Mid-rise condo in Vancouver
Vancouver‘s Chinatown has been an essential part of the city’s culture and history for over a century. While Chinatown was previously on the decline, it is now recovering thanks to locals who have worked hard to rehabilitate their community and municipal officials who have agreed to ease zoning restrictions. One specific change has had a significant impact on condominium projects like Keefer Block.
Solterra Development‘s The Keefer Block is a nine-story brick and concrete building with 81 units in the heart of Chinatown’s rapidly revitalizing historic district.
Solterra, on the other hand, wants to preserve the area’s historic and cultural significance. Therefore, they’ve given special attention to ensuring that their proposed structure would blend in with the historic area.
At 188 Keefer Place, in Vancouver’s famous Chinatown neighbourhood, historic architecture and old-town charm meet modern in this 10-storey Keefer Block condo.
With contemporary restaurants, cocktail bars, cafés, the Chinatown Night Market, retail malls, notable schools, banks, proximity to transit and the seawall, and condo complexes moving in, Chinatown is fast transforming into one of the city’s hippest areas.
