GALILEO' on Robson

‘GALILEO’ on Robson – 822 Homer Street, Vancouver, BC. V6B 6M3
(Downtown)

Central location in the heart of Vancouver’s Entertainment District.
World famous shopping of Robson street,theatres, countless restaurants, coffee bars all at your front door and the Financial District / Yaletown all just a few blocks away.

The GALILEO is a understated, modernist design and provides buyers with an affordable choice in a location that offers the height of ‘Urban Living’! Brick and glass façade with city views (some peekaboo mountain views) from the 8th floor & up. Evidently, the developer traded off outdoor space on the majority of homes (save for '02' plans, Sub-PH & PH's) for enclosed solariums providing greater living space (dens).

Simple, sparse, entry-level finishings/decor in both the suites and common areas/amenities. Bright, modern kitchens most with eating bar.

Realtor Notes: Located at the corner of Robson & Homer Street, buyers cannot find a more convenient, prime Downtown location with all amenities at your door. It’s for this reason that the building attracts many rentals/investors. Layouts are reasonable but many homes have den/solariums rather than outdoor space (no AC) which is really no big deal (save for hot summer days) for this location. Forget the BBQ as you have dozens of fast to fine dining establishments just steps away. Building is reasonably well managed but ready for amenity, lobby & halls re-fresh in the near future. Prices are very attractive given the location while many suites have already been updated and are ready to enjoy. A very liveable, vibrant location and rentable investment. Buyers/investors looking for value, without all the ‘bells and whistles’ may do well to look at this property while considering taking on a renovation to 'take things up a notch'. Homer Development Corporation is unknown to the provider of this info.
