EDITOR’S NOTE

THE WEATHER (AND THE HOME MARKET) HEATS UP

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

+

The robust market for real estate in Metro Vancouver is big news these days. The rising prices reflect the low supply, as well as the pent-up demand from the pandemic; a condition that will only be exacerbated as immigration levels return to historical average. Developers will build to meet this supply, but projects take time, so this situation may continue for a while. Our industry experts, MLA’s Cameron MacNeill and Fifth Avenue’s Jamie Squires, both have very insightful columns in this issue about what to expect going forward, and where you can expect the most real estate action to be (hint: it’s everywhere in Metro Vancouver). April is always the month where you finally feel safe leaving the raincoat at home (a pocket umbrella will do), and the time of year when you feel gung-ho about planting the seeds for a fruitful – or veggieful summer. If you live in the country this is easily accomplished, but those of us in the city and/or living in a condo or a townhome have to be more creative. Our feature this issue explores the developers who have community gardens built right into their outdoor amenity offerings, and how they are a great selling feature. If your strata doesn’t currently have gardening space, with enough resident support it’s easy to build one. There are also community gardens all over the city, and we have a list of resources to get you growing this year. Happy springtime! 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!

DID YOU KNOW?

The mayor of North Vancouver has proposed a large pedestrian and cycling bridge/park over Lonsdale to connect the South and North halves of North Vancouver.

Massive Lansdowne Centre Redevelopment gets Approval Lansdowne’s long-term owner, Vanprop, is proposing a redevelopment of the current Richmond mall that aspires to meet every challenge set out in Richmond’s City Centre Area Plan (CCAP). It will create a worldclass gateway to a vibrant retail, culture and entertainment centre, including new parks and public space for the whole city, and a complete, pedestrian friendly residential village, with a light environmental footprint. The new Lansdowne master-planned community will be located at No. 3

Road, on the Canada Line, and will feature an expansive Civic Plaza, the perfect place to meet up with neighbours, to celebrate special events, to eat, shop, play and be entertained – an ideal place for residents or visitors to begin a Richmond adventure.

Fortis teams up with Metro Vancouver’s Climate Action Plan

Today, Metro Vancouver and FortisBC Energy Inc. announced they’ve agreed to work together to achieve regional climate-action goals and to showcase a new facility that will recover more energy from liquid wastewater treatment. The new Lulu Island Renewable Natural Gas Facility, located in Richmond, B.C., at Metro Vancouver’s Lulu Island Wastewater Treatment Plant site, now allows

the unused biogas to be cleaned, stored and sold to purchasers such as FortisBC as Renewable Natural Gas (RNG). Renewable Natural Gas can blend seamlessly in existing gas infrastructure running throughout the province. As a low carbon substitute, increasing the amount of RNG in the FortisBC natural gas system helps reduce net greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions versus conventional natural gas.

Ryan Beedie, a Vancouverborn real estate developer and philanthropist, has launched a new scholarship program to help single parents pursue further education, announced on Single Parents’ Day, March 21. The Beedie Luminaries foundation will grant ten scholarship awards worth up to $40,000 each to single parents struggling to make ends meet. The funds can be used towards full-time or part-time studies at any public post-secondary institution or trade school in the province, as well as the Native Education College, according to a news release. “Given this and the additional hardships brought on by the pandemic, we wanted to expand the Beedie Luminaries scholarship program to help provide much-needed support to single parents so they can upgrade their skills and open more doors for themselves and their children,” explained Beedie. nexthome.ca  13

