Today’s Straight has this advertisement for The Regent, located at Cambie and King Edward. When big voices pound away at the declining opportunity in Vancouver to own the classic detached single-family home, complete with front and back yards and a driveway for BOTH Buicks, it seems that some are taking a different approach.
Check the demographic in this Straight ad.
The developer (Regent International), is betting on a decent location near the Cambie Village, with a broad mix of transportation options. Including a City of Vancouver bike-share docking station and free membership in onsite Modo. The building will be 6 stories, 66 units, 56,000 sq. ft. To quote the web site (theRegentVancouver.com):
The Regent has the most accessible address in the Cambie Corridor when it comes to accessing the King Edward Canada Line station for a convenient ten-minute ride to downtown Vancouver or to Richmond. Travel to UBC in under thirty minutes by bus, or in about twenty by car. As an added transit option, homeowners will have a free membership to Modo’s onsite car share program, and will have access to a docking station as part of Vancouver’s upcoming Public Bike Share System. All of this will help make life at the Regent even more convenient.
