Listraor Vancouver Real Estate Developers Profile

Vancouver real estate developer Listraor is now launching two projects including the Carrington Oakridge townhomes and the new Burnaby Laurel townhomes for sale.Building the exceptional is everyday business for the real estate development firm Listraor according to Susan B. of the New Homebuyer Guide. Craig Rowland, principal of Listraor Developers says at the future for his company will be a continued focus on intimate, infill real estate projects in Vancouver, a development style he clearly enjoys bringing from vision to reality. One property in White Rock real estate market is already in the beginning stages of planning, and Craig says he’s keeping a close watch on Ladner and Steveston, both neighbourhoods he believes would b efun, challenging and certainly a great way to further distinguish Listraor in the market place in the Lower Mainland real estate market. Listraor is found on the web at According to the article, “It’s a different perspective on inner city neighbourhoods that Listraor real estate Vancouver developers have adopted over the years. Where others see spaces of a few adjoining city lots, often overgrown or topped with tired houses, Craig Rowland sees the opportunity, the chance to create vibrant new mini-communities within the fabric of a larger city such as Greater Vancouver. Principal of Listraor, a Vancouver based real estate development firm, Craig’s career begin three decades ago as a city planner first with Burnaby and then Vancouver. After 14 years, Craig moved to the corporate world taking on senior positions with two fo Vancovuer’s most respected real estate developers. But it was in 1994 when he founded the Vancouver based Listraor real estate development firm that Craig discovered his true calling – to develop, and build boutique infill townhomes in inner city neighbourhoods. Since then, Listraor has completed six Vancouver real estate developments with two more currently under construction. The challenge Craig says, is finding sites that will accommodate medium sized townhome developments that will fit with the context of the surrounding architecture while still introducing a sense of individuality and exclusivity. But more than that, he belives that the choice to focus on infill design also makes practical and social sense of this Vancouver LIstraor real estate developer. Quality is of utmost importance to every Vancouver Listraor real estate project. According to Craig, “Because we are both the developer and the builder, we are able to control all aspects – from materials and finishing details to sub trades to pricing – so we are able to consistently deliver a superior quality produt. That quality if definitely reflected in a host of various details both inside and out, signature features of Listraor Vancouver developers. With large outdoor living spaces and with extensive sound proofing and spacious home designs, Listraor property developers lead the way for construction in the Lower Mainland. Two New Choices from Listraor: As if highlighting Listraor’s ability to encompass a variety of styles, Listraor Vancouver real estate developers two current property developments are worlds apart in architectural detailing. In the heart of Vancouver’s prestigious Oakridge real estate district, Carrington by Listraor developers is a collection of 30 two and three bedroom townhomes that blend classic tudor exteriors with distinctive West Coast features including rooftop decks, hardwood floors and brick exteriors. Across town and tucked onto a sloped property on border of Burnaby reale state market, Larurel will offer only 24 townhomes by Listraor real estate developers baosting a distinctly modern aesthetic. The look is crisp, agular and uncluttered. Rooflines are flat so all suites can enjoy views across to the Nroth Shore – not surprisingly, roof top decks as well will be generous.

Walk To Main, Vancouver Real Estate

Springbank Developments with Forrester Development Corp have partnered to prepare a proposal for a new pre-sales Vancouver apartment complex called Walk to Main apartments that is being brought to a public hearing.Springbank Developments is pleased to partner with Forrester Development Corp. to bring you another Built Green BC community. In July, 2006 we held an open house where we invited members of the public to give us their input on our proposal for the Walk to Main Vancouver condo apartment development. Based on the comments we received from the public and from the planning department we redesigned the Vancouver Walk to Main real estate project to more closely reflect the desires of all parties involved. These changes included: 1. a 25% reduction in number of pre-sales Vancouver new homes which will result in a corresponding reduction in traffic and parking problems in the neighbourhood. 2. a significant increase in the amount of greenspace within the Walk to Main Vancouver property project and abutting neighbouring properties. 3. the addition of a community garden along the lane for our residents and 4. the addition of a second co-op parking stall to be made available to an approved automobile co-op for the use of all of its members. The Vancouver Walk to Main apartment condo community in its current configuration consists of 24 one, two and three bedroom pre-construction townhomes designed to provide generous open spaces, private outdoor space, a community garden. Ground level single storey Walk to Main Vancouver homes will be ideal for those who can no longer maintain a house but want to stay in the neighbourhood. Two level pre-sales Vancouver homes will fill a need for young families and 3 level three bedroom presale Walk to Main Vancouver new homes will accommodate a growing family. While we are excited about our plans and our ability to bring a new housing form to this neighbourhood, we are particularly proud of our commitment to making this community healthier and more environmentally sustainable.

More about the Vancouver Main Street Homes Springbank Developments

We will be implementing a variety of initiatives to achieve these goals and these have been outlined on separate pages (it should be noted that this is not a complete list of initiatives that we are going to implement the Springbank Developments Walk to Main townhomes development. We are continuing to investigate viable alternatives to current construction practices). While not a requirement under the green building program for the pre-construction Walk to Main Green townhomes we have chosen to adopt, a key component to lessening the impact on the world we live in is site selection. There’s not much point in building a “green” project on productive farm land miles from the nearest shopping or employment opportunities. This Springbank Developments property has the following characteristics that we feel make it ideal an ideal candidate for eco-density: 1. underutilized land area, 2. proximity to transit, 3. proximity to shopping, 4. proximity to recreation, and 5. proximity to employment. We are interested in your comments on this project. Please take the time to provide us with your input. Comments can be provided here or by clicking the "Register" button near the top of the screen.

