Is your New Year's resolution to finally move into your dream home? 

If so, here's one appealing option—if your dream home is a swanky West End condo with ocean and mountain views, and pretty much every amenity you can imagine. 

The catch? You'll need to pay $13,888,800 for the privilege. 

That, and it's not finished being built yet. 

The condo in question is a 4030-square-foot unit in the Alberni, a 43-storey tower currently under construction at 1550 Alberni Street, near Cardero. At over $13 million and more than $3,446 per square foot, its list price is the highest of any Vancouver condo currently listed for sale on REW.ca, by a fairly wide margin

The REW listing describes the dwelling as "a true masterpiece in the heart of Downtown Vancouver overlooking the water and mountains." The unit, no. 3902, features three bedrooms and four bathrooms, not to mention its own private Japanese garden on the balcony. The unit also comes with two parking spaces and one storage locker.  

Residents will have access to truly luxurious amenities like a full gym and indoor swimming pool, an art gallery, a wine tasting room, and a soundproof listening/music room, to name just a few. While the owners of this unit will only have to share their floor with one other, the building will house a total of 188 units across its 43 stories. 

The building itself is designed by Japanese architect Kengo Kuma, and, with its unique curved exterior, has been called "one of the most iconic buildings in the world." According to the listing, Kuma's design "takes you through the discovery of Japanese use of space and sophistication," and takes into account "elements of Shinto philosophy seeking to harmonize structure with nature."

If a shared wine-tasting room sounds right up your alley but $13.888 million is just a touch outside your budget, don't fret: There are plenty of other units in the yet-to-be-completed building currently listed for sale on REW, including several slightly more affordable one- and two-bedroom options. 

Construction on the Alberni is expected to be complete in 2021 or 2022. Scroll through the gallery above to check out some renderings of the property.
