Realtor Notes: Very attractive urban, loft-style homes in prime Gastown. Amazing views from upper, north facing homes while south facing homes face a bustling Water Street. Boutique buildings and homes seldom offered for sale (especially those prime north facing suites). On-site parking is very limited so many owners opt to rent monthly parking in nearby Water Street parkade(s). Area remains edgy/vibrant so appeal is to certain type of buyer. Summer is busy with tourists and nightlife so south facing Water street can be a bit noisy.
