41 Alexander Street
The Captain French is located in Gastown at 41 Alexander Street. Like Gastown itself, the heritage Vancouver lofts are a part of local history.
The Gastown building in Vancouver east is named after its first owner, tugboat captain George French. The warehouse building was built in Vancouver during the booming lumber era of the twentieth century. In 1991, the commercial building was transformed into residential Gastown apartments for sale by Paul Merrick Architects. This loft building is definitely a symbol in Gastown/East Vancouver real estate.
Each of the 20 units in the Captain French feature:
- solid, exposed brick walls,
- high ceilings,
- stainless steel countertops,
- massive old-growth cedar beams,
- and plank ceilings throughout.
Northside lofts offer stunning 180 degree mountain and ocean views of the North Shore and harbour. There is also a rooftop deck for summer-time entertaining and lounging.
Nearby transit includes the Waterfront Skytrain station, the SeaBus, and multiple bus routes. Not that you’ll need them to get to the dozens of restaurants and shops located just outside the Captain French’s doors!
The Captain French allows pets and rentals, with restrictions.
