Condo of the Week: $475,000 for a summery space on Cambie

Proof you can live in the heart of Vancouver for under half a million

The Cost$475,000 / Property tax: $1,552 / Maintenance fee: $254.69/mo

The Details2004 / 620 sq. ft. / 1 bed, 1 bath / MLS: R2022206

This week’s condo, along the rapidly growing Cambie corridor, has an efficient (if not huge) 620 sq.-ft. floor plan with modern finishes. A large west-facing patio soaks in the afternoon and evening sun, while the outdoor space provides a nice visual extension of the living area, allowing the home to feel much larger than that 620 sq. ft. would lead you to believe. Other fun features include a gas range, wall oven, and built-in wine fridge (!). But the real selling point here may be location, location, location. The 11-year-old Olive building at 16th and Cambie is a short walk to the SkyTrain, shopping, and restaurants—including quite possibly Vancouver’s best, the new Vij’s.


The bright living space, with laminate floors and an electric fireplace.


The kitchen includes a gas range, wall oven, and wine fridge. A decent amount of counter space, as well.


The west-facing deck is private, sunny, and spacious. Great for reading alone or entertaining with friends. This is where you’d spend your summers.
