2 Burrard Place offers uber-chic style and myriad upscale touches
Vancouver Sun Excerpt
Oct 8, 2021

You won’t find it in a dictionary, yet it’s a word that’s been bandied about frequently in the presentation centre for the 36-storey 2 Burrard Place project: Euroluxe.

It’s a term coined by Magnum Projects’ managing director Lily Korstanje as a means of referencing some of the luxurious mood-setting touches inspired by some of the world’s most fashion-forward places.

“Say you go to Milan, and you walk those tiny streets and stumble into a little boutique hotel with maybe only six rooms,” Korstanje says, “[You might find] original oil paintings, different linens that are yummy, toiletries you might almost want to eat, lighting that’s so ambient and calibrated and curated to achieve an end goal of cosiness.”

It is, Korstanje adds, a word that speaks perfectly to the look and feel of the residences at 2 Burrard Place, the third component of Burrard Place, an undertaking from Reliance Properties and Jim Pattison Developments at the north end of the Burrard Street Bridge, but a walk away from Stanley Park, Robson Street, English Bay and the city’s arts and entertainment district. Earlier components in the development, which takes a full city block bounded by Burrard, Hornby, Drake and Davie, comprise The Offices at Burrard Place, and the soaring 54-storey One Burrard Place, which Korstanje says is expected to welcome its occupants later this year.

A fourth building, another residential tower, is yet to come.

OPINION: Affordable housing solutions? Look in the mirror
Western Investor Excerpt
Nov 2, 2021

The big annual Canadian Apartment Investment Conference was held September 20 in Toronto, and, as with the stumping politicians in the federal election the same day, affordable housing was a key talking point.

Some of the biggest condo and rental developers in the country bemoaned the lack of housing that Canadians can afford.

...

Condo developers from downtown to the outer suburbs are creating the most luxurious apartments and lavish amenities that have ever hit the mainstream market.

Former deluxe features have become standard spec in a competitive market.

Burrard Place in Vancouver boasts custom Italian interiors where, with the touch of a button, residences can summon a private chef, a sommelier, a personal trainer, even an on-call musician. There is a huge pool, hot tub, a sauna, a gym, a yoga studio, a multimedia room and a rooftop garden.
