Two Newer Condos near Commercial Drive


Commercial Drive, similar to Mount Pleasant and Kitsilano, has a lot of older condo buildings, though the area is starting to see a few newer build. This will give Buyers the choice between an older building with a little more square footage in the unit and regular building maintenance, or a newer building with less square footage in the unit but less building maintenance (at least for a number of years).

Take a look at these two newer units in the Commercial Drive / Hastings area – both with their own pros and cons. Both buildings were built in 2012 and have less than 20 units in total, and both buildings allow pets and rentals (making it a great investment property). The differences end there..

List Price $399,000
MLS®# R2000824
Type Townhouse
Built In 2012
Living Area 594 sq.ft.
Bedrooms 1
Bathrooms 1 full
Maintenance Fee $170.95/mo.


This unit at 2503 Woodland Drive is a townhouse unit with a large front patio which would be large enough for a sitting and dining area. The unit itself is small (specifically the living/dining area), but it has a proper bedroom and no wasted space. The unit has quite a bit of in suite storage along with a storage locker in the parkade. The interior of the unit is modern, and has windows on two sides (thanks to it being a corner unit). The unit also comes with 2 tandem parking stalls (one in front of the other) which is great if you have friends or family visiting, or an extra motorcycle. Every unit in the building has it’s own hot water tank which is always good to hear (it’s better for future maintenance of the pipes).

The building is located off Broadway and East 10th, which puts it only a block to the Commercial Drive Skytrain Station that can take you downtown, along with the Safeway for all your groceries.




Realtor’s Remarks: This 3 year old corner suite has hardly been lived in. All the bells and whistles in this lovely Boutique Style Buildings. A super convenient location, situated on the Woodland Bike route and bus route to downtown. The unit is considered a townhouse and has two separate entrances with a large wrap-around garden patio for entertaining. Additional features include ultra-modern finishings in the kitchen with granite countertops, lots of closet space, extra insuite storage, separate hot-water tank, insuite laundry and an extra bonus in a 2 car tandem parking space with room enough for a scooter. Bike room and storage in garage.
