The Action: It helps when yours is the only one of its kind. This stylish Yaletown condo was the only two-level unit in the area available at the time, so a deal came together quickly. “We had open houses on the Saturday and Sunday and we had multiple offers on the Sunday evening,” agent Nina Margiottiello said.
What They Got: This two-level, loft-style condo is one of the corner units in the Tribeca building and comes with 18-foot ceilings, hardwood floors, stainless steel appliances, granite countertops and barbecue-ready balcony. “It’s a little bit smaller; there’s only 58 units,” Ms. Margiottiello said. “It’s considered a boutique building.” The unit comes with one parking spot and an exterior storage locker. The gourmet kitchen is outfitted with a gas stove and plenty of work room on a large kitchen island.There’s lots of storage, including a 140-bottle wine fridge.
The Agent’s Take: “Spaces like these are rare in Vancouver and remind us why we love this city,” Ms. Margiottiello said. “This loft is steps from dinner and drinks in Yaletown, shopping on Robson Street or a leisurely stroll along the Seawall. The city’s best boutiques bars and restaurants – including hotspots like Commune Café, Uva Wine Bar, Cibo and Homer Street Café – are all in the ‘hood.”
