The development of master-planned communities continues at a steady pace on the West Shore. Yet, it’s worth noting that behind the growth of #MyBelmont are holistic design principles that are redefining city neighbourhoods and what it takes to ensure its residents live a balanced, happy lifestyle within it.
Set to launch this spring, Belmont Residences East is the third and newest phase contributing to the #MyBelmont vision: a new kind of town centre set in outstanding natural surroundings.
Belmont Residences East is an exciting evolution of earlier Belmont Residence West homes with new design elements, including:
- Nordic-inspired interiors showcasing clean lines with light muted colours complemented by warm wood tones and textures creating contrast with the trendy black stainless steel appliances creating a harmonious, balanced effect.
- Technologically enhanced materials. Premium materials that are more durable and resilient.
- New layouts, like the one-bedroom + flex unit, brings home ownership within the realm of possibility for more people.
- 40% of the homes are under $399,900.
- Unit sizes range from 648 to 1,191 sq. ft.
Opens More Doors to Home Ownership
Living in the city is expensive. It’s fortunate then, that this new 85-unit phase is generating more new home opportunities to make homeownership more attentinable for West Shore’s growing population.
“[Belmont Residences East] has a variety of new floor plans that maximize the use of the space and allow us to price the units very competitively,” says Marcela Corzo, Director of Development for #MyBelmont.
“We still expect to attract a good combination of established downsizers. But the higher number of smaller units with spacious layouts should attract a higher number of younger people than our last phase!”
#MyBelmont recognizes that their neighbourhood should be more than just a collection of homes. It’s designed as a community that feels like home and creates a solid sense of belonging for its residents.
Strongly rooted in the heart of Langford, it sets a new standard for what it can be like to live well and thrive in the West Shore. It’s an urban lifestyle with conveniences that go far beyond everyday needs. Let’s take a look at what that looks like in more detail:
1. Everyday Conveniences
A neighbourhood that can satisfy convenient, everyday needs for its residents enables a healthy, vibrant community. Adjacent to Belmont Market’s diverse retail, fitness and food outlets, Belmont Residences East’s location makes shopping a breeze. Everything you need is right outside your door.
2. Healthy pursuits close at hand
Green landscaped spaces and natural habitats abound in and around the entire MyBelmont neighbourhood: The Galloping Goose Trail, the foothills of Mount Finlayson, three lakes, Goldstream Provincial Park as well as portions of three other regional parks.
It’s a walkable community with easy access to public transportation, schools, health care and community centres. Belmont has also introduced a bicycle share program as a transportation option for all its residents.
3. Life Beyond the Home You Own
Apartment living can be very isolating for some residents. Belmont Residences East owners won’t have that problem! They have many opportunities to engage in social and communal activities at their Belmont Club.
The idea for the club was born from a desire to foster social interaction, a catalyst for neighbourhood relationships.
This is not an average amenity! The club features an impressive 4,000 square foot community room, arts and crafts room, music studio, kids’ room, and a multi-purpose area.
The cluster of activities binds people together with aligned interests, creating extraordinary spaces to entertain, create, work and play!
4. Award-winning Design!
Last, but not least, #MyBelmont is winning numerous awards for its holistic approach to urban planning from residents who live in the community.
“We are very thankful for how the community has embraced #MyBelmont,” says Corzo. “Last year, we won two community based awards voted by Greater Victoria and West Shore residents. We were also nominated for a Victoria Real Estate Board Award and shortlisted for a Georgie Award in the lower mainland. That result will be announced in March 2020!”
Of all the places I have lived and worked for Ledcor internationally over the past 23 years, it’s the West Shore I fell in love with while building out the #My Belmont master plan community here in Langford. Living here since 2017 has not only had a major impact on my career, it’s also changed my family life in phenomenal ways.
This is by far the best place for our kids to experience the ocean, lakes, extraordinary natural environments and great urban amenities. We’re proud to be a West Shore family now and to be raising our two daughters in such a vibrant, friendly community.”
