenty of green space and access to Boundary Bay. As walkability is at the core of Southlands, walking and cycling connect the community to Boundary Bay, Centennial Beach and downtown Tsawwassen, “making it easy for residents to incorporate fresh air and healthy outdoor recreational activities into their lifestyle”. It’s clear the concept of wellness can have many forms, and people can choose the interpretation that makes the most sense for themselves and their homes. It’s good to see that local developers are listening and responsive to the needs of homebuyers, and hopefully this will lead to healthier and happier communities going into the future.

ADVICE ADVICE || MORTGAGE INDUSTRY INSIDER MINUTE

JUNE 1ST MORTGAGE RULE CHANGES

HOW MUCH CAN YOU BORROW NOW? ALISA ARAGON-LLOYD

As expected, the Office of the Superintendent of Financial Institutions (OFSI) confirmed that it will move ahead with the proposed new stress test, which, it was announced in April, would affect any uninsured mortgages for anyone that is buying a property with more than 20 per cent down payment, or anyone refinancing their mortgage. However, it was not expected the Department of Finance to follow OFSI’s lead and apply the new stress test to insured mortgages, affecting anyone buying a property with less than 20 per cent down payment, and are required to have mortgage default insurance. This means that when an applying for a new mortgage, regardless if the mortgage is insured or uninsurable, borrowers will now have to qualify (show 40  New Home + Condo Guide  |  June 12–26, 2021

that they can afford the payments) based on the higher of the contract rate (the rate that you will be paying) plus two per cent or a new floor rate of 5.25 per cent, previously at 4.79 per cent. The government that regulates mortgages are concerned with the heating housing market and this is one way to slow down the market. There are other ways that can slow down the market, such as an increase in interest rates, however, that will have a negative impact on the overall economy. WHAT DOES THIS MEAN TO YOU?

This means that the biggest impact to you, will be on the amount that you will be able to qualify for. The increase of the new stress test, this will decrease the borrowing power by approximately four per cent to 4.5 per cent. For example, prior to the change a borrower could qualify to purchase a for home for $735,000 by putting 20 per cent down payment, and with the new stress test the borrower would qualify for a home of a purchase price of $700,000.

To put it in perspective, the B-20 stress test that was implemented in January 2019 which required borrowers to qualify at the higher of either the five-year posted rate or the contract rate plus two per cent, their buying power was reduced by 22 per cent. With these new mortgage rule changes, it’s going to be even more important now to talk a Mortgage Expert, so we can assist you with our expertise and guidance as there are many differences amongst all lenders. We can ensure that you get the best lender based on your individual needs. Alisa Aragon-Lloyd obtained her Mortgage License from UBC, and has been helping her clients since 2011.

PANDEMIC SAVINGS ARE UPPING BUYERS’ DOWN PAYMENT PLANS: BMO

SAVING FOR A DOWN PAYMENT: WHAT YOU NEED TO SACRIFICE

Prospective homebuyers will often have to make some lifestyle changes in order to save enough funds for a down payment. But, how much do you really need to sacrifice? Ratehub.ca, a financial product comparison website, conducted a study to see how everyday luxuries impact your savings. SO, WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO GIVE UP?

Many of us love the finer things in life, but the costs of these luxuries add up. For example, a specialty beverage at Starbucks costs an average of $4; takeout meals cost approximately $15; every Uber ride you take will amount to about $16.40; brunch costs approximately $25; and nights out will set you back $65. Here is how long it would take you to save for a down payment if you were to redirect the funds you would normally spend on these luxuries.

First-time homebuyers are feeling the affordability pinch in hot markets such as Ottawa, but also plan to use their growing savings to boost their down payment, according to a recent survey from BMO Bank of Montreal. “The Canadian housing market, overall, is incredibly strong right now with record demand and tighter supply pushing prices up,” says Hassan Pirnia, head of personal lending and home financing products, BMO Bank of Montreal. “While some buyers are looking to accelerate their move into the market anticipating price appreciation, we are seeing others pause on their homeownership plans. According to the BMO survey, 80 per cent of first-time buyers intend on using some or most of their increased savings to boost their down payment. Nationally, respondents expect to spend $433,000 on their first home, compared to $529,000 in Ontario.


