The big sell: One of Vancouver’s most distinguishable buildings is the Shangri-La, which rises 62 floors in the heart of the downtown core. Sweeping 270-degree vistas that pan from the North Shore Mountains to UBC are showcased from the north-southwest aspect of this air-conditioned two-bedroom corner suite on the 36th floor. The interior has American walnut engineered flooring, Miele, Sub-Zero and Bosch appliances, a granite kitchen island with double sinks and breakfast bar, an integrated touchpad audio-visual system, custom fireplaces in both the living room and master bedroom, and luxurious bathrooms. In addition, there is a corner balcony and two parking stalls. The home was also offered fully furnished, which could provide a turnkey investment opportunity. Residents of the Shangri-La have access to the hotel’s amenities, including a fitness centre and outdoor infinity pool.
