The North Shore's Lower Lonsdale is one of the most vibrant neighbourhoods in Greater Vancouver, offering urban living on glorious waterfront. This is where you'll find West Quay, Polygon's latest collection of distinguished apartment residences.
It's an exciting time to be living in Lower Lonsdale. Locals can shop for fresh seafood and produce at the landmark Lonsdale Quay Market, enjoy dinner at countless local restaurants, or have a craft beer at Green Leaf Brewing Co. or the newly opened Tap & Barrel at nearby Shipbuilders' Square. To add to all of the existing amenities, a public plaza with a seaside skating rink is in the works, along with new restaurants, shops, and spas.
Imagine living just minutes from the local skiing, snowboarding, hiking, biking, and running trails of the North Shore mountains with just a 12-minute commute to downtown Vancouver via SeaBus. This will be the reality for West Quay residents. And the neighbourhood offers spectacular views of the city skyline, Vancouver Harbour, Burrard Inlet, the Lions Gate Bridge, and English Bay.
"The location is amazing," says Grace Lim, Sales Manager at Polygon's West Quay. "You're connected to the entire North Shore but you're also connected to downtown. Living at West Quay really means access to nature and city life. You get the best of both."
West Quay is designed by award-winning Ray Letkeman Architects Inc., and is a limited collection of one-, two- and three-bedroom apartment homes reflecting West Coast contemporary style. Some homes also feature breathtaking city, mountain, and water views.
Inside, airy, nine-foot living- and dining-room ceilings create an inviting atmosphere to come home to. Add to this the sophisticated interior-design details such as laminate wood flooring with radiant in-floor heating, sleek stainless-steel appliances, custom flat-panel cabinetry in two designer colour schemes, and engineered stone countertops.
Most ensuites offer a luxurious oversized spa-style shower with frameless shower doors, a ceiling rainshower head and a second showerhead with wand, built-in toiletries niche and integrated bench seating; other ensuites also benefit from a convenient linen cupboard complete with built-in ironing board and laundry hamper.
Homeowners can entertain in style in West Quay's gourmet kitchens, which come complete with central islands perfect for holiday entertaining. Enjoy stainless-steel appliances by KitchenAid and Fisher & Paykel, including a fully integrated Energy Star dishwasher and a deep French-door refrigerator with adjustable glass shelving; electric wall oven with even-heat technology; and a five-burner gas cooktop with full-width cast-iron grates.
Residents will also enjoy the added service of an onsite resident manager and the convenience of both dog- and car-wash stations.
For outdoor enjoyment, you can spend time in the grand courtyard with plenty of seating for an outdoor picnic.
West Quay provides luxurious living in an unbelievable setting, where nature, restaurants, and shops and services are all just outside your front door.
"West Quay has it all right at your doorstep," says Lim. "Its central location makes it an ideal home for everyone from first-time home-buyers to downsizing couples."
The first building at West Quay is sold out and the final building is now selling. Two-bedroom homes are priced from $449,900. Be sure to visit their sales office complete with display suite at 21 Lonsdale Avenue in North Vancouver, open from noon-6pm daily (except Friday). For more information visit polyhomes.com.
