It’s all good ’cause Beijing has ‘Vancouver Forest’!

And I would guess, that it’s not marketed at Canadians.

You are not bright enough to understand the name is actually marketing to NON Chinese speculators hoping to cash in.

Mandarin Residences for Chinese only?

How about:

Bohemia – is it for Czechs?

Virtu – for Italians?

Espana – for Spanish?

Olympic Village – for Greeks?

The Erickson – for people named Erickson?

The Westside – for Westerners?

@Anonymous: “Umm who said whites couldn’t buy at the Mandarin Residences?”

No, just highly discouraged. And not just whites, but anyone who isn’t Chinese. Its heading in the wrong direction, further encouraging the ethnic balkanization that’s becoming all too obvious.

Umm who said whites couldn’t buy at the Mandarin Residences? Half the condo complexes and most streets in Vancouver have a British name. What provice do we live in – BRITISH Columbia. Should we ban Chinese food restaurants because it implys only Chinese can eat there?

@Rakim: McMartin should disclose his interest in rising RE prices. If he’s feeling smug’n’comfy about a healthy increase in the value of his house, he may simply not understand how stressed the average Vancouverite is about housing affordability, or realise how offensive/taunting his columns come across.

@Laibach:

I’d say that scenario is unfolding for the last several yeas if not a decade or two. For example, I will never forget the scene when I walked into HSBC IT office in Burnaby and literally all employees were Chinese speaking only in Chinese.

I was recently in the US and walked in a TD Bank. Everyone in there was speaking Canadian. Unbelievable! If RBC opened a bank in Hong Kong do you think people might speak English?

@Patriotz’ No.1 Fan:

How is it possible that a developer (Polygon) can get away with building a building without floors that end with 4. (I presume 4 is the dreaded unlucky number for the Chinese, correct?)

For example, in the highrise I am renting, there are no 4th, (13th), 14th and 24th floor. This is so misleading. If you live on the 27th floor, you are actually living on 23rd. To me that appears to be quite a difference.

They have no problem in the taller buildings with floors in the 40s. The reason they do is because people will pay more for the 27th floor over the 23rd floor even if it is on the same level. I bet most people who buy the presales do not even know which floor they are actually buying.

@MR:

“Mandarin Residences” in Richmond?

Now I don’t know about you, but buying into a place called “Mandarin Residences” seems to imply a certain something about the buyer. It is not hard to tell which group of buyers they are targeting.

Why is the media so shocked when people blame “rich Chinese” for high prices when developers target that supposed demographic so blatantly.

What the marketing is trying to do is exactly what it did with you. It created the illusion this complex will be in high demand by rich Chinese. In fact it will be bought by people who plan on flipping to rich Chinese in the future.

it’s not wealthy immigrants that jacked up the price of moldy East Vancouver shack. It is the locals that created this mess.
