A Chance to Call One of Vancouver's Most Prestigious Buildings Home
Vancouver is recognized across the world as being one of the most scenic cities anywhere, with a mix of rugged mountains, ample green spaces, and sweeping ocean views. One of the best ways to take advantage of this scenery is living in one of the city’s tallest and most prestigious towers.
The Shaw Tower in Vancouver’s picturesque Coal Harbour neighbourhood is home to some of the most luxurious and beautiful units available on Vancouver’s real estate market. The list of amenities the Shaw Tower offers its residents is truly impressive, centered around ensuring the privacy and comfort of its residents.
This condo unit, located above the sixteenth floor, has large windows that let in plenty of sunlight and offer unbeatable views of Coal Harbour, the surrounding mountains, and several of Vancouver’s signature landmarks. The view from above of ships, sailboats, and tugboats slowly drifting across the Vancouver Harbour is hard to beat.
When the Shaw Tower was built back in 2005, it was the tallest building in the city of Vancouver. It held this title until it was surpassed by the Shangri-La, which remains the tallest building in the city and the province. Today the Shaw Tower is the seventh tallest building in the city and remains an iconic part of Coal Harbour’s skyline and home to several large companies on its lower floors.
Like the other residential units in the building, the stylish interior of this unit was designed by Robert Ledingham—an iconic west coast interior designer. The unit is filled with elegant design choices, including vaulted ceilings, high-end lighting, and a relationship to natural lighting and windows that makes the already-large space feel even that much larger.
The suites in the building have nine-foot ceilings, glass wall ensuites, carefully considered layouts, and high-end details, including granite countertops and a mix of limestone and hardwood flooring.
Those who enjoy cooking and hosting are likely to be thrilled by the kitchen’s U-shaped island design, high-end appliances, and well-thought-out kitchen layout. The sightlines from the kitchen island straight through to the north-facing windows offer the relaxation of preparing food amidst a scenic backdrop and natural light.
This spacious unit has over 2,000 square feet of living space. It has two bedrooms and two bathrooms, in addition to a generously-sized den that could work equally well as an office or a third bedroom. While there’s plenty of space, an abundance of storage and closet organization space further contributes to a sense of spaciousness in this apartment unit.
The apartment’s north-facing windows offer inspiring views of the North Shore Mountains, particularly scenic at sunrise and sunset as the sky lights up in pastel hues. The apartment’s patio is a particularly nice place to take in the scenery during warmer months.
The apartment’s den features two full walls of windows and a sliding door that steps right out onto the balcony. With a large slab desk area, those who work from home could find themselves with an ideal home office set-up, with the natural light and beautiful views offering rejuvenating effects.
The benefits of living high in the Shaw Tower are manifold. According to the Behroyan & Associates Real Estate Services listing, some of the perks of living in this building include twenty-four-hour concierge services, a full fitness centre, a theatre, and office and boardroom facilities. The private, seventeen-seat theatre room has a 100” HDTV projection system and THX surround sound, offering a whole cinematic experience without even heading outside.
Of course, given the building’s ideal location in Coal Harbour, all of Vancouver’s best shopping and entertainment options are a stone’s throw away, and so are the beautiful beaches and walkable streets of Vancouver’s idyllic West End. A brief walk from your front door and you can find yourself at Canada Place, the IMAX movie theatre, and several esteemed restaurants. The Shaw Tower offers resort-level entertainment and fitness options, offering escape and relaxation from busy days in the city.
Beyond the amenities listed above, other impressive features provided by the esteemed Shaw Tower include a licensed daycare facility run by the Vancouver Society of Children’s Centre. The lobby of the building itself is another impressive aspect, featuring a thirty-foot high atrium lobby.
The fitness and health club facilities within the building include a well-equipped and attended exercise area, a massage room, a steam room, and a fitness room, in addition to ample change rooms and lockers. The convenience and high standard of living this building offer contribute to its reputation as one of Coal Harbour’s premier residences.
The Shaw Tower is located at 1077 West Cordova and offers unmatched access to some of Vancouver’s best features—Coal Harbour, Stanley Park, the Seawall, some of Vancouver’s most beautiful beaches, luxury shopping, along Alberni Street and Robson Street, and so much more. When you add in this unit's stylish and spacious design, it’s a clear example of high-end west coast living.
