Mayflower Place

1988 Stephens Street, Vancouver

Multi-family strata development
33 suites + 1 commercial unit



A rare opportunity to acquire the majority part of a strata-titled development consisting of 33 residential suites and one strata-titled commercial unit in a 4-storey wood-frame mixed-use building constructed in 1998.  There are only 4 other strata commercial units which form part of the overall building that are not included in the sale.  It is anticipated an investor would continue operating the building as a single-managed residential rental operation.


Mayflower Place is situated on the northeast corner of West 4th Avenue and Stephens Street in the heart of Vancouver’s prime Kitsilano neighbourhood, only 5 blocks south of Kits Beach. West 4th Avenue offers convenient shopping, amenities, cafes, restaurants and bus transportation (only one block to W 4th and MacDonald bus stops for direct access to UBC and Downtown).

Kitsilano Beach’s coastline offers stunning views of English Bay, the West End’s skyline and the North Shore Mountains. Within walking distance is Kits Beach pool and park, a seaside walkway that overlooks the Burrard Inlet and Kitsilano Yacht Club. The Burrard Bridge is only nine blocks away offering easy access to Downtown Vancouver.  Kitsilano is considered one of the most desirable locations in the City of Vancouver (if not Canada) to live, with its numerous beaches, parks, recreation centres, retail amenities, movie theatre (5th & Burrard), bus transportation, elementary schools, cafes, restaurants and its close proximity to city hospitals, Downtown Vancouver and UBC.
