1241 Homer: Yaletown

by Susan Kerschbaumer

A morning of yoga. Brunch at the marinaside. A late-night bite at a restaurant. All within walking distance. That’s life in Yaletown.

Townline has long appreciated the benefits of living in this unique urban neighbourhood. Our residential and commercial projects in Yaletown speak to the area’s history, all while creating a very modern, very desirable, very liveable downtown lifestyle.

Since 1999, Townline has been restoring, transforming and creating unique spaces in Yaletown. 1190 Homer was the first: a commercial building with commanding streetfront presence, with shops, restaurants and offices, including The Cross (see sidebar) and The Cactus Club. Next was 1180 Homer – a collection of 15 one-of-a-kind loft residences – and home to the city’s first residential car elevator. Then came 1168 Richards – a parkside, new construction boutique building and the recipient of multiple awards – including an Urban Development Institute Award for best midrise development.

We feel it’s safe to say that when it comes to boutique buildings in Yaletown, Townline has been around the block.

Jumping to present day, Townline is offering something more yet again. Something more is 1241 Homer – sister building to 1168 Richards. 1241 Homer is a newly-completed boutique building of 12 high-style homes with just two suites per floor. Homes are generous in proportion and heritage-inspired – with high ceilings and airy interiors. The suites, though, don’t limit themselves to indoor space; expansive terraces and Townline’s signature overhead garage-door-style window walls mean unconfined space – and rare outdoor living in the heart of the city.

Interior features include: exposed brick stretching up to double-height ceilings; sleek kitchens with integrated appliances that open up to generous entertaining spaces; ensuite bathrooms with steam showers and radiant in-floor heating. And – at the apex – a private insuite elevator takes penthouse residents to their own personal haven: a gas fireplace-equipped rooftop deck of nearly 800 perfect square feet.

Two display homes at 1241 Homer are available for viewing. Homes are priced from 649,000.
