Gair Williamson Architects and Boffo Properties know this neighbourhood well.
Both of their offices are nearby, which means the whole team bikes, walks and drives these streets every day. They know exactly how they’d want to live here, and what kind of homes would best fit this location.
That’s why Cordovan’s design is solid and timeless, an asset to the community that looks as though it’s been here all along. A rich concrete exterior fuses with crisp glass and steel accents to create one-bedroom flats and two-bedroom cityhomes with a distinctly urban feel.
For deep breaths of fresh air or some post-work socializing, you need an outside space that’s easy to get to. At Cordovan, homeowners can just walk outside to their communal courtyard and sit on comfortable vintage benches alongside a collection of Swedish Aspen trees.
Cityhome owners can also access their own lushly landscaped rooftop deck (ones that are carefully contained so they’re safe for pets). During the day, this becomes a quiet spot to get sun on your shoulders or to raise a pint with friends. Then at night, watch the city transform as lights near and far sparkle away.
Access your flat or cityhome through your own front door that faces a green courtyard. Open it along with your windows and get a nice, full cross breeze.
Overheight ceilings in most homes are a good start. Clean lines and a well-designed kitchen also mean this home performs like it’s much larger.
Modern appliances and polished Caesarstone countertops add sheen and style. There’s also the slickest matte black backsplash you’ve ever laid eyes on.
Choose how you want to use this bonus flex space: as a computer station, a pantry for Costco runs or as a beer/gear hideaway.
Sunlight streams in through the window wall, making everything pleasantly bright. Two bedroom cityhomes also have their own rooftop decks.
From elegant roller shades and a wall-mounted powder room sink to the soft glow of task lighting, nice touches are everywhere.

Railtown: Hang with the finest minds in architecture and design who've set up shop here - and eat at the new places popping up all over.
The Drive: It rivals Main Street for the city's best espresso but walks away with the title of Best Italian Eats in the city.
Strathcona & Chinatown: An enviable neighbourhood [and the oldest!] in Vancouver. Stop by Union Market for fresh baked deliciousness.
Gastown & Downtown: The beautifully lamplit part of town whose historic streets lead to the city's business core.
Great neighbourhoods evolve over time. They morph and grow and mature until they end up with an eclectic mix of things going on and a whole crop of people who wouldn’t live anywhere else. That’s what’s happening in East Van right now. That’s why it’s so alive.
With our offices in the same neck of the woods as Cordovan, the Boffo team has driven by this spot many times. Many times. We saw the promise here, and we know that bringing quality-built, modern homes to this specific pocket is the right move.
We’ll be part of the area’s ongoing transformation and, if you buy a home here, so will you. Not only will you be in the middle of Vancouver’s business and entertainment districts, you’ll be living in a bright, affordable space built by people who are as passionate about great homes as they are about great neighbourhoods.
