Mr. Vain’s Miramar Village

Miramar Village

Miramar Village is one of those condo projects that seems stuck forever. Like White Rock’s big white rock, it’s going nowhere. Don’t be fooled by allegations of “limited opportunity” — this $721,000+ stinker has been on the market since at least 2006. The ad copy doesn’t lie; this is vintage condo hype:

At Miramar Village, you can reward yourself with a lifestyle that many long for, and few seem to find. A refined condominium lifestyle that offers the opportunity to enjoy weekends spent doing what you want to do, rather than things you have to do.

True to old-school Vancouver condo marketing, the narcissism in the copy is stronger than you’d find in the Yaletown Cactus Club on a Friday night, prompting speculation that 90s Eurodance group Culture Beat has been hired as a special consultant.

“I know what I want and I want it now. I want you cause I’m Mr. Vain.”

Now that’s a kick-ass condo theme song!

    That Mr. Vain is a great track. I wonder if they play it in the sales centre?

  2. Ms. JonesSuburban Says:

    Well, here we go again – Miramar Village is the clone of Newport Village in Port Moody.

    So much about “you can reward yourself with a lifestyle that many long for, and few seem to find”

    Just check the present to see the future of Miramar Village:

    Ms. JonesSuburban – do your homework Newport and Mirimar are not from the same developer. Bosa Properties and Bosa Developments are two entirely different companies run by two diffeerent people. Both are great examples of mixed use projects and meet a real need in their respective communities. Mirimar is expensive, no question, but for my Grandma selling her 60 year old home in Crescent Beach it’s pefect. She cashes out, buys a beautiful new single level condo with a killer view and pockets a chunk so she can go travel. Thanks Bosa Properties!

  4. Ms.JonesSuburban Says:

    White Smooth – your comments about your Grandma and developers serving real needs in their respective communities really, really made me cry.

    As for your thanks to Bosa Properties – it is always nice to be grateful to your employer.

    Actually, I work for the school board and my grandma often makes me cry too.
