We are very pleased to let you know that we have already released brand new pricing for our final three pre-sale UBC Pacific Spirit homes at Pathways. These new Adera condominium homes are now undeniably valued at the leading edge of the competitive market. In fact, one Pacific Spirit UBC home sold instantly to customers that previously had decided to wait for later in the year. Our final 3 homes at Pathways at Pacific Spirit UBC condos are fully complete and ready to move into immediately. Here are the prices for the remaining homes: #213 (NE corner Bldg 2) – $719,900, #222 (SW corner Bldg 2) – $729,900 and #319 (NW corner Bldg 2) – $739,900 This home is a 3-bedroom configuration and shows extremely well with the decorations.

In addition to the idyllic Pacific Spirit location, our UBC Adera Pathways condo homes offered here are constructed of concrete and steel, are REAP certified GOLD for sustainable Pacific Spirit construction, are located in the catchment for the University Hill education system, have been awarded the international Gold Nugget award for design, and have been nominated as a finalist for awards both locally at the Georgies, and nationally at the National SAM awards. Despite the unwarranted commotion of Onni's alleged real estate liquidation, a giant marketing effort for a one day sale on March 7 to reduce an inventory of some 375 homes that were obviously considered over-valued at their previous asking prices by savvy buyers, the remaining three presale Pacific Spirit UBC Pathways homes have already been adjusted to reflect leading edge current market pricing. Also, these new condominium homes at Pathways Pacific Spirit UBC are available for occupancy without delay. Please call us to view these spacious homes that are being offered as part of our final Clear Out Sale at Pathways at extreme real estate market value. We look forward to hearing from you soon.

You might want to note that construction of the village is under way and the grocery store will be open before Pacific Spirit UBC Condos project is complete. Finally, couples and young families that look to life at UBC real estate at Wesbrook Place as a gateway to great education, from the University Hill Elementary and Secondary School systems right through to post graduate studies at UBC itself, already know that the village will contain a brand new secondary school that will ease the burden on the current schools.

People with a pension for purpose and smart choice are queuing for this pre-construction UBC real estate opportunity, idyllic in location, idyllic in lifestyle. Surrounded by the ocean and forest, in a city within a city, a destination with an inspired perspective, a world-class neighborhood and influence, fine arts and entertainment…Wow!
