On July 18th the Rize Construction and Development Team, along with several of the project designers, came together for an impromptu celebration of the groundbreaking at the Gold House construction site in Metrotown, Burnaby.
The planting of a young tree is a traditional symbol of good luck and resiliency and a bunch of us participated in this by ceremoniously planting a Chimes Japanese Snowbell sapling at the site. After the ceremony this tree was donated to City of Burnaby Trees and Landscape Building Department. The ceremonial shovel was artfully hand-painted by Rize General Superintendent of Projects, Grant Balacko.
The groundbreaking was a great celebration for the team following several years of design and approvals followed by the exceptional sales success of both Gold House towers! Over 96% of the homes in both towers were sold in less than two weeks, with 85% of these homes being sold to residents of Burnaby and Vancouver.
With 490 homes, Gold House will be home to close to 1,000 residents, will feature Canada’s largest outdoor digital artwork and is located steps from Metrotown, the Metrotown SkyTrain station, and Central Park.
We would like to extend a huge thanks to the design team, our partners, the Magnum Sales Team, the City of Burnaby and most especially our future homeowners for getting us to this exciting juncture for Gold House!
The Rize Construction Team works very expertly and quickly, so keep an eye out for the 42 and 28 storey Gold House towers emerging into the Metrotown Skyline over the coming months!
