One is the number for Yaletown luxury 0

By Chris Campbell, 24 hours

In some Vancouver condos, the entrances look more like an afterthought.

These cramped rooms typically have group mailboxes, a poster board for notices and a couple of mismatched pieces of furniture to sit on while waiting for whatever.

When Concord Pacific was planning its 18-storey One Pacific building, the company decided instead to try and knock people’s socks off with its entrance.

The result is a grand lobby design that will repeatedly remind residents they’re in the lap of luxury when they arrive home. That means high ceilings, opulent chandeliers and marble floors. But luxury is not just about design – it’s also about having your needs met when you want them met.

These include a concierge dedicated to making your life easier, and a location on Pacific at Nelson in Yaletown that is one block from everything you need, including shops, Coopers’ Park and the seawall.

One Pacific will also have 45,000 square feet of commercial space, including a 25,000-square-foot fitness club, a restaurant and cafe, as well as plans for an urban market, pharmacy and financial services.

The opulent touches don’t end with the lobby. The ‘Riviera Deck’ will have spa and lounge areas featuring an outdoor heated pool, hot tub, cabanas, steam room, catering kitchen, dining hall, games area and a fire pit. The ‘Sky Garden’ includes a children’s play area and community garden.

One Pacific buyers will be able to customize the interior of their suites, choosing between four different colour palettes. Staircases come with white oak handrails that will be stained to match the flooring that goes with the selected colour scheme. Two different finishing grades let you decide on the countertops and appliances, and the type of marble selected for the flooring and for kitchens and bathrooms.

Suites start at $309,900, with a total of 150 units priced under $350,000. Sizes range from 505 to 1,112 square feet.

The One Pacific sales centre is open to the public each day from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 88 Pacific Blvd. For more information, visit
