Another POLYGON project around Metrotown? It wasn't too long ago when they launched and sold out CHANCELLOR in record time.

Found this on the BuzzBuzzHome Blog:

The tower itself is pure filler. The easter inspired townhouses are horrible.

The tower itself isn't too bad, but...ewww. Is that the Beresford side? Better not be.

All in all, it seems pretty much a standard suburban hi-rise condo ... except that red corner side .... crass and ugly. Whose idea was that, anyway?

Maybe there's a raised prow on the other side of the building that we can't see in this rendering, if so I know dleung will be impressed.

bleh... towers which need to rely on ostentatious colours for "visual interest" have no architectural merit

The shine is definitely off the market.

I assume this is still enough to go ahead with the project? Financing is usually dependent on a certain number of pre-sale contracts.

The lacking sales for the first day, as per Metrotown standards, is indicative of a cooling condo market. I expect the value of the condo's to decrease 15-20% over the next year, suggesting that the 138 pre-sale purchasers at Moda will take a financial hit when they move in. In addition to the new mortgage restrictions, it seems that the only direction presales are going is down.

Selling out a project on the opening day/weekend in any project isn't the historical norm. 55% is pretty remarkable given current conditions. I think this reflects the pricing and reputation of the developer (Polygon).

WarrenC12 - pre-sales requirements vary depending on the project and the developer - in this case, Polygon should be fine to proceed.

I would be more worried about even larger scale projects like Solo District and Station Square...they will add a lot of presales inventory, and just like resales, when there is more inventory for sale, prices are affected.

Solo District is already priced well for buyers to line up. $230k for 1 bedrooms and $375k for 2 bedroom. Very reasonable compared to other parts of Vancouver/Burnaby.
