Life Happens in Colour
Grafia by Porte Homes is a new community of 122 condominiums located off Nanaimo Street in East Vancouver’s Grandview-Woodland neighbourhood. It consists of a 6-storey, mixed-use building facing Broadway with retail units on the ground floor and a 6-storey residential building to the north. From studios to 3-bedroom homes, expect smoother layouts, larger living spaces, kitchens with style and functionality, and smart technology to ease everyday life. Amenities enhance lifestyles of all kinds — from fitness lovers to first-time gardeners to work-from-home types.
Where you live is just as important as how you live. Families will appreciate the closeness of Laura Secord Elementary and Van Tech Secondary schools. Trout Lake with its community centre, skating rink, popular farmers market, and off-leash dog area is just a 5-minute bike ride away. A bus stop with frequent transit service just steps from your front door will deliver you in minutes to the myriad restaurants, shops, and services on vibrant Commercial Drive, or connect to SkyTrain and be Downtown in less than 20 minutes. But with Bon’s Off Broadway, Boteco Brasil, Ruka Coffee, and Yook Korean just around the corner, you may just hang out in the hood. Grafia is a home and community where your personality can thrive.
