Introducing Trapp + Holbrook. It’s time!

Trapp + Holbrook in New Westminster by The Salient Group

Modern living meets historic charm for our latest project Trapp + Holbrook!

Located in the heart of downtown New Westminster, Western Canada’s first city, the area is evolving into a modern waterfront community while still keeping its much loved historical appeal.

We feel that building in New Westminster makes a lot of sense. As we mentioned in a recent BuzzBuzzHome blog post, we see a lot of parallels between Gastown and New Westminster’s downtown core. Both areas are seeing growth, increased density, and the opening of hip new businesses and amenities.

Just like Gastown a few years ago, New Westminster is arguably one of the most overlooked areas in the lower mainland. It’s only natural for Salient Group to start building homes in this evolving city.

The historic Trapp Block was built in 1899.  Formerly home to Army and Navy, the site has sat empty since 1977. Facing Columbia Street and backing onto Front Street, Trapp Block is part of the historical Golden Mile, once a prosperous neighbourhood in New Westminster and once again, its charm is drawing us back!

What you can expect from Trapp + Holbrook is a marriage of the old and the new: 196 homes ranging from 500 to 1261 square feet, 20 storeys in height with panoramic views of the Fraser River. You will also find excellent value with homes starting at $219,900 and 100 homes priced under $299,000.

Trapp + Holbrook reinforces our commitment to the restoration of vibrant, walkable communities where residents will be steps from Skytrain access. We feel that its classic historic style combined with modern amenities will continue to help launch New Westminster’s cultural revival.

We are excited about this project, and we can’t wait to tell you more about it! Please follow the Salient Group on Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn for the latest updates. Previews begin on April 28th.
