The new False Creek real estate development ‘Meccanica’ by Cressey Developments just launched their grand opening, and already they are getting press.
The Vancouver Sun recently profiled the Southeast False Creek real estate development:
Meccanica’s tower and its seven-storey neighbour will be connected by an elevated glass walkway allowing tower residents to walk to the lower building to get to common space. Underneath Cressey will build a pedestrian walkway and water feature for the public. “Most people who buy a home here have walked through athletes’ village and they know of the wide open spaces and the walkability,” says Catherine Thaker, sales manager at Mac Marketing, sales organizer for Meccanica.
The development will be within walking distance of the Main Street-Science World SkyTrain stop, and close to Chinatown and downtown to the north, and Mount Pleasant to the south.
To say the area is popular among builders might be an understatement; two large condominium buildings, the Lido and Central, will stand between Meccanica and the SkyTrain station at Terminal and Main.
It’s all a sign that the city’s long-term plans for South East False Creek are bearing fruit, says Jason Turcotte, Cressey’s senior development manager. “There’s a reason many of our peers are interested in the False Creek community. We come to the same conclusion, that this is a great place to live.”
Considering the area’s industrial roots, it may seem appropriate for developers to pay some homage to the history of the ground on which they’re building. Since 1959, Intermeccanica has been building replica vintage Porsches in that block. “We got to know the people at Intermeccanica really well,” says Hani Lammam, Cressey’s vice-president of development and acquisitions.
The nod to Intermeccanica is apparent the moment visitors walk into the presentation centre, where they are greeted by a vintage Porsche.
