Unique, selection and passive design on The Drive – that’s what you get from DIMEX Group’s newest project Templeton

By Michelle Hopkins Mar 26, 2021

DIMEX Group has outdone itself again. The forward-thinking developer brings a new project, Templeton, to one of the most coveted neighbourhoods in East Vancouver, The Drive. But not just any multi-family project - Templeton offers a diverse selection of carefully curated homes, advanced environmental standards, lock off suites and design forward features. 

“Our floorplans include many different bedroom configurations to appeal to families in different stages of their lives,” says Gordana Plemic, director of sales and operations, DIMEX Group. “We have homes that provide one, two and three-floor living – providing space, privacy and flexibility.”

Templeton is a sophisticated collection of 20 European-inspired three-bedroom townhomes, a small selection of one-bedroom garden homes, as well as a four-storey wood frame condo building featuring 40 one, two and three bedrooms with an option of a lock off suite.

For those who need a mortgage helper, the lock off suites can be rented out as a studio unit with a separate entry and patio, while providing home owners the option of moving into that space as their family grows. That’s not all, all homes feature adaptable flex spaces for additional storage or a home office.   

The homes at Templeton truly represent DIMEX Group’s strong commitment to innovation, functionality, and sustainability with its Passive House construction. 

“A Passive House is like the Tesla for buildings – They run on electricity, do not use any gas and are very efficient.  The homes are also very comfortable and provide a healthy breathing environment,” says Plemic, adding each home features triple glazed tilt and turn windows and doors with insulated frames.

“A building built to Passive House standard with unprecedented thermal balance will give you an extraordinary comfortable indoor air climate,” says Sandra Rohler, architect AIBC and co-founder Passive House Canada. “Stable temperatures and no cold radiation or drafts from exterior walls or windows. Combine this with the constant fresh air supply via a heat-recovery ventilation system gives you a tremendous and healthy indoor air climate. A quiet, serene and peaceful home.” 

Buildings built to the international Passive House standard are resilient in regard to changing energy prices and changing climates. Thus they provide long term assurance of affordability.

From the details you see as soon as you enter the townhomes; like chef-inspired kitchens with Fisher & Paykel fridge, Bosch induction oven, generous storage, including integrated pull-out cabinet organizer system, Quartz countertop with matching full height backsplash, and luxury wide plank vinyl flooring to expansive patios and terraces — the homes at Templeton exude form and function to create a place you’ll love immediately, and continue to love for years to come.

Templeton has a lot of advantages going for it. Ideally situated within blocks of both SkyTrain and B-Line, getting around the city is a breeze.  It also has easy access to numerous parks including Trout Lake's Community Centre. 

For young families, Templeton is a short walk to well-regarded schools like Lord Nelson and Laura Secord Elementary and Vancouver Technical and Templeton Secondary.  St. Francis Assisi, Our Lady of Sorrows, Notre Dame and Stratford Hall are also easily assessable.

Templeton’s two-bedroom condo, start at $849,900, while the three-bedroom condos start at $1,049,900. Templeton’s Sales Centre is located at 610-1155 West Pender Street in Downtown Vancouver and is open by appointment only.
