Vancouver is one of the more desirable and livable cities in the world and recognized consistently on the international stage. And, within Vancouver, Gastown and Crosstown are among the oldest and coolest neighbourhoods in the city. At 528 Beatty Street, a heritage conversion loft has been reimagined and is now available for purchase.
The two-storey heritage loft, selling for just under $1.6 million, is located in the Bowman Lofts building at 303-528 Beatty Street. Listed by Shawn Brown at the West Haven Group, the property is rare in that it has been completely redesigned and transformed into a luxurious yet practical space.
The location is amazing: steps from retail, dining establishments, and major transit routes. It’s also steps from the massive new Amazon office, plus several other high-quality commercial towers. This speaks to the investment potential.
The property has two bathrooms, one bedroom, a living room, dining room, sitting area, kitchen, foyer, and more within 1,280 sq ft of space.
It was converted in 2010 by the renowned Salient Group, and in recent months, the design team at PlaidFox Studios was tasked with redesigning the loft and carefully blending heritage elements with contemporary fixtures. They were also in charge of addressing various downsides to loft living, such as lack of storage and smaller ‘wall-kitchens’.
Exposed brick, timber beams, and exposed steel structural elements give the aesthetic an authentic loft edge that complements the decor. All furniture and accessories have been custom-selected for this space and are included in the list price.
The spacious kitchen features bespoke cabinetry with brass Restoration Hardware pulls, Silestone countertops, and a seamless single-piece backsplash. Integrated appliances are Bosch and Fisher & Paykel. The island is huge, making it ideal for entertaining guests.
In the living and dining area, a 4.5 ft custom-made chandelier makes a statement and was designed after the owners took note of, and really liked, one at the Hotel Georgia. There is also fully programmable smart home lighting throughout the loft.
A custom banquette along the wall maximizes space and is yet another custom piece designed for the home. Restored and reclaimed hardwood flooring can be found throughout the space. It was reclaimed when the building was initially converted to residential, and here it was restored and retained as it continues its journey into its second century.
In the bedroom, there are two walls with custom-built storage, plus a walk-in closet. This means fashionistas have plenty of space for their collection.
The master bathroom features a double vanity, so there will never be arguments over who gets to use the sink first. There is also a preparation station and a ton more storage for products and small appliances. A Mara Mara marble shower with double rain-heads also makes a statement.
Over in the guest bathroom, the design standard is maintained with over-sized shower, substantial-sized vanity, and full-wall tile.
On the common rooftop deck, residents can enjoy time in the sun while enjoying the gas fireplace and the outdoor kitchen with bbq. The loft comes with one parking spot and one storage locker
