EDITOR’S NOTE

UNDERSTAND THE “AGREEMENT”

SUSAN LEGGE Edi\tor-in-chief Wall2Wall Media Susan.Legge@ypnexthome.ca Follow me on Twitter at Twitter.com/SusanLegge Like us on facebook search: Condo Guide

Buying a brand-new home or condo offers an opportunity to get exactly what you really want. It can be a dream come true and an investment for the future, but don’t forget, it’s also a legal transaction. The term “get it in writing” has never been more important in the case of the new-home or condo purchase since it outlines everything your new home will have in it and around it. Otherwise known as the Agreement of Purchase and Sale, the contract spells out the terms between you and your developer and/or builder. Without it, if there is a misunderstanding or disagreement, it’s impossible to prove what was agreed upon. Since building a home is much more complicated than a resale transaction where the home already exists, there is

no set Agreement of Purchase and Sale or standard contract for buying a new home. In some provinces, builders may have standard contracts prepared by the local home builders’ association or their new-home warranty program. Builders often prepare their own agreements so new-home contracts can vary from one builder to another and from province to province. Before you sign a contract, review it carefully with the builder and ask questions to make sure you fully understand what’s in it. Your next step is to then take it to a real estate lawyer and have it reviewed. Once it is signed, it becomes a legal document, so seeking the services of an experienced lawyer is an important step toward ensuring that your dream home becomes a reality.

TRANSPORTATION IS KEY TO THE FUTURE OF URBAN LIVING

STEPHANIE MACDONALD Editor Wall2Wall Media Stephanie.MacDonald@ypnexthome.ca

12 NEW CONDO GUIDE MARCH 6 - 20, 2015

I can still remember the first time I took a ride on the SkyTrain. It was around the time of Expo ’86, the cars were shiny and new, and my grandma and I got on at the Granville Station and took the ride all the way out to Surrey and back. The distinctive sound that the Bombardier cars make when pulling out of the station always reminds me of that first trip, which we thought was as exciting as any theme park ride. It’s hard to believe that there was a contentious political battle fought over what has become an integral part of our region’s growth and urban planning. Certainly Surrey, New West, Burnaby and now Coquitlam would be very different places altogether if there was no fast, (mostly) reliable way to get to and from the city core. Now we are again making an important decision for

the city’s future. Take part in the Metro Vancouver Transportation & Transit Referendum, from March 16 - May 29, 2015, and have your say in the future of Metro Vancouver. An average household would pay $125 a year for the increase to the province’s existing 7-per-cent provincial sales tax, according to Vancouver City Hall staff. The new levy would raise $250-million a year for the capital and operating costs of the new transit projects, leaving regional mayors to seek about $3-billion from the federal government and province. With more than one million new residents in the Lower Mainland over the next 30 years, this is one of the most pressing issues for the continued livability of our beautiful city.

COVER STORY

THE SHORE Your North Shore Shangri-La THE SUN’S SHINING, spring’s in the air, and since it’s been at least a month since I last visited The Shore in North Vancouver, I figure it’s a perfect day to hop on my bike and head over the Lions Gate Bridge. As an extra incentive, Eric Andreasen, Adera’s vice president of marketing and sales, tells me the community’s highly anticipated West Coast piazza is almost complete. “The Shore’s success is undeniable,” Eric notes. “Since our grand reopening in September, The Shore’s second building is over 70 per cent sold and we anticipate starting to sell our third building months earlier than anticipated. Plus our first homeowners have moved into building one, so there’s a very lively, tangible sense of neighbourhood evolving. The Shore is now so much more than a collection of presale 16 NEW CONDO GUIDE MARCH 6 - 20, 2015

condominium homes in a fantastic location — it’s a vibrant community. And for the next while, many of these value-packed homes are available for immediate occupancy.” Outdoor Sociable As I cross the bridge over Mosquito Creek at The Shore’s entry, I once again experience the distinct sense of leaving the hustle and bustle behind and entering a quiet retreat secluded in the heart of the city. No wonder Eric likes to refer to this community as a North Shore Shangri-La. I pause to admire the bubbling water feature that I remember vividly from earlier visits. Even though Adera is well-known for incorporating innovative public art into each of their developments, the abstract sculpture

of a tree that’s the focal point of this “bubbler” is one that still intrigues me — somehow capturing the sheer majesty of the North Shore forests while honouring contemporary minimalist sensibilities. Then I look ahead and finally understand why Eric says The Shore’s West Coast piazza is destined to become a social gathering space for the entire community. Inviting benches are conveniently scattered beneath shade trees or beside planter boxes. In the center, there’s another even larger water feature that, on closer inspection, has one sloped edge that reminds me of a beach. I’m betting that once the hot weather hits, plenty of kids of all ages will be found dipping their toes in here. But what’s most amazing is the public art piece located in the middle of the fountain —three, layered

