For home or condo buyers who value a high walk score (proximity on foot to shopping, coffee shops, schools, entertainment etc), this bright, spacious condo complete with sunroom/den at the corner of Venables and Commercial Drive scores a 97 out of 100. Realtor David Roper says nearby amenities — including his favourites Britannia Community Centre, Bump N Grind Cafe, Uprising Breads, Liquids and Solids, Woodland Smokehouse and Commissary, the Cultch and soon-to-be finished York Theatre — and the acceptance of people from all ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds make the Commercial Drive area a unique Vancouver neighbourhood and one of its most interesting. The 2005-built, four-storey, 18-unit building is in keeping with the most common housing stock in Grandview-Woodland, which is low-rise apartments (five storeys or less). Estimated property taxes are $1,410 and monthly strata fees are $301.
