The new luxury at Richmond’s River Park Place

Richmond's Oval Village is welcoming a touch of sophisticated luxury to the neighbourhood with Intracorp's River Park Place.

Richmond’s Oval Village is welcoming a touch of sophisticated luxury to the neighbourhood with Intracorp’s River Park Place.

The new condominium and townhome development is already garnering buzz.

“These homes stand out from the crowd,” says Intracorp’s Director of Sales Barrett Sprowson. “The response so far has been really positive.”

The project will encompass three buildings and over 500 homes. Over 30 homes were sold last month.

The one-, two- and three-bedroom homes are spacious and inviting, with floorplans ranging from about 465 to over 2,000 square feet.

“These floorplans make sense to a wide range of people,” says Sprowson, adding that buyers so far have included downsizers and young couples looking to move away from renting or their starter home.

“These homes are really efficient,” Sprowson says. “There’s no wasted space.”

Some of the beautiful features you’ll find in your new home include stainless-steel appliances, solid engineered quartz countertops and a full-height marble mosaic backsplash in the kitchen. The modern kitchen cabinetry includes high-gloss solid white lacquer upper cabinets and horizontal-grain real wood veneer lower cabinets, all built in Canada.

The soaker tub in the bathroom is made for spa-like relaxation, complemented by the natural stone porcelain tile flooring, solid marble countertops and European frameless glass shower enclosure.

You’ll find laminate flooring throughout the main living areas, with low-profile soft touch broadloom carpeting in the bedrooms. When you’re in the mood for some time outdoors, you’ll love the expansive outdoor patio or balcony in your new home.

The amenities are some of the most amazing things about River Park Place. Among them you’ll find a yoga mezzanine, fully equipped fitness centre, dog-wash station, media room and training court with space to play basketball or badminton.

“These are little things that make sense,” Sprowson says. “We picked up the concept of a whole home, taken all of those things you’re looking for and put them into some form of amenity at River Park Place. You don’t expect to get that in a condo.”

For the next several week, River Park Place will be holding weekend events that celebrate all those amenities. The next one, a three-on-three basketball scrimmage, will take place on Aug. 10 at the River Park Place sales centre.

“Intracorp is fielding a team,” Sprowson laughs. “The old guys are going to get schooled!”

There will be a grilling exhibition on Aug. 17 and daylight yoga on Aug. 24.

The Oval Village neighbourhood has been rapidly growing since the end of the 2010 Winter Olympic Games, and River Park Place is perfectly situated to take advantage of everything the neighbourhood has to offer.

“Our buyers are really starting to appreciate the evolution of the area,” Sprowson says. “This is the number-one neighbourhood in Richmond.”

Buyers will have easy access to transit via the Canada Line just minutes away, as well as the Vancouver International Airport, the Richmond dyke trails and all of the shopping, dining and leisure activities in the area. T&T Supermarket will soon open its doors nearby, as well as medical, dental and banking services.

Homes at River Park Place start at $229,900 for a one-bedroom. For more information about the homes or the weekend events, visit www.intracorp.ca/riverparkplace, call 604-282-7838 or visit the sales centre at 7100 Elmbridge Way, open every day except Fridays between noon and 5 p.m.
