Urban Character Meets Contemporary Living at West Five

By 2015-04-21

At an intersection that blends Vancouver’s urban history with its exciting future, Burrard Street and West 5th Avenue, is where you’ll find Orr Development’s newest project – West Five.

West Five promises to be one of the hottest new high-end condo buildings in the city.

For those discerning home buyers who expect uncompromised beauty and sophistication, West Five offers an unforgettable West Coast modern lifestyle in the heart of one of Vancouver’s most popular beachside neighbourhoods – Kitsilano.

Surrounded by beaches, eclectic shops and fabulous ethnic eateries, West Five is a distinctive boutique building applying strong graphic architectural lines by award-winning Yamamoto Architecture that consists of 24 contemporary residences. The homes include studios + flex, one, two and three bedroom + den homes ranging from 432 to 2,119 square feet of luxury living space. 

Inside, residents will enjoy the beauty and simplicity of Scandinavian design. These magnificent homes are curated by refined features: nine-foot ceilings, expansive windows, engineered wide-plank Kentwood hardwood floors and 100 per cent wool carpeting in the bedrooms.

The show-stopping gourmet kitchen will inspire the culinary master and aspiring chef to cook feasts for family and friends. Each kitchen showcases value-added materials: Caesarstone countertops, Calacutta marble backsplash, a carefully chosen colour palette with incorporated wood, luxurious touch-point cabinetry, and a premier stainless steel package featuring a 30-inch Fhiaba refrigerator with custom cabinet door panels, interior icemaker and bottom freezer, a Wolf gas range and a fully integrated Blomberg dishwasher.

Each home also includes those extras that heighten your living pleasure: in-suite storage/flex rooms with additional secure storage lockers available in the underground parkade, gas connections for outdoor cooking and heating on all balconies and spacious, green-laden rooftop decks with sweeping mountain, water and city views.

Meanwhile, everything is within walking distance. Step outside your new design-forward glass and concrete home and you are minutes to the pulse of the neighbourhood, the world-famous Kits Beach, numerous boutique shops, restaurants and coffee bars.

West Five comes from award-winning Orr Development - a respected and trusted family name that has been a part of Vancouver’s changing landscape for more than 80 years. Renowned for creating vibrant urban neighbourhoods, Orr Development builds residences that deviate from the norm. Its CEO, Tim Orr, is a proud fourth generation who continues the legacy of excellence in quality started by Reginald Orr.

“Designed to LEED Gold standards, these homes offer the best of cosmopolitan living in the hub of a sought-after community,” says architect Taizo Yamamoto. “This sleek, contemporary building is a unique solution to the design of mixed use residential properties.The abundant outdoor balcony spaces are integrated into the form of the building and are seen as outdoor rooms, extensions of the interior space.”

The Grand Opening of West Five is Saturday, May 2. The Sales Centre, located at 1817 West 5th Ave, Vancouver, will open every day (except Fridays) from noon to 5pm.

In advance of the Grand Opening, interested parties can contact the sales team at 604-715-6060 or [email protected] for private previewing opportunities beginning in late April. For more information, visit
