Realtor Notes: Something a bit different here for the well-healed condo buyer. A Vancouver Landmark, this Art-Deco style building features amazing 2-level loft-style homes. Seldom offered for sale, most homes sell quickly and for top dollar. Original finishes are reasonable, however most re-sale properties are updated luxury homes. Very limited outdoor space a concern for some but not so relevant for Loft buyers. Changing, vibrant Yaletown location and building with reasonable amenities (save for pool).
