North Vancouver is the epitome of West Coast contemporary architecture — wooden beams, expansive glass and vast views.
West Quay by Polygon fits right in. This new collection of one-, two-, and three-bedroom residences truly embodies West Coast contemporary design.
Designed by Ray Letkeman Architects Inc, it’s easy to see that the inspiration for these homes was the striking geography and the nature-loving lifestyle of the North Shore. Warm wood accents mixed with bold, modern elements make this new Polygon community an exquisite example of contemporary West Coast architecture. Lobbies will boast timber supported canopies, as well as a spacious lounge with a cosy fireplace, imported stone flooring, and views to the outdoor courtyard.
“We’re a great example of West Coast architecture in a gorgeous and convenient setting,” says Grace Lim, sales manager at West Quay.
Inside each home, thoughtful design and quality details make the homes a pleasure to live in every day.
Living spaces boast rich laminate flooring, and residents can choose from two designer selected colour schemes. Kitchens feature engineered stone counters, custom cabinetry and a sleek, stainless steel appliance package.
Spa-inspired bathrooms boast some great unexpected details. Showers feature a second shower head with wand, a built-in toiletries niche and integrated bench seating.
Most ensuites also include a custom medicine cabinet hidden behind a towel bar, along with a deluxe linen closet that houses a built-in ironing board and laundry hamper.
One of the most impressive features at West Quay is the view offered from each home’s large deck or spacious patio. Top-floor homes feature views of downtown Vancouver, Burrard Inlet, English Bay and the North Shore mountains. Oversized balconies and patios give residents a place to appreciate those views from the outside.
Two-bedroom homes at West Quay are priced from $419,900.
The West Quay sales centre at 21 Lonsdale Ave., in North Vancouver is open from noon to 6 p.m. daily, except Friday.
ENJOY A BUSTLING COMMUNITY
North Vancouver is bustling with activities all year round, and Lower Lonsdale is no exception. As the weather warms up, residents are getting out of the house and enjoying the area’s parks, shopping and community events.
On May 10, get ready for Mother’s Day at Lonsdale Quay, one of the many community events North Vancouver has to offer. It’s one of the many neighbourhood activities residents of West Quay, the newest collection of apartment residences in Lower Lonsdale, can enjoy.
In honour of North Shore moms, the Lonsdale Quay market will be offering complimentary tea and scones from local shops the Blue Teapot, and Cobs Bakery.
“Year-round, there’s never a lack of things to do in Lower Lonsdale, but West Quay residents are really going to love spring and summer in this neighbourhood,” says Grace Lim, sales manager at West Quay.
Lonsdale Quay alone is a fun afternoon of browsing interesting shops, tasting different fresh foods, and taking in the amazing views of downtown Vancouver from across Burrard Inlet.
This month, the city of North Vancouver signed on to having a four-block-long slip-and-slide at Lower Lonsdale’s annual Car Free Day on Aug. 8. If bringing a giant slip-and-slide in for the community isn’t the definition of a fun-loving city, we don’t know what is.
West Quay is situated in a prime location in the heart of Lower Lonsdale, directly across from Waterfront Park.
At the Shipyards site, at the base of Lonsdale Avenue, a new community hub is in the works. It’s slated to include an outdoor public skating rink, a water park, an event stage and commercial space. For those who are looking for a place to stroll, the Shipyards site connects to the spirit trail.
ACCESS TO NATURE
North Vancouver is the perfect place to feel removed, quiet and cozy, while retaining excellent accessibility to all the highlights of the region — buzzing downtown Vancouver and the North Shore mountains.
Residents at West Quay won’t need to drive downtown. Located just steps away from West Quay, the SeaBus gets you there in about 12 minutes.
Looking to get away to some nature instead? West Quay residents will have easy access to all the great places to hike, bike, ski or boat, including Grouse Mountain, Capilano Suspension Bridge, Lynn Canyon, Mount Seymour, Lower Seymour Conservation Reserve, and Deep Cove.
North Vancouver is a hub for nature trails, from half-hour strolls to nine-hour hikes on the North Shore mountains.
