Realtor Notes: Attractive, industrial-style building featuring ‘cool loft-style homes’ which are a first for the immediate area and more typical for neighbouring Main Street (SOMO). Location may be challenging for a noise and dust/auto exhaust sensitive home owner as development is located between a busy Main and Quebec Street traffic corridor. However, convenient location may be a worthwhile trade-off plus air conditioned homes well let you keep windows closed as required. Podium homes may see larger balconies (North facing) used much more than tower home decks. Interiors look reasonable-good but small size appliances not great for gourmet cooks. ‘MECCANICA’ offers the young, active, ‘Loft-loving’ urbanites /investor a reasonable value/concrete investment with good location just a short walk or transit ride to all amenities. ‘Cressey’ boasts a long list of quality developments throughout Greater Vancouver. Building since 1969 with a solid reputation for quality homes & good customer service/follow-up.
