Here, heritage loft conversions feature some of the most unique architectural elements of downtown living.  Clustered primarily along Water Street, Powell Street and Alexander Street in Gastown, Beatty Street in Crosstown, and Mainland and Hamilton Streets in Yaletown.

Lofts often include refurbished detailed brick facades, wood casement windows, carved sandstone capitols, original maple hardwood floors, exposed brick and concrete, high 8’9″ and 11′ ceiling heights, honed granite and stone counters,  all these items make up one of my personal favourite real estate products.  But you don’t have to occupy to benefit from these fabulous living spaces & neighbourhoods.

Lofts provide a sound investment for discerning investors with the potential to readily achieve positive cash flow with superior rental income and asset appreciation.  Buyers have to be very sharp to capture the most attractive listings as many of the desirable units sell in a matter of days and more often than not – over the asking price.

Yaletown Heritage lofts

Typical rental rates are < $3 per square foot with a slight premium for furnished suites, parking, communal amenities or some utilities. Buying costs can run anywhere in the region of $625 per sf to around $800 per sf.  After factoring in your purchase price, strata fees, insurance, property taxes & a few minor maintenance repairs – there are still opportunities to generate positive cash flow – especially with a larger down payment to reduce mortgage costs. Many of the heritage conversions were completed in the last 10-12 years and are managed well by progressive strata companies.