metal sheets each a cutout of the entryway’s “pine tree.” Intriguing and eye catching, it’s also one of the coolest “no waste” art projects I’ve ever seen. “Not only is the piazza an incredible outdoor amenity, it also creates exceptional privacy for homeowners,” Eric says. “It’s so easy to think the best homes are ones with a view of the mountains or Mosquito Creek, but visualize sitting on your balcony and looking out over this,” Eric says gesturing across the lavish landscaping. “You’ve got the animation of the water bubblers and people walking past, plus there’s a huge sense of space between you and the building next door. It’s magnificent. I believe the courtyard homes are unsung heroes that are about to come into their own.” And here’s a super cool bonus. “Imagine practicing yoga in the fitness centre with a view across the piazza as your inspiration,” Eric says. Only thing that might be even better would be a

spin session from the gym overlooking Mosquito Creek. Get Cozy with Al Fresco Love outdoor living and entertaining? Yeah, me too. So if you haven’t checked out The Shore’s rooftop lanais and outdoor kitchens, you need to. “Some homes have almost as much outdoor space as indoor living area,” Eric explains. “At a minimum, these optional, new generation kitchens include a builtin barbeque, fridge, and storage — the larger ones are a full-on outdoor culinary center meaning they’re absolutely perfect for when you have friends over.” And of course, that’s not counting The Shore’s open, airy interiors — spaces designed to accommodate full-scale family entertaining as easily as a romantic dinner for two or even a quiet movie night with just some champagne and a large bowl of popcorn — because yes, it’s true, champagne actually does go with everything.

Discover the Lifestyle “The North Shore is one of those special places that people just don’t want to leave, and if they do they often can’t wait to come back,” Eric says as I gear up for the ride back over Lions Gate to Vancouver. I take a deep breath of the fresh air and it’s easy to understand why. In fact, on second thought, I might take a detour via Deep Cove just to see who’s out sailing or kayaking today. The Shore’s onsite presentation centre and four display homes are open daily noon to 5 p.m. every day at 106 – 733 West Third Street in North Vancouver. Walking distance to shops, dining, and transportation too. Prices start at $232,900.

The transit referendum SIGN ME UP! MORE TRANSIT MAKES FOR MORE LIVABLE CITIES By Bob de Wit

housing affordability and choice. The benefits of transit are also realized by businesses – especially small businesses. When people get out of their cars, foot traffic increases, generating more business for retailers located near transit. Thriving business centres create healthy communities, not to mention easier commute times for employees! Bottom line A strong land use plan requires an efficient transportation plan, and the one we’re being offered, although not perfect, fits the immediate needs of our community, so this spring, I hope you’ll join me in voting “Yes!” to improved transit and transportation in Metro Vancouver!

R

ecently, my bosses, the board of directors of the Greater Vancouver Home Builders’ Association (GVHBA) publicly expressed their support for the proposed 0.5 per cent Metro Vancouver Congestion Improvement Tax, joining over 100 other organizations on the Better Transit and Transportation Coalition. It wasn’t an easy decision for a number of reasons, particularly the reality that the new tax actually increases the costs of doing business for our members. Our staff and board have scrutinized the 30-year strategy and vision reflected in the plan put forth by the Mayors’ Council, and on balance, determined that the initiative is too

important for the community – and our industry – to allow it to fail. So why say ‘yes?’ In short, notwithstanding some real reservations about TransLink, everyone wins with this plan. Any urban land economist worth their salt will tell you this — worldwide, there is a tight correlation between proximity to transit and prosperity. An effective transit system means fewer cars, needing fewer parking spots, freeing up space for a more vibrant, livable city. The benefits, in a competitive market like Metro Vancouver, get passed along to homebuyers leading to improved

CONDO PROFILE

Station Square is located on one of Metro Vancouver’s high points, so the views really do go on forever. —Peter Edmonds

STATION SQUARE Unbeatable views

By Susan M Boyce

Q

uick: think big, panoramic, sunny views. Views that encompass the North Shore Mountains, Vancouver’s downtown cityscape and Stanley Park, the flats of Richmond and all the way to the Gulf Islands. If you’re wondering where you can find all this, it’s a whole lot closer than you might think. Say hello to Station Square in Metrotown. Top of the World Lifestyle “Station Square is located on one of Metro Vancouver’s high points, so the views really do go on forever — especially from the upper floors,” says Peter Edmonds, Anthem’s director of marketing. He’s not asking me just to take his word for it either. In minutes, he’s taken me on a virtual tour of half a dozen homes located between the 32nd to 37th floor thanks to the

