By now you’ve probably heard of The Smithe. Coming this fall — by Boffo. On the cusp of Yaletown — it brings the entertainment and arts district together.

Sitting at the corner of Smithe & Cambie, this unique development offers 2 & 3 bedroom residences for just 91 homes including seven Penthouse residences w/ private rooftop decks that will overlook the city. The location is truly a unique offering and one of the few remaining in this part of the city. Please call me for a private viewing of The Smithe.

This whole neighborhood’s re-development is close to my heart and incredibly exciting for me to see. It is where I grew up, went to school and it is now starting a complete transformation! Shape Properties will transform over 40 acres, including 23 new high rise towers, new shopping, restaurants and community-oriented neighbourhoods to come. It is also home to the most connected SkyTrain hub in Metro Vancouver. Prices starting at $349k.
Minutes from Simon Fraser University, and steps to where the Millennium and Evergreen SkyTrain lines meet, this location is central and features lush green spaces. Local shops and restaurants will be found throughout and be within walking distance of all the main towers. Please call me for a private viewing of The City of Lougheed’s presentation centre and designer show homes.

SkyLounge is certainly one of the highlights at 8X on the park, where the penthouse is reserved for everyone. It includes a spacious rooftop patio, a theatre, a social gathering place and a place to sweat—the SkyFitness Centre.
Downtown living has so much to offer. And now it has even more with Brenhill's newest development. Sustainable design, naturally lit open spaces and luxury finishings make 8X On The Park one of the best.

Vancouver International Jazz Festival
It’s hard to believe but it’s time for the Vancouver International Jazz Festival. It always reminds me that summer is back. If you’ve never taken in a concert, I highly recommend it. There are a number of venues, starting at the cost of free. The first event is on June 24th and the festival runs through July 3rd. Robson Plaza will host the main stage this weekend and next weekend you’ll find the stage at David Lam park in Yaletown. Please say hello if you see me there!
Free Outdoor Movies at Stanley Park
Everyone loves an outdoor movie. And who wouldn’t love to watch a movie in Stanley Park. As the sun sets, the screen lights up in front of everyone resting easy on blankets. It’s a free event. Check the schedule soon, as you won’t want to miss your favourites like The Outsiders, Star Wars and Dirty Dancing. As the summer goes on, sunset falls earlier and earlier so check the start times and get their early to reserve your spot on the grass at Second Beach.

Small Victory is one of my favourite spots to grab a coffee, lunch or a beautiful baked good. From the moment you walk in the door, you’re surrounded by amazing aromas. It really doesn’tmatter what you order, everything is made with careful attention to detail. And I love to bring a friend to Small Victory just to see the pure delight in their eyes when they taste the delectable French pastries. From a perfect latte to the sweet and flaky butter croissants, I haven’t found anything quite like it in Yaletown. I hope you’ll stop in, and then let me know if it’s your new favourite too.

I've yet to experience it myself, however I am hearing fabulous reviews about Kissa Tanto. I’m anticipating that it will be a real gem, considering it is the Japanese-inspired sister restaurant to the Bao Bei Chinese Bistro – one of my all-time favourites in the city. I’m excited to try it. Let me know if you have been, I’d love to get the insider scoop on the best dishes. With descriptions like tomato wakame granita and miso besciamella, I am looking at their online menu and having a hard time imagining paring my order down to a few dishes. Perhaps, it will demand a few visits– you know, to get the full experience.
