27 Alexander St
27 Alexander, named “Alexis”, is a 8 level, 26 unit building with concrete construction and a brick exterior. The building was built back in 1997, and currently sits near Gastown’s main intersection at Carrall and Alexander/Powell, putting you close to Six Acres, The Diamond, The Alibi Room, Tacofino, Guu, The Pourhouse and so much more including more restaurants, bars, locally owned clothing shops, furniture stores and more. You’re only a few blocks to Waterfront Station to catch the Skytrain and are an easy walk to Chinatown, Yaletown, Olympic Village and the Seawall. The building allows one pet (cat or dog) and unrestricted rentals.
The building has some interesting floor plans, some with 2 level lofts. It’s primarily 1 bedroom units (under 700 sqft) though it does have some larger unit as well. The units don’t have individual balconies, though there is a great, common rooftop patio with incredible, unobstructed views of the mountains and city. The building only has two parking stalls (for the larger units), so most units won’t have a parking stall, though there are storage lockers and a bike room.
North facing units in this building have incredible views, while south facing units have unique “Gastown” views. The units have classic loft layouts where the bedroom is not necessarily at a window.
The building currently has two units for sale – a larger two bedroom unit (currently with an accepted offer) and a one bedroom unit. For an up-to-date list of units for sale, see our “favourite building” page for 27 Alexander.
