Tenants have wasted no time moving into the Rediviva, the first apartment building to be completed in The Waterfront Vancouver development.
The building opened less than a week ago and crews continue to install finishing touches in the amenity areas. But residents have already moved into five units and more are arriving daily. The building’s 63 units are 35 percent leased, according to Jim Edwards, Gramor Development’s waterfront project director.
“All these people rented without ever seeing their units (in person),” he said. Instead, they signed up based on detailed renderings of the finished units.
More than half of the new arrivals already live in Vancouver, Edwards says. There’s a mixture of ages, but no children so far — the site seems to be attracting young professionals and retired folks.
“The waterfront views have gone first,” he says.
The building is divided into 36 one-bedroom apartments and 22 two-bedroom units, along with five studio units. All of the apartments feature the same kitchen amenities and quartz countertops, as well as an in-unit washer and dryer. Each unit has its own HVAC system. And every unit except studios includes a balcony.
