Spaces in The Taylor range from 440 SqFt to 1100 SqFt & include Studios, 1 Bedrooms, 2 Bedrooms & Townhomes. The FLOOR PLANS at The Taylor offer a variety of maximized Square Footages & configurations. The Taylor is a concrete high-rise with 3 levels of parking below. Penthouses & Townhomes have their own P1 garage. Visitor parking at The Taylor is also located on the P1 level, on the other side of the floor from the gated resident lot. There is also an abundance of street/meter parking just out front. The Taylor has 2 on-site care takers that keep the building running smoothly. Your management fees (Strata Fees) are kept lower this way than if they housed a full-time concierge. The Taylor has 2 elevators that look after the residents of the building.

The Taylor is nestled in at the edge of the park (Andy Livingstone Park). This is a very unique opportunity for a building, to be park-side in any Downtown core. The Taylor is also 1 block away from the Crosstown Vancouver core which offers shopping, restaurants, bars, movie theatre and many more boutique amenities. 550 Taylor is located at the farthest Western edge of Historic Chinatown. This position allows residents a close & convenient walk to the Historic District. Chinatown Vancouver offers a variety of markets, historic sites & a large variety of culturally diverse amenities & community based points of reference.

The Amenities at The Taylor are very complimentary. You have a small but very usable Gym, located off the lobby on the ground floor. On the other side of the lobby is the lobby lounge, a comfortable meeting place equipped with a number of tables & chairs. Located on the 2nd floor is this beautiful open concept Common roof-top Courtyard. This courtyard has an open-air gazebo, grass field & public garden. This space is also the front entry point to the 2nd level Townhomes of the Taylor & 35 Keefer Place. When in this courtyard you feel like you are away from it all, it is extremely quiet & peaceful. This list of amenities are perfect in my opinion as they are easy to maintain and keep the strata fees low. When you get into amenities involving water (pool & hot tub) strata fees start to quickly climb.
