Living in Vancouver gives you bragging rights for so many reasons, and you only need to look outside to see why. Surrounded by snow-capped mountains, the city is like one big Instagram backdrop.
Not only this, in 2018, Vancouver ranked the sixth most livable city in the world, in The Economist Intelligence Unit’s annual Global Liveability Report — the third consecutive year that the city was ranked one of the world’s most livable cities.
We really do have the best of both worlds when it comes to the weather, in contrast with other areas of Canada (sorry, Toronto), and we’ve got beaches that you still want to visit for scenic strolls during wintertime.
Being able to access the most beautiful parts of Vancouver from your home is something special. With that in mind, here’s what your life looks like when you move to English Bay.
If you’ve lived in a basement suite with tiny windows facing out towards your neighbour’s place, English Bay is even more of a treat for the senses.
It’s where Vancouver’s shores join the Pacific Ocean, and with this comes the scenic English Bay beach. From the Bay, you can see out to Sunset Beach, West Vancouver’s Lighthouse Park and Ambleside, to Kitsilano, and part of the Seawall.
Living in the English Bay beach community offers convenience that you just can’t find in the suburbs. With a central location, it’s a walker’s paradise and you can walk to downtown Vancouver, Yaletown, and Coal Harbour, in minutes.
The area is also incredibly convenient for cycling, and you can always hop on a bus if you need to because you’ve got a wealth of transit options at your fingertips.
When you’ve got shops, services, and eateries such as Cactus Club Cafe, The Three Brits Public House, Red Umbrella Cafe, and Legendary Noodle, in your neighbourhood, things are good.
Plus, you can enjoy all of the services located throughout the West End including the aquatic centre and West End Community Centre. And let’s not forget massive local events like the annual Honda Celebration of Life fireworks extravaganza and the Pride parade.
You could soon be living in one of the most beautiful areas of Vancouver at the brand new English Bay Residences rental development opening May 1, 2019. If you’ve been searching for a place that optimizes downtown living, this is it.
Located at the heart of English Bay at 1668 Davie Street between Bidwell and Cardero, the suites are designed by DA Architects for modern living with features and finishes that you don’t typically find in a rental.
Picture it now: An open concept living room and kitchen, European-style soft-closing cabinetry, high-end appliances, a soaker tub and rain shower, quartz countertops, in-suite laundry, storage, efficient heating, and postcard-worthy views from your balcony — all in a pet-friendly community with a dog washing station.
As a resident of this new concrete rental development, you’ll have access to an amazing rooftop terrace with a BBQ, firepit, and communal garden, as well as a gym, and a children’s play area for the little ones.
The luxury building comes with concierge and secure package drop-off, secure underground parking and bike storage, and electric car charging stations. Oh, and discounts for Maple Leaf Self Storage, Telus, Zipcar, and Mobi Bike Share, for residents.
Apply to rent today because you only get one chance to live somewhere like this in English Bay.
