West Vancouver Real Estate - A Property Market in Transition
Forever the most expensive place to own a home in the Lower Mainland, West Vancouver real estate is coming out blazing with new projects that are focussed on densification of the Park Royal and Rodgers Creek areas of the city. With distinct neighborhoods already built out in Ambleside, Dundrave, the British Properties and other areas, the new West Vancouver property market focusses on sustainable housing, low-rise dense condo communities and other pre-construction master planned townhome neighbourhoods that make it more affordable to a larger number of homebuyers.

But don't get it wrong... the new consruction properties in West Vancouver will still command a huge dollar figure but you will be assured a great location, amazing features and finishes and outstanding living areas for your new home or condo, whichever you are looking for. Traditionally, most of the new development properties in West Vancouver's real estate market focussed on single-family homes built up teh North Shore mountains. This will continue as the shortage of land on the North Shore reaches a very critical level. However around the Park Royal grounds of West Vancouver, we have seen some recent luxury pre-construction condos being developed and planned, including the luxury Water's Edge residences as well as the up and coming Evelyn Park Royal condos on the North Shore. These will provide much needed housing on free hold land for purchasers or investors looking to rent out these new luxury homes. Other real estate builders and developers have focussed on the higher North Shore mountain communities to build the most luxurious and prestigiuos townhome and condo communities such as the Argyle, Boulder Court, and The British Properties by the Quigg Group. You can expect to pay a minimum of $700 per square foot for such residences .. and sometimes they command more than $1000/ sq ft as well.

The British Properties has always been a breathtaking place to visit and live. Now, with the latest release of home sites and lots as well as luxury West Vancouver condo townhomes and residences in the British Properties North Shore, you can enjoy this lifestyle for generations to come. The British Properties is land that was given to the family that built the Lions Gate Bridge and through years of rezoning and planning, the mountainside British Properties of West Vancouver real estate have become a haven for rich families and couples looking for a quieter and slower pace of life on the hillside. With the most amazing views of downtown Vancouver, the water and perched up on the mountainside, these luxury British Properties homes and apartment townhouses present a perfect residence. Many of these ultra-luxurious homes have the most amazing interior finishes with craftsman West Coast style architecture. The Quigg Group is one such West Vancouver luxury real estate developer who has built along the British Properties. Another great West Van release of land is Rodgers Creek development which will be on the north side of the Upper Levels Highway. Mountainside West Vancouver real estate is on the rise as waterfront property becomes unattainable for the normal family, so Rodgers Creek and the British Properties will become the next haven for luxury apartment homes and townhomes for West Vancouverites.
