Port Moody, a former “lumber and mill town” has morphed into an affordable, hip and active community, all while embracing its rich heritage. It simply radiates small-town friendliness with its perfect combination of urban, trendy, and relaxed — with heaps of natural beauty for you to discover.
Marcon embraces the history and urban amenities this town offers – so much so, projects such as George and Will sold out quickly. Now, the locally-owned and family-run company introduces its newest project, hue.
Conceived by award-winning Shift Architecture, hue will feature two mixed-use, six-storey buildings located in a tree-lined residential neighbourhood at the gateway to Port Moody. A leader in innovation, Marcon’s hue offers 199 market residences, one, two and three-bedroom, some with rooftop decks.
Functionality is often top of mind with young buyers. Thankfully, a user-centric and forward-thinking design is a focus of Marcon’s – the company is constantly striving to improve the livability of their homes. hue’s junior one-bedroom homes will feature custom designed millwork solution to maximize space and conceal storage for a seamless modern aesthetic.
“More than half of our homes will be junior one-bedrooms,” says Chris Harburn, Vice President, Sales at Marcon. “We are offering innovative junior homes with an entire wall of storage and side-by-side laundry. Within these homes, buyers can customize their spaces, with options to choose between a work desk or additional storage; and a dining table or TV console or finished open space within their millwork solution with no additional cost.”
hue caters to active, social lifestyles, offering rooftop amenities in both buildings, as well as a fully equipped gym and children’s playroom, dog wash, and a workshop with bike repair station and community tools. The rooftop decks will be the perfect entertaining hub with BBQ zones, comfortable outdoor dining and entertainment areas, as well as communal urban garden plots.
“There will also be a shared central courtyard with children’s play area and slide, open green space and beautiful, lush landscaping,” says Harburn. “At Marcon, we approach a new building first off by thinking about what people really want and what they will use.”
In another first, Marcon has created Outpost, a limited-time concept that is part community centre, part craft brewery, part coffee shop, part retail boutique, and part home gallery. Anchored by Vancouver’s Timbertrain Coffee Roasters and North Vancouver’s North Point Brewing, Outpost features other small businesses like Port Moody’s own Elderberry Floral and Olive the Best. This is where you’ll find the soon-opening hue Sales Gallery as well.
"With our Outpost concept, we want to re-establish true community building by engaging with communities more authentically and in a more dynamic environment, enriching the lives of residents with new experiences and opportunities,” says Nic Paolella, VP Development at Marcon. “We decided to launch this pilot project in Port Moody because of our deep roots in the area. Its great natural beauty, thriving small-businesses and entrepreneurial culture already make Port Moody a great place to live.”
hue is under a five-minute drive away from Port Moody Secondary School, Barnett Highway, Moody Centre Sky Train, with 40-minutes via SkyTrain to Downtown Vancouver.
hue puts you front and centre of some of Port Moody’s best hiking trails. Whether you're getting ready to hike, bike, trail run, or explore other outdoor activities, there are more than 20 scenic trails, like Belcarra Regional Park, Indian Arm Provincial Park and Inlet Park, to name on a few.
With nearly four decades of excellence, Marcon is an award-winning company founded on integrity and attention to detail. They have earned a reputation for building enduring homes for the way we live today, and in the future.
