      It looks like a Coal Harbour penthouse will get the record as the most expensive Vancouver condo sold this year.

      There are two days left before the end of 2020, and with a number of condo properties on the market priced above it, the waterfront unit may yet get dislodged from its perch.

      Or perhaps not.

      A buyer picked up the three-bedroom, four-bath property with stunning 360-degree views on March 17.

      The $11 million purchase price was also below the original asking price.

      On January 24, 2020, Royal LePage Sussex listed the condo for $13.8 million.

      A day before that, the property was on the market for $15.5 million. This January 23 listing was terminated.

      Royal LePage Sussex also listed the penthouse on May 24, 2019 for $15.5 million.
