A new listing just came out in the Alexander building located at 27 Alexander, in the heart of Gastown. Very rare for homes to go up for sale in this building as the location, condition of the building and ability to rent make this building a phenomenal investment. Only one other home sold here in all of 2014! This loft on the 2nd floor facing North has North Shore mountain views, 2 beds, 2 baths and a rare parking spot. Offered at $675,000 this could be a great home or a high end rental. Furnished this would likely rent for well over $3,000/month. For more information on this property or any others you can contact me at 604-363-7858.
