Cordovan East Vancouver

This fall Boffo Properties will launch Cordovan, a stylish new four-storey residential development at 557 East Cordova Street in Vancouver.

Cordovan will be comprised of 24 one-bedroom flats and two-storey, two-bedroom stacked townhomes with their own rooftop decks and front doors. Priced from the mid $200,000s, Cordovan is an affordable opportunity for first-time homebuyers to enter the housing market and join a vibrant and diverse East Vancouver neighbourhood.

Created in collaboration with Gastown’s award-winning Gair Williamson Architects, the industrial-inspired facade of Cordovan is the epitome of urban cool, with burnished metal sunscreens that filter light to the homes, coloured corten steel panels at street-level, expansive windows, over height ceilings and extras like spacious rooftop decks and individual front doors off an open-air courtyard.

The interiors have been designed by award-winning BYU Design and will include while and black colour palettes that add a dramatic flair to the open-concept layouts.

The strong attention to design coupled with the project’s incredibly affordable price tag make it a rare opportunity.

Cordovan’s location in East Vancouver gives Vancouverites a chance to be a part of the ongoing evolution of this neighbourhood,” says Boffo Properties principal Daniel Boffo. “From cobblestone streets to independent boutiques to some of Vancouver’s best eats, it’s a great time to reside in East Van.”

No doubt. And Cordovan’s address puts it in the middle of the action — within easy walking distance of all the trendy shops and restaurants that make up neighbouring communities such as Gastown, Chinatown, Railtown, Commercial Drive and the downtown core.

In addition to market homes, Boffo Properties is working with East Vancouver humanitarian organization Community Builder’s Group to incorporate five non-market housing units into Cordovan to support people in need of housing.