COVER STORY

EILA ON W49 CURATED LIVING ON VANCOUVER’S WEST SIDE Long known as one of the world’s most popular, livable cities, Vancouver holds a special place in the hearts of a diverse range of homebuyers. And the West Side is undisputedly one of the city’s most sought after, prestigious neighbourhoods. So it’s no surprise that Eila on W49 is turning heads and winning hearts. Located in the heart of the West Side, Eila on W49 is a collection of just 23 townhomes and garden suites featuring dramatic whiteon-white façades with eyecatching board-and-batten siding and black metal accents. Interiors are sunny and classically minimalist by design. “Laura Melling is well known for creating homes where spaces flow together effortlessly giving them a spacious, airy ambiance,” says 16  New Home + Condo Guide  |  Apr. 3–17, 2021

Clare Linton, Alabaster Homes’ Director of Sales and Marketing. “Today, with the pandemic keeping people home more than before, we’re all rethinking how to make the spaces in our homes even more usable and inviting. So like all our projects, at Eila on W49 we’ve designed homes that put the focus on how people and families actually live.” Floor plans, she adds, are wider than what’s typically seen in a townhome. “These residences mimic the feel of a single-family home. Sometimes it can be difficult to find privacy, especially now when you might have two parents working from home plus a couple of children attending school virtually. So we’ve made sure each member of the family has their own space — regular

bedrooms all easily accommodate a queen-sized bed and all master bedrooms are large enough for a king.” As a bonus, there’s also a den that can become a home office, yoga space, or hobby room — just bring your creative ideas and transform them into reality. Designed to inspire, sundrenched kitchens are poised to become the heart of these homes. Ready for a few hints? Let’s start with spacious eating bars, quartz countertops, and soft-close millwork. Chefs are sure to feel new inspiration with the premium integrated Fisher & Paykel appliance package with an option of upgrading to Gaggenau — sweet. Best of all, there’s easy access to your patio or balcony, so when we can once again gather for barbeques with friends and


family, your new home will be ready for the celebration. Then there are Alabaster’s myriad small touches that make big differences: nine-foot ceilings, a powder on the main level, and a parking stall roughed in for EV, the list is long and thoughtful. Always a trend-setter, Alabaster has even created one floorplan featuring master-on-the-main that meets the needs of active downsizers looking for a home where they can effortlessly age in place. But wait, there’s more. “We understand how important private outdoor spaces are, especially today, so every townhome has

its own rooftop terrace or expansive patio — some as large as 280 square feet, most with dazzling views,” Clare says. She adds that every garden home will boast a spacious, landscaped patio. Eila on W49 offers 11 garden homes priced from the mid $600,000’s an 12 townhomes with 1,160 to 1,609 square feet of elegant living space priced from $1.4 million. You should be booking and registering on eila49.ca. Alternatively, contact eila49@alabasterhomes.ca for the latest information.

NEIGHBOURHOOD PROFILE

oakridGe Stretching from Granville Street to Ontario Street between West 41st and 57th Avenues, Oakridge is a rectangular-shaped oasis in the heart of Vancouver. Home to the Oakridge Centre shopping mall, Langara College and the Jewish Community Centre, this bustling area is one of the most recent – and constantly evolving – developments in the city. While Oakridge Centre is currently just a huge hole in the ground, within five years it will be a bustling and crowded urban hub, with a large public park, huge food centre and many high-end retailers. LIFEstyLE

Oakridge is home to great shopping, exciting cultural activities and a number of large green spaces and parks. Whether you’re looking for designer apparel at the Oakridge Centre (currently under construction), meeting for a round of golf at the historical Langara Golf Course (opened in 18  New Home + Condo Guide  |  Apr. 3–17, 2021

1926) or taking in a play at the Jewish Community Centre’s Norman Rothstein Theatre, you’ll never be bored in this young and lively neighbourhood. Oakridge will soon be home to three of the Metro regions largest masterplanned communities with the redevelopment of Oakridge Mall, the large project down the street from Oakridge Centre at the current bus storage lot, as well as Onni’s Cambie Gardens, up at Cambie and 57th, across from the Langara Golf Course. tHE VIBE