34 NEW CONDO GUIDE MARCH 6 - 20, 2015

presentation centre’s interactive touch screens. “Or you can see this on the website from the comfort of your sofa.” In a word, each and every view is breathtaking — although personally I’m leaning toward the southwest facing ones simply because I love watching the sun go down in a blaze of glory over the ocean. But then again, snow glimmering on the mountains in winter is tough to beat for sheer romance. Smart Urbanism “By volume of sales, Station Square is Western Canada’s most successful real estate development,” Peter says. “We’ve had a huge response from people who already live in the area and want to stay here. But many buyers simply see and understand the way this new urban community is enhancing something that’s already

incredible, and they want to invest in their future by being part of it.” Designed with a clear focus on building to a ‘human scale,’ Station Square brings every urban amenity to your front door — literally. Shops, movies, parks, schools and transit are just steps away. Step outside your lobby, and you’ll find yourself immersed in approximately an acre of public outdoor spaces featuring public art, ‘city rooms,’ casual seating areas, and water features. Personally, I can’t wait to see Restaurant Row which Peter assures me will be filled with a diverse range of eateries and, at night, will be lit by catenary lighting — the floating canopy style of lighting that creates such charming night ambiances in many Old World cities like Copenhagen and Paris. And of course, engaging in the social fabric of your community will offer a whole other set of views to complement the ones from your home — lively, dynamic, definitely the best of city living.

Station Square is located at McKay Avenue and Kingsway right next to Metropolis Mall. Presentation centre and display suites are open noon to 6 p.m. every day. Prices start at $316,900 with floorplans ranging from junior one-bedrooms to three-bedroom and den. For more information, visit stationsquare.ca or call 604.438.1113.

CONDO PROFILE

This is Metro Vancouver’s most affordable waterfront offering.

RiverSky Experience Waterfront Living

O

kay, full disclosure. I visit a lot of presentation centres, and it’s not often I find myself at a loss for words when I see a new one. Today, however, I’m in the just opened RiverSky presentation centre and discover my pen simply isn’t doing much writing. Sure, I’d expected this New Westminster waterfront condominium from Bosa Properties would be different — but this is breathtakingly so. Hint: a massive, abstract wave in silver floats above the scale model. It’s also packed with people whose enthusiasm is creating a dynamic, engaging vibe. Young couples, moms and dads with their adult kids, even a couple of silverhaired seniors sporting brilliant smiles and brightly coloured cycling gear — everyone’s talking and asking questions.

By Susan M Boyce

Two brothers are listening intently as one of the sales staff explains that yes, RiverSky homes really do start at $229,990 for a one-bedroom in an amazing waterfront location. “This is Metro Vancouver’s most affordable waterfront offering,” he says. “You just won’t find another brand new, concrete residential on the water and right next door to a SkyTrain station for $500 per square foot anywhere else. In False Creek you can expect to pay $800, and even Steveston it will be at least $575.” Time to check out RiverSky’s display home — a one-bedroom I know features the sleek, sophisticated finishings I expect from Bosa plus the very latest innovations to their trendsetting BosaSPACE™ design.

Inspired Living “That is so cool—absolutely ingenious.” The two women in the living room are watching in delighted disbelief as sales associate Vania Pecchia demonstrates the SleepTHEATRE™ that effortlessly transforms this home’s TV wall into a guest bed. “I could absolutely see myself sleeping there when I visit you,” one of them says grinning at her friend. Her pal, however, has just discovered the StoreMORE™ Pantry Wall that’s been decked out as a mini wine-bar. Here, Vania reveals another surprise. She pulls out what appears to be a drawer I’d estimate is no more than two inches deep and presto — a full-sized ironing board unfolds and snaps neatly into place. “I want one of those,” the woman says emphatically. No kidding—me too. Before I leave, Vania points me toward the balcony — after all, what’s waterfront living unless you have outdoor space to enjoy it? And at 100 square feet, this deck delivers on the promise — patio chairs, picnic table, and my beloved barbeque would all fit comfortably with space to spare. Kind of like having a whole extra living room.

RiverSky will be located at 1000 Quayside Drive (adjacent to the River Market) in downtown New Westminster. One-, two, and three-bedroom plans priced from $229,900. Presentation centre and display suite open noon to 5 p.m. daily at 659 Columbia Street. For more information visit bosaproperties.com or call 604.522.2583. MARCH 6 - 20, 2015 NEW CONDO GUIDE 37

StationOne The New Maple Ridge

I

f you’re one of the people who’ve been watching the corner of 227th Street and Brown in downtown Maple Ridge, your patience is about to pay off. Why? Because on March 7th, StationOne celebrates the grand opening of its sales centre and two show suites. Pure Modern From the street, StationOne’s stand out architecture has a crisp, modern angularity with dramatic overhangs, spacious balconies and horizontal accents of what appear to be cedar but are actually eco-friendly HardiPlank — Frank Lloyd Wright meets West Coast BC. Even now, while it’s still under

construction, I can see how a four-storey, glass atrium will fill the front foyer with natural light — very fresh, very different. Celebrate Your ’Hood “Maple Ridge now has everything you’d expect from an urban centre,” says sales manager Al Hogarth as we head for the first display home. “And StationOne is quite literally a block or two from all of it — shops, restaurants, banks, the ACT Theatre. Downsizers love the convenience of living in such a walkable neighbourhood, and many first time buyers are realizing that since they don’t need a car, they can put the money they save toward their down payment.”

