I’ve often been asked by Vancouver condo buyers to show them properties in a Vancouver hotel/condo building. Non-resident condo buyers particularly like this type of ownership, because they have the valet services of the hotel. In most cases the Vancouver condo building shares the amenities with the hotel and sometimes the concierge as well. The condo building will have its own elevator and secured parking.
Which are Vancouver’s Hotel/Condo Buildings?
The first to come to mind is Vancouver’s Shangri-la condo, which is currently Vancouver’s tallest building at 62 storeys. Just opened is Vancouver’s Residences on Georgia. The old Hotel Georgia is a Vancouver icon and was the hotel of choice for Hollywood stars. Equal in quality to these two is Pacific Rim Fairmont Estates at the bottom of Burrard Street. Then there’s the smaller and very exquisite L’Hermitage at 788 Richards Street. The Marriott in Coal Harbour was the first to be built. Vancouver’s Fairmont Pacific Rim Estates at the foot of Burrard Street is the most luxurious.
Will The Ritz Define Vancouver’s Downtown Skyline?
Across from Vancouver’s Shangri-la on West Georgia Holborn are now working on what may be the new Vancouvr Ritz condo/hotel (or if not the Ritz, it will be another brand name hotel), which is meant to be re-visiting the market as a pre-sale at the end of this year or early next. It will be Vancouver’s tallest building and condo prices will start at $1200psf.