Mostly forest until the late 1950s, Oakridge was one of the last neighbourhoods developed in Vancouver. A unique and constantly growing community, it has an abundance of urban amenities, schools and parks to keep residents of every age and inclination entertained. Oakridge’s tree-lined streets and safe community feel, combined

with the short commute to the downtown core, makes it a desirable home base for many. MEEt tHE NEIGHBOURs

Since the end of the Second World War, Oakridge has been the heart of Vancouver’s Jewish community and is proud home to the annual Chutzpah! Festival for the performing arts. According to the city of Vancouver’s 2001 Census data, 50 percent of residents claim Chinese as their first language. This affluent area also includes young professionals and families as well as assisted-living facilities that cater to a growing senior population. DOLLaRs & sENsE

In a neighbourhood that’s known for its picturesque, tree-lined streets, golf course and designer stores, Oakridge is undoubtedly a place where the affluent live and play. While it is a popular choice for middle class and wealthy professional families, the sheer


variety of amenities provides a lot of options to all. The green spaces, Jewish community centre and affordable public transit routes let you make your own fun on a budget. PLaNEs, tRaINs & aUtOMOBILEs

Centrally located within Vancouver, Oakridge is wellconnected by car and public transit. The area features two stops on the Canada Line of the SkyTrain rapid transit system, which runs all the way from Vancouver’s waterfront to the Vancouver International Airport in Richmond. Good bus links to Vancouver’s downtown and out to the University of British Columbia make it easy to get to schools, shopping and other attractions throughout the city. IN tHE aREa

In addition to Langara College, residents have access to two

elementary schools and the city’s second largest secondary school (offering a French immersion and International Baccalaureate program). Cambie Park, Tisdall Park and Columbia Park offer plenty of green space to walk dogs, exercise or just escape the daily grind of the city. The Oakridge Centre shopping mall is also a huge attraction for locals and visitors alike. tHE GOOD, tHE BaD & tHE REst

Oakridge’s prime location may make it accessible, but it comes at a cost. Granville and Main Streets are popular thoroughfares that border the neighbourhood, while Oak and Cambie Streets actually run north-south through it, and are known as Vancouver’s busiest commuter roads. Luckily for residents, the area’s top-notch SkyTrain and bus connections can make your commute quick and hassle-free, even if you can’t block out the noise of honking cars.

Jewish Community Centre of Greater VanCouVer Well known for its Chutzpah!

ADVICE | MORTGAGE MINUTE

CREDIT CARD RULES HOW TO WEAN YOURSELF OFF CREDIT CARD DEBT

ALISA ARAGON-LLOYD

The Canadian government has implemented credit card regulations, which it says increase transparency and protect consumers. Here are some of the new regulations now in place: • Credit contracts and application forms must have a “summary box” that clearly explains interest rates, fees, and how long it would take to fully repay a balance if only minimum monthly payments are made. • Banks must give advance disclosure of interest rate increases, even if this information is already in the credit contract. • You must give your consent before your credit limit can be increased. • If you transfer your balance to a lower-interest card, your

payments now have to be allocated in your favour. • There’s now a limit on certain debt collection practices used by financial institutions. • Banks can’t charge over-thelimit fees resulting from holds placed by merchants. • One of the most significant changes you’ll have a minimum 21-day interest-free grace period on all new purchases if you pay your outstanding balance in full by the due date. Critics of the new rules say they don’t go far enough. However, at least the government is trying to make an effort to help consumers avoid predatory lending practices. And that’s a good thing. However, an even better strategy is to start weaning yourself off of credit card debt. Unlike taking out a mortgage to buy a home or revenue property, buying stuff with your credit card at high interest rates doesn’t yield any returns - it simply gets you deeper in debt.

