Albert Block Studio Apartments
A new opportunity to lease compact modern studios in historic Chinatown, steps from the best of Vancouver's restaurants, sites and conveniences.
Situated mid-block on East Georgia Street between Main Street and Gore, Albert Block studio apartments represent a unique engineering solution to building on this narrow lot. This infill building is a hybrid concrete steel structure. Designed by noted local firm Gair Williamson Architects, these homes will support the regeneration of the neighborhood.
The name of the building is inspired by the spirit of local revitalization: "Albert Block" is a nod to Albert Fok, past Chair of the Chinatown Merchant's Association and President of the Chinatown BIA, a proponent of a pluralist and open, dynamic community that values its heritage while embracing diversity.
Striking views from the rooftop form the backdrop to gardening, barbecuing and socializing with neighbors and friends.
The building has a dedicated Modo car share vehicle (Toyota Prius) and space, as well as secure bike storage for the cycling enthusiast or commuter. This includes a bicycle station for maintenance and a bike wash area. In addition to the bike storage designated for each unit, bike locker space is also available for rent.
