Recently, a client of mine, a lovely young lady and first time BUYER, purchased a one bedroom and one bathroom condo at 989 Nelson Street in downtown Vancouver. Prior to the late 1990's, this was the BC Hydro Building - an office tower.
I had never been in the building before and was really impressed with the successful conversion to condos. This unit faces the Wall Center and has an extra city view in its reflection! At only 496 square feet, the great layout made it feel more spacious.
This building allows all owners to rent out their units, with short term rentals allowed as well.
It is a big building, with 446 commercial and residential units, originally built in 1957. Much of the exterior has been beautifully maintained with its vintage aquamarine tiling. It is also a great location, central to so much.
It is always great to add one more building to my list of "Vancouver buildings I have gotten to know". Especially after living here for more than 50 years!
