Good ol' Mariner Village gets some publicity when a detached unit sells above asking price, thanks to high-end improvements and prime location. I found this little tidmit in the Vancouver Sun on July 23rd.
"A two-storey detached townhouse in the Mariners' Village complex had been renovated to such a high standard that RONA had featured it as a cover story in its in-store publications . The attraction? The interior features precision woodwork with crown mouldings, chair rail and baseboards, solid maple floors, and 18-inch porcelain tiles, and the airy, vaulted, living room opens on to a large stamped patio. The corner position ensures that the fenced yard has a high degree of privacy and includes ample room for a table and chairs. The development contains 220 units in three stages that were built in the mid-1970s in a prime location that stretches along the Steveston dike. It also comes with access to a health club with an indoor swimming pool, spa and sauna"