Homes For Living Well The first display home is two-bedroom boasting two full-sized sliding doors to a generous patio — a marriage of indoor and outdoor space I soon discover is a theme here at StationOne. There’s also a funky-looking, open den with desk and chair — perfect for a home office or study zone. It’s when we step into StationOne’s second home, though, that I discover a feature I’d be enjoying year round. From every room — including the kitchen — I have a clear view of the central courtyard currently being meticulously planted with greenery and shrubs. Morning lattés, evening wine with al fresco dining, whether I’m inside on the sofa or outside on a deck chair, there’s no question this is going to feel like a breath of spring in any season. Which gets me thinking that I’ll need to come back soon because I want to check out another local amenity — the soon to be reopened Witch of Endor Pub just round the corner.

StationOne offers at total of 80 oneand two-bedroom homes priced from $161,900 with 50 priced below $200,000. Display suites are open 2–7 p.m. weekdays and noon to 5 p.m. weekends (closed Fridays) at 12070 – 227th Street in Maple Ridge.

ust because you have a kid or a nine-to-five job doesn’t mean you have to lose your cool-factor. In a Langley neighbourhood where jogging strollers, soccer balls and minivans are plentiful, Exchange by Hayer Builders Group was created for a new generation of lifestyle buyers who love modern architecture, outdoor living and fresh design elements. “We wanted to do something totally new and different,” explains project manager Brandon Trent from Exchange’s new amenity building, complete with coffee bar and guest suite. “We built with the vision of giving young homebuyers everything they crave in a place to call home — lots of space, cool finishes and a real sense of community with garden plots, an outdoor playground and loads of visitor parking.” The real art of living comes with the

integration of huge rooftop patios in most homes which ooze with Cactus Club cool. Wired for an outdoor television and prewired speakers, they live like outdoor living rooms, saturated in afternoon sunshine and with views of Mount Baker and Golden Ears. “Come summer you can have a lot of fun up here — entertain, garden and even use it as your private yoga studio,” suggests Trent. Facing Richard Bulpitt Elementary, Exchange has modern curb appeal with an exterior delineated with horizontal lines using materials like cedar planks and black-framed floor-to-ceiling windows. The palette is deep and rich, while emphasizing earth tones. All 98 of the homes are two-bedroom floor plans ranging from 1,067 to 1,230 square feet with 10-foot ceilings on the main floor and nine-foot ceilings

on the bedroom level. Finished in one of two colour schemes, the look is contemporary with wide-plank floors and modern kitchens plucked fresh from a design magazine. Quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances and natural gas ranges are all included. All ensuite bathrooms feature frameless glass showers, undermount sinks and oversized porcelain tile floor.

With prices from the low $300,000s and monthly payments from $899, you might as well start packing. Grand Opening is Saturday March 21 from noon to 5 p.m. View the show homes, choose your floor plan and start living! Exchange is located at 7811 - 209th Ave. in Langley.

CONDO SENSE

Have a say in your community By Cameron McNeill

A

s we begin to prepare for an additional one million people predicted to migrate into Metro Vancouver over the next 30 years, the Mayors’ Council has developed an ambitious Transportation and Transit Plan called Regional Transportation Investments. Recognizing that our current system will not be able to keep up with the anticipated growth, this plan enables smart expansion through an economically sustainable model. The Transportation and Transit Plan is a $75 billion dollar plan that will include increasing bus services, building new infrastructure and maintaining existing infrastructure. The aim of the plan is to create less congestion and cleaner air for the Metro Vancouver area. If the plan is approved, two new rapid transit systems will be added. One will connect Surrey Centre with Guildford, Newton and Langley with a later expansion to Langley Centre. The other will be an underground extension of the Millennium Line along Broadway connecting VCC-Clark to Arbutus Street. A third notable part of the Transportation and Transit Plan is to rebuild the Pattullo Bridge to make a safer four lane structure. In order to implement the Transportation and Transit Plan, a new Metro Vancouver Congestion Improvement Tax — a 0.5% Government Sales Tax harmonized into the Provincial Sales Tax — has been proposed. By introducing an additional 0.5% tax it is estimated to generate $250 million per year over the next ten years. The remainder of the amount will

