Hycroft Towers is one of Vancouver’s significant Modernist landmarks situated on a sloped triangular lot at Granville Street & 16th Avenue on the crest below Shaughnessy. Built in 1952 by Marwell Construction, Semmens & Simpson Architects (Harold Semmens & Douglas Simpson) & Otto Safir Engineer it is comprised of 3 wings, 5 exposures, 8 storeys & 158 suites. From 540 sqft one bedroom suites to 1699 sqft two bedroom & den suites they all offer the original wall to wall Critall windows from Britain, oak floors, efficient design & use of space with built-ins such as floor to ceiling cabinetry, drawers & vanities. The entire north wing features an expansive common rooftop garden & deck with panoramic views of the ocean, city & mountains as well as the Westside of Vancouver & trees of Shaughnessy. There is a strata-owned caretakers suite, interior murals by artist Lionel Thomas, a common laundry room, generous lockers & parking on both mezzanine & ground levels. The South Granville neighbourhood with all its amenities & proximity to Downtown, the Airport & UBC make this a prime location & investment.
Originally marketed in the rental brochure as the ‘Canada’s Largest Apartment House’ when it was built the suites were later strata-titled and sold in 1973. Activity of sales within the building varies from year to year with 8 sales in 2014, 17 in 2015 & 13 in 2016. I have sold in Hycroft Towers for 26 years and represent the majority of the suites that have come for sale in the building over the last 2 decades. I enjoy introducing people to Hycroft Towers for the first time and showing them why it is in my opinion one of the best buildings in Vancouver.
