The information in this special guest post was provided by Manny Riebeling. Manny is a Realtor in Vancouver who specializes in downtown condominiums and luxury properties. He lives in Yaletown and enjoys new technology, food and traveling.
Thalia is the newest addition to the family of buildings created by James Schow, and joins others like Grace, Iliad, and Artemisa. Just like these previous buildings, Thalia promises to be a great success in the market of luxury boutique buildings.
Thalia will be created with the same attention to detail and the finest materials and craftmanship that characterizes James Schow’s buildings.
Located in trendy Yaletown, this means that the new owners will have easy access to the restaurants and night clubs that the area has to offers. The closest park to the building is Yaletown Park (1 block), the second closest park is Hamilton park (2 blocks). If you have a dog and want to take him to a doggie friendly park, you will be able to take it to Coopers Park (3 blocks). For grocery shopping you can either go to Urban Fare (3 blocks) or Costco (5 blocks).
Regarding transportation, the building will provide a Rolls Royce that will be shared with the other buildings of the same developer, you’ll just have to book it (not sure if there will be an additional fee). You can also take the Sky Train at Yaletown Station (3 blocks) or the bus just outside the building. If you have a boat, you can park it at Quayside Marina (3 blocks) and you can either rent a slip or buy one.
Thalia, will be the second building in Vancouver to provide an automatic parkade system. That means that when you want to park your car you will just leave the car in a giant elevator and the system automatically will park the car underground in an empty slot. To retrieve the car, you just go to the garage area, swipe your fob key and the system will bring it to you.
Pre-sales will start soon and the starting price will be around $1,100,000