The following are some tips to help you use your credit card responsibly so you don’t pay unnecessary charges and get in trouble with credit card debt: • When you pay for something with a credit card, you are taking out a loan and you have to pay it back. • Pay the balance in full each month • If you can’t pay it in full, pay as much as you can • Don’t make only the minimum payment • If you always carry a balance, get a low rate card • Pay a few days before the due date • If you have a line of credit, transfer the balance to your line of credit with a lower rate. The goal is to pay down your debt and not go further into debt. Put yourself on a budget, take a part-time job (or start a home business) and eventually get your credit cards paid off. You will be astonished how much extra money you will have to invest in assets that actually appreciate in value and put cash in your pocket!

Fraser by Zenterra Developments 22  New Home + Condo Guide  |  Apr. 3–17, 2021

Three was the magic number at the 29th Annual Georgie Awards. Competition was stiff as finalists vied for top honours in more than 50 categories at a virtual gala held on March 20th, 2021, and when the winners were announced, five companies tied as frontrunners with three of the coveted golds statues a piece. As always, this year’s Georgie Awards were a showcase of innovation and dedication to craft with some extra challenges never before faced in the 29-year history of this competition. And, as always, the BC building industry showed the stuff they are made of. “In the midst of the pandemic, CHBA BC builder and renovator members from throughout the province continued to demonstrate their resilience, professionalism, and commitment to safe work sites,” said Neil Moody, CEO of the Canadian Home Builders’ Association of British Columbia. The virtual gala was a sleek, entertaining celebration that effectively captured the excitement and enthusiasm of a live event in a more compact Zoom format. Finalists had logged in from offices or living rooms, ready to raise their glasses when the winners were announced. Often the kids were on hand too, eager to be part of an event they would rarely

experience live. And like last year, at the mid-point of the evening, Destinique once again took to the stage delivering a sizzling, high-energy performance. HONOURING EXCELLENCE

Landmark Premiere Properties was one of two companies that counted two Grand Georgies among their trio of wins — garnering Multi-Family Home Builder of the Year and Marketing Campaign of the Year for their luxurious Foster Martin condominium residence overlooking the ocean in White Rock. Two companies rocked the North Shore with three golds each. Twin Lions Contracting Ltd counted the prestigious Renovator Customer Satisfaction Award among their wins, while Shakespeare Homes & Renovations snagged two grands — Custom Home Builder of the Year and Residential Renovator of the Year. No stranger to top honours, Vesta Properties was named Single-Family Production Home Builder of the Year — an award they’re already also assured of

in the upcoming HAVAN awards — for their multiphased Latimer Heights master planned community in Langley. Also of note, South Surrey-based Zenterra Developments wowed the judges in the Provincial Award of Excellence in Housing Affordability with Fraser, a collection of family-oriented townhomes located in Langley’s Murrayville neighbourhood. Just up the street, new-comer Crew H Properties snagged Best Multi-Family Townhouse Development for Redwood Park while long-time participant, Miracon, struck gold in the Builder Customer Satisfaction category. A wise person once said, “life is short so make it count.” The 2021 Annual Georgie Awards did just that. For a complete list of winners and finalists, visit georgieawards.ca.

HOW FAST WILL THE MARKET PENDULUM SWING BACK

TO THE CITY CENTRE? CAMERON MCNEILL

Before the pandemic hit last year, there had been a decline in activity when it came to new home purchases in the Downtown Core. Towards the latter end of 2018 and throughout 2019, buyer confidence was falling. Consequently, the number of transactions and project launches in the market also dropped. Price point soon followed. Although the pandemic had initially led to a flight to more space, we should expect to see an inevitable snapback of the condo market with a considerable pendulum swing for buyer demand, project developments, and price per square foot in Downtown Vancouver that we’ve never seen before. The city will always be a desirable place to live. 26  New Home + Condo Guide  |  Apr. 3–17, 2021