across Metro Vancouver and maximizing the efficiency of new and existing infrastructure and transit systems. A “No” vote will cause an interruption in infrastructure and transit growth for Metro Vancouver. This means more time and money will be wasted as transit passenger wait times increase and commute times rise as the region’s population grows over the next 30 years. Be sure to have your voice counted on this important issue. To register or update your voter registration information call 1-800-661-8683 or visit http://www.elections.bc.ca/ be subsidized by the provincial and federal governments. The mayors’ council estimates by implementing the new tax it will cost each household approximately $0.35 per day. When considering the number of people coming into the city and the huge benefits that all community members will reap, $0.35 seems like a small sacrifice to continue to make this region of the best places in the world to live. It’s up to you to have your say The Transportation and Transit Referendum is our opportunity to have a say in the future of our communities. Ballots will be sent by mail and will arrive in households by March 16. Voting will start when ballots are received and will come to an end on May 29, 2015. By voting “Yes” to the transit referendum voters will help keep Metro Vancouver livable, affordable and green, by helping minimize congestion

NEIGHBOURHOOD SPOTLIGHT

THE TOWNSHIP OF LANGLEY Rich history and a bright future FOR MANY WHO LIVE in the Greater Vancouver Area, the only way to own property is to move to the suburbs. Increasingly, however, certain neighbourhoods in the Lower Mainland are redefining what is thought of as suburban. The Township of Langley certainly qualifies as one such place. Although suburbs are typically populated as a city sprawls out, Langley was one of the first locations in BC settled by Europeans. As such, it has a rich cultural heritage reflected in the variety of architectural styles that save it from being monotonous. 54 NEW CONDO GUIDE MARCH 6 - 20, 2015

By Diane Duflot

Ambling down Murray’s Crescent in Murrayville, for example, is like taking a walk through British Columbia’s colonial past: beautiful colonial-style buildings line the street, and a little parkette at the centre is the perfect spot for neighbours to gather. What’s more, the story of how Murrayville got its name is a source of pride for locals: in 1884 young Alexander Murray died in a heroic attempt to save a friend from drowning. Fort Langley is known as “The Birthplace of British Columbia,” and traders for the Hudson’s Bay Company were the first non-indigenous people to populate the area, beginning in

1827. When gold was discovered in the Fraser River in 1858, Fort Langley became an important supply station on the way up the river in search of gold. After the gold rush, Vancouver and New Westminster continued to grow into larger cities, while Langley remained a largely rural landscape. Although much of Langley maintains this rural feeling, consisting of farming territory and ALR land, recent development and increased population density in certain key areas have been catalysts for some change in the Township of Langley. The new Willoughby Town Centre,


When gold was discovered in the Fraser River in 1858, Fort Langley became an important supply station on the way up the river in search of gold. for example, which is being touted as Langley’s first truly walkable community, has plenty on hand for all, including delish sushi at Noma, a great cup of joe at Mattu’s Coffee & Tea, a health club, a liquor store, a grocery store, a drug store, and a nail salon. The family feel of this neighbourhood is a further selling point. Sanveer Shokar of Sunmark Homes explains, “On a Saturday, all you’ll see are joggers, people on bikes, and kids playing in parks.” Qualico’s Kensington is right on site here, and, as such, is a nobrainer for those who like to have everything right at their doorstep. It is

being touted as “Langley’s first truly walkable community,” according to Sales Manager Denise Lintott. She continues, “Not only does Kensington make all daily essentials accessible, but it offers more space at incredibly desirable price point.” With prices starting as low as $199,900 for 600 square feet, Kensington makes purchasing a condo with amenities nearby easy, even for younger buyers. This message has been appealing to downsizers and first-time buyers alike. First-time buyers find the price appealing, while the empty-nest set are attracted to the fact that they can

have single-level living here, without sacrificing as much space as they might have to elsewhere. Meanwhile, Hayer recently saw their 20 designer single-family home development, Radius, sell out in Murrayville, and are now offering Exchange, a collection of 98 elegant townhomes whose interiors don’t sacrifice any modern beauty or convenience. Murrayville is home to an eclectic variety of buildings and shops that recall the town’s history, while giving residents and visitors plenty of what they want in the here and now, and Brandon Trent, Project MARCH 6 - 20, 2015 NEW CONDO GUIDE 55


Manager at Fifth Avenue Marketing, is clearly excited about what’s going on here. “Not only is this a mature neighbourhood, but this, combined with the amount of ALR land nearby, means that the area won’t see too much construction, he says.” This means, of course, that this long-established quiet community will remain a peaceful haven for families.

