Rentals at Vancouver House: $3200 for a one bedroom?

The soaring, spectacular Vancouver House tower is nearly complete, and several owners are already hoping to line up renters for their investment units.

The Bjarke Ingels-designed, 52-storey tower was developed by Westbank, and also includes a market rental component, managed by the company, as well as retail including a Fresh Street Market and London Drugs, set to open this February.

There’s also a massive crystal chandelier, installed under the Granville Street Bridge, and part of the project’s public art component.

But in the strata component of the development, several units are already posted for rent, at eye-popping prices.

On the 20th floor, overlooking False Creek and the Granville Street Bridge, is a 606 sq ft. one bedroom “and atelier” — which is really just a fancy word for a den or office. Judging by the photos below, a twin bed in the atelier would be a tight fit.

The rent? $3,200 — parking and storage extra. However, the unit does have two balconies…

On Facebook Marketplace, another Vancouver House strata unit is up for rent, this one also a one bedroom, square footage unknown. It’s $2,800 per month — and includes parking.

If you’re still dead set on living in Vancouver House, just rent from Westbank itself — the company is offering one-bedroom units for $2,675 — which seems like a deal compared to the privately-rented units.

Or walk a few more blocks into Yaletown/Downtown South, where one-bedroom units can be had for $2,100 – $2,300.

There’s little doubt the building is going to be beautiful once complete, just take a look at these photos:
