Vert (French for green) seems the perfect name for the 140 condos and townhomes planned for Mission Springs Drive in the Lower Mission. “There’s both an environmental and social connectivity to Vert,” says Renee Wasylyk, president of Troika Developments. “People want to lead an active lifestyle and also have the chance to be a part of a community. Vert is built around the idea of surrounding living spaces with green spaces, community gardens, paths, beaches — you name it.”   liveatvert.ca
