It would be an interesting project to look back at Vancouver condo marketing and find out when things really started to slide into the extreme.
Specifically, I would like to know at what point did a 777 square-foot apartment in White Rock become a dream? Sure, White Rock has a nice big pier and the beach is home to a big white rock. But a dream? I don’t know when the precedent was set for this claim, but we’ve now got another case before the courts. Waterford Place in White Rock is the culprit.
The charges against this development include “granite and stainless steel kitchens, spa like bathrooms, multi layered European-style hardwood floors.” Evidence suggests the developer is targeting “discerning buyers” who “appreciate luxurious living in a truly elegant setting.”
That’s all fine and dandy but I fail to see how this dreamland is really all that different than everything else on the market. And what the hell is a “spa like” bathroom?
If you’re brave enough to visit their website, you’ll find it littered with misplaced apostrophes and clumsy copy. It also looks like the site hasn’t been updated in a year or more, judging from the claim that completion is expected by summer 2006.
Come live the dream? Sounds like this project is stuck in a coma.
