Nothing gets our bee hearts buzzing like a little trailblazing. Needless to say, we’re excited to tell you about Quattro 3 by Tien Sher which has built the first six-storey wood frame building in Metro Vancouver.
Prior to 2009, wood-frame buildings were capped off at four storeys. However, the province changed the building code as part of the B.C. Wood First Act. Tien Sher has taken advantage of the change.
President and CEO of Tien Sher Charan Sethi argues that one of the major advantages of wood-frame buildings is the affordability it offers residents. “Today’s market is all about affordability. We need to produce a product that people want and they don’t want anything expensive, but they want nice homes,” Sethi notes in an article in the Vancouver Sun.
Concrete buildings in Surrey sell for approximately $425 to $450 per square foot; whereas, wood-frame buildings sell for roughly $330 to $370 per square foot.
But, the wood-frame and affordable price aren’t the only features Quattro 3 offers. The development is part of Surrey’s largest residential and commercial development. Within walking distance of Gateway station, residents can get to downtown Vancouver in 35 minutes, Burnaby at Metrotown in 19 minutes, and New Westminster in 8 minutes.
Quattro 3 is also conveniently located close to Central City Mall and Guilford Town Centre, SFU Surrey campus, the new City Hall Civic Centre.
