The Coal Harbour neighbourhood in downtown Vancouver is one of the most prestigious and sought after areas in Vancouver. But we know what that means: EXPENSIVE.
Well, I'm excited to tell you that whether you are a first time home buyer or an investor looking to own in this great neighbourhood, you have excellent options.
One of the buildings that I love and always recommend to clients is "The Qube" at 1333 W Georgia Street (between Jervis and Broughton). Situated in the heart of Coal Harbour, only a block away from the water, seconds to public transit and two blocks away from the Robson Street shopping, this great building completed in 2006.
Having been previously a commercial building, The Qube boasts a sound structure, 4 elevators and commercial grade materials. Because it was converted to residential in 2006, the balance of the 2-5-10 warranty remains for owners to enjoy.
Among the 181 units in the building is 420 sf. studios, 560 sf. Junior 1 Bedrooms, 670 and 770 sf. 1 Bedrooms and 940 sf. 2 Bedrooms, all with the same great 9' ceilings and very well coated exterior windows which allow for complete privacy from the neighbouring buildings.
With prices starting at around the $300,000 mark, you can certainly easily buy into this fantastic neighbourhood. The fact that rentals are allowed in this building is an added bonus for investors.
