28 Powell Street, named Powell Lane has the look and feel of a heritage building from the past but was actually constructed new in 1993. Gastown in Vancouver has a number of these heritage conversion or newly constructed condos with the aesthetics of a heritage condo development.
The look of the building would be more of Manhattan style boutique concrete building, with brick exterior. Most of the suites within Powell Lane are open loft style condos with 17 foot ceilings with exposed venting and lighting, real hardwood flooring and large open style windows. The West facing suites have covered balconies extending the length of the building. If you are facing West, 4th floor and above clears the neighbouring building. If you’re facing East, you’re facing Powell Street and will have an open outlook no matter what floor you’re on. The main elevator goes up to the 6th floor but there’s a 7th penthouse level featuring private balconies. There is a common rooftop area designed for all owners in the building.
Gastown condos for sale are extremely sought after and because of the heritage & height restrictions, you don’t have a volume of suites available. Also, a concern for many buyers of Gastown real estate is the lack of parking. It needs to be noted, Powell Lane suites have both parking and storage locker which is a huge bonus for many Downtown Gastown buyers.
Powell Lane at 28 Powell Street in Gastown is a fantastic location close to many restaurants such as Local, Nicli Antica Pizzeria, La Mezcaleria, Salty Tongue Cafe, the Sardine Can and many others. As for coffee, you’re directly above Milano Cafe. You’re a few minutes from the water and Crab park where there’s a dog park if you have pets.
