Lynn Creek is quickly becoming one of Vancouver’s hottest and most sought-after neighbourhoods, and that’s saying something.
As the youngest of North Vancouver’s official town centres, the community is rapidly undergoing an ambitious transformation into a transit-oriented community with vibrant streets, green infrastructure, and a retail core where residents can shop, eat, connect and enjoy the local area.
Lynn Creek offers its residents the best of both worlds: easy access to downtown and close proximity to the great outdoors. This mix of urban and outdoorsy allows for a distinct lifestyle that makes the area truly unique. Here’s why.
Originally an industrial area like Olympic Village, Yaletown, Gastown, and Lower Lonsdale, Lynn Creek is being re-imagined as an emphatically unique mixed-use community right next door to the great outdoors. And it’s happening now.
Guided by a vision of economic and social growth, the Town Centre will ultimately house 6,000 people, 3,000 new residences, and a revitalized commercial and light-industrial area which has already attracted innovative local businesses including restaurants, coffee roasteries, breweries, and more.
Currently under construction, the centrepiece of Lynn Creek will be a 27,000 sq. ft. community centre and daycare. Upon its completion in 2020, expect to be able to walk through parks and plazas while taking in lush landscaping and interesting architecture.
With ongoing improvements to transit, roads, bike lanes and green infrastructure, Lynn Creek is set to become a highly walkable and transit-friendly neighbourhood where residents can embrace a green approach to living.
It’s all about options. If you’re looking for a scenic walk, the future Greenway will connect residents to the river pathway system and some of the most alluring mountain trails in the world. If going by bike is more your speed, you’ll be treated to amazing water and mountain views while you search for the perfect cup of coffee. And if you commute by car, proximity to Highway 1 allows for quick access to the downtown core, Deep Cove and the North Shore Mountains. Don’t forget, you’re also that much closer to Whistler!
To top it all off, Lynn Creek’s Phibbs Exchange (the district of north Van’s largest bus terminal), will soon be the starting point for the new B-line rapid bus service travelling across North Vancouver, as well as an express bus service designed to connect commuters directly to the Skytrain.
Looking Forward To The Future
Lynn Creek offers a unique opportunity for you to live in a part of the city that’s modern and future-focused, while also maintaining a strong link to nature and the great outdoors.
Families, young couples, and first-time buyers can strike the ideal balance for their lifestyle with a home at 1515 Rupert by Areva Living. The development brings 26 elegant three and four-bedroom homes starting from $999,000, offering family-friendly living in North Vancouver’s future-ready neighbourhood.
At 1515 Rupert, Areva Living is building intelligently designed homes with future generations in mind. From the private central courtyard (perfect for your kids to play impromptu games of tag and hide-and-seek) to the tasteful public art installations and thoughtful landscaping, 1515 Rupert aims to instil you with a sense of peace, security, and belonging. These townhomes are designed to feel warm and light, and to then bring those positive emotions to your everyday life.
Look forward to coming home from work on those hot summer days to air conditioning (yes, AC in Vancouver isn’t just a myth), and breeze through the west coast winter with engineered hardwood and heated floors, as well as triple-pane windows for sound insulation and warmth.
Kitchens have been designed with extraordinary functionality, innovative smart-storage solutions and premium appliances aimed to meet the demands of day-to-day urban living.
All units offer an abundance of outdoor space: Upper units offer entertainment decks on the top floors, as well as two master bedrooms, both with ensuites. (You read that correctly.)
Living at 1515 Rupert offers space to entertain as well as to retreat, reconnect, and recharge — both inside and outside of your home.
Living Inside A Piece Of Modern Art
Built around a unique interior courtyard, 1515 Rupert’s townhomes will feature public art by New York-based artist Adam Frelin, combining both manmade and natural elements in a reflection of North Vancouver’s Lynn Creek.
The artwork, titled “Binoculara,” will feature two demarcated areas on the facade of the townhomes that will metaphorically (and visually; see the rendering above) function as a set of binoculars, magnifying the distant landscape of coniferous trees behind it.
Whether you’re living at 1515 Rupert, or simply passing by, you’ll get to take in this surprising and rewarding viewing experience which brings the mysterious, conifer-covered slopes of the distant mountains to the heart of Lynn Creek.
