An astute reader spotted models at city hall of Westbank's "divine" tower proposal for the First Baptist Church on Burrard at Nelson street.
The upcoming 56 storey tower will be high-end, aimed at the luxury market with mostly two bedroom and larger units. Penthouses will make a splash with rooftop pools and hot tubs. Buyers can expect prices per square foot similar to Vancouver House, another luxury development, also by Westbank.
The Telus Garden office building has been complete and open since September, but the condo tower is still under construction. But it's edging ever closer to completion, with some of the finishing touches now being applied to the exterior.
When complete, the building will have 53 storeys and 428 units. The developer is Westbank and the architect is Henriquez Partners, who recently moved their office into the office building of Telus Garden.