Although it’s exciting to see the Township of Langley moving into the twenty-first century with these walkable communities, it’s also reassuring to know that it won’t lose it’s charm as a quiet place to live in the process: farms still abound here, and the volume of ALR land in the vicinity ensures that this community will always be surrounded by plenty of greenspace and fresh air.

SEE & DO Murrayville Hall, Murrayville This quaint blast from the past, built in 1928, is a sweet spot to host a wedding or other private family event. The hall can host up to 200 guests. The Princess and the Pea, a B&B across the street, is a charming place to take wedding photos.

Porter’s Bistro Coffee and Tea House, Murrayville Built as a general store in 1888, this “Old-fashion bakery,” which has been in the Porter family for over 90 years and was once a Canada Post is great place to stop for a sandwich, pastry, and a fair-trade coffee. Porter’s offers entertainment in the evenings, too. Stop by for some jazz and blues on Friday or Saturday evenings.

Watershed Café, Walnut Grove This sweet café gets flooded with gorgeous light on a sunny day and boasts a fireplace to warm up by on cooler days. If neither the sun nor the fireplace warms you up, you’re sure to warm up to the tasty menu which features yummy jacket potatoes, stuffed how you want ’em, sandwiches, and more. The mantra, posted on the counter, shares the philosophy of the place: “slow food, slow eating, slow down, breathe.” Words to live by.

Luxury homes see double-digit increase in sales By Lydia McNutt

L

uxury homes are selling like hotcakes in Canada’s major markets, according to Sotheby’s International Realty Canada’s latest Top-Tier Real Estate Report. That upward trend is expected to continue well into 2015, with historically low mortgage lending rates, a solid Canadian economy and an ongoing flow of immigration, migration and foreign investment into Vancouver, Calgary, the Greater Toronto Area and Montreal. The report examined properties sold in the $1-million-plus range between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31, 2014, analyzing sales volume, the number of days on market, and the percentage of homes that sold over asking price. Canada’s big four all saw doubledigit gains in the sale of luxury homes.

72 NEW CONDO GUIDE MARCH 6 - 20, 2015

The GTA led the pack with a 38-percent increase over 2013 – head and shoulders above Canada’s priciest market of Vancouver, which saw gains of 25 per cent, and Montreal’s 21 per cent. Calgary’s more modest increase of 16 per cent is attributed to fluctuations in the oil market, which introduced uncertainty to the luxury market. With demand up and inventory down, luxury homes favored sellers in 2014, showing a drop in days on market and a rise in the number of homes sold over asking price in the GTA and Vancouver. The steady rise in the benchmark price of a typical, detached singlefamily home (now well beyond the $1 million mark in what are considered “conventional” neighbourhoods) has

propelled the price of luxury homes upward in these cities as well. According to Sotheby’s International Realty Canada president and CEO Ross McCredie, “2014 was another benchmark year for high-end real estate in Canada, as demand continued to be fueled by historically low lending rates, a strong economy and steady immigration and migration into Canada’s major cities. We expect the market to remain strong in the GTA and Vancouver well into 2015, and for demand to outweigh available inventory, especially when it comes to detached single-family homes. The outlook for Montreal and Calgary is positive, but more conservative – both cities are heading into the year positioned to maintain balance.”

It’s the perfect blend of beauty and practicality. —Sarah Yada Seto

UPTOWN2 Upscale in West Coquitlam

G

et ready to look up… as in way up. Why? Because Uptown2 is coming out of the ground, and you’d better believe this elegantly appointed 30-storey highrise has a lot of folks excited. “Uptown’s first tower sold very quickly,” says Sarah Yada Seto, Bosa Properties’ marketing director. “And Uptown2 is definitely following the same trend. People who missed out on the first homes see the value and aren’t about to miss out again.” Connect with Your World “Buyers love Uptown2’s West Coquitlam location because it’s right on the Burnaby border so it’s easy to get everywhere, yet it’s very quiet,” Sarah says. Even better, she adds, now that the Evergreen Line is well under construction, people are truly beginning to understand just

By Susan M Boyce

how connected Uptown2 will be to everywhere. “You’re barely a block from the new Burquitlam SkyTrain Station, walking distance to several parks, Lougheed Town Centre is just down the road, and it’s a short, easy drive or bus ride to three higher education facilities: SFU, Douglas College, and BCIT.” Sarah’s also thrilled to announce that a brand new, 50,000-squarefoot major chain grocery will be as close as an elevator ride from your front door. “This is so much more than having a convenience store where you can grab milk and bread,” she says enthusiastically. “Right on the ground level of your building, you’ll be able to find everything from local, organic produce and fresh flowers to specialty foods from around the world. We’re excited to bring this great amenity to the neighbourhood.”

