When I heard Polygon was working alongside renowned architect Keith Hemphill of RHA to design a new community of waterfront townhomes and apartments, my ears perked. Then when I learned the location was next to Cates Park with its sandy beach, abundance of marine wildlife, and pristine waters for paddle boarding and kayaking, I was quick to register my interest online.
Evidently I wasn’t the only one imagining the beauty of living every day like I was on vacation! Cates Landing has received overwhelming interest since it was announced Polygon would be launching sales this summer, says Goldie Alam, senior vice president marketing.
“This is a really rare opportunity for waterfront living and the interest from local buyers has been amazing. They’ve been watching and waiting for an opportunity to downsize in the community they know and love.
POSTCARD VIEWS AND A SEASIDE SETTING MAKE FOR A SOUGHT-AFTER ADDRESS
The boutique community of just 95 homes will be built alongside Cates Park, a 20-hectare recreational area near the 4000-block of Dollarton Highway, east of the Second Narrows Bridge. Set to be the jewel of this Mt. Seymour neighbourhood, homeowners will enjoy panoramic views of the calm waters of Burrard Inlet to the south and direct access to the wonders of Cates Park to the east. It’s the kind of setting that makes you feel you’ve traveled up the coast of B.C., when in fact you’re just a short drive from Downtown Vancouver or the ski slopes at Mt. Seymour.
Fronting the residences, a waterfront trail will connect the community to Cates Park and provide easy access to outdoor activities. Down the road, the village of Deep Cove awaits with its marina, bike shop, summer outdoor concerts, and variety of restaurants serving everything from the catch-of-the-day to Mediterranean pizza.
It’s this beautiful natural setting and its lifestyle options which inspired the West Coast modern architectural style of Cates Landing. Oriented towards the water, each home will showcase natural lighting through oversized windows and open floor plans will emphasize the architect’s desire for outdoor living areas to blend with interior spaces. A sophisticated aesthetic is created with generous roof overhangs and durable hardie board siding, while the integration of natural materials like cultured stone will give the homes an elegant west coast feel.
READY TO DOWNSIZE: SPACIOUS CONDOS AND TOWNHOMES FROM 1,080 TO 3,000 SQUARE FEET.
While floor plans are still being finalized, Goldie at Polygon says the two and three-bedroom apartments will appeal to downsizers and professionals alike and be approximately to 1,080 to 1,470 square feet, while townhomes will be around 3,000 square feet. Inside, homeowners will be surrounded by thoughtful details including radiant in-floor heating, expansive windows and entertainment-sized patios with gas outlets for year-round barbecuing. As the social hub of every home, professionally designed kitchens will function well and look fabulous with premium stainless steel appliances, pantries, engineered stone countertops, marble backsplashes and custom designed cabinetry.
Having built award-winning communities since 1980, Polygon is attune to the amenities most valuable to homebuyers and has tailored them at Cates Landing to include an area to wash off bikes and dogs, storage for kayaks, and even a guest suite for out-of-town visitors. Polygon’s renowned customer service team and Traveler’s Guarantee Company of Canada 2-5-10 warranty provides further reassurance and peace of mind.
The limited collection of waterfront homes will offer one of a kind beauty, and a last of its kind opportunity.
