The West End — especially west of Denman — is considered Vancouver’s most desirable rental market and known as an established and dynamic neighbourhood located on the periphery of the Downtown Core.  

Oceanside Apartments is extraordinarily well located west of Denman in the heart of Vancouver’s thriving West End, on the north side of Pendrell Street. Denman is a popular pedestrian shopping area considered “the main drag” of the neighbourhood.  Sidewalk cafes, small boutiques, trendy restaurants and bars, bakery shops, all mingle with the regular types of businesses such as banks, grocery stores and hardware stores. Only two short blocks to Davie Street, another popular thoroughfare and close to Robson Street, Vancouver’s pre-eminent high-end shopping destination.  Georgia Street, the financial district of Downtown and Granville Street, the entertainment corridor, is also a few minutes’ walk. The property is also located within walking distance of numerous transit options proving connections to all areas of Metro Vancouver.  Finally, Oceanside Apartment is situated one block to the beaches of the English Bay waterfront and steps to the lush greenery of the world famous thousand-acre Stanley Park.
