A Vancouver-based developer is partnering with an eclectic, award-winning Japanese architect to design a new luxury condo tower in Coal Harbour.
PortLiving announced Wednesday that they are going to be working with Shigeru Ban on his first project ever in Canada.
The yet-to-be-named condo development will be built at 1250 West Hastings Street between Bute and Alberni streets, former site of proposed “The Views” project, which did not go forward.
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.
The controversial condo tower at 508 Helmcken St. (now 1111 Richards St.) next to Emery Barnes Park in downtown Vancouver is moving forward. It's now called 8x on the Park and presales begin May 2016.
Coming to the site, currently home to the Jubilee House social housing building, will be a 36-storey mixed use tower with 448 residential units, 110 of which will be market rental and 338 market condos. There will also be a private Montessori pre-school and kindergarten in the building on the first two floors. The building was designed by GBL Architects.
Some interesting renderings have surfaced for an extremely valuable redevelopment site in Coal Harbour that has been in the news lately.
1444 Alberni Street, currently home to a 1970s-era rental apartment tower, along with an office building at 740 Nicola St., were first acquired by Wall Financial for $83.5 million in 2014.
Aurmon Developments (developers of Raffles on Robson, R&R) are proposing a new 12 storey condo building at West 2nd Ave. and Wylie St. in the Olympic Village/South East False Creek neighbourhood.
The lot at 371 West 2nd Ave., across from the Maynards development & Petsmart, is one of last remaining vacant lots on the north side of the street and is currently home to a community garden.
Ellsworth and developer, Chard Development, is accepting registrations for the 89 unit, 10 storey building. Ellsworth will feature a mix of studio, one, two and three bedroom homes. The building will feature a large rooftop deck and amenity space, plus commercial space on the ground floor.
