Open House: A Yaletown penthouse... for less than $1-million?

Jul 18 2017, 3:33 am

Not all of us are millionaires (surprise surprise), though we can all still dream of living it up in that classy Yaletown apartment, throwing awesome parties for our equally-if-not-a-little-less-cool friends, and sipping on some expensive, hard to pronounce drinks.

Well, we’ve found that exact place—and you don’t even need a million dollars to own it!

Granted, if you do win that $1-million jackpot on the next fateful Scratch & Win you purchase, you’ll only have a few hundred dollars leftover if you were to buy this place outright. But that’s $200 that can go towards planning that awesome house-warming party!

Plan #2: You could just become friends with whoever does actually buy the place and get invited to all their crazy parties—no messy cleanup required.

Address: 407 – 1066 Hamilton St, Vancouver

Neighbourhood: Yaletown

Listing Price: $999,800

Listing Agent: Paul Albrighton, RE/MAX Crest Westside Realty

Elevator Pitch: A one bedroom apartment in Vancouver is automatically assumed to be claustrophobic, but this place shatters those premonitions. With the high ceilings, open concept living room, wide windows, and skylight; this apartment packs a big place into a small area.

Highlight: Brick walls + exposed wood ceilings = instant class.

Potential turn off: The same price could get you a house… but not in this city.


  • 930 sq. ft. with one bedroom and two bathrooms
  • 10″6′ ceilings
  • View of the city
  • Common rooftop patio
  • Underground parking
  • Literally two buildings away from Tacofino
  • Centrally located
  • In a building called “The New Yorker”

Take a quick tour

Breakfast, anyone?

The best wooden beams are exposed wooden beams

Check out them angles

High ceilings just make everything look so small

You can stargaze—then make a snack

So many restaurants within walking distance

Won’t be banging your head in this shower

Is that a metal door?

Still gets some natural light!
