Name that building to win $2,500 from WestJet

New luxury condo in Comox needs a name

  • Apr. 7, 2016 8:00 a.m.

 

A new luxury condominium development in Comox needs a name, and its developers are looking to the public for help.

The 14-unit premiere waterfront development located at 1829 Beaufort Avenue has been approved by local council and its developers are ready to get the project started. Just one hitch, though – it doesn’t yet have a name. So the Abbotsford-based Tsang family is hoping someone – maybe you – can come up with a suitable moniker.

The person who suggests the winning name will win a $2,500 WestJet gift card.

“We want a name that captures the striking surroundings, stunning views and upscale feel of the project,” says Royal LePage Realtor Mike Fisher, one of the project’s marketing agents. “Nobody understands and appreciates our beautiful environment more than we locals do, so we’re asking the Comox Valley to name this project for us.

“And if the spectacular harbour and mountain views don’t inspire people,” he adds, “the prize certainly will!”

The public has until Wednesday, April 20 to send a name suggestion to nameit@mikefisherhomes.com. The top five suggestions will be chosen by the Tsangs, Fisher and fellow listing agent Richard Verrier; from there, the public will get to vote on their favourite through a Facebook poll.

The winning name – and the winner of a $2,500 WestJet gift card – will be selected on Friday, April 29.

“Everybody is allowed to submit one name suggestion,” says Fisher. “This is a great opportunity to get involved in a prestigious development that’s adding to the local economy and showcases our beautiful harbour.”

Full contest rules and regulations are available at www.mikefisherhomes.com. For further information on submissions or the project itself, contact Mike Fisher at 250-218-3895 or Richard Verrier at 250-702-1063.
