Mosaic offers early buyers a realistic experience 0
Emerson by Mosaic has shiny kitchens that boast slim-profile polished quartz countertops, two-tone cabinetry with square-edged pulls, soft-close cabinets doors and drawers, and stainless steel appliance ensembles. (SUBMITTED)
In this fast-paced world of pre-sales, condo buyers rarely get the chance to see, touch and feel the finished product until a year or two after they’ve signed on the dotted line.
The Emerson by Mosaic in Evergreen Heights is no exception. The 63-home west Coquitlam development won’t be ready for occupancy until spring 2014.
However, its sister building next door, Georgia, is practically ready for occupancy. So to give potential Emerson buyers a true sense of what these homes are like, Mosaic is opening a deluxe sales centre in the Georgia building.
This way, viewers can see the beautiful Georgian-inspired architecture in all its glory, complete with brick facade, dramatic portico entry and oversized windows. They can also tour the bright, refined modern suites. Touches include ultra-sleek kitchens that boast quartz countertops, flat-panel cabinetry with square-edged pulls, soft-close cabinet doors and drawers, and stainless steel appliance ensembles.
Square footages range from 589 to 753 for one-bedroom units (depending on the floor plan), and start in the low $200s. There is only one floor plan for the two-bedroom units, which are approximately 740 square feet and start in the low $300s.
In terms of the neighbourhood, this ever-evolving, well-connected, inner suburb is really starting to take shape — especially now that the new Evergreen Line is under construction and just steps away from Emerson. There’s also a new mixed-use development in the works on the same block. Plus, Simon Fraser University and Lougheed Town Centre are just minutes away. Lougheed Highway is just around the corner, so if you want drive to Vancouver, you’re looking at a relatively short commute.
For more information, visit the home-style sales centre at 608 Como Lake Ave. Open daily from noon to 6 p.m., starting Feb. 2.
