No need to choose between your pet (or kids) and having a great apartment

You’ve been there: searching for a new place to live, your cat purring in your lap (or walking your keyboard), when the apartment rental site you’re viewing abruptly filters out 95% of the options the moment you click “Pets Allowed.”

The Conflict

If only for a nanosecond, you wonder what life would be like if Fluffy went to live with your in-laws or parents. Does applying for that stunning new apartment with the granite-topped kitchen island and stainless steel appliances really have to threaten your relationship with your furry-friend? (How long do cats live anyway?)

Now picture it’s your toddler cuddled in your lap rather than Fluffy. Let’s face it, if you think finding a place with your cat is hard, imagine finding great apartment rentals when you have children. You know, you’ve tried.

But imagine no longer. Simply look toward the North Shore mountains: a solution is here.

The Opportunity

Steps off Lonsdale Ave and nestled on a bright corner of East 18th Street in natural North Vancouver, new rental development The Saint George delivers a feast of special offerings: the red carpet has been rolled out for you, your children and pets to enjoy contemporary design and all the modern amenities of a brand new apartment building … together. A family- and pet-friendly vibe flows throughout; there’s even an outdoor kids’ play area on-site.

Built by Jameson Development Corp (in association with Macdonald Commercial R.E.S. Ltd), a modern approach to traditional living has been the focus from the start. Macdonald Commercial’s Managing Director Tony Letvinchuk shares, “[this is a] much-needed residential rental building for the North Shore market. It’s a very complex approval process - Jameson has pulled all the pieces together to create a “win-win” for tenants and the community. Our Macdonald Property Management colleagues report very active tenant interest with 1/2 of the building already rented."

Beautifully-appointed with luxurious condo finishes, smoke-free suites and inclusive of heat, hot water and an on-site caretaker, you’ll find several hospitals and schools are only a short walk or drive away. Local amenities are also easily accessed — including shopping, restaurants, public transit or your morning latte.

Whether on your own or with others in tow, there’s the perfect space for you: choose between one-, two- or three-bedroom suites and even a townhouse if you’d like a little more space to move. ADA suites are also available (customized for special needs). If you’re curious to take a peek inside, bring your kids or try out that pet backpack so Fluffy can help you choose the new home you’ll love together.

Want to grow veggies for yourself or teach the kids about farm-to-table sustainability? There are garden plots available. Love heated floors, energy-efficiency AND a move-in incentive tech bundle from TELUS? You got it. How about secured underground parking, electric charging stations and indoor/outdoor bike storage? You guessed it – it’s all there for you at The Saint George.

Since you have the kids or your furry friends with you, there’ll be all those dishes and laundry to do, right? Within the list of bonus features, you’ll find your very own in-suite dishwasher and washer-dryer set. Perhaps you’re simply a foodie or workout a lot – either way, you can clean up with ease.Can you feel yourself exhaling already? You’re welcome, it’s their pleasure.

Finally, after a long day at work or play, kick back with a glass of wine on your patio or invite friends over to celebrate your new home in the residents’ amenity room. Everything you need is as close as your next great idea.

With its proximity to North Van’s Lonsdale Avenue and a mere minutes’ drive to highways north for your weekend at Whistler or ferries to Vancouver Island, it’s also a snap to connect with points east or south into the City … and beyond.
