The Harwood will be a celebration of understated elegance, in a West End location that’s entering a new era. Brought to life by Vancouver’s finest minds in design and development, The Harwood and it’s neighbouring tower The Thurlow are part of a greater resurgence in the blocks above Beach Avenue – by all accounts the best part of downtown, and historically one of the most sought-after parts of Vancouver. These are homes at a level of design and finish reminiscent of the mansions that first populated this coveted downtown neighbourhood at the turn of the century. The Harwood will be a “tower in the park” downtown above beach.
The downtown west end neighbourhood is truly the best of all worlds: closely connected to the energy of the downtown experience, and standing above one of the most picturesque shorelines on our coast. The Harwood is a quick walk downtown to Robson St., the art gallery, the business district and luxury shopping district, and the best of urban Vancouver, all down leafy West End streets. This is a place where you’ll walk to work all week long, and return, every day, to the timeless beauty of the seawall, the beaches, Stanley Park, and the iconic blocks of the West End.
In this context, this pocket neighbourhood above English Bay offers a rare understated and uniquely Vancouver luxury in the heart of the city. It’s all part of a greater movement in the West End, a new era of urbane elegance, as the city reclaims its chosen neighbourhood.
