Looking for a condo? Looking for a condo previously owned by Axl Rose? This could be the one for you!
Vancouverites may be getting used to house prices that break the $1-million mark, but a new condo listed this week proves that the sky’s the limit when it comes to luxury living. The penthouse apartment at 1000 Beach Ave. is on the market for a cool $18.2-million.
Situated downtown at the northeast corner of the Burrard Bridge, right on the Seawall, the property has never been lived in – former owners reportedly include Axl Rose, front man for rock group Guns N’ Roses, and the Russian Rocket himself, Canucks star Pavel Bure. Until the current owner, a low-profile, White Rock-based businessman, took possession in 2004 (for an estimated $7-million), it was an empty concrete shell. Nevertheless, it’s proved a remarkable investment.
