Avedon rises in the heart of south Granville, a neighbourhood deeply rooted in the past, yet undeniably on Canada’s art, culture, fashion, culture, and cuisine. The historic Stanley Theatre is among the neighbourhood’s cultural attractions with a stellar showcase of musicals, Broadway-style dramas and new works by leading local playwrights. A vibrant pedestrian shopping district with distinctly uptown flair, South Granville is home to dozens of exceptional designer boutiques, home décor shops, antique stores, bistros and restaurants. West and Vij’s, two of Vancouver’s top-10 restaurants are in the neighbourhood, as is Meinhardt’s, the city’s premier gourmet market.
Cantilevered balconies of architecturally-framed glass overlook the cityscape and beyond to the mountains and English Bay. Airy roof canopies appear to float above the penthouse level, punctuated by skylights bathing oversized decks with sunlight. Among Avedon’s many distinctions is its beautifully landscaped setting. Almost an acre of greenery surrounds the tower, designed with a nod to century-old Shaughnessy traditions of banquet lawns and secret gardens.
With only four homes per floor, every home at Avedon is a corner home with two distinct points of view. Open Floor plans, airy nine-foot ceilings and soaring glass windows-walls frame the views and suffuse each home with sunlight. Even the most casual of chefs will be inspired to perform in Avedon’s exceedingly well designed kitchens. Extra-wide natural granite slab countertops provide plenty of space for creativity, while professional-calibre appliances are the perfect fusion of form and function.
