Alabaster Homes brings new life to significant Vancouver cross streets.
Alabaster Homes has a particular set of criteria when choosing sites for their projects. They must be close to: reputed schools, ample green space, and quality local amenities. According to the Vancouver-based homebuilding company, that makes Marpole the best place to move.“Marpole is Vancouver’s next prestigious neighbourhood,” says Yosh Kasahara, Director of Sales and Marketing at Alabaster Homes. “Its Westside location, top-ranked schools, and proximity to Richmond, YVR, the Cambie corridor and the Canada Line make it the perfect place to live.”Alabaster Homes’ latest project, OAK + PARK, is located on the corner of Oak Street and Park Drive. The company’s third development in the area follows close on the heels of Osler Residences and Shaughnessy Residences, and the goal for OAK + PARK—the area’s largest and most centrally located development—is loftier than ever. “This is a flagship project for Alabaster Homes,” shares Kasahara. “Our vision is to raise the bar for new townhomes in the city.”
An Alabaster home is one that you count on for providing comfort and enjoyment for generations.
OAK + PARK is located within the catchments for David Lloyd George Elementary and Sir Winston Churchill Secondary; two schools ranked among the best in the country. The prominent development is also close to Oak Park and new amenities at Cambie and Marine Drive, including a T&T Grocery Store and Cineplex movie theatre.Kasahara explains that the unique combination of classically inspired details and modern elements will give OAK + PARK a truly timeless West Coast aesthetic. The design, led by the acclaimed team at Ciccozzi Architecture, features traditional white brick with striking black metal details.Occupy Design has provided these homes with a distinctly modern yet livably warm interior design. Quartz countertops, premium stainless steel appliances, and wide-plank hardwood floors give the homes a look that will impress even the most design-savvy buyers. All homes include direct access to parking from the basement level, air-conditioning, heated tile floors in the ensuites, and multiple outdoor living spaces.Anyone aware of the company’s most recent projects would agree. In fact, Osler Residences has already sold out and Shaughnessy Residences has seen overwhelming early interest. “Alabaster Homes is quickly developing a reputation as one of the top townhome builders in the industry,” says Kasahara. “An Alabaster home is one that you count on for providing comfort and enjoyment for generations.”Sales will begin in June.
