Northwest revitalizes South Cambie Village with more homes and more amenities

Vancouver, September 21, 2014 – In the heart of the rapidly changing intersection of Cambie and Marine, Onni is preparing to launch a new development that will add even more density and vitality to the evolving neighborhood. Northwest is a two tower, LEED Gold development of 340 homes on Ash Park, complemented by ground floor retail.

Kitty corner from two other major developments already under construction, Marine Gateway and MC2, Onni's Northwest completes the reinvention of the Cambie and Marine intersection and promises to renew interest in an area now known as South Cambie Village. "It's been a few years since anything new has come to market in this area so people have been waiting eagerly for this launch," says Onni's Nick Belmar.

Since the opening of the Canada Line in 2009, the former industrial area has been facing rapid transformation. The Marine Gateway development across from Northwest will include an exciting, pedestrian-friendly, outdoor mall and retail hub, expected to complete next year. The new retail village has recently announced it will be home to a massive,11-theatre Cineplex, an Osaka Supermarket, Starbucks, A&W, TD Canada Trust, CIBC, BMO, liquor store, Subway, Irish pub and more.

"Northwest will offer a truly unique residential experience," says Belmar. "Residents can take advantage of proximity to the retail village, the Canada Line, the bike lanes and still come home to a quiet location backing onto a park and elementary school. It's an investment no- brainer for downsizers already living in the area, for investors and for parents who want proximity to good schools and a westside address."

In the past few years, demand for homes in the South Cambie Village has grown in part because of increased awareness that proximity to transit increases the value of real estate, but also because of the popularity amongst young people living in communities that offer all the amenities, eliminating the need for a car.

With prices starting at $269,900, Northwest represents some of the best value offered on Vancouver's westside. With great views of the Fraser River, Vancouver Island, the city and the North Shore mountains, homes at Northwest are just 9 minutes to the airport and 15 minutes to downtown on the Canada Line. Northwest is also at the centre of cycling routes in every direction, including the pedestrian and bicycle bridge to Richmond just 2 blocks away.

With curved foot bridges past water features and curbed balconies on both east and west towers, Northwest will be an architecturally beautiful addition to the area. There will also be a podium level, roof deck connecting both towers and featuring garden plots and BBQs, as well as a fitness centre party room and 24-hour concierge. Integrated appliances, wood cabinetry, marble flooring and a complete heating and cooling system for every unit are some of the features of the Northwest homes.
