Navio at the Creek
Construction site for Navio at the Creek, part of the The Creek development by Concert.

Concert is preparing to start presales for phase two of their popular “The Creek” development with the launch of Navío at The Creek.

The building is actually the third to be constructed in the development, which sits between Quebec Street and the former Olympic Village, south of Science World. Once the development is complete, the now-empty surface parking lot will be transformed, with a new park connecting the seawall to East 1st Avenue and several new buildings and lanes.

Construction on the first building, a non-market affordable rental apartment building owned by the City of Vancouver, is already underway. The 15-storey building will also have two childcare centres in its podium. At the same time, crews are working on the underground parking lot for Voda, the first phase of The Creek by Concert.

Here’s what to expect with Navío: A total of 177 units, with 110 of those units being two bedrooms or larger. There will also be townhouses up to three bedrooms.

NAVÍO also includes a rare offering of 18 distinct townhomes featuring impressive entrances with two-storey stone façades and gated front patios. Follow the seawall home to your front door and enjoy more breathing room both inside and out.

Concert is accepting registrations at thecreekbyconcert.com

Phase one of the development, Voda at The Creek, sold out quickly after launch last year, with many buyers waiting in line outside for days.
