The big sell: Loft 495 is a boutique-style concrete building that consists of seven floors of terraced architecture and large balconies. It was built in 2008 on the corner of Cambie and 6th Avenue with easy access to the Canada Line and the big box stores that have since opened in the area. The interior of this studio unit has 11.5-foot exposed concrete ceilings, stone countertops, a gas cooktop, European-style cabinetry, stainless-steel Bosch and Fisher & Paykel appliances, heated slate tile flooring in the bathroom, a rain shower, ensuite laundry, a walk-in closet and a ladder which leads to an overhead area that has room for bedding. There is a solarium and an open balcony that take advantage of the westerly aspect. The building has a rooftop deck that provides the residents with an entertainment space for barbecues, gardening and lounging while they enjoy panoramic views. Home-based businesses will thrive with the C-3A zoning that allows for live/work combinations.
