#501 28 Powell in the heart of Gastown
THE LOCATION – Literally right in the heart of Gastown – Vancouver’s oldest neighbourhood kitty-corner to the legendary Gassy Jack Statue and across from the famous flatiron building, the historical Hotel Europe. Situated in the hub of all the Gastown action, 28 Powell is only steps from Vancouver’s hottest scene. Starting with Sardine Can underneath, the Diamond Club a stone’s throw away, L’Abattoir (one of my personal faves), and tow of the city’s best patios – Six Acres and LOCAL (formerly Chill Winston) just across the street, this location is home to many of the city’s (and Canada’s!) best restaurants. One block over is the notorious Blood Alley which hosts a few amazing options for funky eats: Tacofino, SALT Tasting Room, Gringo Tacos and MEET. This is one of the coolest and most historically-rich region of Vancouver. Read more about the history —–>HERE.

THE SPACE – #501 is the front corner-unit on the fifth floor of this boutique six-story building. It comes flooded with sunlight from a bank of floor-to-ceiling windows that faces north-west, overlooking Gastown with views of Lion’s Gate bridge, North Shore and Mount Seymour to the right. This one bedroom layout is rare and unique– the open concept kitchen flows into the dining and living area, bookended by a den/office nook around the corner, and a super-cozy master bedroom, hidden behind a custom-built barn door. See 3D floor plan below.
THE SPECIAL FEATURES – This condo has seriously loft vibes with its 10′ concrete ceiling criss-crossed with exposed conduit, polished concrete floors, and an open floor plan. The kitchen features quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances, under-mount sink and garburator, and floor-to-ceiling cabinets. In-suite laundry is included, and it’s a stacker conveniently located beside the kitchen. A roaring gas fireplace sits perfectly in the fine Italian marble feature wall, with a mounted TV above. Bathroom includes a 70″ soaker tub. AND a major bonus and rare commodity in this ‘hood is a parking stall: #501 has a sweet spot in the secure underground parking lot, along with a secure storage locker and bike room.
THE PRIVATE ROOF TOP DECK – This is so RARE in Gastown. #501 has a private rooftop deck two floors up, accessible from stairwell. Only a few units in the building have their own roof top plot, and this one happens to have one of the best north-west facing patios. The 250 sq/ft space has insane views across Gastown to the heart of Downtown and spans past Canada Place to North Van and the range of mountains beyond. A bonus – it’s equipped with an automated watering system, so you can have a set-and-forget rooftop garden. With amazing sunsets, it’s ready for many BBQs and bottles of wines to be crushed up here.
