Conducting an experiment at PortLiving's Midtown

Vancouver’s Mount Pleasant neighbourhood is rapidly becoming the hottest place to live, and developer PortLiving is capitalizing on that popularity with Midtown, a mixed-used low-rise development that will also offer commercial space on the street level.

For the next three months, PortLiving is hosting the Midtown Experiment, where businesses can open a pop-up shop for a week to gauge how popular they will be to local residents.

“The Midtown Experiment is an incredibly positive way to bring life and vibrancy to this emerging area, and to experiment to better know the types of businesses that the community will welcome and frequent,” says Director of Living Midtown Development Robert Vrooman. “We know there will be a lot of demand from retail partners to occupy the space, but we feel it is just as important to listen to the needs of the community.”

Midtown will be situated on Broadway between St. George Street and Carolina Street. The four-storey building will hold one- and two-bedroom condominium homes as well as two three-bedroom concrete townhomes.

Among the beautiful features at Midtown will be private covered patios, oversized windows, engineered hardwood floors and elegant quartz countertops complemented by a glass tile backsplash in the kitchen. The bathrooms feature in-floor radiant electric heating and glass accent tiles in the bathtub and shower surrounds.

Curb appeal is never in short supply at Midtown, with its brick-clad exterior and communal elevated courtyard, perfect for visiting with your neighbours.
