The Met - 6540 Metral Drive

The Met, north Nanaimo - promotional photoWe've all been watching this development progress - it's the place near the Home Depot and Milano's in North Nanaimo. This is a PRIMO location if you want to live right in the middle of shopping amenities, between two highways (convenience) and just seven minutes from ocean beaches or mountain forests. There are five storeys with underground parking - the top floor has a common-area patio for enjoying distant ocean and mountain views. The listings went live mid-September 2019, with 1-bed units starting at $295,000 +GST. Fifth floor units have 10' ceilings and range from 1-bed for $360k and up, to 2-bed units for $440k-$500k.

I read the developer's disclosure carefully, so contact me if you want more information about this development, or see below for my "Cole's Notes" version of the developer's disclosure.

The Met - More Information

I read carefully through the developer's disclosure and have boiled it all down below. 

Two phases of construction (both approved by the City):

  • Phase 1 (building A) - 66 strata lots plus 1 commercial strata lot
  • Phase 2 (building B) - 32 strata lots

Developer: Metral Projects Ltd (Rick Windley of locally well-regarded Windley Homes is sole director) - incorporated December 21, 2017 under incorporation number BC1146246 specifically for this project.
Strata Management: The developer intends to get West Coast Strata Management Services Ltd. to manage the strata.

  • Each building will be a five storey wood frame building on a concrete parking garage. 
  • Most but not all parking will be in the parkades. Five surface stalls will be for vehicles displaying disability signage and four will be visitor parking.
  • Secured bicycle storage lockers will also be included at both buildings.
  • The developer intends to lease stalls to buyers and to "assign the Head License for the Parking Stalls to the strata corporation" when the last stall is assigned.
  • Building A will have storage lockers on every floor and in the parkade. Building B will have storage lockers only in/adjacent to the parkade. The developer intends to license the lockers from the strata to itself, and to assign lockers to buyers, intending to "assign the Head License for the Storage Lockers to the strata corporation" when the last locker is assigned.

The common property will include the two big road entrances and the driveway between them, a signage area with landscaping, low-maintenance landscaping throughout, 106 vehicle parking stalls and 120 storage lockers, private utility service mains (water, sewer, drainage, utilities incl. gas*), and ornamental street lighting (there is also reference to a common rooftop patio). Balconies and patios are limited common property.
*The gas is for powering the hallway pressurization units, and for gas hookups in fifth-floor suites' kitchens (for owners of those units who prefer a gas range).

Unit entitlement and voting power are both equal between all units including the commercial strata lot 1 (the commercial unit gets 5 of the parking spaces assigned to it).

The bylaws are planned to be filed at the Land Title Office. Features include:

  • 2 pets maximum
  • Rentals restricted (it's not clear to me what the rental restrictions might be) 
  • No age restrictions

Building A units will have:

  • Stainless steel electric cooking range and oven
  • Stainless steel fridge
  • Stainless steel dishwasher
  • Stainless steel microwave with range hood fan
  • Front load electric washer and a ventless head pump dryer
  • Electric hot water tank
  • Electric baseboard heating (fifth floor units will have a variable flow condensing HVAC unit for heat and air conditioning)
  • Common window coverings
  • Smoke and carbon monoxide detectors
  • Fire supression sprinklers
  • Level 5 units will also have a gas fitting in the kitchens in case they want a gas stove.
