Circling this back to Washington, the sales success here cannot be understated. They had such a strong response to their initial release that they increased it from roughly a quarter of their inventory of 34 homes, to 40%. Demand for townhomes is intense, and their supply is the smallest out of all market segments (maybe mobile homes is smaller, but that's not a growing industry and is slowly being phased out).

 

This developer is also working on a project on Ophir Street in Saanich that will follow the same principles as Washington.

Washington's display home will be opening this weekend, between noon and 2PM on Saturday and Sunday, to preview the build quality of the project's townhomes. Five homes remain for sale and will be revealed as part of the last pre-sales phase.

Missing middle?  The ones friends of HFL keep telling us are illegal to build?  

The $70k Volvo in the rendering with $1k worth of paddleboards strapped to the roof just screams affordable :D

This is missing middle to the last detail and no, it is not affordable housing.

 

I am following the Vibrant Facebook post on this project and people are debating how this housing is not supposed to be about affordability but it could have a small trickle down market effect eventually or maybe not a perceivable one at all. I feel bad for the young people who believed missing middle would bring down housing prices or make home buying affordable  when they finish university. What they don't know yet is when they leave university they will be saddled with high debt at 20 year interest rate highs and their job prospects won't cover all the fancy things they dreamed of having in their 20s. Maybe by their late 30s they'll buy a home if they're smart and start saving immediately.

I promise you no one leaving university right now thinks they can buy a house - don't worry about disappointing them, Banksy. The big dream is more along the lines of having maybe just one roommate, instead of several.
