I found myself on Granville Island last night at dusk, all my camera equipment with me, and some time on my hands. Granville Bridge at NightGranville Island, VancouverGranville Bridge at Night

I just shot this amazing False Creek condo for The open plan space is finished in wood and glass. Mirrors reflect the stunning view, making you feel like you’re part of the outdoors. If you’re tired of playing the housing market, you can sell your place, put your stuff in storage and rent this baby for around $9,000 a month.

Not a bad view

I just completed this shoot last night for Clive Benjafield. It’s a combo townhouse/office on West 8th in the False Creek area. I think this is the best vantage point for views in the city. You can see the densely packed downtown Vancouver core as well as the mountains behind it, and a 180 degree view to boot. And the inside of this place ain’t bad either….

Under the sun

January 30, 2011

Vancouver doesn’t have a lot of great classic architecture, but the Sun Tower on Beatty Street is a rare exception. I recently had an opportunity to shoot a loft in a heritage building, whose rooftop deck is nestled almost directly beneath the landmark. It got me interested in the history of the building, so after many hours of research (well, OK, Wikipedia), I found out that the 82-metre Tower was at one time the tallest building in the British Empire, and that the colour on the roof is painted on, to imitate the patina of copper.

The loft is pretty nice inside too — sort of an electric cowboy update of a 1911 renovated warehouse. Su-Marie Baird has all the info if you’re interested.

Check out the amazing views from this 22nd floor False Creek home from Concord Pacific. Even on an overcast day they are breathtaking. And when you get tired of looking out the window, you can take advantage of the amenities available to homeowners here, consisting of the usual perks like a fitness centre, pool, hot tub, and steam room, as well as a movie theatre, bowling alley, and kayaks. Yes, kayaks! Talk to Lorne Goldman to get all the details on this beautiful home.
