The Opsal by Bastion Development Corporation at 1775 Quebec Street is a 24-storey condo tower with a total floor space of 180,000 square feet. This is a large residential development in Vancouver’s Olympic Village neighbourhood boasting 165 suites. Adjacent to the Opsal is Bastion’s other condo building, Proximity.
IBI Groups’ Gwyn Vose worked on the architecture for Opsal. Vose is known for involvement in other high-profile Vancouver residential buildings, such as the prestigious One Burrard Place. The southeast corner of Opsal has a “chevron shaped profile” which is intended to give the building a strong presence with an industrial angularity invoking the site’s heritage of industry.
The 165 suites at Opsal are divided into studios, one-bedroom suites, two-bedroom suites and three-bedroom suites. These suites vary in size from 409 sq. ft. to 1953 sq. ft. However, the real value comes in what all these different units have in common.
Homes at Opsal have designer carpet with hardwood and porcelain tile options, along with a custom-stained wood suite entry door. The kitchens have a Bosch range, Fisher Paykel stainless steel refrigerator with bottom freezer granite countertops. Residents can expect overheight 9-feet ceilings and delight in hot water baseboard heating. Most units have a balcony to take in expansive views. Units have in-suite laundry too!
Residents can expect to enjoy amenities such as an exercise and fitness center, a yoga studio, swimming pool, bike room and garden. Adding to this is the nearby Creekside Community Centre which has various facilities and classes for residents of the area to enjoy fitness and leisure. There’s even the opportunity to rent kayaks or paddle boards to enjoy False Creek. If you’re active and looking for a team activity, there’s the Dragon Boats too!