Invest in Yourself Naturally, at Uptown2 you’ll get all the luxurious features you’ve come to expect from Bosa Properties: marble backsplashes, integrated cabinetry, custom closet organizers, and full-sized European-style appliances. “But thanks to Bosa’s long history of expertise, these homes are affordable too,” Sarah says. “It’s the perfect blend of beauty and practicality.” And here’s a bonus: multiple studies suggest homes built near a SkyTrain typically have higher resale value than homes in other locations. Get Fit When you’re ready to get serious about health, Uptown2 has what it takes to satisfy. Right on site will be a 2,135-square-foot Wellness Pavilion with yoga studio and fully equipped gym. After your workout, take your pick between the infrared sauna or steam room, relax, and let the day melt away. Uptown2’s presentation centre and display suite are located directly opposite the site at 581 Clarke Road in West Coquitlam and open noon to 5 p.m. daily. Floorplans range from oneto three-bedroom homes with prices starting at $284,900.

fact, the over-50s are some of the biggest adopters of this lifestyle. If you make transit reliable, frequent and cost-effective, people use it because it makes sense. When I need to get from Wesgroup’s downtown office to our Brewery District project in New Westminster, it takes me 27 minutes by SkyTrain. I can get to Metrotown in just over a quarter of an hour or Richmond in 20 minutes. Why would I drive?

Wesgroup’s Brewery District in New Westminster links directly to the Sapperton SkyTrain Station and has thriving retail already in place.

TRANSIT IS THE NEW WATERFRONT Q&A

10 Minutes with Ben Taylor

I

t’s no secret: transit has become a big word in housing. More specifically, proximity to transit, especially high-speed transit like SkyTrain. Proximity to transit is now acknowledged as a significant driver in the decision to purchase process as well as an early indicator of areas with solid potential for rising values. This issue, New Condo Guide chats with Ben Taylor, director of sales at Wesgroup, about why he believes transit-oriented living is the way of the future and a solid investment. As a developer, Wesgroup has always embraced the concept of transitoriented communities. Why are you such enthusiastic supporters? Over the last five to 10 years there’s been a huge cultural shift in the way

By Susan M Boyce

people view transit. The days when riding the bus was considered a taboo subject because it wasn’t cool are long gone. In many ways, transit is like the new waterfront — everyone wants to be close to it and on it. And that’s true of all generations. Look around and you’ll see more and more young people who aren’t buying a car or even getting their driver’s license, because the cost of owning a vehicle is one they aren’t willing to take on. For the older generation, it’s often just easier to get around by transit — in

For homebuyers, is there a magic number that defines “proximity” to transit? In practical terms, think about carrying groceries or a couple of bottles of wine home after a long day at work. For most people, 800 metres is still relatively comfortable — but more than half a kilometre and it doesn’t really feel like you’re that close. What about price? Does this “new waterfront” cost more? It depends on the area, but yes, most properties located directly on a transit node command a slightly higher price and often appreciate more rapidly than the surrounding neighbourhoods — which can be great as an investment. For example, in Burquitlam, prices rose once construction of the Evergreen Line was actually underway. The same thing happened along the Cambie Corridor. TransLink also predicts that of the 1.2 million people who will move to Metro Vancouver in the next 30 years, 60 per cent of them will live within 800 metres of a rapid transit station. That tells me demand for homes around transit is going to continue increasing which will keep that upward pressure on prices consistent over time — so again, that’s good for people who buy early. Taken another Ben Taylor, director way, if you look at of sales at Wesgroup. sales and rental figures, you’ll see both those numbers typically


Empire at QE Park by Intergulf is one of the many projects taking advantage of exceptional transit along the Cambie Corridor.

drop as soon as a property is outside that 800-metre radius from a transit hub — exactly the same as prices fall sharply as you move away from the waterfront. I’ve seen one-bedroom apartments rent for as much as $200 less than a similar product located just down the street but adjacent to a SkyTrain Station. So while you may pay a bit more for a property located directly on transit initially, you’re also getting a lot more long term value. Many developments are now integrating a SkyTrain station directly into the building — much the way the Sapperton Station flows directly into the plaza at Brewery District. Is this a trend you see continuing? Yes. I believe it just makes sense for developers to work in collaboration with TransLink and the municipalities. Designing with integrated transit in mind is no different than designing communities with dedicated outdoor areas, integrated retail and coffee shops, or adequate bike parking. It’s design on a human scale that creates a more diverse, more vibrant living environment. And that means better communities for everyone. For information on all Wesgroup communities including Brewery District and River District in South Vancouver, visit wesgroup.ca.

Modello is Boffo Development’s newest addition to Metrotown and will incorporate part of the city’s Art Walk.

Romer’s Burger Bar in Wesgroup’s River District is a local favourite in all seasons.

