Developed by Westbank and designed by prominent Japanese architect Kengo Kuma, the 43-storey condo building will replace an office building at Alberni and Cardero streets. This will be Kuma's first major project in North America. He is well known for the use of wood in his designs, and this building is no exception.
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.
