Mount Pleasant’s Kensington-Cedar Cottage neighbourhood is a unique, culturally diverse neighbourhood that lies in the centre of East Vancouver. Boasting scenic views from the top of the city’s east-west ridge, and running down to beautiful Trout Lake, an urban lake and park, this enclave attracts people far and wide. The quest for a cool oasis in the heart of the city is now over – welcome to Mizan Developments’ Oliver Residences

Oliver Residences

Thoughtfully curated by Canadian Design Studio, A firm shortlisted for a Dezeen Award, Oliver Residences is a Craftsman-style triplex showcased by timeless modern three-bedroom homes created with families in mind. 

“Close to Charles Dickens Elementary and Sir Charles Tupper Secondary schools, Oliver Residences is a new triplex featuring between 1,516 to 1,562 square feet of living space,” says Sean Stevens PREC* Macdonald Realty LTD “One home fronts East 16th Avenue, a very quiet tree-lined street, in which the entire front lawn is reserved for this home. Meanwhile, the other two residences have private fenced backyards. Two of the homes feature garages, while the other has a large outdoor parking pad and ample bike parking.”