TAXING ISSUES

Taxes paid, money owed By Henry Choo Chong

Q|

Q|

My wife and I recently welcomed her elderly parents into our home. They lived in north Simcoe and we are in Richmond Hill. They loved their home; unfortunately they can no longer maintain it on their own. We can financially and physically help them in their senior years. Can we deduct the money we give them for living expenses? Where and how on our tax return? Ron and Beth, Richmond Hill

I recently sold a real estate investment property. How much income tax will I pay? I calculated I made approximately $80,000. Karim, Mississauga

A|

A|

The Baby Boomer generation may have to put condo living on hold for several years. Many boomers have the financial responsibility of not just university kids but aging parents too. Our generation (the “Sandwich Generation”) is blessed with having the people most close to us at home – our children and parents. Unfortunately, neither Ottawa nor Ontario provide a deduction for your financial assistance. However, they do provide a “caregiver” tax credit. You may qualify to claim a $4,223 federal tax credit and a similar provincial amount. This will reduce your federal and provincial income taxes by $633 and $210 respectively. You should note, parents must be at least 65 years old and mentally or physically dependant on their adult child.

Q|

My kids attend pre-school and elementary private institutions. The cost is astronomical but my wife and I believe it is best for our kids. How much of the tuition may I deduct and how? Alan, Markham

A|

Generally, private school tuition is not tax deductible. An attempt was made several years past to deduct private school tuition; however it was politically unpopular and was reversed the following year. Fees to education institutions may be deductible as childcare and claimed by the lower income spouse. A receipt must be provided by the school for the portion of the fees that are considered “childcare.” Additionally, depending if there is some religious affiliation, part of the fees may be allocated as a charitable donation. Again, the institution must provide receipts and qualify for charitable status.

The opinions and views expressed herein are those of the author and not those of New Condo Guide. New Condo Guide does not necessarily endorse or encourage any specific tax strategies. Please consult a tax professional for advice specific to your particular situation. 84 NEW CONDO GUIDE MARCH 6 - 20, 2015

Real estate that is sold for more than its cost may result in a capital gain for the individual. Fifty per cent of the gain must be included in your income tax return in the year of sale. Using your figures and assuming you have other income, such as from employment, we can use a 40-per-cent tax rate. Therefore, the $80,000 capital gain is reported. Forty thousand (50 per cent of the gain) must be included in income. This is taxed at 40 per cent. Your tax obligation on the gain is $16,000 (40,000 x 40 per cent) to Canada Revenue Agency. Consult your accountant/tax advisor before committing to pay any income taxes.

An organized effort By Jane Lockhart

L

iving in a small space means maximizing storage and ridding yourself of unneeded items. It’s sometimes tempting to take everything with you for those “just in case” moments. But starting fresh has its advantages when it comes to making the most of storage options to max out their usefulness. No matter if you are moving into a new house or condo, no one ever says they have enough closet space, so making the most of what you have is critical. Investing

86 NEW CONDO GUIDE MARCH 6 - 20, 2015

in closet organizers in the bedroom that provide shelves, both short and long, hanging as well as drawers and shoe storage will be invaluable. You will be happy you took the time to do this as you move in and create a new life and new routines. Leaving a closet undone will simply waste space in the end. Another area to make sure you maximize space is in the front hall closet. Being Canadian means we have a lot of different seasonal coats and footwear and this needs to go somewhere!

Think about adding shelves, drawers and hooks to this closet as well. Make sure the doors to the closet are swing doors if possible and not sliders, as sliders can make closet access difficult. Another place to create useful organization is the linen closet. Be sure to update this space with lots of shelving prior to using it. A tip that will help maximize your storage within your linen closet is to tightly fold each sheet set and then place them inside the corresponding pillowcase. This will


There are great accessories that can be added within kitchen cabinets and under sinks for better organization and easier access help you stay organized, allow you to see all of the linen sets and will keep everything together. Store unused items in bins that fit under a bed, or purchase a new bed with built-in drawers that tuck under the mattress. This is a big area, so make sure it is efficiently used – particularly in a condo! This is a good place to store out-of-season items, as they will be out of sight and mind until they are needed. If you have the height and budget, build upward! Create a wall unit that goes to the ceiling so you not only elevate the visual height, you take advantage of this extra storage space. In the area, you can store items such as CDs, DVDs, books and photo albums. These items can take up lots of space

if not stored efficiently, so make sure to buy storage solutions specifically created for these items. If your home is being built brand new, request additional outlets in easyto-access places to cut down on the clutter of power cords. Consider adding extra receptacles under the cabinets in kitchens to maximize counter space, and a few extra in the bed and bathroom, so that you have enough space for chargers, your hair dryer and shaver. And never forget, there are great accessories that can be added within kitchen cabinets and under sinks for better organization and easier access. Good organization may take a little more time and money in the beginning, but it will definitely be worth the effort in the end.
