From SHAPE Properties:
In The City of Lougheed, each unique neighbourhood will offer unmistakable character and a purposeful mix of amenities, conveniences and public spaces. These neighbourhoods will be the backdrop for pedestrian-friendly high streets, landscaped boulevards spilling out into public plazas, active retail storefronts and lively events all year long.
As The City of Lougheed evolves, the investment value of its homes is expected to increase. This could gives early purchasers into The City of Lougheed the opportunity to build equity over the long term as the vision of a world-class urban centre comes to life.
With an expected +10,000 new residents and thousands of visitors, workers and commuters passing through daily, The City of Lougheed will be infused with an unmistakable urban energy year-round. Two on-site SkyTrain lines and a major bus loop meet to create one of the region’s busiest transit exchanges. Metro Vancouver’s major roadways are within minutes, offering access to the region. And pedestrian and biking routes will link the site with the surrounding community. With the population surging and SkyTrain’s importance rapidly rising, The City of Lougheed is a significant, central and connected access point for all of Metro Vancouver.
By design, transit is expected to be the most convenient way to access the site, as well as the most enjoyable. On the ground level, cyclists and bus passengers can grab coffee or other travel essentials at the on-site shops before boarding the frequently departing buses. Upstairs, an iconic roof will provide all-weather comfort as passengers take the Millennium or Evergreen lines to downtown Vancouver, or to the bus links one stop east to Simon Fraser University and destinations across the entire region.
