From Vancouver's trendy Yaletown neighbourhood to Victoria's Inner Harbour, B.C. has some pretty cool condo projects in the works.

Our friends at real estate magazine TOWER TRIP recently compiled a list of six condo projects that are popping up in the market worth keeping an eye on. Check it out:

  • The Charleson in Yaletown

    Minutes from the core of the city and bordering False Creek, this brand new project seems like rising in the middle of it all. Views on the marinas, mountains and surrounding skylines is what Yaletown is so special about. Since the Expo '86, the neighbourhood has been transformed into one of the most densely populated area in the city. The parks, high rise apartment blocks, and converted heritage buildings constitute one of the most significant urban regeneration projects in North America with still room to breathe.

  • Aperture in Oakridge

    This magnificent small project obviously caught our attention right away. The building exteriors, designed by architect Arno Matis, are inspired by iconic images of stacked timber and respond to the play of light, creating a unique and subtly changing look depending on season, time of day and weather.

    According to the architect:
    “The floor-to-ceiling windows of each home are surrounded by frames – like apertures on a camera – that allow each home to receive maximum sun while minimizing glare, based on its unique positioning relative to the sun throughout the year. In summer months, when the sun is higher in the sky, the frames act as shades, protecting your home and keeping you cool. In the winter, the frames allow direct sunlight – and with it, cozy warmth.”

  • The Janion Micro-Lofts in Victoria
    <a href="http://www.janion2013.com/" target=_blank">The Janion</a>
    Let’s now board the ferry to the The Janion Waterfront Micro-Lofts. This project offers a setting where you can live large every day of the year. The Micro-Loft lifestyle goes beyond four walls and embraces the Inner Harbour and Downtown Victoria as part of your home. Grab your kayak or paddleboard and it’s steps to the water. Go for a stroll and you’re at a café or a boutique. Jump on your bike and you’re at a grocery store or farmer’s market.

  • TRUMP VANCOUVER In The Golden Mile

    The Trump Tower is known for bringing luxury to another level. Located in the Golden Mile district where haute couture shopping , fine dining and entertainment is part of the everyday lifestyle. According to the developer, this is the most luxury project in the entire country and it was the only Canadian development to be ranked in the top 100 in the world by Elite Traveler.

  • The Independent in Mount Pleasant
    <a href="http://independentatmain.com/" target=_blank">The Independent At Main</a>
    Know to be home for a lot of artists and writers, Mount Pleasant has undergone a process of gentrification since the early 1990s, including the area around the Main Street and Broadway intersection that is increasingly becoming known as South Main, or SoMa. The centre of old town has become the energetic epicentre of new town. Vibrant shops, restaurants, cafés and parks are plentiful. The Independent was created with this sense of community in mind, hence the backyard It’s easy to see why this has become one of the most lively and sought-after neighbourhoods in Vancouver.

  • Pacific Point by the Seawall
    <a href="http://pacificpointcondos.com/" target=_blank">Pacific Point Condos</a>
    While Vancouver has the highest price per square foot in Canada, it’s interesting to see a project that optimizes its space as much as The Pacific Point in Yaletown. It is situated adjacent to the seawall and David Lam Park and offers spectacular views of False Creek. We like on the floor plans maximize the space but still feel open on the whole city scenery.