Employers will open offices again, and the lure of urban life will soon draw residents back to the city. The sparks of rejuvenation are already lighting up the seemingly slow downtown Vancouver condo market, with the Downtown luxury market feeling rumbles of activity brewing for the first time in 2021. A Sub-Penthouse in The Pacific tower on Pacific Street recently sold for $9 million at $3,300/sq. ft. This latest sale may predict a return of the high-end market that has been recently stagnant in Vancouver. However, what becomes concerning about an increase in buyer demand in the city is the potential lack of supply available in the market. With the expected 1.3 million new Canadians to arrive within the next three years and the addition of enterprise-level companies like Amazon accommodating up to 10,000 employees with their new Canadian headquarters — government and city processes should find solutions to speed up

the development timeframes of new projects. With the average new development taking anywhere from 2 to 6 years to complete, this could mean a shortage of supply to new homeowners. We must never forget; the accessibility and amenities will always make the city a desirable location to live and work within. With real estate prices under extraordinary pressure, in all of the Greater Vancouver and Fraser Valley areas, the silent downtown condo market is undoubtedly about to make some noise.

WOOD BUILDINGS PROMOTE SUSTAINABILITY AND LIVABILITY

The Canadian Wood Council defines cross-laminated timber (CLT) as “a proprietary engineered wood product that is prefabricated using several layers of kiln-dried lumber, laid flat-wise, and glued together on their wide faces”. Despite being five-times lighter than concrete, CLT has comparable strength per weight ratio to concrete, along with exhibiting advantages for structural, fire, thermal and acoustic performance. As opposed to concrete, building with CLT, or “mass timber”, has a number of environmental benefits. Life cycle assessments show that wood outperforms both steel and concrete in terms of energy, air pollution and water pollution. Carbon storage is another important component of building with CLT. A healthy tree in a forest will release oxygen and store carbon dioxide. Using mass timber as a building product reduces the carbon footprint by also storing carbon dioxide in the same way a healthy tree would. Adera Developments is a world leader in building with CLT, and they have a lot of great information about this material on their website. They explain the benefits this way, “To put it into perspective, it is believed a single five-storey, cross-laminated timber building will cut emissions by levels equivalent to removing up to 600 cars from the road for a year”. Adera has created a proprietary product called

SmartWood™ that leverages the technology and benefits of CLT to further build on innovation in energy, safety, and sound efficiency with all the noisereduction benefits of living in a concrete building. Explains Adera’s Eric Andreason, “Adera recognizes mass timber as one of the main paths towards more sustainable home building. We believe that our proprietary SmartWood™ is a better way to build. It addresses one of the biggest contributions to climate change today. First, in offsetting emissions during construction, and then by using exclusively harvested wood from sustainably-managed forests and storing it sequestered in the mass timber we use in our buildings “ Adera has committed to building 1,000 new mass timber homes in the Vancouver region by 2025. Says Andreason, “By using Smartwood CLT, we will be creating beautiful, strong and carbon sequestering structures that are built for generations to come. We understand that price, product, location, and reputation remain paramount to our customers, but so does our unwavering commitment to sustainability and climate change. We will deliver more mass timber homes than any other in our class in the next five years. Two of our newest multi-family condo projects — Crest in Central Lonsdale, and Duet in West Coquitlam — were built with Smartwood.” nexthome.ca  27

DIRTY IN THE CITY THE HEALTH, ENVIRONMENTAL, AND SOCIAL BENEFITS OF URBAN GARDENS Just because you live in a tower in the sky, or in a bustling urban neighbourhood, doesn’t mean you can’t go and pick your own salad for lunch, or grab a few herbs and some tomatoes for your chef’s special spaghetti sauce, right from your own dirt. Benefits of gardening are well documented – it creates healthy food, involves people in active recreation for all ages, engages people in their community, provides mental relaxation, and creates green spaces for everyone to enjoy. In urban areas there are three main ways to get your hands in the dirt: community gardens on city land, community gardens in your strata, and balcony gardening. Indeed, space for urban gardening was written into the 30  New Home + Condo Guide  |  Apr. 3–17, 2021

