- Name: Eventide
- Type: Modern Contemporary
- Built: 2018
Setting a new precedent for ultra-luxury living in Vancouver, Eventide is a 4-storey boutique condominium building with three residential strata suites overlooking pristine Ocean views of English Bay. This exclusive, four-story building features three modern contemporary residences, the beach house, the view house and the two-level penthouse.
The building design is seen as a ‘camera’ capturing and framing views south towards the water, with an architectural concrete carapace and glass lenses. These components are protected by large southwest facing balconies diminishing low-angle west sun and deflecting wind off the water. The balconies are augmented by horizontal wood and metal sunshades above level 4 to tackle the south sun at the top level.
Expansive floor-to-ceiling windows provide ample natural light and seamless lines of sight to the ocean views and all units feature modern kitchens Gaggenau and Miele appliances, under-mount Franke stainless steel sinks and Dornbracht fixtures. Bathrooms and ensuites include Dolomite stone and white Corian countertops.
Located at Bute Street and Beach Ave, Eventide homes are not classified as condominiums, but a form of occupancy known as “long-term leasehold” with the developer Deecorp Properties retaining ownership while each of three occupants paying luxury market fees. With unit prices reportedly approaching $16 million, this Vancouver building targeting an elite jet-set class of multi-millionaires and billionaires is the perfect pied-à-terre for the super wealthy.
