The Shangri-la is the tallest building in Vancouver. The first 15 floors are occupied by the five star Shangri-la Hotel. Above the 15th floor are 306 residential units, consisting of 234 general live-work homes on floors 16 to 43 and 66 private access residential units on floors 44-60 and two penthouses on floor 61 and 62.
Of the two penthouses in the Shanghri-la, Penthouse 1 was the one to buy. Penthouse 1 offers 5,875 square feet of unparalleled living at the top of Vancouver and features a private lap pool and hot tub, Boffi cabinetry, natural oak hardwood floors in a chevron patter throughout, a private internal elevator, upper and lower master bedroom suites and distributed audio and lighting control systems. It was offered for sale at $17.3 million and was recently sold to an anonymous buyer.
If $17.3 million is too much for your budget, there is a 2,592 square feet two bedroom unit on the 59th floor for sale at $4.18 million. If you’re just looking for a bachelor pad, they have a one bedroom 606 square feet unit on the 19th floor for only $579,900. However, your view will be blocked by the building next door. Here are some photos of the Shangri-la Penthouse for your dreaming pleasure.
