In the past, real estate in Vancouver was bought and sold on a square footage basis. There was little discrepancy between well-designed spaces and not so well designed spaces. For this reason, Vancouver residential homes became a formula with the majority of them looking the same. These days, Vancouver real estate is being considered with a new set of parameters. The average, commoditized Vancouver condo is proving not just challenging to live in, but challenging to sell as well, while the well-designed, unique spaces of the city are wonderful places to live and proving to be great Vancouver real estate investment opportunities for the future. There is no better example of well-designed, unique spaces in all of Vancouver than Terminus Gastown condos on Water Street. The Gastown Terminus condominium residence development has quickly become the poster-child for innovative, thoughtful design and is leading the current Renaissance of Gastown real estate.
