This could very well be peak luxury for penthouse living in Vancouver.
Two penthouse suites listed for resale at the under-construction Vancouver House tower, now one of the tallest buildings in the city, each offer panoramic urban and water views. But there is more to their opulence than simply the outward sightlines from high above.
For example, Penthouse One – listed for $10.889 million – spans two floors and has five separate outdoor patios, and that does not even include the private rooftop deck with a hot tub.
The total outdoor living space floor area alone is 2,336 sq. ft., on top of 2,334 sq. ft. of indoor living space with two bedrooms clad in marble, 2.5 bathrooms, and a Boffi chef’s kitchen featuring Miele appliances and a custom-designed Corian island by tower architect Bjarke Ingels Group.
Another pinnacle suite, Penthouse Nine, is smaller with 1,879 sq. ft. of indoor living space – with two bedrooms and three bathrooms – and 235 sq. ft. of outdoor living space provided by non-rooftop patios. It has a listing price of $6.888 million.
One of the penthouse suites previously listed for resale even came with a Faziola Grand Piano for its grand salon room. Penthouse Seven was listed for $14.5 million, and it features three bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, and a massive 1,882 sq. ft. rooftop deck complete with an outdoor kitchen, fire pit, and hot tub.
When the patios on each floor are accounted for, the outdoor living space totals 2,299 sq. ft. of floor area. The total indoor space is 3,252 sq. ft.
And for even more luxury, the owner added upgrades including an internal elevator, two-car private garage, and marble kitchen backsplash.
At the time of writing, approximately 30 units in the building are listed for resale.
Vancouver House reached its ‘topped out’ construction milestone in late-June, and it is slated for a spring 2019 completion.
This $400-million project, which also includes a 10-storey podium and two six-storey, triangular-shaped buildings, contains 407 market residential units, 95 market rental units, 80,000 sq. ft. of retail space.
The multi-building redevelopment will create a total floor area of 650,000 sq. ft., and its density is supported by 609 vehicle parking stalls and 723 bicycle parking spaces.
As part of the project’s community benefits, the public realm will also be significantly enhanced, with the adjacent space underneath the Granville Street Bridge completely animated as a new covered event plaza space for crowds of up to 2,800 people. Additionally, there will be a giant rotating chandelier public art piece suspended from the underside of the bridge deck.
