Home in the Heart of Chinatown
In the heart of Chinatown is an exclusive opportunity that reflects the past, present, and future of Chinatown. Consisting of ground floor retail, office space, and 25 stunning strata residences in a boutique building, Sparrow Chinatown is built with forward-thinking design to maximize space and convenience. Like a lantern in Dr. Sun Yat-sen Garden, each landscaped roof space is illuminated by the homes surrounding it.
Once a cultural ghetto for Vancouver’s Chinese community, Chinatown’s revitalization is attracting a multicultural group of people to live and work in the neighbourhood, drawn to its special historical character. Far from being isolated, residents are in close proximity to a broad range of cafes, restaurants, pubs, and lounges within Chinatown, in Crosstown to the west, and Gastown to the north. Major sporting events in Rogers Arena and BC Place stadium are just a stroll away, as is seeing the latest blockbusters at Tinseltown’s theatres. Excellent transit connections make it convenient to reach other parts of the city by bus or rapid transit. Once the viaducts to the south are removed, expect a much improved pedestrian connection to False Creek and even greater neighbourhood vitality from new residences planned for the shoreside.
