Canada’s largest agrihood recently witnessed homebuyers camp out for chance to buy at Southlands Tsawwassen
TSAWWASSEN, British Columbia–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The ongoing challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic and big-city housing affordability have led to a record-breaking number of people leaving Canada’s biggest cities. This is no more evident than by the incredible sales success witnessed by Century Group, as dozens of hopeful homebuyers camped out overnight during a recent weekend at Southlands in Tsawwassen for the chance to secure a home in the latest phase of the agrihood.
A total of 40 groups of prospective homebuyers spent the night outside for the opportunity to secure their preferred new condo unit at District Flats, the latest phase at the multiphase community in South Delta. Unlike any community in Canada, Southlands is a strategically planned and pedestrian oriented agricultural community.
District Flats, designed by Hotson Architecture, will offer residents a safe, close knit community filled with urban amenities, making it the perfect place to escape hectic city life while still being close to the action. Southlands provides residents with the unique opportunity to enjoy locally grown food, support farmers, protect the local food supply, and connect with agriculture along with fresh air, plenty of green space, and access to Centennial Beach and Boundary Bay Regional Park.
District Flats is the community’s first condo offering and is also Southland’s most urban offering to date. The condos feature a refined industrial aesthetic and modern, contemporary architecture, unlike any other design in the area and are located in the heart of Market Square with restaurants such as the planned Four Winds Brewing Co. location and existing Prado Cafe nearby, making it easy for residents to transition their city lifestyle to Southlands.
The 34 homes sold out the next day, and those who were not successful in purchasing a home were placed on a waitlist.
“The excitement we saw this weekend shows the real estate market is still strong and people recognize that our offerings are more unique to anything else presented here in Metro Vancouver,” says Sean Hodgins, President of Century Group. “District Flats has allowed us to expand our reach to younger professionals, as well as downsizers who have had enough of big city life and are eager to embrace a small town lifestyle.”
Southlands will be releasing their next phase of housing in Spring 2022.
