Over the past few years, local tech and real estate leaders have given Mount Pleasant the boost that it needs to become a world class tech hub, taking cues from similar areas in cities like San Francisco, Seattle and Los Angeles. The neighbourhood, which is already in high-demand due to its unique personality and convenient location, is poised to become one of Vancouver’s most sought-after real estate markets.
One particularly attractive property went on the market just today in the Collection 45 building located at the corner of 8th and Main. The unit features 2 bedrooms, 2.5 baths over 1096 square feet on the top two floors of the building, and includes one parking spot. As for outdoor space: There are both North and South facing patios, and one of the best views in the neighbourhood from its a private rooftop patio facing the downtown skyline.
The property boasts all of the features that homebuyers are looking for including hardwood floors, high end kitchen upgrades, heated floors, and more. The unit is currently being listed at $899,000 and you can view the listing here.
Of course, there’s lots more than just startups and technology in Mount Pleasant – it’s also home to great shopping, coffee shops, craft breweries and community centres.
Local realtor, Jeff Appelbe (Oakwyn Realty), has been living in the area almost six years: “It’s an amazing community to live in, with a great mix of shops, restaurants and craft breweries that you can’t find anywhere else. In terms of property investment, demand has been very strong in this area, as it is across Vancouver. When we consider more tech facilities and companies coming to the neighbourhood, it’s fair to assume that could continue to fuel demand over the next several years, especially in unique properties like Collection 45.”
