188 Keefer is the latest in a series of innovative urban developments by Westbank, to provide high quality opportunities for achievable home ownership in the city of Vancouver. An example of creative envisioning, progressive financing, excellent timing and a key location – 188 Keefer is a bold addition to Vancouver’s vibrant Chinatown community.
HOW IT WORKS – A PROVEN MODEL
If you want to own but you currently rent or think that ownership in the city is inaccessible, 188 Keefer is designed for you. Following our precedent-setting prototype, 60 W. Cordova, we’ve created a collection of modern living spaces that are desirable and attainable.
ACHIEVABLE HOME OWNERSHIP
With only a 5% deposit required, one-bedroom ownership starts from $239,900 and two-bedroom ownership from $399,900. Customized mortgage solutions and financing scenarios will be a vailable through Vancity to further enhance the affordability of your purchase. Many people discover that ownership at 188 Keefer costs even less than renting, while enabling them to build equity through home ownership.
WHY WE’RE DOING THIS
We believe that progressive urban development results in stronger communities and better cities. Both 188 Keefer and 60 W. Cordova are situated in historic Vancouver neighbourhoods. Residential ownership in these one-of-a-kind projects is designed to be achie vable, inclusive and sustainable, contributing to the diversity and liveability of the city.
60 W. Cordova was a prototype for providing achievable home ownership in Vancouver. Based on principles of inclusivity and doing more with less, the project was developed by Westbank, in collaboration with Vancity, Portland Hotel Society and Habitat for Humanity.
How Habitat for humanity helped Jessica find a place she can now call home
"I have always wanted to own my own place," says Jessica Numminen (a 60 W. Cordova homeowner; who had previously moved 30 times). "I feel really blessed because I have at least now broken the cycle with my daughter."
