Luxury Residences in the Heart of Lonsdale

Kimpton customizes for quality living

Inspired by the North Shore’s rare combination of natural elements and urban amenities, the Kimpton is a concrete low-rise building blending harmoniously with the neighbouring properties.  Brought to life by award-winning architect Richard Hulbert, the Kimpton is an architectural masterpiece combining large outdoor living spaces with open floor plans that will cater to a discerning lifestyle.

Nick Askew of Pacesetter Marketing says it was designed to fulfil the discerning homeowners’ dreams. “This is not a generic highrise apartment building with cookie-cutter floor plates planned for a variety of buyer profiles,” he says. “Our homes are customized. The Kimpton is the future of quality adult living.”

Located in the heart of Central Lonsdale on 13th St. and Chesterfield, the Kimpton offers a boutique collection of stylish and luxurious homes with unparalleled finishes.  This LEED-certified building will welcome its first owners next spring.

Architect Richard Hulbert (Coal Harbour, Pacific Place) says, “Great architecture has ‘personality.’ Great residences have a beautiful face that reflects that personality. The Kimpton combines the best of North Shore casual living with the sophistication of a Vancouver urban resort — where livability, comfort, and convenience are paramount.” With more than 20 different floor plans for just 50 homes, including many adaptable for adult living, The Kimpton can have a home customized uniquely for each individual buyer.

The Kimpton is designed so each residence has its own personality, and combines the latest in international design with all the conveniences that modern living demands. The heart of The Kimpton is in the clever and meticulous planning of unique floor plans that capitalize on the magnificent skyline, mountain and sunset views from the oversized windows — creating the perfect setting for entertaining and living well.

Each Kimpton home offers only the very best in high quality, high end, luxurious features and finishings. Stainless steel Fisher & Paykel refrigerator, contemporary gas stovetop, double tall dishwasher, built-in stainless steel microwave oven, Italian designed Latorre bathroom fixtures, marble countertops and bedroom fireplaces come standard in many homes. The bathroom features include large custom-made shower bases with designer mosaic-tiled floors.

“With a median age of 43 and high proportions of active adults and seniors in this area, The Kimpton recognized the importance of having a design that was unique for baby boomers looking to downsize from their homes to condominium living in the central Lonsdale location with its many amenities,” Askew says. “The Kimpton will be sheltered from the noise of Lonsdale, while still in close walking distance to its conveniences.”

The Kimpton is also perfectly in sync with the buying habits of downsizing North Shore residents, he adds. “Across most areas of North Vancouver, there is a changing preference toward larger two-bedroom condos. Between 50 per cent and 60 per cent of re-sales across the different regions are attributed to two-bedroom homes and we feel this trend will continue. “Boutique-style buildings with larger condominium offerings are the future of urban living as desired by aging demographics, solidifying these homes as a great investment.

The kitchen features in The Kimpton are second to none and provide an inspiring work space, while bathrooms are near masterpieces.
