As a realtor, Fraser Roberts is privy to some of the Lower Mainland’s best new developments.
When it came time to purchase a condo, the 30-something chose Hamilton Village.
“I considered buying here in the first building and I kicked myself for not doing so,” says Roberts, with RE/MAX Westcoast.
Roberts purchased an 800-square-foot two-bedroom condo with expansive views from his patio.
“Everything you want in amenities will be here—30 minutes from everywhere in the Lower Mainland,” says Roberts. “This is going to be such a great community and this is the time to get in on the ground floor.”
Welcome to award-winning Oris Consulting Ltd.’s Hamilton Village, where walkable boulevards, tree-lined paths, and a true High Street connects you to everything an urbanite would want, with prices starting at $499,900 (only $638 per square foot) for a one-bedroom and den.
Hamilton Village’s East building is an eye-catching five-storey mixed use building featuring a collection of 85 condos with commercial space on the ground floor. Designed by award-winning Rositch Hemphill Architects, the modern building is accentuated with extensive glazing, stone and cement cladding, and a dramatic metal and glass canopy crowning entrance.
In another first, Hamilton Village has partnered with RBC to offer buyers an unparalleled program. According to Johanna Williams, RBC mortgage specialist, this program will pre-qualify buyers today and guarantee a firm rate for up to three years.
“This gives buyers a lot of protection,” says Williams. “Once, you receive a firm approval on your mortgage, and if someone loses their job during the construction phase, you are still guaranteed your mortgage.”
In addition, RBC is providing free of charge, life and disability insurance. So, in the event one of the buyers passes away, on the day of completion, that home is clear title.
“We will pay off the mortgage up to $750,000,” says Williams. “In the event of critical illness or disability, you can have peace of mind knowing your mortgage payments will be paid for up to two years.”
At the epi-centre of this master planned community is a walkable village boasting boutique shops, restaurants, cafes and all of the services urbanites need, including a grocer, dentist, doctor, pharmacy, and more. Families will love the sizable on-site children’s playground and fantastic gym facilities as well as the neighbouring community centre with tennis courts and soccer fields.
“Hamilton Village is the bullseye of the Lower Mainland. Connectivity is huge and this neighbourhood is second to none,” says Sean Lawson, director of marketing for Hamilton Village Real Estate. “Parents will be able to walk their kids to school only a stone’s throw away. Hamilton Village is really the city’s best kept secret.”
Thoughtfully curated, Hamilton Village condos, range from one-bedroom and den, two- bedroom, two-bedroom and den and three-bedrooms, offering a seamless blend of West coast inspired contemporary architecture. These beautifully appointed condos’ expansive windows allow for natural sunlight to pour in, while the generous terraces and private balconies provide a bird’s eye view to mountain vistas and riverfront sunsets—ideal for barbecue nights or to simply enjoy a glass of wine while soaking in spectacular vistas near the riverfront.
That’s not all—each home features nine-foot ceilings (some with vaulted living rooms), quality wide-plank laminate flooring, an environmentally friendly, hydronic heating and cooling system and secure underground parking.
Aspiring chefs will fall in love with the inviting and airy kitchens, highlighting pantry cabinets with modern accents and wine rack (most plans), polished quartz countertops with handset full-height tile backsplash, energy efficient quality stainless steel appliances and breakfast bar (most homes).
“We have already sold 40% of the condos and filled several of the commercial spaces in the East Building,” says Lawson. “Hamilton Village reminds me of the early days of London Landing in Steveston. I expect a similar price appreciation trajectory as the village develops and becomes more desirable, creating a place for neighbours to hang their hat and enjoy the neighbourhood amenities.”
Act now while prices and interest rates are this low. Anticipated completion date is end of 2023.
