Modern downtown living at Tate on Howe
Artistic downtown living has come to Vancouver with Tate on Howe, a new condominium development from Bonds Group of Companies that offers not only gorgeous one- and two-bedroom homes but also an amazing collection of amenities and a location that can't be easily beat.
"We've just begun offering homes to the public and are very pleased with the response we've received," says Tracy McRae, vice-president of development for Bonds Group of Companies. "Vancouver has a very competitive landscape and well-educated buyers; they know quality when they see it."
The exterior has been designed by Merrick Architecture, and will be a striking part of the Vancouver skyline. The 40-storey tower will maximize water and city views, with huge windows designed to let the light pour in.
"Tate on Howe has been designed to capitalize on the breathtaking views the Vancouver skyline has to offer," McRae says.
Arriving home, you'll find a dramatic porte cochere entrance and a large waterfall, making for a striking experience for both you and your guests.
"Our unique building design turns downtown living into an art form," says McRae. "We are confident the Tate will be seen as a downtown masterpiece."
Inside, you'll find high ceilings (8'6", with 9' on the 34th floor and above) and spacious floorplans designed for comfortable living. The kitchens are fit for any aspiring chef, with imported European cabinetry systems by Eggersmann, chic polished-edge quartz countertops and a dramatic iridescent mosaic tile backsplash. The stainless-steel appliances include a Miele gas cooktop and wall oven.
The luxurious bathrooms hold their own Eggersmann European cabinetry, complemented by quartz countertops and a deep full-size soaker tub. Select homes feature separate showers and his-and-hers sinks in the ensuite.
"Each of our homes pair thoughtful design with artistic flair and will truly be an oasis in the city," McRae says.
Among the thoughtful extras in Tate on Howe are front-load full-size washers and dryers and a secure storage locker for each home.
Homeowners will have access to the Tate Clubhouse, an amenities space that spans over 11,700 square feet and holds a fireside lounge and library with over-height ceilings, social room with a chef's kitchen and formal dining area, fitness facilities, a billiards room, 12-seat surround sound theatre and business facilities such as a meeting room and conference room. There will also a terrace garden on the fifth floor with a water feature and sheltered courtyards.
"Our amenities are second-to-none," says McRae.
Residents will also be part of High Street of the Arts, a 10,000-square-foot art space dedicated to the CIty of Vancouver.
"Featuring four storeys and an open concept design, we are very excited to see how the City uses this space to improve the arts and culture opportunities in the city," says McRae. "This dedication to the arts is a theme throughout Tate on Howe from the luxuriantly designed common areas to the smallest of details."
Tate on Howe is within walking distance to the night life in Yaletown, the shopping and dining on Robson Street, entertainment on Granville Street, and the beaches, marinas and seawall at Stanley Park. You're also close to transit via the Canada Line, so leaving the car behind is easy.
"This is one of the last major projects available in a premium downtown location," says McRae. "There will be few developments in the future that match the size and location of Tate on Howe."
