The Lumiére Uses Contrasts to Provide the Perfect Blend for Your Urban Living…

Thursday, June 21st, 2001


Stylish contrasts: The interior finishes found in the residences and city homes at the Lumiére at Stanley Park display the building’s unique design theme which contrasts western and eastern cultures.

They say that opposites attract? Proof of that is the Lumiére, an elegant tower and cityhome development taking shape west of Denman Street, right in the heart of Vancouver’s emerging Coal Harbour/Stanley Park neighbourhood.

Merely steps away from the natural splendor of Stanley Park and the vibrant downtown core of Vancouver, it strikes a fine balance of design and location.

But perhaps what best represents the building’s design theme is the fact it successfully manages to marry East with West.

From the Japanese maple and boxwood hedge landscaping on the ground floor, to the clean-edged lines and romantic vistas found in each residence, you will see why there is no other development like it in the city.

At night, the building will be dramatically lit with cobalt lights from top to bottom, which when combined with the reflective pools on the ground level, will lend the tower the appearance of a floating lantern.

Inside the 18-storey tower there are a mere 66 residences, making each floor home to only four units, each with a corner view of either the dazzling cityscape of downtown Vancouver or the spectacular natural setting of Stanley Park and the North Shore mountains.

The Lumiére also has four well-appointed city homes for those who want to fulfill the dream of having an urban residence.

The city homes feature three levels of living and contain 1,490 – 1,505 square-feet of space and are priced between $685,000 to $705,000.

Tower residences feature 885 to 2,361 square feet, with prices ranging from $291,000 to $1.24 million for suites and penthouses. And for a limited time, the prices include net GST.

In keeping with the building’s theme of light, each home in the tower is provided with floor-to-ceiling windows that allow the outside to be brought right into your home. Impressive eight-foot-high ceilings also add to the feeling of spaciousness.

All suites have balconies, and some are even graced with enclosed solariums for year-round enjoyment. But if the sunshine is too much ,you can always cool things down with built-in air conditioning that is provided for each home.

All of the living spaces are covered with unique, decorative and hardwearing bamboo flooring.

For the gourmet chef in you household, the kitchens at the Lumiére are outfitted with high-quality stainless steel appliances and natural gas ranges. The countertops are surfaced in rich polished granite, and the maple wood cabinets are finished in an exclusive and rich claret stain that adds warmth to your home.

The bathrooms are no less dramatic and more akin to the luxuries found in spas with fine hand-set marble floors, exotic hardwood vanities, and free-standing tubs that are perfect for sharing.

As for amenities, the building has a concierge to take care of your needs, plus a fully-equipped exercise room, lounge, library, billiards tables, and men’s and ladies’ steam rooms for the perfect end to a long day.

Meanwhile, a state-of-the-art security system provides residents with confidence by restricting access to your floor in the tower.

That means your home is indeed your private refuge. To see first-hand if this perfect blend of styles is to your liking you can visit the Lumiére’s presentation centre, open daily, 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. at 683 Denman St. Parking is free.

Inside you will find a detailed model of the building vignette scenes of the kitchens and bathrooms, plus floor view from the tower suites.
