Most Expensive Condos In Vancouver (December 2012)

Malcolm Hasman

Another year has nearly squeaked by without a fatal pop to Vancouver's hotly debated real estate bubble. What better way to cap off 2012 — a year of rising home prices— than with a slideshow to showcase some of the priciest luxury condos in Canada.

If your post-holiday pockets are deep, a personal penthouse view of the North Shore mountains through floor-to-ceiling windows can be yours for a cool $28.8 million.

This particular luxury condo hails from the same 1000 block of West Cordova addresses that have effortlessly made previous "most expensive" lists. With only three bedrooms, you'd have to wonder if the walls are lined with gold coins.

If the clout of living in Vancouver's most expensive condo isn't something you're too tickled about, maybe a cheaper six-bedroom, seven-bathroom Yaletown multi-level penthouse at $11.9 million is more your style. Separate summer kitchen included.

Here's a sample of some of Vancouver's most expensive condos:
