SOLD: Gastown Loft Style Condo – 206-168 Powell Street

Just Sold This Gastown Loft Style Condo To A Very Happy Buyer

After a few months of shopping around Yaletown and only seeing tiny over priced condos my buyer decided to scope out this lofty open concept 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom unit on the edge of Gastown. Wasn’t the ideal location but after walking about the hood and getting some feedback from others we were lucky to snag this condo rare corner unit before anyone could. I’m pumped for the house warming party 🙂 Check out some pics below.

The Goods

This unit is on the second floor of the SMART complex, Concord Pacific’s first attempt at a Gastown Loft style building. Although not a true loft like we’re used to, the building still in loft style motif; an industrial look on the outside with spacious interiors in each of the units. The unit that our buyer scored is 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms spread out over almost 1,000 square feet (996 sf). This is an open concept corner unit that rarely comes onto the market. The frosted glass sliders on the master bedroom is a huge touch of aesthetic. When the doors are pulled back the entire unit opens right up. In suite laundry. Secure parking and bike room. A laundry list of amenities in the unit. This place feels like home already. The second bedroom as well as flex office space is a huge perk.

Around the Powell Street Area

Powell Street is rich in history, and part of the reason why this Gastown Loft was designed to maintain an industrial look. Although the reputation of the area hasn’t always been painted in the brightest light, the Downtown Eastside/Chinatown/Strathcona neighbourhood is rapidly changing, and opening up the culture of East Vancouver to new buyers. Everything is walkable in the area. Be sure to check out Tacofino for the best fish tacos that money can buy. Right up the street is Ask For Luigi, casual high class Italian fare. The Blarney Stone is Vancouver’s choice Irish Bar, and has live celtic-rock three nights a week. While you’re at the Blarney, check out the Gastown Entertainment District as a whole to find whatever will float your boat. Stadium-Chinatown Station is just a 10 minute walk away on the SkyTrain to take you anywhere else in the Metro Region. Kick back and relax with any of the East Vancouver Craft Beer selections at CRAB Park and enjoy the stunning views of the Downtown Skyline.

All this and much more available within walking distance of this Gastown Loft. Sound like something that you’re interested in? Drop us a line and we’ll get back to you immediately!
