The Grant by Amacon, where old school culture meets modern nostalgia in this coveted East Vancouver neighbourhood

By Michelle Hopkins Sep 6, 2022

Nestled into a quiet enclave at the corner of Nanaimo and Grant, The Grant brings contemporary style and urban refinement to one of East Vancouver’s most established family communities. These homes gracefully balance idyllic surroundings with the energy and sophistication of urban life.

“The Grant is a curated collection of character-filled lofts, townhouses and condos that blend seamlessly with the quiet, suburban surroundings at the corner of Nanaimo and Grant,” says Stephanie Babineau, VP of Marketing and Sales, Amacon. “The Grant merges together traditional, industrial brick with a more clean and modern detailed expression rising above. The Grant lives and breathes modern nostalgia.”

Award-winning developer Amacon unveils The Grant – an eye-catching mixed-use four-storey boutique building comprising 33 studios up to three-bedroom and flex homes, ranging from 455 to 1,270 square feet of thoughtfully curated interiors. 

Conceived by Area3, a design firm known for creating beautifully functional spaces, The Grant connects both living and dining spaces, with an open-plan design that invites the flow of functional modern living. Think black-trimmed triple-glazed windows, high-efficiency heating and cooling system, and custom closet organizers and shelves in the bedroom.

The epicurean kitchens are perfect for making a home-cooked meal or hosting a dinner party. Expansive and open, each kitchen features a Fulgor Milano stainless steel appliance package, square-edge quartz countertops with full-height ceramic backsplash tiles, and custom-designed flat panel cabinetry. 

The Residences offer large balconies and terraces, up to 405 sqft (as per plan) with spectacular city views and fresco living unfolds high above the energy of downtown Vancouver.

“It was important to the suite designs that we integrate the indoor and outdoor spaces to create an extension of our residents' living space. It was our goal to create an environment that encourages our community to engage with their surroundings just as they would their homes”, says Babineau.

The Grant also offers a sense of community with a terrace lounge perfect for movie nights or for private gatherings, a co-working space, a television and bench seating area, and pet washing and bike tune-up stations.

The Grant is an urban, contemporary sanctuary located in the midst of it all. The neighbourhood is vibrant and central. With a high walkable score and harkening to an era gone by, The Grant is steps from all the fabulous independent mom-and-pop shops, businesses and restaurants The Drive and Main Street are renowned for. It is also a few minutes from Trout Lake, a 10-minute walk from the Skytrain, and 99 B-Line to UBC. For young families, The Grant is a short walk to Queen Victoria Annex, Laura Secord Elementary school, and Vancouver Technical Secondary. 

You’ll make the absolute most of your neighbourhood by staying safe in the bike lanes while running errands and exploring your new community on two wheels.
