The Cambie Collection: Exploring the legacy of large format, concrete homes in a micro-driven market

June 1, 2016

As micro-condos continue to fuel Vancouver’s real estate market, a growing number of residents are turning their backs on small-space living and looking to purchase larger format homes in established neighbourhoods throughout the city.

With the Cambie Corridor earning a reputation for saying no to small, Pennyfarthing Homes is spearheading this approach with their newest project, The Cambie Collection.

“At Pennyfarthing Homes, we believe that our buyers expect more, and that they recognize the value in investing in a better quality home,” says Dr. Anthony Hepworth, President and CEO of Pennyfarthing Homes. “This fuelled our decision to meet the growing demand for larger format, concrete builds in the city. We consider it our life’s work is to deliver this kind of quality, and this superior value, in everything we do.”

Consisting of three phases, The Cambie Collection was inspired directly by buyer demands; an attribute that Pennyfarthing Homes has prided themselves on for over 35 years. All three phases of the collection share a refined elegance, uncompromising quality and masterful design, yet each is completely unique. The collection encompasses a series of landmark residential communities to be built in succession along the prestigious Cambie Corridor on Vancouver’s West Side.

Modeled to provide prestigious, superior, and spacious homes that are built to last in one of Vancouver’s most established neighbourhoods, The Cambie Collection plans are welcomed by many prospective buyers looking to invest in high-quality, spacious offerings. As Vancouver moves towards affordable housing models, the debate is quickly turning to the quality of the building materials. With prices of wood and concrete builds beginning to level out, Pennyfarthing Homes stands by the fact that concrete homes are the preferred choice of prospective buyers.

The first phase, the now sold-out Bennington House, aims to connect the luxury of an established community with the vibrancy of downtown. Featuring contemporary architecture complemented by inviting natural cedar and brick detailing, the Bennington House stunned with its thirty-six beautifully conceived apartments and six intelligently designed townhomes.

Coming off the heels of its success, Pennyfarthing Homes continued its legacy collection of thoughtfully built, large format concrete homes with The Grayson. A collection of 58 finely crafted concrete homes; The Grayson marks the second sold out community to be built in this tradition of excellence.

Pennyfarthing Homes will soon begin planning for phase three, notes Hepworth, continuing their promise of over-delivering homes of the highest calibre, in neighbourhoods with a reputation for quality. Stay tuned, and make sure to follow along as The Cambie Collection continues to unfold.
