The big sell: Freshly constructed condo developments are always popular with homebuyers, who crave being the first occupants, and The Beasley in downtown Vancouver’s Yaletown district was no exception. No sooner had this unit hit the market than it attracted multiple offers, with the winning bid coming in above the asking price on the first day. The appeal? Engineered walnut hardwood floors in the main living area, carpeting in the bedroom and den, heated tiles in the bathroom, and a kitchen with a KitchenAid appliance package, stone countertops and an undermount sink. As well, it includes west-facing city views from the large balcony, and an on-site gym, concierge and party room. The project is pet-friendly, and even has a dog-walking floor. The tower is on the corner of Smithe and Homer and was built to keep the heritage building below it intact.