Black swan Kitsilano Savvy and tradition by S. Boyce for the New Homebuyers Guide of Greater Vancouver. Okay, I might be a just a wee bit prejudiced, but to me there’s no other neighbourhood quite like Kits in Vancouver real estate market. There’s an eclectic vibrancy to this Westside Vancouver community at blackSwan, a sense of avant-garde artistry blended with a fun-loving, visionary outlook on life. Some people call it the Kits Vibe. And capturing the hearts of homebuyers who feel the same way is a new iteration of a much-loved classic. Recrods of the 1970s a favourite hangout for music lovers and artists and a place where you never quite knew what treasure you might discover, the new Black Swan Kitsilano apartment homes is an utterly contemporary, boutique style condominium at the corner of Bayswater and fourth Avenue in the Kitsilano real estate market. Welcome to the Kits Neighbourhood. As Susan gets ready to leave, Joe and I compare a few notes about the many other things that make BlackSwan such a special location. We agree it’s less than a ten-minute walk to the waterfront of Kitsliano real estate and that some of the best Greek Restaurants in the city are found just down the street from the blackSwan apartment homes by OrcaWest Developments. And weshare notes on Vancovuer’s thriving coffee culture though we can’t quite come to a meting of the minds on which is the best coffee shop around the Black Swan Kits apartments. It’s all part of the Kits Vibe and it’s all good. The pre-construction Black Swan condo homes offers a total of 27 presale residences in Vancouver ranging from studios to spacious, two bedroom homes. Prices start from the low $300s and the display suite and BlackSwan presentation centre is open daily now at 2008 Bayswater in Kitsilano.

Where Design Meets Art at BlackSwan Condos
Black Swan’s architecture is considered pure West Coast style, a blend of traditional brick façade with sophisticated glass and concrete for an eye catching streetscape that’s distintly part of the Kits real estate community. The choice of blackSwan floor plans is astonishing considering this pre-sales residence offers the exclusivity of only 27 pre-construction Vancouver condominium suites – everything from studios to two bedroom garden homes and penthouses with decks that are larger than most living rooms. And as sales manager Joe shows me through the Black Swan apartment complex, I can’t help but think what a great vantage point this would be for watching the Festival of Lights or sunsets in all four seasons. Inside the preconstruction Vancouver Black Swan Kits condos is meticulous attention to detail with bright open spaces and comfortable living rooms. Real wood cabinets, granite, stainless steel and other contemporary finishes are all part of the pricing for the Black Swan apartment Kitsilano homes in Vancouver, so all you need to choose is a floor plan and a unit in the building.

PNE Prize Homes for Vancouver Real Estate Giveaways!

The Vancouver PNE Prize Home 2008 is a magnificent multi-million dollar home complete with all the finest finishes and amenities that you would want in a 3300 square foot new home.What a prize! According to the 24 Hrs newspaper, It’s that time of year again. Time for one of Vancouver’s favourite housing traditions, the PNE prize home. This year’s 3,300 square foot home has a casual, almost whimsical flair that feels instantly comfortable and familiar. Think beachside cottage meets active, professional urbanite. The colour palette is soft – pastel blues, light charcoal, and sand- often with hings of metallic accents to give a richness and visual texture to this year’s PNE Prize Home in Vancouver real estate market giveaway. Furnishings and finishing’s are selected to give the illusion of being an eclectic treasure trove of family history. “After all, the cottage is where everything usually ends up,” says Ronnie Laan, designer and radio personality from the Lam Group. “We chose to create that fun, breezy look as we designed this PNE prize home.” Even the flooring has a tale to tell here. “the main floor is engineered lumber overlaid with hand-scraped, reclaimed wood some of it over 600 years old,” Laan says, pointing out several places where small squares that in another iteration were notched out for posts and other supports and have now been filled with wood. Other highlights also include ensuite faucets, resembling cut bamboo at the 2008 PNE Prize Home, the front door with leaded glass int eh design of an abstract lighthouse, a turreted girl’s bedroom in pale yellow with a French country manor armoire, a boys room with skateboard “graffiti” painted on one wall and a sassy attitutde to life in general, and an indoor sauna are highlights of this year’s Vancouver PNE Prize Home.

Outdoor spaces are huge-really. Like a poster for the era when neighbours popped by for lemonade and an afternoon chat, a rattan settee and chairs are grouped to one side of the wrap-around front porch at the PNE Prize Home in Vancouver real estate give away. But it’s the rear deck (made from eco-friendly composite material that nevers need painting) that best exemplifies today’s passion for outdoor living and wellness. Here you’ll find an outdoor dining/cooking area with freestanding heater, a therapeutic hot tub and a water reclamation system. As in previous years, the 2008 PNE Vancouver Prize Home is also fully SAFERhome certified, meaning its good looks and livability transcend the rigors of multi-generational living with stylish, carefree elan. Hallways of the Vancouver 2008 PNE Prize Home are wide and unobstructed, bathrooms and the kitchen have counters at varying heights to accommodate people of all sizes and ages; door handles are lever style for a more elegant look and easier use. Just one example of the latest technological innovations you’ll find here is the back door lock – a sleek, brushed still unit activated by fingerprint recognition at the new PNE Vancouver Prize Home for 2008. Tickets for the PNE prize home are five for $25 or 15 for $50. All proceeds support local charities. The PNE fair funs August 16 to September 1, 2008. For more information, log on at by S. Boyce.
