One of the things that makes Trapp & Holbrook so exciting is the project’s location at 668 Columbia Street in historic downtown New Westminster.
One of the tallest buildings on Columbia Street during the Edwardian Era, the Trapp block formerly housed a warehouse and offices. Additions in 1913 offered a striking new facade with unique windows and handsome terra cotta tiles. The adjacent Holbrook building, a hotel and saloon, was constructed in the 1880s and rebuilt in brick, after the great fire of 1898. Today, the Trapp and Holbrook blocks remain as much of a landmark in the fabric of New Westminster’s historic district today as they did over 100 years ago.
And the neighbourhood continues to grow, which is especially impressive when you consider the building site is already surrounded by arts and culture, recreation, shopping and New West’s waterfront.
And now, after welcoming thousands of guests, the Trapp & Holbrook presentation centre has closed to make way for construction. But don’t fret homebuyers, it’s not too late to own one of the affordable Trapp & Holbrook homes as there is still a selection available.
Imagine what it would be like to own a home that has everything from floor-to-ceiling windows to generous balconies, all located in a emerging city at the centre of Metro Vancouver…
