You’ve probably heard about the developments going into the corner of Cambie and Marine Drive and how in the next few years, that intersection is going to turn into a cool, pedestrian village of condo dwellers who will be able to live, work and shop within a brand new community right on the Canada Line.
Now, in the heart of that rapidly changing intersection is a new condo development called Northwest that completes the reinvention of what’s becoming known as South Cambie Village. On the northwest corner (thus the name), backing onto a park and an elementary school, Onni’s new development will add even more density and vitality to the evolving neighborhood.
A two tower, LEED Gold development of 340 homes, complemented by ground floor retail, the development is kitty corner to two other major condo developments and an outdoor mall and retail hub currently under construction. The new retail village has recently announced it will be home to a massive, eleven-theatre Cineplex, an Osaka Supermarket, Starbucks, A&W, TD Canada Trust, CIBC, BMO, liquor store, Subway, Irish pub and more.
“It’s been a few years since anything new has come to market in this area so people are really excited about Northwest,” says Onni’s Nick Belmar. “Residents here 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 the park. 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.”
