CROSSTOWN #4-1 550 Beatty St - "550 Beatty St"- This was Vancouver's 1st residential loft conversion building, re-developed in 1985. Being 25 years old the interiors are pretty dated, but the building is in good condition. This large two level loft offers 1276 sq.ft. and with a parking stall. This may be higher on your budget, but also offers a lot of potential if you thought of a renovation. Highly upgraded units go for a premium in this place. It is currently listed at $669,000 but has been on the market for 112 days. Its worth closer to the lower-mid $600k's. Listed by Coldwell Banker Premier Realty.
#204 546 Beatty St - "Crane Building" - This a 2008 heritage conversion building with pretty raw spaces including concrete floors, brick walls, and open layouts.

It has 769 sq.ft. on one level, a secured parking stall, restored character windows, white polished concrete floors, high 9'+ high ceilings, and a relatively open plan. It is located along Beatty St just up from Pender St and will be quieter than your area and many spots of Gastown. Listed at $469,900 by One Percent Realty Ltd.
GASTOWN #210 36 Water St - "Terminus"- Terminus is a very cool chic modernist building. These are open concept loft style condos with ultra-clean seamless lines located in the better part of Gastown. The attention to design, architecture, and detail is beautiful. The building features a restored facade keeping the character look on the street but very modern linear floor plans on the inside. This unit has 900 sq.ft. parking, and great design. This is a high recommendation. Water St is certainly the better spot to be in Gastown. Listed at $555,000 by Sutton Grp-West Coast Realty.
#213 55 E Cordova - "Koret Lofts"- If you are open to Gastown, this is a very cool suite, and as far East as you want to go, for a great price and it includes parking.
