Tsawwassen has long been known for its friendly village atmosphere. It’s also the sunniest place in Metro Vancouver, with access to great outdoor activities—everything from great golfing to biking and walking trails along the seashore. With the completion of the South Fraser Perimeter Road and the announcement of plans to replace the Massey Tunnel, the location is also quickly becoming a hotspot for investing.
“The best deal in Tsawwassen is definitely Brio and I’d argue it also has the best location,” says Doug Lucier, who, along with Wes Janzen, is in charge of sales and marketing for the new four-storey condominium building at the corner of 12 Avenue and 54A Street.
“Brio,” he emphasizes, “is right in the heart of Tsawwassen, in the centre of town, yet it’s on a quiet street so you have the best of both worlds. Thrifty Foods probably isn’t more than 100 yards away, so you can leave the car at home when you need to do your shopping.”
Lucier quickly reels off a long list of Brio’s attributes including its solid construction, quality interior finishing, engineered hardwood floors in the living and dining areas, spacious bathrooms, radiant heat floors in the ensuite, and secure underground parking.
Brio’s wide range of quality features is attracting many downsizers, locally from Tsawwassen and Delta, as well as from Richmond and Vancouver as buyers recognize the price advantage of moving farther out. Brio’s 58 condominium homes include 25 floor plans including several one-bedroom and two-bedroom options and one three-bedroom home. Square footage ranges from 693 to 1,887, with prices starting at $269,000. For a limited time you can take advantage of a special price incentive: a $5,000 credit for a one-bedroom home or $10,000 for a two-bedroom suite.
“We’re offering very few upgrades because just about everything you could want is included,” adds Lucier. “Quartz countertops, a premium stainless steel appliance package, and a tile backsplash are standard in all kitchens. Spa-like bathrooms include a deep soaker tub and large showers. All homes have at least nine-foot ceilings with select top floor units featuring 12-foot ceilings in the living and dining area. For those who enjoy outdoor living, there are some good size deck choices. The floor plans are well thought out with separated bedrooms and large laundry rooms.”
The timeless architectural style designed by Peter Dandyk Atrchitect Inc. will complement the surrounding neighbourhood with the highest quality materials, including textured and smooth goldenrod brick, Hardi siding, and metal accents. With construction anticipated to begin this spring, Brio is slated for occupancy by fall 2015.
The two-bedroom show home features a second kitchen so buyers can make an informed choice between the classic (white) or modern (grey) colour palettes. Presentation hours are daily from noon to 5 p.m. (except Fridays) at 1166 54A Street in Tsawwassen.
