Urban Cool Union St. Sub-Penthouse
#805 – 221 Union Street, Vancouver
The ultimate expression of urban cool. Make your way to the edge of Chinatown to your sub-penthouse retreat along Union Street, just East of Main – a growing, vibrant, chill location. An incredibly rare offering – impressive 2 bedroom plus den, 2 bathroom, 1,088 square foot executive suite with polished concrete floors and an expansive 350 square foot private patio with city and mountain views. North-exposed floor to ceiling windows invite you outdoors to dramatically extend your living space – a perfect pad for entertaining and swooning. Don’t miss the opportunity to enhance the outdoor living area with a dramatic firepit, or bring in a designer to optimize the space to match your creative desires. The open concept kitchen is the perfect place to begin your evening. Gather your guests around the long island featuring quartz countertops and plenty of space for bar stools. Enjoy a glass of vino while you whip up something on the gas range. Not a master chef? No problem. Head over to the BBQ (gas hookup outside) or go for a quick ride down the elevator to Union Street (read further). With access to the patio, the large master suite stays cool through the Summer, and offers a custom walk-through closet leading to a spacious ensuite with large stone countertops and a separate shower and tub. The flexible second bedroom is perfect for guests or plans to expand down the road, with sliding frosted glass walls and 9 foot wide closets. Speaking of storage, there is no shortage of it here with two large entryway closets and a comfortable den currently offering a custom built-in desk and sleek hideaway floating cabinets. If you haven’t made your way to Union Street, now is the time. It just keeps getting better. A bike lane separates the retailers from the road, offering a spirited streetscape and cool vibe with patios and happy hours. You don’t have to look far for a cappuccino, pint of beer, or creative cocktail. Stumbling distance indeed. With a mix of eclectic fashion boutiques and old school Chinatown shops and urban fair, this is the place to hang your hat if you’re looking for something cutting edge and upscale. Need a hard sweat, but not in the mood to hit the second floor gym? Check out the high intensity classes and group running nights at Tight Club a few doors down… or if martial arts is more your flavour, Diaz Combat Sports is right around the corner. With greenspace at your doorstep and a variety of parks nearby, this is a prime choice for dog owners. Steps to Strathcona, a short walk to the Seawall and Olympic Village, 7 minutes to the SkyTrain, a leisurely stroll to the Downtown core or Gastown, and simply fantastic access if you’re a commuter driving in and out of the city. With a concierge, rentals allowed, plans for an expansive new St. Paul’s Hospital site around the corner, and all of the growth and cool new spots sprouting within 500 meters of this 2010 built concrete midrise residence, this is a phenomenal investment and incredible lifestyle offering. BONUS – one external storage locker and secure bicycle storage available in the building. 1 parking is included.
