It's "First Look" Friday, which means open houses for real estate agents only ("agent's opens"). We get the chance to see properties that have just come on to the market in advance of the public so we can recommend the ideal properties to our clients.
Considering how beautiful the snow-covered mountains looked on this day, we took at look at a studio suite at The Lions West development. The Lions are two towers located between Alberni and Georgia Streets (named for the Mountain Range on the North Shore of Vancouver) – on the border between the West End and Coal Harbour. Since this 18th floor suite – listed by Bruce Gibson – faces north and has a corridor view of the North Shore Mountains, Stanley Park and Burrard Inlet, it feels more like a Coal Harbour home than a West End property.
This studio apartment is 396 square feet with in-suite laundry, a small office area and a nice kitchen. The living room / bedroom area would suit a double size futon/convertible sofa. This condo would be ideal for an investment property to lease out - with the number of foreign students favoring the area - vacancy would not be an issue. Listed at $299,000