development plan for the Olympic Village neighbourhood over twenty years ago. That project became a laboratory for how urban agriculture can be designed into high-density developments. In particular, it required shared garden plots for the residential units that lack access to balconies or patios of at least 100 square feet. Some of the larger patios and balconies included planters to provide residents with the opportunity to grow food. Cressey Development Group was at the forefront of this innovative approach to common spaces. “Our outdoor amenity spaces were created to provide residents with a chance to enjoy the outdoors and engage with one another,” says Jason Turcotte, Cressey’s Vice President

of Development. “Many of our projects include gardening plots for residents to grow their own vegetable and herb gardens. These spaces aim to foster a strong sense of community and give residents with a chance to enjoy their Cressey homes.” Cressey’s Format project, being built on Kingsway in the Cedar Cottage neighbourhood, continues this Cressey tradition. The homes at Format all have access to a rooftop shared amenity space which features garden plots for residents to grow their own food or flowers. COMMUNITY CONDO GARDENS

They can sit at the edge.” Moving into a condo that supports these kinds of gardens is not only good for your diet and

There has been a surge of urban gardening as more and more people are wanting to grow and care for their own herbs and vegetables.” Adds Eshleen, “Being able to show useable outdoor spaces really helps bring downsizers into the buildings.” Providing residents space to grow food and connect with the earth and each other was a priority for Wesgroup when envisioning the urban plan for River District in South Vancouver. Offering community gardening spaces is part of Wesgroup’s commitment to providing River District’s residents the best urban living experience. Says Wesgroup’s Brad Jones, 32  New Home + Condo Guide  |  Apr. 3–17, 2021

“The community plan for River District always prioritized useful green space, food gardens are an integral part of the plan.” ADDING GARDENING SPACE TO YOUR BUILDING

If your strata doesn’t currently have community gardening plots, don’t fret, it’s still possible! If this interests you, bring it up at your next strata council meeting, and you may find your neighbours are just as eager as you are to get digging. Rooftops, balconies, lawns, side gardens can all be re-purposed as garden plots for residents. (Just make sure you check with an engineer before you start.) Lifespace Gardens is an excellent company with experience doing rooftops, side gardens and many types of beautiful, edible container gardens – many that are self-watering! www.lifespacegardens.com

• If you are too high for bees (above the 20th floor) you can pollinate tomatoes, peppers and berries yourself with a soft paintbrush. Below 20 floors, plant a variety of flowers to attract bees and consider installing a mason bee habitat • Greens like kale, salad, chard and spinach are good producers all year round, and do not need a lot of sunlight. Rhubarb is very tolerant of cold and comes back every year • Pots of herbs brighten up your balcony as well as your meals. Perennials include sage, rosemary and thyme, and they produce beautiful flowers as well. Basil is great if you have lots of sun • Cherry tomatoes are the best bet to consistently ripen in our climate, and different varieties can produce all summer • Make the most of any walls by planting runner beans and peas. They add greenery and the pea shoots are also edible

LOCAL MARKET SOARS WITH LOCAL BUYERS

JAMIE SQUIRES

Home sales continue at a frenzied pace in Metro Vancouver, and beyond in British Columbia, despite, or perhaps due to, the Covid-19 pandemic. With the borders closed, in addition to taxes brought in to fend off the “foreign buyer,” this begs the question how much foreign buying ever was a significant factor prior to the pandemic, as home prices soar higher than ever seen in our province before. Homes are a product that are produced and sell at a market price, based on supply and demand. The pandemic has shown how undersupplied our home market is, especially in metropolitan and suburban areas. Buyers in this particular real estate ‘wave’ are local buyers, pushing the market up, due to the rules of the pandemic itself. This is clearly not a foreign buyer issue as politicians have tried to have us all believe prior to the pandemic. If this was the case the market would and could not be rising as it is today. More and more industries realize that productivity has increased, despite the new “work from home” mandates for many companies. People are realizing the daily commute is no longer needed and can look for more space to enable working from home, farther

