West Creek Village touts homes with pricing comparable to local rent

May 3rd, 2011

A local development company says it has paid attention to what the Nelson market needed and has come up with affordable housing.

The result is West Creek Village, an eight-home condominium community with two-bedroom designs on the ground level and three-bedroom living on the upper level.

Located on Perrier Road within City limits and adjacent to Cottonwood Creek, the units are priced from $225,000 for a two-bedroom unit to $289,000 for a three-bedroom unit, according to their site at

Developers Pat Davis and Al Benjamin of West Creek Developments said they studied trends of the real estate market in the West Kootenay region and felt they could approach housing in Nelson in a more responsive way.

“I wanted to help people by providing quality new construction with home ownership comparable to local rents,” said Davis. “This is a beautiful place and West Creek Village is a much needed addition to the community. We designed it to provide quality living for many different lifestyles.”

The location is walking distance to Baker Street.

West Creek Village will be opening their show suites to the public on May 14 at 11 a.m.

The plan

The units sport nine-foot ceilings, vaulting on the upper level, solid maple cabinetry, custom built-in entertainment centre and wall-mounted fireplaces.

As West Creek Village nears its completion date, West Creek Developments is offering a $15,000 cash back incentive to the first three home purchasers.

The incentive can be used for a partial down payment, to pay off other obligations, lower the mortgage amount or just about anything.
