MacLean Homes to launch Oceana in July 2009-a Parksville condo project branded by NextPhase and focused on the retirement market

MacLean Homes today announced that it will be launching its Oceana project in July 2009. The project has been on hold since last summer due to the economic downturn. NextPhase worked with MacLean Homes to rebrand the project, which was previously known as Seabreeze.

“We’re ready to launch Oceana,” stated Dave Webster, VP of Sales and Marketing for MacLean Homes. “With the market beginning to rebound and the project rebranded, we’re confident that buyer interest will be strong this coming summer.”

Oceana is a condominium project located in Parksville, BC. NextPhase positioned the project around the Island-living lifestyle and the many opportunities it offers. As the development is a few blocks away from the beach, we couldn’t claim a waterfront location. However, we did communicate a waterfront feel through the use of text, images and sound, plus a clever tagline – ‘A New Wave of Living’. The branding and messaging focuses on the community aspect of the project – kilometers of walking trails and a community garden on the doorstep.

“With the branding and marketing package produced, we’re confident that MacLean Homes will be successful in selling out the project within the first six months – even given the uncertainty of the housing market,” said Ullrich Schade, President of NextPhase.