from their place of work, to allow more affordable prices within their budget is now possible. Those living with parents want their own space, even a simple condo, for added privacy. Those with families are looking for townhomes and single-family homes instead of condos. Each person’s needs are different but what they all have in common is looking for real estate they can call their home and live more comfortably and safely during this unprecedented time. The effects are seen in multiple offers in re-sale homes, especially single-family homes across Metro Vancouver and the Fraser Valley alike, and even the Okanagan. This pattern has also emerged in townhomes and multifamily homes including new homes due to the low supply available in almost every area. Multiple offers on new homes were rarely seen until this past year. Much of the supply issue is due to slower

approval processes at the city and municipal level across the province. This is one of the many down sides of the pandemic as city staff and councils do their best with online meetings. It will be very interesting to see how this plays out in the year ahead, with vaccinations and a return to some sort of “normalcy.” We will keep you updated!

BORDEAUX BRENTWOOD’S SPARKLING JEWEL Who says a good thing can’t get better? Certainly not the sales team at Bordeaux in Brentwood. “We’ve just released our Private Collection of three-bedroom townhomes, and they are absolutely stunning,” says Sasha Davis, Solterra’s Bordeaux brand manager. Finished to the same exacting standards as the Private Collection condominium residences in the tower, these homes introduce exclusive finishing details and spacious floorplans that are clearly wowing savvy homebuyers. “We’re seeing a lot of people moving here from condos in Vancouver because they get so much more — more space, more luxury, more convenience,” Sasha says. THE LIFE YOU DESERVE

Like every Solterra home, Bordeaux’s Private Collection is designed from the inside out, always keeping the focus on how people actually live. “These residences will have state-of-the-art appliances including larger fridges, heated tile flooring in a chevron pattern, and glass railings on the stairs to the upper floors so no matter where you are you’ll be able to see outside, Sasha explains. “And with private outdoor spaces 36  New Home + Condo Guide  |  Apr. 3–17, 2021

becoming more important than ever, people are delighted by the multiple terraces - some as large as 600 square feet.” Yet another added bonus is direct access to your two parking stalls, one with an EV charger ready for your eco-friendly electric vehicle. COME SEE FOR YOURSELF

Intrigued? Well why not check it out for yourself, because Bordeaux’s brand new in-building presentation centre and display townhome are now open in the building. Sasha’s also delighted to announce hardhat tours are available for the remaining tower residences. “It’s always so much fun when you’re able to actually walk through the home you’re purchasing and imagine how your furniture and art could look.” The Bordeaux presentation centre is open Saturday to Wednesday from noon to 5pm or by private appointment at 4488 Juneau Street in Burnaby.

Shelf style INSPIRATION |

by JENNIFER BACKSTEIN

Aim for the perfect shelfie with these great ideas

S

helf styling has become a favourite way to not just add storage to a room, but bring in some personality, too. A great shelf display creates points of interest and tells a story that words can’t convey. The trend has become even more relevant lately, with our homes becoming ground zero for work, play, relaxation and inspiration. Of course, there’s the all-important Zoom meeting background – the little snapshot behind you that your professional and casual contacts get to see. This brings us to the topic of shelf styling, otherwise known as “shelfies.” Your bookshelf is

38  New Home + Condo Guide  |  Apr. 3–17, 2021

a great opportunity to show yourself and your style. Whether you’re accessorizing a large custom built-in or a small, “big box” bookcase, here are some styling tips to achieve a thoughtful and curated look.

Furthermore, you’ll want the overall display to be balanced, as well. Evaluate the visual weight of the large items and the overall arrangements. Is the display too top-heavy, skewed to one side or evenly distributed?

Aim for equilibrium

May the odds be ever in your favour

Balance is soothing and somehow satisfying. It’s “right.” We naturally tend toward equilibrium in our interiors, from our rooms and the furnishings in them, right down to our bookshelf accessories. Start by arranging larger pieces, such as books, photos and art, toward the back of the shelf. Then, layer in your smaller pieces in front.

