TOP 3 RICHMOND BC CONDO LIST

Another tough selection, the Richmond BC real estate market is exciting with so many new condo developments. 2 of the 3 in our Top 3 Richmond BC condo list are centrally located in the Richmond City Centre neighbourhood while the other is a bit more unique in terms of location. Here they are:

One of the top 3 Richmond condo projects that we like is BRAVO City Centre living. Located just 2 blocks away from Richmond Centre shopping and amenities, the new Richmond BRAVO condo tower is brought to you by ATI Construction Ltd, a notable and dependable builder of boutique and high-quality homes in the Lower Mainland. The BRAVO Richmond condos will be affordable and will also showcase very unique and modern architecture in the mid-rise offering. As well, the interior design at BRAVO Richmond Centre living is by Trepp Design, an award winning firm. The MANDARIN RESIDENCES Richmond City Centre is the prime condo project for this location set beautifully next to the Brighouse Station SkyTrain. Here, you will find high quality interior design, amazing architecture and a great location. The two 18 storey high-rise towers at the Mandarin Residences Richmond City Centre real estate development is also a collaboration between 2 of the best developers in town: Wall Financial and Fairborne Developers. In addition, Fairborne will likely make it to the top 3 North Shore condo projects once we have time to launch it! Great job! Affordability, floor plans and interior features is why the new AZALEA at the Gardens Richmond condo project makes it to the Top 3 list.
