Starting with the farthest North and soonest to be completed is The Point at Kits at Arbutus & Cornwall. This is a sleek building with an apparently minimalist interior design… but most importantly, you’ll get a Kits Point parking pass with your purchase. Follow along Cornwall to Balsam and you’ll find The Vue At Kits. This project is by far the most expensive investment of the three with only four suites in the building, each on their own floor. You won’t be seeing any UBC students renting here.
I finish our tour at The Vine up on West Broadway between Vine and Yew – you’ve most likely read about this project as it will rise from where the old ICBC Claim Center stood. You’ll be reading more about this development in months to come – London Drugs has announced that their new flagship store will be the anchor tenant and a grocery chain store isn’t far behind. I’ll continue to be a renter until some smart Westside real estate agent offers me $25K for this domain name. Let the bidding begin.
