What’s New?

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 homeownership 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.

This latest phase in the #MyBelmont vision “Opens More Doors to Home Ownership” according to Director of Development, Marcela Corzo.

From the beginning, Crossing at Belmont set a new standard for rental living in the West Shore. With its unique blend of urban-meets-suburban lifestyle alongside the Galloping Goose Trail, numerous parks, lakes and outdoor spaces, it’s no surprise it has become one of Vancouver Island’s most anticipated rental developments.

This fall, Crossing at Belmont started welcoming its first tenants to their new homes. From comments received, tenants are super thrilled with their new condo accommodations. The combination of nearby family conveniences and modern finishes is what has impressed them the most.

In our Mar/Apr 2019 issue, we showcased how Belmont’s new Rental Rewards Program could assist prospective home owners save for a new home at Belmont Residences, while renting at The Crossing. The program applies 25% of monthly rent towards the purchase of a Belmont Residences home—up to a maximum of 5% of the home’s value. If you were intrigued about how this new rent-to-own tool could help you, things just got better.

The City of Langford recently announced that it will be supporting this program with a rebate of up to $5,000 to reduce your deposit payment even further! Following an initial three-month trial period, the City will consider amending its affordable housing policy to enable similar initiatives on a wider basis across Langford.

It could have been so different! I’m sure you’ve seen it happen in other cities: a large piece of development land opens up and developers move in to build as many apartment buildings as they can squeeze onto the acreage. Belmont Residences took another path with the 24 acres that originally housed Belmont Secondary School and its grounds in central Langford. When you look at their Master Plan Community, you can see responsible minds behind the project, with designs and innovations that were intended to enhance—not diminish—the quality of life for residents and the community at large.

Belmont Residences is located in the heart of Langford. It’s location that creates a sustained sense of value in a development. Whether properties are built in infill locations or with mountain view settings, ultimately, it’s being at the city core that guarantees the long-lasting value of a home.

It’s apparent walking through the various phases of the Westhills community, that what is happening here offers prospective homeowners a very different lifestyle from traditional suburbs built in the past century.

Westhills’ location is key. It’s situated on the shoreline of Langford Lake and surrounded by both Municipal and Provincial Parks. As a result, this master planned community has forests and lakes all a short walk, hike or bike ride away for a community playground and recreational pursuits.

“The lifestyle element available here is the best of both worlds,” says Rob Muller, Sales and Marketing Manager for Westhills Land Corp. “You’re close enough to downtown Victoria yet you can live right on nature’s doorstep.”

In this special Developer’s Issue we are pleased to showcase several innovative, thoughtful developments currently underway in the West Shore.

Each offers its own unique take on what a community with an affordable, diverse mix of quality homes and outstanding lifestyle amenities can look like.

Theirs is a long-term commitment to improve the quality of life not only for its residents, but for the West Shore community at large.
