KEEFER BLOCK – BY SOLTERRA GROUP OF COMPANIES – VANCOUVER NEW DEVELOPMENT AND PRESALE

KEEFER BLOCK – 189 KEEFER STREET – VANCOUVER WEST  V6A 1X4


A return to Chinatown’s Heyday. Few neighbourhoods embody Vancouver’s cultural history, diversity and vibrancy like Chinatown. Sharing its beginning with Gastown – Vancouver’s birthplace – Chinatown’s roots trace back to the late 1800s when it was settled by early Chinese immigrants. Just over a century later, this historic community holds the distinction of being the second largest Chinatown in North America – a proud center for Chinese Canadian culture and a vital part of Vancouver’s cultural identity.

Immersed in the sights and sounds of Chinatown, Keefer Block puts you steps away from dozens of the city’s coolest shops, cafes and bistros. Nearby T&T market, IGA Gastown and the various local markets lining Main and Pender Street make grocery shopping fun and convenient. You can play in the sun and walk the dog down the street to Andy Livingstone Park or experience the nightlife a few blocks away in vibrant Gastown. You’ll enjoy easy access in and out of the city via bike, transit, skytrain or car, not to mention the benefits of the city’s many green spaces, parks, walking trails and bikes paths.

FEATURES
The Keefer Block’s clean modern homes evoke the streamlined efficiency of a high-end European flat or pied-a-terre. With multi-functional areas maximizing space and innovative storage solutions minimizing visual clutter, each interior invites an organized sense of calm. Wide-plank engineered hardwood in the main living areas ensure beauty and durability, while architectural details like a sleek, frosted glass panel door in the bedroom or den provide a distinctive finishing touch in select homes.

The neighbourhood’s roots may be in China, but the Keefer Block’s prestigious kitchens and bathrooms find their inspiration in Europe, combining wood and high gloss lacquered Italian style cabinetry, stone countertops with full height backsplashes and a Porsche inspired multi-position kitchen faucet. A high-end stainless steel appliance package with gas wok-burner will satisfy your inner chef, while a deck or balcony — perfect for container gardening and alfresco dining – is the ideal complement.
