REGISTRATIONS NOW BEING ACCEPTED! Pet-friendly 1 bed and studio lofts priced from the low-$2,000.00s!
Situated on a prime stretch of New Westminster’s historic downtown core right across from Douglas College, just steps from the famed River Market and the New Westminster Skytrain Station, the all-rental Occidental Lofts is expected to complete a major renovation in February 2023. The entire building is 100% intentionally car-free- enjoy the freedom to transit from the nearby Skytrain!
With 7 unique homes, each studio or 1 bedroom loft is distinctively designed with no two units being the same floorplan- you’ll want to view all 7 units to find the right footprint for your lifestyle! Many of the lofts are set upon two levels with stunning wooden floating staircases, soaring vaulted ceilings and tonnes and tonnes of windows that will flood you with natural light. Residents enjoy well-equipped kitchens with a modern, authentic design- prepare your locally sourced fresh foods from the nearby River Market on your 5 burner gas range and make use of the apartment-sized dishwasher! Cute washrooms with attractive vanity and durable rubber flooring, washrooms include either a bathtub or standup shower. Most of the lofts offer nooks perfect for a workstation, small living spaces perfect for just one person and efficient-sized sleeping areas- there are also wonderful insuite storage closets too!
The Occidental features a welcoming lobby with elevator plus an intercom system for visitors and deliveries. Originally built in 1899 this important and noticeable building has just undergone a serious renovation that’s been the talk of the town- the effort was led by award-winning Measured Architecture and executed by Kindred Construction. The finished product is an architecturally sophisticated aesthetic that offers character and dignity- affordable homes for people looking to live in the very heart of the city, the structure is registered as one of Canada’s Historic Places. There is a cute parklet right out front (curbside) for pet’s to “go.”
