A new condo and townhome community in the heart of Port Moody offers the perfect way to create an idyllic lifestyle – George by Marcon.
George by Marcon comprises two contemporary, six-storey condo buildings comprising 179 homes, as well as an enclave of 73 modern townhouses, many of which back onto green space and the revitalized Dallas Creek. The community is in a prime location, steps from a brand new middle school and within a few blocks of the elementary and high schools.
Reggie Tanzola, real estate advisor at Rennie and Associates Realty, says, “We’re just a couple of minutes’ walk from the West Coast Express and Port Moody SkyTrain station, so that’s a huge convenience.”
The three- and four-bedroom townhomes, from just below 1,300 square feet to 1,650 square feet, are perfectly designed for functional family living. Each of the homes also has outdoor space in the form of a spacious patio, plus a balcony off the main-floor great room, as well as a two-car garage.
The modern architecture extends to the contemporary interiors, in which airy, open-concept spaces are complemented by clean-lined kitchens and bathrooms. A choice of three colour palettes allows buyers to customize their look and feel. And all homes come with full-sized Samsung appliance packages and numerous smart and eco-friendly features.
Ross & Company Interiors principal Charyle Ross explains, “All three colour schemes are timeless, but each speaks to different buyers. The warm taupe of the show suite is not too edgy, whereas the white, shaker-style scheme is a little more traditional, and the third scheme is edgier, with a darker cabinet combined with wood, and dark bathroom flooring. And what sets this project apart is the matte black hardware, and gorgeous lighting fixtures.”
Although the condos are two years from completion, most have already been snapped up. But still available are 10 spacious, penthouse-level “terrace homes” with expansive roof terraces, some with more than 600 square feet of outdoor space. These homes also have two parking spots and a private locker, as well as a gas hookup and hose faucet on the terrace.
“The terrace homes are really going to appeal to downsizers, especially those who want to continue their outdoor entertaining,” says Tanzola.
Residents of the two condo buildings also enjoy communal outdoor gardens with a BBQ area, plus a gear room outftted with kayaks and paddleboards that they can take to the water at nearby Rocky Point Park.
Buyers will have the peace of mind that comes with purchasing from an established local developer, with a track record of more than 11,000 quality homes in the region. “Marcon brings a really good reputation of delivering on time and at a very high quality,” adds Tanzola.
Of the 73 townhomes, some will be completed this summer, and others this fall and early next year. Two three-bedroom townhomes, just under 1,300 square feet, are still available for $879,900. Larger three-bedroom homes start at $959,900, and four-beds start at $1,029,900.
Of the condos, three of the 10 remaining terrace homes are around 850 square feet, with the larger penthouses going up to 1,307 square feet. Also available are two condos of more than 1,000 square feet, with two bedrooms and a den, plus a balcony and one parking spot. The condos start at $779,900, going up to $1,089,000 for the largest terrace homes.
