News Release

Gordon Nelson Acquires 1540 Haro Street

Vancouver, B.C., February 2012 – Gordon Nelson Inc. (“Gordon Nelson”), an owner of several West End apartment buildings and Ocean Village, a resort in Tofino, BC, is pleased to announce the acquisition of a 28 unit rental apartment building located at 1540 Haro Street.  “We were presented with a time sensitive opportunity to acquire a building in a synergist location,” says Jason Gordon.

Built in 1952, 1540 Haro Street presents an opportunity to execute on Gordon Nelson’s vision to modernize well-located rental properties.  “With four other rental properties in the West End, 1540 Haro, made a lot of sense for us to acquire,” adds Chris Nelson.

This building is nearly identical to Gordon Nelson’s 1133 Barclay Street building.  Excess laundry and boiler room space as well as unusable parking areas present an opportunity to work with the City of Vancouver to add additional units.

1540 Haro Street offers studio, one and two bedroom units for rent.
