Explore Old City Condos for Sale

Although you would expect Old City real estate to be comprised of heritage-style homes and condos, the community is actually teeming with new condo developments and ones that have been built in the past 10-20 years.

The newest condos on the market have impeccable designs and features that take elegance to a new level. You can expect these condos to incorporate the highest-quality materials, like marble in the bathrooms and heated flooring throughout. Although these high-end features put the condos above and beyond the average, it's the view that steals the show.

The Old City is known for its extraordinary, waterfront condos that have unobstructed views of the harbour. Imagine waking up every morning to look over the glistening water. And so you can make the most out of this view, condos typically boast floor-to-ceiling windows in living spaces.

One of the best parts about condo living is that you have access to all the phenomenal amenities that the building provides. Some of the luxury buildings in the Old City have swimming pools, fitness centers, and common entertainment spaces.

Although many of the condo complexes in this part of town are new to this century, some buildings are from the 1990s or earlier. These condos are the perfect option for those who are buying with a tight budget or want to renovate a condo to their own liking. You can expect these older places to have fantastic bones, with open-concept living spaces and large bedrooms. There are so many upsides to buying in one of these buildings.

Like certain complexes in other parts of Nanaimo, some buildings in the Old City have strata restrictions. So, before buying, make sure your condo building fits your lifestyle.
