Reside Eastside at CORDOVAN: Urban living at an affordable price

Dec 19 2017, 4:30 pm

Metro Vancouver is notorious for being the most expensive place to live in Canada, making it seemingly impossible for young Vancouverites to purchase their first home. But local developer Boffo Properties wants to change this with its new East Van project, CORDOVAN.

With homes starting in the mid-$200,000s, CORDOVAN has the lowest price point for new construction in Vancouver with prices starting from approximately $418 per square foot. Just steps away from some of Vancouver’s most vibrant neighbourhoods, CORDOVAN’s price point gives first-time homebuyers an affordable opportunity to own a modern stylish home while also joining an eclectic and ever-evolving community.

“CORDOVAN’s location in East Vancouver gives Vancouverites a chance to be a part of the ongoing evolution of this neighbourhood,” said Daniel Boffo, principal of Boffo Properties. “From cobblestone streets to independent boutiques to some of Vancouver’s best eats, it’s a great time to reside in East Van.”

Created in collaboration with Gastown’s award-winning Gair Williamson Architects, CORDOVAN will include 24 one-bedroom flats and two-storey, two-bedroom homes with rooftop decks. The residential development features a modern industrial architectural design with burnished metal sunscreens that filter light to the upper-floor homes and coloured corten steel panels at street-level. Light, open interiors designed by award-winning BYU Design which add dramatic flair to the open-concept interiors. Expansive windows, overheight ceilings and extras like spacious rooftop decks and individual front doors off an open-air courtyard, complete the stylish yet functional layout.


With CORDOVAN’s location at 557 East Cordova Street, residents are perfectly situated to take in the ambience of East Van. Creative hub Railtown is to the north, Commercial Drive to the east, as well as Gastown to the west and historic Strathcona and Chinatown right to the south.

Along with market homes, CORDOVAN also features five non-market units that will be managed by Boffo Properties’ non-profit housing partner, Community Builders Group.
