There’s never been a shortage of reasons to live in Vancouver’s West End. There’s easy access to beaches and parks, and an abundance of shops and restaurants. But just in case you needed more reasons to move here this spring, we’ve rustled up three more!
Are you craving a stylish new apartment with top-notch appliances and state-of-the-art features? Austeville Properties recently transformed one of the city’s hippest hotels back into a residence. The newly renovated Pacific Palisades towers boast 234 rental suites and common areas, all designed in a clean, modernist style with that extra West Coast flair. So you can enjoy the designer lifestyle you’ve always longed for but without the mortgage worries, maintenance work or monthly strata fees. Sound like bliss, doesn’t it? Contact our Rental Centre
Bright light, white walls, clean spaces: living at PaPa is easy.
PaPa kitchens feature wood-laminate millwork, glass-tile backsplashes, European-style fridge/freezers, dishwashers and lots of cupboard space.
Eating out doesn’t get fresher than a meal at Forage. Located inside the Listel Hotel, this is one of Robson Street's hottest new dining spots for all you food lovers out there. And guess what? Forage is across the street from Pacific Palisades. The restaurant prides itself on using locally, sustainably produced food. Executive Chef Chris Whittaker even provides some of the ingredients himself. He grows his own veggies, catches his own fish and even keeps his own Mason bees for pollinating the plants. For menu options and opening times visit the website.
The innovative and tasty Forage menu includes everything from Dungeness crab cakes and roast bison bone marrow to beet salad and squash pierogies.
Robson Street has always been a favourite shopping destination for Vancouverites. And it just got better! We’ve seen a host of new retailers join the retail community over the past 12 months. Rent at PaPa, and you just have to walk downstairs or up a block or two to visit some of Vancouver’s hippest retailers. Here are just a few of the latest additions that’ll whet your shopping appetite.
Looking for a new cashmere cardigan this spring? American retailer J.Crew opened last August and offers classic wardrobe staples for men, women and kids. The clothes are made using quality fabrics so they’re made to last. Items range anywhere from $60 - $140.
You’re going to need some new designer furniture to match your new designer PaPa apartment. So head down to Robson Street and indulge your design senses at CB2, PAPA’s anchor retail tenant, where you can pick up the best in stylish modern furniture.
Forever 21 opened its doors last November and offers the latest in catwalk fashion at affordable prices. This multi-level, modern store will keep fashionistas happy. Update your spring wardrobes with a pink neon chiffon top for just $12.80 or a pair of cork peeptoe wedges for just $35.
Every month we showcase one of our suites on the PAPA blog. This month we’ve been shouting from the rooftops (well, the 18th floor) about suite 1805. Located in the Alberni Tower, this studio suite offers some of the building’s best south-facing views. With one entire wall of windows, the suite is full of natural light, feels airy and spacious, and did we mention the views? Check out the PaPa blog for more info.
