For more than 50 years, Zen Properties has been dedicated to providing safe and affordable housing for residents of Metro Vancouver. Today, Zen Properties owns approximately 3,500 rental suites in Vancouver, Burnaby and other areas of the Lower Mainland, which are maintained by on site managers backed up by a dedicated group of tradespeople who manage repairs and maintenance.
Zen Properties specializes in converting older buildings into contemporary market housing in strategic areas of downtown Vancouver and in the Lower Mainland. A recent conversion example is 40 Powell Street, which was an aging office building in Gastown that was in need of upgrading. Zen Properties construction arm is currently completing a complete makeover of the building to provide market housing for new owners to live in the desirable downtown location.The street level space will be converted to retail, with plans to be occupied by Lululemon’s newest Gastown store.
