Marpole on the Rise
The new Shaughnessy Residences by Alabaster Homes offer award-winning townhome designs and ideal neighbourhood amenities in the heart of up-and-coming Marpole
As hyperinflation continues to rule local real estate chatter, industry experts and homeowners have begun speculating on the next big neighbourhood. Will East Vancouver become a fully gentrified extension of Kitsilano? Will Chinatown acquire the suave Gastown vibe? Local developer Alabaster Homes is betting on Marpole, the South Vancouver neighbourhood bordered by Oakridge to the north and Richmond to the south.
“Marpole is Vancouver’s next prestigious neighbourhood,” claims Yosh Kasahara, Director of Sales and Marketing at Alabaster Homes. The developer’s latest project, Shaughnessy Residences, is a 15-townhome community located at Shaughnessy Street, just south of West 64th Avenue.
A family-friendly focus inspired Alabaster to build within the catchment area for Sir Wilfred Laurier Elementary and Sir Winston Churchill Secondary, recognizing that access to an IB school was a big draw for their Osler Residences project. “The program at Churchill Secondary is among the best in the country,” shares Kasahara.
Our vision was to create a jewel in Marpole.
Designed by award-winning Formwerks Architectural, with warm and modern interiors by Occupy Design, Shaughnessy Residences promise the polish of a custom single-family home. A 20th Century Westside aesthetic make the 1,700 to 1,900 square foot 3-bedroom townhomes timeless, while quartz countertops, premium stainless steel appliances and wide-plank hardwood floors complete the sophistication inside. “Imagine the fresh and airy colour palette of a Cape Cod B&B paired with striking professional-grade Italian kitchen appliances,” prompts Kasahara. “These homes will look like nothing else in the market today.”
The luxury residences are located within walking distance of the Marpole Town Centre, Oakridge-Marpole Community Centre and Oak Park which features grass play fields, tennis courts, a baseball diamond and walking trails, and with new amenities like a T&T Grocery Store and a Cineplex movie theatre popping up at Cambie and Marine Drive, Alabaster Homes are clearly not alone in their vision for Marpole’s future.
“An Alabaster Home is one that you can count on for generations,” says Kasahara. Starting at approximately $1.3 million, Shaughnessy Residences just might be the answer Vancouver’s market has been waiting for.
