Our bathrooms at REVIVE are spa inspired. What that means is that you can have a spa-like experience while carrying out your daily routine in our bathrooms. The use of large format porcelain tiles on floors and tub surrounds, fixtures in Champagne bronze finish, wall-mounted faucets above double sinks and oversized rainfall showerhead are details that create an elevated, luxurious and polish 5-star hotel ambiance for the user. The materials used are not just for looks, they are also of high functionality. Beyond aesthetics, tiles have very good water proof properties, thus making it durable and easy to clean. REVIVE bathroom is not just a bathroom, it’s your personal spa.

Vancouver is a vibrant city with numerous parks of varying sizes and REVIVE is ideally situated in the heart of these sprawling parks and green spaces. Within a 3 km radius from REVIVE, there are already a number of big and small parks, such as the famous Queen Elizabeth Park, Langara Park, Tisdall Park, Oak Park and Cambie Park locating at the closest. Cambie Park is 0.93 hectare in size and has dramatic giant redwood trees that separate the small park from the busy Cambie Street. REVIVE also benefited from these sound blocking trees and enjoyed a serene living environment. Living close to a park has many positive impacts to our daily lives. The big green field can be a safe and generous playground for children, a perfect open space for gatherings with family and friends, an encouraging environment for outdoor workouts and an ideal spot for dog walkers and their precious four-legged companions. Basically, this modern Mecca is every outdoor enthusiast’s, cyclists’ and dog walker’s dream.
Golfing is a popular sport in Vancouver. From summer to winter, the golf courses, pitch and putt or the driving ranges will be open for those who golf regardless of the weather. There are 66 golf courses in Greater Vancouver and whether they are traditional courses (18 holes) or mini courses (9 holes), Vancouver has some of the top rated golf courses in Canada.
Situated right beside REVIVE is Langara Golf Course, one of the oldest golf courses in Vancouver at an age of 95. Built in 1926, Langara Golf Course is a traditional style 18 holes par 71 course. The contoured, tree-lined fairways are easy to walk and make this challenging course appealing to players of all levels.

Every corner in the home can be a relaxing oasis and the bathroom happens to be an important one. The bathroom is where we begin and end each day and for most people it is a sanctuary where they unwind, find inspiration and just be themselves. It is probably the one room that we take most for granted.
At REVIVE, the design and materials used for the bathrooms are taken seriously. We aim to provide an exceptional bathroom environment that are both luxurious and practical for the residents. Better yet, to provide a “spa at home” experience in the bathroom. Use of marble tiles, top branded sanitary wares and brass gold sanitary hardwares are key elements for it’s modern and luxurious ambience. Beyond the aesthetic qualities, tiles are moisture-proof materials, so they are perfect for use in bathrooms and while top branded sanitary wares are simply stylish, what’s more important is that their high quality products could guarantee durability. Each bathroom also features a large three-doors mirror with integrated lights and behind the sleek mirror is a hidden cabinet for everyday bathroom necessities. The hidden mirror cabinet can declutter the tabletop and keeping it pleasant and clean.
Every detail of REVIVE living brings wellness in your life. For more details on our design concept and special project features, click the link in our bio!
Our wishes to every Canadians, may you all grow and prosper and take our nation to the new height. On this Happy Canada Day, it’s time to embrace our Canadian heritage and be sure to spend this joyous day with family and friends! Happy Canada Day Everyone!

Technology has made all types of fruits and vegetables available for people to eat all year round. Although they may look the same, but in season fruits and vegetables actually have more nutrition and flavours than produce that’s not in season. Most importantly our bodies are made to eat seasonally and they can provide necessary nutrients appropriate for the time of year. For example, summer fruits such as berries, peaches, nectarines and other stone fruits contain vitamins that help protect against sun damage. With so many benefits, remember to look out for and eat more of the in season fruits and vegetables during the summer times.
Have a berry happy week ahead and be well!

Revive strive to incorporate sustainability into luxury living in any way possible. Take the exterior envelope of Revive homes for example, they are all uniquely framed with Cold-Formed Steel, a strong, durable and 100% recycable material that provides a stable structure with a low impact on the natural environment. Furthermore, steel frame structures are also fire resistent, earthquake resistent and when used with concret will provide better sound proofing. Revive is a low-rise residential development and by employing steel frames we are building the homes with the same robustness and quality of a high-rise tower.
“Wellness Matters”. Because we believe that wellness is a strong foundation to live well, we’ve created the Wellside Collection, a series of residential developments in Vancouver West. REVIVE will be our first development from this collection and it is a cluster of 93 luxurious steel-framed townhouses on Ash Street and West 52th.

In difficult times like now, having a healthy mind is as equally important as wearing a mask during a pandemic. Our physical health and emotional health are intimately intertwined, so even if we are trying our best to protect and maintain our physical health, we shouldn’t forget to look after our mental health.
While most are still working remotely from home or not being able to see other family members and friends like pre-pandemic times, it is very easy for us to feel emotionally fragile and weakened. Therefore, we should take extra care of our mental health especially in the current situation. One easy and time efficient method that we can do to maintain our mind is to practice daily meditation. Studies show that even just a few minutes a day, meditating can give many benefits to the mind and the body. Some reported benefits include reducing stress and anxiety, enhancing self-awareness, improving focus and sleep, helping with pain control and decreasing blood pressure.
We strongly believe that Health and Wellness are crucial to living a happy and well-balanced life, so our principle is to build homes that improve one’s health and wellness.

Sleep can have a significant impact on one’s wellness and mental health. Poor sleep can affect your emotions, thought processes, behaviours, and body sensations.
Focusing on a good night’s sleep can include avoiding alcohol, caffeine, and digital screens too close to bedtime. Belford aims to improve noise and light reduction and air quality in our developments to enhance our resident’s nightly sleep routines. How much do you sleep a night?
February 3rd is National Carrot Cake Day which can be a healthier choice for everyday dessert cravings. Belford believes that diet is an important aspect of wellness and it can be beneficial to have a low-sugar sweet treat from time to time but not regularly.
