Hawthorne Corner’s urban living spaces are part of the larger neighbourhood of Hawthorne, inspired by the walkable country villages of Europe. An enclave of ultra-modern one bedroom and loft-style urban homes, Hawthorne Corner also includes several convenient shops and services. It’s the ideal blend of the live-work concept – village living with an urban flair.
Designed with imagination, built with care and filled with thoughtful touches, Hawthorne Corner is a truly unique place to live and work. Created and finished with the latest “Green Technology” products. Non-toxic wood products have been used in the interiors and units are equipped with green-friendly lighting and low-flush toilets. You’ll also enjoy the rich landscaping that connects the Corner to the surrounding neighbourhood.
Hawthorne Corner is located across from Vancouver Island University, with bus service right outside your door. Follow the beautifully landscaped pathways and head down the street to the aquatic centre, ice rink and sports fields. These community pathways also connect to Buttertubs Marsh, a four-acre protected bird sanctuary next door and to the Trans-Canada Trail. From here it’s easy to bike downtown to visit the waterfront, or to go swimming in one of the three freshwater lakes within the city. The best Nanaimo has to offer is right around the Corner.
