Some Photos From The Shangri-la Penthouse

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.

  1. They look amazing! What were you doing checking them out John? Considering buying one?

    1. John Chow says:

      No, I like living in West Vancouver. I do have a friends who live at the Shangri-la. It’s a nice tower but if I were to buy a place in downtown Vancouver, it would be at the Estates at the Fairmont Pacific Rim.

      1. Rick Krenz says:

        Are the Estates even done? From the looks of the one picture… It still looks like it is under construction… Then again I don’t know the age of these photos

        1. John Chow says:

          The Estates are done and most units are sold. I think the penthouse got sold during the Olympics for $22 million!

          1. A few of those shots look like the ones my mother took. She was the appraiser who appraised that unit for the bank.

  2. You weren’t the anonymous buyer, were you John?

    1. John Chow says:

      No, I don’t know who the buyer is.

  3. S Ahsan says:

    Now this is sweeeet!! 😀

  4. What is the worth of these properties john?

    1. John Chow says:

      $17.3 million if you read the post! And why are you making 3 comments to the same post? Couldn’t you have just said everything in one?

  5. possibly I may have to blog and make money online to go for the 606sqft property..))

  6. Diabetis says:

    Great shot John!

    1. John Chow says:

      Thanks but I didn’t take those photos.

      1. Yes that’s why this one is not looking professional photos … lollzz 😀

  7. I better start saving my AdSence pennies if I ever want that one with the bad view!

    1. John Chow says:

      Come on now. You don’t want the one with the bad view. Move up at least above the 40th floor. Then nothing will block you.

      1. fas says:

        Adsense wont help you get there, you need to be a super affiliate.

        1. With adsense you can enjoy your normal life but to enjoy the luxury life you will have to think bigger.

  8. Paolo Volpi says:

    Beautiful pictures and a beautiful view! Except with that kind of money I’d build a custom designed home in the burbs.

    1. John Chow says:

      You can build a really nice home on A LOT of land for $17.3 million!

  9. Tim Paulino says:

    What are the property taxes for a $17 million pad in Vancouver?

    1. John Chow says:

      I believe it’s around $50,000 a year, which is slightly more than the condo fee.

      1. Sounds to me like $50,000 in condo fees is a bit of a markup!

        Judging by the amount of space in that building they are making millions each year just on condo fees 🙂

  10. Wow! I thought your view from your home was spectacular, John, but this does beat it (but not by too much, depending on personal preference….heheheh)

    I would love to see the view when the mist rolls in. It must make for an eerie landscape.

  11. Nice pics and nice view
    Even better picture is the one on the homepage of the hotel itself (see link at the top of John’s post).

    I think liviing in a place like that requires you like clouds and have a big supply of pills against motion sickness (whether it is caused by the tower swinging in heavy weather or from the express elevator).

  12. Its looking like you are seating at the top.

    Amazing view and I am sure night view will be more attractive and refreshing one.

  13. I am sure having bath at top of Vancouver will be amazing feeling.

    Oh boy I would love to spend my night at there …

    1. Did you realize that when you are in the bathtub, you have to sit quite upright to see anything else than the sky?

  14. dining table says:

    Mind boggling stuff….~$50k in taxes and another $50k+/- in condo fees = annual fees greater than the value of many homes in small towns in the US and Canada.

    1. I recently saw a house in Ft Lauderdale FL that had annual taxes of $225,000.

  15. $17.3 million, that’s serious change.

  16. At $17 million, with $5 million down, the monthly mortgage is $72,000. At this point the taxes and condo fee don’t even add up to the cost of running your cars – the Aston DB9 and Rapide combo. meh
    Its the mistresses that can cost you real cash!

  17. Wow, it seems a real penthouse we have here.

  18. these pics are amazing. Its really a skyscraper….. touching skies…. really wonderful.

  19. Nice pics and very beautiful view. Technologies used these days are really amazing. Its doing wonders all over the world. Nice post.

  20. Warren says:

    Funny, but the best part of the whole place to me has to be the outside!!! 🙂

    I could certainly handle working from THAT deck dangling my feet in the water, and glancing out at the Ocean!


    Ps. John, I found your site two weeks ago. I try to visit it daily, and I’ve since started my own new blog and set a (modest by your standards I’m sure) goal of replacing my offline income with an online one by Dec, 31, 2010.

    I’ll keep you posted, but wanted to say thanks!

  21. whoops.. really big one.. how much does it cost for one floor.
