A penthouse at Vancouver House was listed for C$11.9 million (about US$9.3 million) at the end of last month.
The triplex penthouse at the luxury skyscraper designed by starchitect Bjarke Ingels in Vancouver’s Yaletown neighborhood has 2,334 square feet of indoor living space with two bedrooms, two full bathrooms and one half bathroom, a spacious entertaining area and a kitchen featuring the custom Bjarke Ingels-designed center island.
It is the third most expensive condo currently listed in the Greater Vancouver Area, according to MLS data.
Outdoor space, which is almost the same size as interior space, includes five patios and a private rooftop deck with a hot tub and an outdoor kitchen.
The penthouse boasts unobstructed views of Granville Island and False Creek. There is also a private elevator serving all three floors.
The penthouse comes with two-car parking, extra storage space and a grand piano, according to Vancouver Courier, which first reported the listing.
The 150-meter-tall (492-foot-tall) building, is known as “Twisted Tower” for its contorted exterior. To work with the difficult site, trisected by the Granville overpass, the tower is set back 30 meters (98 feet) from the highway at its base and twists above the road as it ascends, according to a statement from the starchitect’s eponymous firm, Bjarke Ingels Group.
The proposed project won the title of “Future Project of the Year 2015” at the World Architecture Festival.
The tower is slated to be completed in 2019. Planned communal amenities include concierge services by Fairmont Pacific Rim and a wellness center with a swimming pool.
The building’s developer, Westbank Corp., as well as listing agent of the penthouse, Karim Virani of Virani Real Estate Advisors, didn’t respond to requests for comment in time for publication.
