Wait until you see the rooftop patio

May 20, 2016

The details: PH 602 – 256 E 2nd Ave.| $1,200,000 | 1070 sq. ft. | 2 bed, 2 bath

The Condo: This is penthouse living along the Main Street corridor. This two bedroom, two bathroom home features a spectacular 480-sq.-ft. rooftop terrace that shows off stellar views of the city and mountains. It’s a show piece to be sure and a great place to unwind with friends or solo after a long day. Inside, you’ll find an open concept layout with a modern kitchen that includes a high end appliance package and island breakfast bar. The living area has dark hardwood throughout, as well as a sleek gas fireplace and wall mounted TV. The bathroom has crisp finishings with both a walk-in shower and soaker tub and the bedrooms are spacious. Two parking spots and one storage unit are included.

The Building: Jacobsen is a seven-year-old concrete building developed by Intracorp. It has live/work zoning, which is a rare feature in newer buildings.

The Neighbourhood: Located at 2nd Ave. and Main St., the location is incredibly central. With easy walking access to the Main St. corridor, the Olympic Village and Chinatown, you have options at your doorstep.

Potential Downsides: There is traffic noise to deal with from 2nd Ave. And at $1,121/sq. ft., you are definitely paying a premium to say you own a penthouse.
