THE CAPER'S BUILDING - View a VIDEO CLIP of this phenomenal penthouse that is grand and gracious in contrast to the extraordinary aesthetic of being in a modern, eco-inspired building.


The two Penthouses are situated on privately accessed floor and that sets the tone that you have arrived to some place special - a condominium without compromise! It is classically chic yet comfortable for all occasions. There are tasteful treatments throughout that can be redefined to blend with most design choices. This includes the dining area which can be romantically intimate or an 18 foot stage for elegant entertaining. The luxuriously large living room has elevated ceilings and awe-inspiring views as it spills out to the lushly landscaped sun deck. Double French doors into the guest bedroom allow for easy spatial alternatives for when it is not in use. The skylit kitchen has cherry cabinets, gorgeous granite counters and stainless steel appliances that are set against a stunning skyline that await you from the breakfast table, (actually all principal rooms have a splendid outlook). This then connects to the enclosed den that offers an additional 50 sf of living space that is also accessible from the massive master bedroom suite. There the walk-in closet will satisfy most women's wish lists and the main bath can only be described as the ultimate dream come true.

The condominium was developed by Harold Kalke, a developer since 1971, and who has been a major proponent of environmentally and socially-aware initiatives. Together with the architectural firm of Hotson Bakker Boniface Haden they created the award winning "Caper's Building". It was one of the first projects to include ground water systems, a central water purifying system, excellent insulation and moisture barriers in the exterior walls. The landmark lower building is comprised of trendy shops and urban services that have made a popular destination for the entire neighbourhood. This particular suite does enjoy the benefits of being geo-thermal heated and air-conditioned (which is included in the monthly strata fee). In addition there are two secured parking stalls and the exclusive use of an oversized storage locker. The Bylaws presently allow two pets and freedom to rent the unit if desired.
