The condo: This condo will check many if not all of your boxes. The building is solid concrete and less than 10 years old. As for space, enjoy 1,335 Sq Ft over one level and kick back on the large, private 364 Sq Ft covered patio spanning the south side of the unit. And with three bedrooms, you’ll have enough room for the kids. As for extras, the corner unit has windows on two sides, two side-by-side parking stalls, and a large storage locker. If there’s one box it might not check, it’s the fact that this condo is on the ground floor—it is, however, elevated from the street.
The building: Creekside is a 2008-built BOSA building. The complex features 165 units over 22 levels and boasts fantastic amenities: a fully equipped exercise centre, common lounge, playground, sauna and bike room. Also, the building welcomes both pets and rentals.
The neighbourhood: This condo sits at the eastern end of False Creek. Not only are you a hop, skip and a jump away from morning runs and evening strolls on the seawall, but this home sits on the edge of some of the city’s most exciting neighbourhoods. Shop, dine and explore Chinatown, Gastown, Main Street and Olympic Village. With a walk score of 97, you’re not far from anything you need.
Potential downsides: You will hear some noise from the SkyTrain, which runs nearby. Although that does mean you’re close to a few different transit options.
