Vancouver, BC

Featured Building: Seastrand

Seastrand's main entrance
West Vancouver has long been a popular site for condominiums and other types of residences. Not only is the area fairly upscale and affluent, but it is also close to the Downtown Core, a neighbourhood that is arguably the centre of Vancouver in every sense of the term but geographical.

As such, over the years many families have flocked there, and as a result more and more residences were needed. Seastrand is one of the many buildings that populate the area, and it serves as an excellent barometer for the kind of living experience one can find in West Vancouver.

Built in 1962, Seastrand is a 16 floor building with 112 units available for both sale and rent.[1] Located by the water, the building has a simple but attractive exterior, and reflects the decade in which it was built quite well.

As expected, the building has a selection of amenities for its residents, all of them geared toward making their lives a little bit easier in the long run. Of course, Seastrand's location may very well be the best amenity it possesses, given its proximity to the water as well as some of Vancouver's most prominent sights and attractions.


The nearby Park Royal Shopping Centre - the north part of the mall is pictured
Located in the Dundarave neighbourhood of West Vancouver, Seastrand finds itself in one of Vancouver's quieter areas. The region has a number of attractions and sights to peruse, with the most prominent example perhaps being Cypress Provincial Park, a park that was used as one of the many venues during the 2010 Winter Olympic Games.

Also of note is Park Royal Shopping Centre, the first shopping mall in Canada and still an establishment that offers some of the city's best shopping. There are also a number of smaller parks scattered around the area, such as Whytecliff Park, a notable destination for avid scuba divers.[2]

Residents of Seastrand will be glad to know that ownership of a vehicle is not a strict necessity; there are many shops and services within easy walking distance, so one does not need to drive in order to make a quick grocery run.
