Future Looks Bright at 999 Seymour

Wide balconies with movable sun screens are standard for this Townline project

With more than three decades of home building experience in B.C., Richmond-based Townline announces 999 Seymour, an exclusive collection of 134 smart urban homes, located at the corner of Nelson and Seymour streets in the heart of downtown Vancouver.

999 Seymour embraces the values of a modern West Coast city lifestyle. In this innovative residential building, less really is more as smart, eco-considered design results in affordable and flexible urban living. Thoughtfully integrated building features promote living with a lighter footprint without compromising practicality, comfort or style.

Chris Colbeck, vice-president of sales and marketing, says, “The virtues of this location and product mix will ultimately attract a variety of owners who want to live close to work, transportation, entertainment and shopping.”

Many of Vancouver’s best shops, restaurants, theatres, pubs and nightclubs are within walking distance. Shop for groceries at nearby Nesters and Choices markets. Stroll down Homer Street to shop at locally-owned Yaletown boutiques or savour cocktails at one of countless bars and lounges in the area. Play in the sun at nearby Emery Barnes Park, or after dark in the vibrant Granville Entertainment District. Escape to other urban outposts, thanks to excellent transportation connections via SkyTrain, bike, car or bus.

A great location, though, is just part of the 999 Seymour story. The passion, integrity, innovation, and credibility that Townline brings to its new homes are what make living here truly special.

999 Seymour is designed by award-winning Acton Ostry Architects, whose diverse portfolio includes the re-imagined Salt building, the Champlain Heights Community Centre, and the Water Street revitalization project. The environmentally-sensitive design reinforces 999 Seymour’s motto: “Indoor. Outdoor. Everything at your door.”

Outdoors, because each south-facing home features deep, wide balconies with interactive, movable sun screens made of perforated, anodized aluminum and translucent glass accent panels.

And indoors, with thoroughly modern interiors courtesy of Trepp Design Inc. Each 999 Seymour home exudes a warm, distinctive West Coast colour palette (choose from two colour schemes), with rich 4¾-inch-wide engineered hardwood floors throughout main living areas and kitchen.

With amenities such as a well-equipped gym, social lounge and meeting room, 999 Seymour offers the opportunity for a quick workout before friends come over for game night. Colbeck says, “999 Seymour’s clean, efficient urban style and its affordability will attract first-time and move-up buyers as well as investors.”
