Compass at Seylynn Village: a new opportunity to be part of the North Shore’s ‘gateway to good living’

North Vancouver’s evolving skyline is set to get a sparkling new addition with Compass, the second tower in Denna Homes’ Seylynn Village development.

Situated in North Vancouver’s picturesque Lynn Creek area, Seylynn Village will ultimately be home to three world-class residential towers, and feature one of the bestequipped amenity clubhouses on the North Shore.

Slated to break ground next January, the 28-storey Compass tower is a dazzling combination of glass and metal, concrete and wood. When complete, it will be home to 247 luxury condominiums, including nine townhomes. Prices at Compass will start in the low $300,000s for one-bedroom homes and the low $400,000s for two-bedroom homes.

Seylynn Village’s first tower, Beacon, is now complete and close to sold out, although a few opportunities remain, says Nick Askew, president of Pacesetter Marketing. “Initially, the majority of buyers in Beacon were from the North Shore, specifically, east of the Grand Boulevard area,” he says. “They were the early adopters because they really understood the potential of this area.”

These days, Seylynn Village is drawing interest from all over the North Shore and beyond, as well as from investors. “With prices in Lower Lonsdale now quite high, investors are looking for the next big opportunity on the North Shore,” says Askew.

In addition to the location, Askew notes investors and end users alike are drawn to the quality of construction courtesy of veteran builder ITC, which includes triple-ply window glazing for superior insulation and sound proofing, air conditioning, and three elevators in each tower. The homes feature a host of luxurious touches such as wide-plank brushed laminate flooring throughout the kitchens and bedrooms, floor-to-ceiling windows and private oversized balconies from which to enjoy the views of downtown and the North Shore mountains.

Kitchens feature sleek modern cabinetry and high-end appliances — Fisher Paykel refrigerators and Bosch dishwashers, wall ovens and gas cooktops. Bathrooms are well appointed with clean composite stone countertops, spacious soaker tubs and oversized showers.

As mentioned, at the core of Sey lynn Village is the Denna Club, an impressive 14,000-square-foot facility currently under construction, which will offer a fully equipped fitness centre, 25-metre infinity lap pool, lounge, spa, and dedicated yoga and dance room. Billed as the “gateway to good living,” Seylynn Village is easily accessible to a multitude of amenities, including unique restaurants, shops and, of course, the boundless recreational opportunities that North Shore living affords. A transitoriented community with easy access to Highway 1, the Second Narrows Bridge and Phibbs Exchange, Seylynn Village is in the heart of Lynn Creek Town Centre, one of four town centres that the District of North Vancouver has designated for high-density development.

“Over the course of the next 10 years, Lynn Creek Town Centre will be home to about 6,000 residents,” says Askew. “It really is a hidden gem — not only will it be home to a multitude of retail and commercial amenities; it will continue to provide instant access to outdoor amenities, from Seylynn and Bridgeman parks and their network of connecting trails, to biking, to soccer and baseball fields.”

Askew also notes that Highway 1 infrastructure improvement plans in the area, such as the new Keith Road Bridge and Brooksbank Avenue exit, should be further incentives for buyers to take a closer look at this burgeoning area.
