Pssst. Want to be first to know a secret? Something unique is coming to Richmond and its name is Spires Gate.
Tucked into a prime corner of a tree-lined ring road and within walking distance to Richmond Centre, Spires Gate is poised to introduce the Spires neighbourhood to the thoughtfully designed beauty you’ve come to expect from Alabaster Homes, a recent finalist in both the Georgie and Ovation Awards.
“Even people who have grown up in Richmond and know the city well are often surprised when they discover this enclave,” says Yosh Kasahara, Alabaster’s executive vice-president. “As you head east from No. 3 Road and cross Cooney Street, the whole ambiance changes. It feels quieter, more tranquil. And yet you can still walk to all the urban amenities that are making Richmond city centre one of the hottest hot spots in Metro Vancouver.”
Kasahara rapidly lists just a few of the local amenities that are resonating with families and downsizers alike: Richmond Centre Shopping Mall, the newly revitalized Minoru Park with aquatics centre, Kwantlen University, Lansdowne and Aberdeen malls, plus all the restaurants on Alexandra Road (aka Richmond’s Food Street) and a host of specialty eateries sure to keep your taste buds tingling for months.
Stylish By Design
“We’ve taken everything people told us they love about our previous communities and continued to improve on it,” says Kasahara. Here’s just a hint: Classic Tudor with brick accents, steeply gabled rooflines, and meticulously proportioned windows with traditional mullions. Naturally, there will be open-concept kitchens for kicking your culinary creativity into high gear as well as spacious bedrooms and a private, rooftop deck off the third floor master suite.
And since enjoying the great outdoors is part of our West Coast lifestyle, Spires Gate is giving a new twist to the community’s landscaping. Inspired by the lush elegance of a formal English garden, Spires Gate’s central courtyard will feature raised shrubbery, park benches for socializing, and arched trellises covered with climbing ivy — like having your own secluded oasis right outside your front door.
“It’s rare to find brand-new townhomes in this part of Richmond,” says Kasahara. “And since Spires Gate will be the first townhomes in this neighbourhood, it’s going to define the entire area, which makes this an amazing investment opportunity. There is a huge pent-up demand, so by registering now, you’ll get access to early information. Because, after all, Spires Gate won’t stay a secret for long.”
