Sustainable, modern living in Vancouver's urban core

Why Rent From Us?

Giving Back

The Gordon Nelson Give Back Program is an initiative aimed at connecting tenants with their community by encouraging involvement in local organisations in need of support. Gordon Nelson has chosen four organisations; Gordon Neighbourhood House, West End Senior Network, First Baptist Church Shelter and West End–Coal Harbour Community Policing Centre. These organisations are working in different ways to help make the West End a better place to live. A rent reduction of up to $150 per year is available to all tenants who participate.

To participate in the program tenants select an organisation to volunteer with for a minimum of two hours once every four months. Tenants are required to submit an online form (include link) and one photo (“selfie”) of them participating in the event. Once sent to Gordon Nelson and verified, the qualified tenant will receive a $50 reduction in their following months rent. Total annual reductions may not exceed $150 per unit. (Please note Gordon Nelson will have the right to use the photo to promote the tenants involvement in the program). Please click here for the online form.

Amazing Apartments

All of our buildings possess something special, whether it be the beautiful renovations, pet friendly units or great location, our building offer something that appeals to our tenants. The renovated and refurbished unit designs are the result of a collaborative effort from our architects at Stuart Howard Architects and designers at Sublime Interior Design.

Pet Friendly Buildings

Many tenants are happy to know that we are one of the few buildings in the West End to allow not just cats but dogs as well. Pets are apart of many families and we welcome them accordingly.

Our Buildings Are Walking Distance To Nearly Everything

We are proud to state that all of our buildings are in locations considered a “Walkers’ Paradise”, if you do not believe us, check out the Walk Score™ maps on our apartment and vacancy pages. Our buildings score right along side Manhattan neighborhoods: Tribeca, SoHo, Little Italy and Greenich Village and San Francisco neighborhoods: Russian Hill, Nob Hill, Mission and Chinatown.

Amenities such as parks, beaches, shopping, entertainment, rapid transit, hospitals, schools and the downtown financial district are all within minutes of our buildings. The West End, in our humble opinion, is one of the great neighborhoods in the world. Where else in the world can you find a 1,000 acre park and miles of sandy beaches literally within 15 minutes walk?
