It’s no secret that the housing market is expensive (and tight) in Vancouver, but now, a newly available unit on Craigslist is sure to leave residents feeling the squeeze – both literally and figuratively.

The unit is located in a 1920s-era building called the Normandie at 1425 Haro Street, and measures a grand 259 sq. ft.

It’s listed by Plan A Real Estate Services who are advertising the place for ‘just’ $2,100/month.

Yes, over $2,000 for under 300 sq. ft of space.

Let’s take a closer look at this palace, shall we?

For starters, it’s pet-friendly, so hey, that’s a bonus – providing you can even fit another living thing in this space with you of course.

It has a bedroom, good. It has a bathroom, also good.

It’s been “completely modernized.” Well, shoot, if that doesn’t want to make us move in today, we don’t know what will.

Oh hey, there’s also laundry available – unless you’re in the basement unit, apparently.

You’ll also need to furnish this place yourself, but finding one piece of furniture shouldn’t be too hard. And hey, there’s free internet and hot water!

Other “selling features” of this “newly renovated” castle? It’s close to Robson Street, grocery stores, entertainment venues and the “financial district.”

So if it’s finally time to live the downtown Vancouver dream in all its glory, this might just be the place for you to move into.

Pack lightly though. Storage space will likely be a bit of premium.
