The old adage states that timing is everything. This is certainly true with Trapp + Holbrook, Salient’s new high-rise development in downtown New Westminster.
As key landmarks in one of B.C.’s most historic cities, the Edwardian Trapp and Holbrook buildings are once again evolving. And so is the city.
The media have had plenty of things to say about Trapp + Holbrook, but here are five things you may not know about the high-rise:
1. The neighbourhood is a “walker’s paradise”.
The Trapp + Holbrook neighbourhood has a walkscore of 90, a score that places it in the “Walker’s Paradise” category. Parks, schools, transit and entertainment are literally just steps away.
Walkability plays an integral role in a sustainable neighbourhood. You don’t need your car for food, entertainment or work — everything you need is close by.
