3 / 5 Okay
I'm not sure how this had not been mentioned in previous reviews, but,
while the condo itself fits the owner's description, it should be noted that the unit is located in quite a dangerous area.
Be aware that, while the building itself is secure, as described in the listing, homeless people and junkies are scattered all around the building's surrounding areas. Even though the building is not located in the Abbots to Main St defined to be Vancouver's "Downtown Eastside," which is known to be dangerous, homeless people and junkies congregate all along W Cordova St, the plaza underneath the building, the adjacent Victory Square park, the walkway next to the building, right in front of the building entrance—everywhere. Even during the day, it feels very unsafe to walk down the street, let alone at night.
We were not aware of this upon booking the condo and was unpleasantly surprised by the neighborhood. Would not recommend it.
Aside from its subpar location, the condo is very nice.
