Upcoming Condos in Kitsilano

New developments in Kitsilano are quite rare, and I thought I’d go to the sites of three of them just to keep you up to date with what is happening here.

First – and newest – is the First on First development which is right on Burrard, sales begin on March 31st of this month, and after I attended an open house at the presentation centre, I did this short video:

For more info, you can go to the developer’s site and see some great impressions of the Kitsilano lifestyle.

Next we went over to 2386 Cornwall, and the Vue building, a luxury 4-suite building facing the beach.

I wrote a short posting about this building back in August, contrasting its 21st century style with Lilfred Lodge, the heritage building beside it. See it here.

On Collingwood and 4th, the 22 suite Viridian Green is now under construction.

Check out the developer’s site for more info.