Taking balance a step further, odd-numbered groupings of items are pleasing to the eye and the mind, allowing us to naturally create symmetry that people are naturally drawn to. Arrange your collections in groups of three or five on shelves, or on any surface for that matter – tabletop, desk or mantle.


These groupings create little “landscapes,” and when done correctly, they become landmarks in the room. The eye naturally gravitates to the largest item in the centre and takes in the details around it. When it comes to the items you choose to display, I believe in the holy trinity of shelf styling: Books, art/accessories and plants. These offer an effortless and intriguing mix of colour, texture and shape, which keeps the eye moving from one grouping to the next. Alternate your accessories to keep your shelves interesting. This can include seasonal additions, trendy new buys or a rotation of existing collections. Just remember: For every new item you bring in, take one out. You don’t have to display everything – rather, be selective. In the case of a bookcase, less really is more.

Lighting Can you actually see the items that you’ve carefully selected and thoughtfully arranged? Or are these treasures hidden in the shadows? If you’re designing a room from scratch or renovating a space, plan your shelves and display areas together with your

lighting plan. A built-in bookcase with strategically placed, focused pot lights can instantly elevate your collections from mere accessories to artfully displayed treasures. If you’re styling an existing bookshelf but want to enhance the light around it, consider adding sconces or overhead upper embedded shelf lighting (electrician recommended!) or, as a DIY option, small table lamps or light strings arranged on your shelves can do the trick.

Perhaps right now, you are seeking inspiration to style your own shelves. But those very same shelves could soon serve as inspiration in your home and a sneak peek into your own interests and indulgences. Shelf styling is an art, and it takes time. Experiment with existing items, display pieces you love and think beyond the cubby, so to speak. The bookshelf is not just for books anymore

ADVICE | BILD REPORT

THINKING OF

AGEING IN PLACE? HERE ARE SOME KEY FACTORS TO CONSIDER

DAVE WILKES A recent survey conducted by the National Institute on Ageing at Toronto’s Ryerson University indicated that COVID-19 has more people thinking about aging in place. The survey of 1,517 Canadians suggests more seniors want to continue living at home as they age, rather than move to a retirement home or long-term care facility. Sixty per cent of respondents said the pandemic had changed their opinions on whether they would arrange for themselves or an older loved one to live in a nursing or retirement home. Seventy per cent of respondents aged 65 and older said they would try to live safely and independently in their own home as long as possible. Do you feel the same about your own ageing process? The good news is, you can stay in your present home as long as you want, if you design it to meet your future lifestyle needs. Here are some things to consider. BATHROOMS

You can make your washrooms safer and help prevent falls by having smooth transitions between floor finishes. Installing a curbless or roll-in shower is a great idea if you want to remain independent. You might want to have a seat in the shower and

install a hand-held spout lower on the wall for easier access. Another idea is to have a floating vanity for easy wheelchair access. ACCESS

Consider wider doorways and hallways to accommodate wheelchairs. Think about stair lifts and elevators for the future. When it comes to the kitchen, you can install upper cabinets that lower with a slight pull on a handle for easier access. Lastly, think about a dual-height kitchen island or counter to accommodate those both in a wheelchair and everyone else in the family. TAX CREDITS

The provincial government recently announced the Seniors’ Home Safety Tax Credit that can help you make your home safer and more accessible. The tax credit is worth 25 per cent of up to $10,000 in eligible expenses for a senior’s principal residence in Ontario. The maximum credit is $2,500.

This is only a short list of what you need to consider. There are other considerations, such as addressing lighting quality to help with visual impairments, or other potential situations that need special consideration. The best thing to do is to work with a RenoMark renovator who has a certified aging in place specialist on staff. These professionals know what to do, have the correct licences and will ensure that you do it legally and correctly the first time. Your home and safety are not things to cut corners on.
