Coal Harbour  (Vancouver downtown)

On the edge of downtown, bordered by the magnificent views of the north shore mountains, the inlet to Vancouver Harbour and glorious Stanley Park, Coal Harbour is a premier residential district. Newer buildings elegantly placed along the northern shore of the downtown peninsula leading to the Lions Gate bridge and further to North Vancouver and the mountains, this high-end community boasts some of the best views in Vancouver.

Towering over the downtown this stronghold of beautiful, world-class buildings creates a breathtaking sky scape that surrounds a magnificent harbour of sailboats, powerboats and giant yachts. The seawall that is steps from your doorstep brings epic strolls within reach as bands of people revel at the blend of ocean, mountains and forest knitted neatly together to give you the best of all worlds.

Architecture

ibi-three-harbour-green-bc-02

Harbour Green Three is a high-end, high-rise residential building that completes development along the Coal Harbour waterfront in downtown Vancouver. Comprised of a 32-storey tower., the building provides 82 units ranging from 1200 to 4500 sq.ft.; and stretches up to 355 ft. tall. Sited at the junction in between the financial district and Vancouver’s west end, the building provides a visual link between the simple office typology of the financial district (to the east) and the more complex residential developments (to the west).

Fronting seven acres of waterfront park space, the development achieves its architectural excellence in response to this prominent site, as well as an attention to high quality materials and design. The building itself has two ‘personalities’ between the office towers to the east, and the new residential towers to the west. As such, the eastern façade of the building is uniform and minimalist as a pure curtain wall. The west side of the building is more complex, rendered as a series of stone-clad boxes hanging off the building, or ‘sky gardens’.

Interior Design

Features throughout all spaces evoke a sense of high-end luxury living. Vibrant colours, patterns, and textures create a striking first impression. High-quality finishes and furnishings are simplistic, sleek, and complement the detailing throughout.

One notable observation of the market for Habour Green Park over the past few years is the high number of expired and terminated listings relative to solds. These figures suggest that the overall chance of selling a listing at Harbour Green Park is less than 30% – especially if the unit is not sharply priced.  When we look at the ratio of sales to expired/terminated listings across all three towers, Three Harbour Green has an even lower percentage of success. This may be changing.
