Oak + Park: A Timeless Westside Address

September 2, 2016

There’s a real transformation going on in Marpole. This enclave is set to become yet another desirable neighbourhood in the red-hot Vancouver Westside market. This is where Alabaster Homes is developing its newest townhome project – Oak + Park.

“We have received overwhelming interest in this project,” says Yosh Kasahara, director of sales and marketing at Alabaster Homes. “Its Westside location, top-ranked schools, and proximity to Richmond and YVR (Vancouver International Airport) make it the perfect place to invest and live. And starting at $1.2 million, it is the most affordable new three-bed townhome on the Westside.”

The collection of 40 open-concept homes, ranging from 1,300 to 1,600 square feet, feature air-conditioning, quartz countertops, premium stainless-steel appliances, wide-plank hardwood floors, as well as heated ensuite flooring.

The stylish exteriors feature extensive use of traditional white brickwork and distinctive black metal detailing, making these homes stand out. Designed by the multiple-award-winning firm of Ciccozzi Architecture, Oak + Park is a fusion of classic design and contemporary West Coast elements.

“This is a flagship project for Alabaster Homes. Our vision for Oak + Park is to deliver a project that raises the bar for new townhomes in the city,” he adds.

The three-bedroom-plus-den-and-flex residences are located within the catchment of some of the city’s most prestigious schools, including David Lloyd George Elementary and Sir Winston Churchill Secondary – an International Baccalaureate (IB) school. 

“The IB school was a big draw for buyers at our last two projects,” adds Kasahara. “These parents want to give their children the best opportunities, and the program at Churchill Secondary is among the best in the country.”

Bounded by Oakridge to the north and Richmond to the south, Oak + Park is well situated, close to Marpole Town Centre, which is known for its eclectic blend of shops and amenities. It is minutes to the Canada Line and transit, and the new facilities at Cambie and Marine Drive, which includes a T&T Grocery Store, Cineplex movie theatres, and more. 

For sports enthusiasts, Oak + Park is a short distance from the Oakridge-Marpole Community Centre located at West 59th Ave and Oak Street. The centre is adjacent to Oak Park, which offers many walking trails throughout the park, picnic areas, and a kids spray park. In addition, there is a playground, tennis and basketball courts, outdoor roller hockey, soccer and softball.

Alabaster Homes brings to the table more than 25 years of experience building quality homes throughout Metro Vancouver. In Marpole, the developer recently completed the sold-out Osler Residences and launched Shaughnessy Residences – both boutique-style townhome projects.

“We believe in bringing thoughtful design, quality construction, and outstanding customer service to our buyers,” says Kasahara.  “An Alabaster Home is one that you can count on providing comfort and enjoyment for generations.”

The sales centre, located at suite 301–1788 W Broadway, is open by appointment only. Prices start from $1,237,800. A Grand Opening is slaged for Saturday, September 24. Completion is slated for 2018.
