Railtown Loft in a Cultural Mecca is Steps from the Waterfront and Trendy Nightlife

This beautiful Railtown Loft is sold after less than a week on the market. A huge win for the sellers who have their bags packed and are headed off to the Big Apple. We took care of all the paperwork for them as they were busy getting ready to leave. 4 offers were received on this place – all over asking, and all subject free. We were able to have it go for over $1000 per square foot! We hope that the buyers are able to enjoy this area as much as we do. Located in The Edge building, the surrounding area is ideal for anyone looking to mix some modern urbanism in with historical aspects of Vancouver. This is where Vancouver’s roots are planted with plenty of heritage buildings and old school architecture all around The Edge. The perfect blend of East Vancouver location while still being able to mix in the Downtown Living culture. Take a peek at the video virtual tour below, and then we’ll hit you with all the info that you need to know.

Around Railtown

The area around The Edge is still developing and changing in its infancy, and was profiled by the Vancouver Sun in a 2016 article. The railtown loft is right in the middle of this neighbourhood; close enough to be walking distance to Gastown, while also in the heart of the new trendy restaurants, shops, and nightlife of Railtown. As mentioned, Postmark Brewing is right across the street from The Edge. Postmark brews a wide variety of craft beer, as well as serving as an urban winery. The famous Ask For Luigi Italian Restaurant is also in close proximity, a great place to go for top-class Italian fare without breaking the bank. This neighbourhood can’t be mentioned without talking about the Railtown Cafe, one of the healthiest and choice restaurat chains in Vancouver.

Also within the area of the Railtown Loft is the historic Chinatown Neighbourhood¬†which is always serving up authentic food and shopping from businesses that have been family owned for generations. The Stadium-Chinatown SkyTrain station is also only a 10 minute walk away. Continue your stroll into Gastown and see what one of Vancouver’s entertainment centres has to offer.
