A number of home purchasers, along with representatives from the development and design teams, participated in the ceremonial planting of a Douglas Fir sapling, a traditional symbol of good luck and resiliency that will be nurtured during construction. And then once the 27-storey tower is complete, it will join a thicket of trees planned for the top of The Independent.

The Independent commenced sales of its 258 homes this past February, hitting the 85 per cent sold mark within the first month and is currently over 95 per cent sold. The project marketing company reports that 90 per cent of purchasers are from Metro Vancouver and over 60 per cent live within five to ten blocks of the construction site.
Inspired by the eclectic mixture of Mount Pleasant neighbourhood buildings, The Independent showcases five vibrant architectural expressions, with exterior facades featuring multiple colours, patterns, and material uses. Designed with urban livability and practicality in mind, the homes include state-of-the-art interior features and shared amenities designed to encourage interaction among the residents, including a unique 20,000-square-foot backyard amenity space.
Construction completion is targeted for fall 2017. If you’d like a shot at owning one of the final remaining homes, call 604 879 8850 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to book a private appointment with a sales agent.
