Looking for a room with a view in New Westminster? Then, you may want to scope out Northbank. Situated on historic Columbia Street, Northbank by Ballenas is set to capture the urban charm of New Westminster by combining long protected river views with smart design.
We’re big fans of convenient locations. Steps from both bus and Sky Train, Northbank is also less than five minutes from Highway 1 and the Alex Fraser Bridge.
So, Downtown Vancouver is accessible, making it easy to catch dinner and a show and still make it home before bedtime.
But, not all of us are interested in making quick trips to the city which is why Northbank‘s parkside location is an alluring bonus. The gorgeous Albert Crescent park is right at the development’s doorstep and the soon to open Waterfront Pier Park is directly South. Then, of course, there’s the river. Oh, the river! Northbank promises to offer stunning views of the Fraser River from every home.
As we’ve come to expect from Ballenas, a hands on builder that has been in New West for over 10 years, this project is about more than a great view. The efficient floor plans will waste no space. Queen sized beds will fit in every bedroom. Not only that, but the kitchens will include full sized appliances, including a fridge that can store more than just left-overs.
With only six residences per floor and 109 total homes serviced by 2 elevators, we doubt you’ll have to wait in the four-storey entry lobby. But if you do get held up, you’ll be able to check out the party room, lounge or podium garden. It’s this balance between boutique feel and livable home spaces that’s getting us excited about this project.
Sounds to us like Northbank is going to be an ideal gateway for New West’s historic Columbia Street!
