Everything is bigger out west, even the condos. We looked into the new condo markets of ever-booming Calgary and the very vertical city of Vancouver to see just how big things get. And we were definitely not disappointed by the mega-sized suites currently for sale.
We used our own data to find the largest five suites in the two big cities and found super-sized terraces and penthouses with plenty of room. Take a look!
5. Plan M, The Private Residences at Hotel Georgia, 667 Howe St, Pacific Centre Mall, Vancouver
You got to hand it to hotel-condo hybrids: so many of them have popped up on our lists detailing the largest suites in Montreal, Toronto, Ottawa and now Vancouver. This particular unit spans a total of 3,721-square feet and features 4.5 bedrooms, a triangular balcony and a jaw-dropping price tag of $8 million.
4. Shoreline 602, The Village on False Creek, 123 W 1st Ave, Vancouver
This suite has a terrace larger than most condos in the city: 1,452-square feet is devoted just to outdoor space. Coupled with the 2,818-square feet of interior room, the total footprint of the home is an enormous 4,653-square feet. In this 3.5-bedroom suite, the master bedroom, living space, kitchen and second bedroom all feature balcony access.
3. Penthouse 2, The River, 135 26 Ave SW, Calgary
Yee-haw! The largest condo currently on the market in Cowtown measures a staggering 5,745-square feet in total, with 597-square feet devoted to outdoor space. Indoors, the suite comes equipped with 3.5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The big space comes with an even bigger price tag: this penthouse will cost you $8,389,500.
2. Kayak 1101, The Village on False Creek, 123 W 1st Ave, Vancouver
If outdoor space is just as important to you as interior space, this suite is for you. The sweeping rooftop terrace space spans 4,241-square feet, more than the 2,800-square feet of inside room. The 7,041-square foot penthouse has room galore with 3.5 bedrooms and three full bathrooms.
1. Bridge 1101, The Village on False Creek, 123 W 1st Ave, Vancouver
It’s no surprise that The Village of False Creek, which already took the second and fourth spots on our list would also be home to the largest new condo on the market in the West. Once again, an extra-large terrace increased the overall size of the space, which measures 7,793 square feet in total. How much of that is on the outside? A whopping 4,311-square feet. Aside from the mega-terrace, the penthouse is home to 3.5 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms.
