Tate promises to add artistic flair to neighbourhood 0
Every condo development aims to bring something fresh to a neighbourhood.
Tate on Howe plans on bringing a whole lot of arts and culture.
A working art gallery is designed as a featured amenity when this 41-storey tower arrives at 1265 Howe St. at Drake in the burgeoning downtown south area.
Built by the Bonds Group and designed by Merrick Architecture, Tate on Howe has nearly 12,000 square feet of amenities planned for residents, but the goal of including an art gallery was to make a contribution to the entire neighbourhood.
With prices starting at $268,000, suites will range from junior one bedrooms of 470 square feet all the way up to two-level, 1,800-square-foot penthouses with rooftop patios.
The building will feature curved lines to maximize views, offering clear vistas of English Bay.
When residents aren’t staring out the window at Vancouver’s wonders, they will be treated to kitchens featuring Eggersmann cabinets, Miele appliances, plus integrated fridges and dishwashers by Blomberg. Residents will choose between two contrasting colour schemes, called Dali and Picasso.
Aside from the gallery, amenities will include a gym, yoga room, change rooms and showers, fireside lounge, library, 12-seat private theatre, grand lobby with concierge, covered driveway, meeting rooms, private dining room with catering kitchen and lounge, and private gardens.
Tate on Howe will also feature several commercial tenants, such as boutique shops and a place to get your morning coffee fix.
Completion is expected for late 2016 or early 2017. A grand opening is planned for the end of October and sales will begin shortly. The Tate on Howe sales centre is located at 1265 Howe St. and is open daily, except Fridays, from noon to 5 p.m. To register online, visit tateonhowe.com.
