New West Regatta – Dream Big
An excellent and informative article written by Susan B. for the New Home Buyers Special Advertisement Section in 2008. Okay, I confess I’m not exactly what you’d call a wallflower. My friends have other words for my temperament, but I prefer “outgoing”. So when I overhear the guy standing behind me in the Post Office lineup talking about “that really cool real estate development in Queensborough, youknow, Port something,” I can’t help myself. “you mean Port Royal?” I ask. “The one right on the river” And the conversation about the Port Royal Regatta condo pre-sales in New Westminster’s developing Queensborough real estate district goes on. With an exceptional array of housing types for the New West real estate market, the Port Royal development consists of single family homes, townhouses, apartment condos and now, the latest release called Regatta at Port Royal along the waterfront.

The Port Royal Regatta waterfront condominiums in New West property market are now being offered for sale!Port Royal is Getting Better and Better
Every visit to this 50 acre master planned New Westminster community brings new discoveries – more landscaping, new pre-sales homes springing up, and an increasing sense of being a true neighbourhood at Port Royal New West. So I’m delighted when David Wan, Aragon’s real estate director of marketing, tells me there are more changes about to happen. “We are almost ready to open our brand new 2,200 square foot sales centre, and its going to be absolutely stunning,” he says. “It will be right on the water between Paddler’s Landing and Regatta at Port Royal, so people can actually see the views homeowners will enjoy from these two low rise apartment buildings. There’ll be dozens of skylights, interactive digital screens, and plenty of space to showcase all our different phases [at New Westminster Port Royal community]” And this is an amenity that goes beyond the pre-sales New West real estate process. David tells me about plans to use the building in the future for community functions and as a gathering place for New West Port Royal residents.

Live Green at the Regatta at Port Royal New West
Envrionmental stewardship is far more than a catch phrase at Port Royal in the New West real estate market. “home buyers don’t wan to hear platitudes,” David says, “They are far more savvy than that, they want quantifiable numbers.” And he’s got lots of them for the Regatta New West condo pre-construction real estate offering at the Port Royal community. “Our single family homes have a PowerSmart rating of 80 from BC Hydro,” he says. “When you compare that to a typical home rated at68, it means a 30 per cent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions and a 30 per cent reduction in energy consumption. And did you know that if one in every BC homes used the EnergyStar appliances that are standard in every home here at Port Royal Regatta, Paddler’s Landing New Westminster real estate, it would be the equivalent of planting 1.7 million acres of new trees?” More good news, because of these outstanding energy ratings, David tells me homebuyers quality for a 10 per cent refund on their CMHC mortgage insurance premium on any condo apartment pre-sales at the Port royal community in New West.
