Building Community in Royal Bay

Sense of place and community grows as more businesses and services open in The Commons
”Royal Bay really is the epitome of convenient seaside living” - Cortney Paone, Gablecraft.

The number of bedrooms and bathrooms, the layout, whether or not you can picture yourself making dinner in the kitchen…These are just pieces of a much bigger picture when you’re buying a new home.

In fact, for many prospective homeowners, location, lifestyle and community are just as important – and why Royal Bay residents have many reasons to call the thriving new seaside neighbourhood in Colwood ‘home’.

“We’ve always wanted for The Commons to act as a central gathering place, somewhere for residents to find everything they needed within walking distance of their homes, and it’s been fantastic to see that vision come to life,” says GableCraft Homes Marketing Manager, Cortney Paone.

Since Quality Foods opened its doors in May, many other businesses and services have followed suit, including Cascadia Liquor, Starbucks, Next Level Childcare, Scotia Bank, Pure Integrative Pharmacy and Acera Insurance, creating a one-stop-shop easily accessible by foot, bike and car.

Picture yourself preparing dinner in the kitchen, the fresh pacific ocean breeze blowing in through the window, while you look forward to an evening walk after your meal…find it all in Royal Bay.

Royal Bay always has something engaging for residents to look forward to. The Commons is currently hosting a free art exhibit titled ‘The Sum of Our Parts’ running on Fridays and Saturdays until November 4th. Meanwhile families can’t wait to dress up and get their boogie on at the annual Monster Mash in Meadow Park Green October 29th.

“Royal Bay really is the epitome of convenient seaside living, and with our next two developments, Southlands and Echo, already available for pre-sale, now is a great time for young families to secure their place in this vibrant, growing community,” Paone says.

Echo features 135 townhomes ranging from two-bedroom, two-bedroom-plus-den and three-bedroom homes that offer spacious living areas, ample storage, balconies and built-in garages.

“Echo homes are perfect for families looking for elegant, comfortable living spaces without the added responsibilities that come with owning a single-family home. These bright, modern townhomes are within easy walking distance of The Commons,” Paone says.
