Quest For the Best: Gastown Edition

Neighbourhood Outline

Gastown is one of the most vibrant and historic neighborhoods in Vancouver, and with its old warehouse conversions, and lofts it has become a popular place for artists and entrepreneurs to set up shop in their modern live-work spaces. With plenty of "diamonds in the rough," opportunity is knocking on every corner.

The top three buys for this week's edition of "Quest for the Best" are all located on east Cordova Street. With their exposed break and wooden beams, not only are they architecturally appealing, but they provide ample square footage which can be hard to find in Downtown Vancouver. Loft and warehouse conversion housing isn't for everyone, but have alook at these properties--these hidden gems are definitely worth a quick glance.


 gastown loft, warehouse loft conversion, vancouver loft

Address: 55 East Cordova, Unit #215
MLS #: V850219
List Price: $439,000
Size (sq/ft): 921
Price per Sq/ft: $476

The Korets building offers New York Style lofts that have great architectural features such as exposed brick walls, wood beams and an open concept. Restored in 2006 this heritage building offers 118 live-work strata lots. 

This specific unit offers a fresh modern space at great value. When you compare the price per square foot to that of other buildings in the area you will find significant savings (the Woodward's building, for example, is priced anywhere from $650-$750 per square foot).

Second Best Buy in Gastown

55 East Cordova, Unit #320
MLS #:V849237
List Price: $390,000
Size (sq/ft): 832
Price per Sq/ft: $468

Coming in second for this week's quest for the best is another unit in the Korets Loft. This floor plan is different then most of the lofts at Korets (view floor plan here: Korets loft Floor Plan). Its unique reverse "L" shape helps define your spaces which is often a difficult task in a wide open loft space. With the interiors designed by  Alda Pereira it is no wonder why the Korets ranks high in this weeks quest for the best.

Third Best Buy in Gastown

Address: 22 East Cordova, Unit #608
MLS #: V848866
List Price: $345,000
Size (sq/ft): 702 
Price per Sq/ft: $491 

The Van Horne building is an architectural focal point in the area. Built in 1996 the Van Horne building contains 170 strata units. The building is located in the heart of Gastown and is well known for its double height loft space. This dramatic loft is priced to sell at $491 per square foot.

There you have it the inaugural Quest for the Best entry is complete. Next week we will be heading over the bridge to the Fairview Slopes neighbourhood. Until then, shop wisely and do your homework!

If you have any questions or comments about these properties or other communities that you would like to see highlighted in The Quest for the Best Blog email  or call 778-847-9975

Vancouver Home & Interior Design Show

This weekend, I attended the fall 2010 Vancouver Home & Interior Design Show.  The show this year was held at the new Trade & Convention Centre, a LEED certified building. 


The entrance to this new building is amazing, with a giant replica of the world, alight and floating within a glass atrium-like structure.  The feeling of space and lightness is wonderful, and a great reception to this year’s show. 


Talk about great first impressions!   Just outside the doors to the show are several displays by various local furniture and design stores. 


 Vancouver Home & Interior Design Show

Parliament, a relatively new store in Gastown, touts itself as a mecca for anyone who loves modern design.  To quote Parliament: 

“It’s a crisp, fresh, modern look with an injection of glamour. Our pieces are for people who enjoy open concepts, low profiles, whites, and lots of glass. You can see that inspiration in all of our pieces from tables to bedding to decor. They’re all affordable too.”

I adore the silver sticks in the vase, and can imagine using something similar in my staging designs.  Silver adds that little bit of bling and interest. 


Orling & Wu is another relatively new store, also located in the Gastown design district.  This store carries items sources from Europe and Japan.  Their style is more contemporary, European, shabby chic.  Some wonderful accessories here – can’t you imagine a spa bathroom with some of these delightful additions?

Mid-Century Modern Staging

Mid-Century Modern Home Staging in Historical Gastown, Vancouver

I had fun staging this condo, located in the edgy, up-and-coming area of Gastown in downtown Vancouver.  This area of Vancouver has become a mecca for upscale, modern furniture stores and local clothing designers.  There's a real urban city feeling, and I delighted in playing up the suggestion of a chic, artsy lifestyle.   I also wanted to create a Parisian apartment ambiance, and dotted little touches around the condo, such as an Eiffel tower, a book entitled My French Lifestyle, and artwork with "pomme" and "poire" written beneath the apple and pear, to give a sophisticated atmosphere.
