Don’t miss this 2 bedroom Mount Pleasant condo! This is one of my favourite “older” buildings in Mount Pleasant thanks to the maintenance record of the building and the future potential of the area (and with clients in the building, I know it’s history). The building itself went through a HUGE exterior project a few years ago, giving it new windows, new doors, new balconies, new soffits, new fully rainscreened hardi-plank exterior, re-pointed brick and more.  The building has also re-done the roof, plumbing, exterior fencing and lobby, and still maintains a solid contingency fund, so I would consider it one of the best maintained buildings in the area.

The building offers underground parking (with lots of street parking available as well), full size storage lockers and bike racks (with the ability to add a personal bike rack to your parking space). There is shared laundry on the main level of the building with 3 washers and 4 dryers though there are some units with in suite laundry.

This complex offers some really interesting floor plans, and ones that differ from the standard floor plan you see in a lot of East Van condos. A number of units in the building have been updated, and there’s lots of flexibility in what you can do with the space – so contact me if you’re looking for ideas!

Thanks to it’s location on a hill, North facing units have views of the city and mountains that should be protected from future development. The location of 1066 E 8th Ave puts you between Main St and Commercial Drive (a short 15 minute walk to each street) with the VCC-Clark Skytrain station only 2 blocks down the street, Vancouver Community College across the street and E Broadway one block up (which is getting better and better all the time with new shops like Roosters Ice Cream, The Black Lodge and soon Nada Grocery).

2 cats and 1 dog are allowed. At this time rentals are not allowed, but the minutes show that in recent years the desire to change the Bylaw has been growing.

As for the unit itself, it’s a 863 sqft 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom unit with some upgrades to the interior space (photos to be uploaded shortly!). The big draw is the huge 400sqft outdoor space, perfect for gardeners, dog owners, and outdoor enthusiasts, giving you more space to spread out and a great place to relax or entertain.
