Being a West End resident for the last six years, I’ve been watching the gold and brown Pacific Palisades towers undergo a transformation. I don’t cover real estate development often, but it’s been interesting to see the Robson and Jervis based hotel buildings (circa the 1960s) shift into rental properties.

Now owned by Austeville Properties, Pacific Palisades (“PaPa on Robson”) is hosting an open house on May 5th as they near completion of their remodel from a hotel to rental suites. They gave me a hard-hat tour of the Robson Tower and a few of their one bedroom and studio suites.

The furnishings in the presentation suites that will be open during Saturday’s event are all from CB2 which is located at the foot of the Robson Tower.

The Alberni Tower (750 Jervis) is 23 floors with 128 suites (42 studio, 84 one bedroom, 2 one bedroom penthouses). The Robson Tower (788 Jervis) has 106 suites on 20 floors (34 studio, 68 one bedroom, and 4 one bedroom penthouses). Studios start at $1100/month and one bedrooms start at $1500/month.

The former covered pool area for the hotel has been completely re-done into an amenities building for the two towers. It will feature a bike workshop, laundry, and public art space. The property is smoke-free and WIFI is available in the common area.

Stop by the rental centre at 1289 Robson Street from 11:30am until 5:00pm on Saturday, May 5, 2012 to learn more. Visitors will also be entered to win $500 to spend at CB2. You can view more photos of the transformation on the PaPa Flickr account.
