Sitting at the edge of the Victoria Diversion and Commercial St is a new condo building developed by Cressey called “Mercer”. The building will have 48 units in an interesting V design, creating an interior courtyard away from the street noise with amenities like a Bocce Ball court, common BBQ and lush gardens. Cressey is a great Vancouver Developer with smart designs (their “Cressey Kitchen” is famous – thanks to the great storage solutions and counter space).
Give us a call if you’re interested in the units in Mercer – buying a home directly from the Developer is slightly different than a normal real estate transaction, so not only do you want to have representation different from the Developer, but we’ll make sure you know exactly what you’re buying.
The building has covered outdoor hallways leading to the units, which face the interior “residents only” courtyard. All units come with a balcony. Some units face Victoria, which is a busy street and has the Skytrain overhead – with the windows closed you don’t get the street noise, but it will be evident if you have your windows open.
