Construction is well underway at the Vancouver House development by Westbank at Howe and Pacific in downtown Vancouver.
The 52 storey tower was designed by renowned Danish architect Bjarke Ingels, and is slated for completion in 2018, although that seems quite ambitious as you can see by these photos.
The City of Vancouver held an open house Wednesday night to unveil their preferred concept for a new park in Yaletown, close to the business district -- the first new park downtown in almost a decade.
The lot is across from the Dolce and Vita developments on the corner of Smithe and Richards, and has been in the works for several years. The site is currently a parking lot, but part of it was previously occupied by the restaurant Lucy Mae Brown, which later became a temporary homeless shelter.
Exciting redevelopment plans for the biggest vacant building in downtown Vancouver, the old post office, have been unveiled.
The project is still years away, and a rezoning application is not expected to be submitted until later this year, but the developer, Bentall Kennedy, plans to convert the massive old building into a mix of retail, offices and residential with four new towers built on top.
