The seller had been living in the unit for six years and the buyer is from Toronto. The furniture was included.
“They flew in from Toronto and did a tour with the buyer’s agent, and they fell in love with this one,” listing agent Holly Wood said.
What they got
The corner two-bedroom unit has views of Coal Harbour, Stanley Park, sea and mountains. The building was originally an office tower for Westcoast Transmission built in 1969, but was converted to condos in 2006. The building has a unique design and appears to be suspended from a concrete core. It’s also unique in that it was built from the top down. Few units with this plan come up for sale in the Qube, Ms. Wood said. The unit has hardwood floors, 9-foot-6 ceilings, gourmet kitchen and comes with furnishings and two parking stalls. The building includes 24-hour concierge and four high-speed elevators. It allows rentals and pets.
The agent’s take
Most properties selling are under $1.3-million, Ms. Wood said.
“The market has really changed. Things are sitting longer; buyers are taking their time. If you get a good offer in this market, take it, because who knows what will happen next year.”
The number of foreign buyers have also dropped off.
“With all these taxes, it’s a big deterrent.”
