In Vancouver’s Dunbar and Mackenzie Heights neighbourhoods, old melds with the new at a series of new townhouse projects now under construction on West King Edward Avenue.
The Boulevards — one of the latest projects by Vandwell Developments — sees the character retention of two existing single-family residences, with the addition of new coach and laneway homes, to create Boulevard Mackenzie Heights and Boulevard Dunbar.
These boutique developments are expected to wrap up construction this spring to deliver a total of eight two- and three-bedroom townhomes between the two neighbouring locations.
Renderings of the restored Boulevard homes depict white shingles and gable roofs with curved windows below landscaped gardens. Ranging from 966 to 1,470 square feet, each residence will provide a private entryway and a combination of private balconies and patios in most floorplans. Both the Boulevard Mackenzie Heights and Dunbar homes offer oak engineered hardwood flooring, paired with soft-close cabinetry and designer lighting choices like a black and aged brass fixtures in the dining rooms.
The three-bedroom, three-bathroom Heritage suites at Mackenzie Heights and Dunbar provide kitchen countertop bars with waterfall edges, in addition to convenient air conditioning and matte black knobs and pulls. The largest Heritage unit in the Mackenzie Heights collection makes room for a roof deck on the upper floor with designated planter boxes.
Custom cabinetry is available in the entryway and each bedroom of the Dunbar Garden Collection suite, while the Mackenzie Heights’ Modern Laneway home showcases access to an outdoor balcony through double doors in the dining area.
The latest information from BuzzBuzzHome shows that three townhomes remain available for sale at Boulevard Mackenzie Heights — 3016, 3018 and 3020 West King Edward Avenue. All units at Boulevard Dunbar are still available for purchase.
Both developments will be a few minutes from local schools, retail amenities along Dunbar Street, and a number of city greenspaces including Pacific Spirit Regional Park. Traveling along Granville or Oak streets will also easily transport future residents to downtown Vancouver, Richmond and Vancouver International Airport.