4 TRICKS TO BOOST YOUR DOWN PAYMENT FROM ALYSSA RICHARD, CO-FOUNDER AND CO-CEO OF RATEHUB.CA

HIGH-INTEREST SAVINGS ACCOUNTS

GUARANTEED INVESTMENT CERTIFICATES (GICS)

When choosing where to park your cash, there are a number of factors to consider. One key component in your choice of bank should be the interest rate of your savings account. High-interest savings accounts have different interest rates depending on the financial institution. If you’re shopping for a new bank, be sure to compare interest rates with other banks or credit unions. Many financial institutions will often have promotions encouraging you to switch that involve a high interest rate either for a set period, or permanently. Do your research and make sure you’re saving with an institution that gives you the best rate. Keep in mind, Canada is in a historically low interest rate environment, so the difference between rates may seem tiny. But if your savings are large enough, that tiny difference can have a decent impact over time.

This investment vehicle provides plenty of peace of mind. The guarantee the name refers to doesn’t mean you’ll definitely make a lot of money. It guarantees you definitely won’t lose money, which is a promise you can’t get from most other investments. GICs let you lock in a certain sum (a minimum investment of $500 or $1,000 is typical) for a specific period of time, usually one to five years. The longer you keep money in the GIC, the higher the interest rate is and the more interest you’re likely to earn. This makes GICs an excellent option for people looking to grow their savings over the long term, but who don’t want to take on risk.

3 THE HOME BUYERS’ PLAN

An RRSP is a type of account that holds a variety of investments, such as GICs. RRSPs have three advantages. First, everything you contribute to your RRSP is tax deductible. Second, you can invest

from an RRSP and any profits from those investments remain tax free as long as they stay in the RRSP. Third, if you’re a first-time homebuyer, you can withdraw up to $25,000 from your RRSP taxfree to put toward your first home when you participate in the Home Buyers’ Plan. If you’re purchasing your first home with a partner or spouse, you can withdraw as much as $25,000 from each of your accounts for a total of $50,000 to put toward your home. But there’s a catch: The Home Buyers’ Plan essentially works as a loan to yourself, so you must contribute at least one-fifteenth of the amount in your RRSP over a 15-year period or the money withdrawn will be taxed.

4 THE BOTTOM LINE

Investing your down payment in stocks can be risky if you’re buying a home within the next few years, since there’s a chance you could lose money. A safe investment option, such as a high-interest savings account or a GIC, can give you a better return on your money.

5 STEPS TO PREPARE TO BUY A HOME IN A HOT MARKET FROM JESSE ABRAMS, CO-FOUNDER, HOMEWISE

1 ORGANIZE YOUR FINANCES

When it comes to your finances, it’s essential to understand that buying a home is more than just a down payment and monthly payments. You need to also account for closing costs, as well other expenses once your home closes. Further, once you move into your home, there may be unforeseen expenses that arise.

2 FIND YOUR TARGET MARKET

Once you have an idea of your home affordability, you can start figuring out what neighbourhoods you’re able

to buy in. Hire a good realtor who will help you find releases and listings that check all your boxes, whether that’s regarding schools, public amenities, major transit hubs, dining and entertainment.

3 DETERMINE YOUR MAXIMUM OFFER IN ADVANCE

In a hot market, there’s often bidding wars for resale homes. So, while your pre-approval will help you understand your maximum affordability, it’s also important to get an idea of how the monthly payments and your down payment will affect your life. Determine a maximum amount and stick to it.

4 GET PRE-APPROVED

Getting pre-approved for a mortgage is beneficial for a variety of reasons. It helps you understand your overall home affordability, the rates and mortgage features available, and it gives you an idea of what your monthly payments will be.

5 HAVE FUN WITH THE PROCESS

Buying a home is an exciting milestone and one of the biggest decisions you’ll make in your life. Going into this process with confidence and an open mind will help you make the best decision to find your home and make the experience as exciting as it should be.
