a Unique Heritage Jewel in the Heart of Vancouver’s West End – 1523 Davie Street, Downtown Vancouver, British Columbia

CBRE Limited is pleased to present the unique opportunity to acquire Gabriola, a famous Class “A” heritage mansion on a half-acre lot in the vibrant West End, Vancouver’s most densely populated neighbourhood.

The West End is home to almost 45,000 people in just over two square kilometers and is known as one of the trendiest areas in the Downtown peninsula.  The convenient location provides easy access to Davie and Denman Villages, English Bay, and the City’s financial core.  A long-term community plan was recently approved for the West End, which includes increased densification to accommodate the anticipated 20% population growth over the next 20 years.  $600 million will be invested in the neighbourhood to upgrade community services.

The stately mansion was originally built in 1900 as a family home for B.T. Rogers of Rogers Sugar.  The building is 17,327 square feet (approx.) spread over four storeys and includes a number of unique architectural and design features – masonry chimneys, stained glass windows, a carved terra cotta fireplace, and exterior walls clad in limestone quarried from Gabriola Island.  The Property enjoys almost 200 feet of frontage along Davie Street, views down to English Bay, and 26 reserved parking stalls.

The building was completely renovated in 1979.  The exterior was preserved, and appears almost exactly as it did in 1900.  The high ceilings, open floor plan and unique heritage appeal provides wide flexibility for future uses, such as hospitality, restaurant, office, dwelling, retail and more.

If you have interest in this Offering and would like to receive additional information and arrange a tour of the Property, please contact Joe O’Brien at 604-662-5124 or joseph.obrien@cbre.com
