Building Info

Electra - 989 Nelson Street, Vancouver, BC V6Z 2S1, Strata Plan No. LMS1866, 21 Levels, 242 Units, Built 1995. Located at the corner of Burrard and Nelson in Vancouver's downtown core, Electra is a solid heritage class building built in 1957 (formerly the BC Hydro headquarters) converted into strata units in 1995. Designed by award-winning Paul Merrick Architects, the building has been completely redesigned from inside out to create the unique residential conversion. Its memorable elongated diamond shape is a classic example of modernist architecture that has formed an integral part of the Vancouver urban profile for over 35 years.

Rising majestically 21 storeys, residents of Electra will enjoy a private drive off the street, a covered colonnade into the building and an unusually spacious grand entrance. As well, expansive elevator lobbies provide an elegant sense of arrival at
each floor. The building is one of just a few residential towers in Vancouver to offer air conditioning and three high-speed elevators designed for commercial use. The Electra's shallow distance from core to exterior wall creates suite layouts that
offer much wider panoramic views and - more window-space per square foot of suite area compared to conventional "deep-core" residences. Exceptional privacy is created by the placement of entry doors on only one side of the corridor with storage and laundry facilities conveniently located across from the suites. As a result of the new exterior glazing, suites will feature expanded window's enhancing magnificent views in all directions.

Residents of 989 Nelson also enjoy access to The Electra's Fitness Club, a private clubhouse featuring dry saunas, showers, and lockers, a billiards lounge, theater room, table tennis room, party room with full kitchen, outside patio with BBQ area.

The Electra's central location puts residents within walking distance of everything Vancouver's unique " downtown lifestyle has to offer. It's an easy stroll to work in the financial district after a morning run along the seawall. Or just a few steps to
the international boutiques along Robson and Burrard on the way home. For an impromptu dinner with friends, catch the aquabus to Granville Island for fresh food shopping at the public market. Select from fine restaurants along the downtown waterfronts or enjoy the many " casual cafes, coffee bars and pasta spots nearby on Robson. From the Electra, shopping at Pacific Centre a show at the Art Gallery, an evening of live theatre or miles of waterfront walkways and forest trails are all so close, you'll be wishing that you could have made this move sooner.
