The rezoning application for the White Spot site on West Georgia Street has been filed with the City of Vancouver, and new models are on display at City Hall.
Two 38-storey towers are planned with a total of 455 strata condominium units. A podium will connect the two towers and provide a consistent streetwall along West Georgia.
The towers and the podium have a unique, wavy design “inspired by the rippling wake of a boat turning in water or like the passing of wind through clouds,” according to the architects.
The development will include a mid-block connection between Alberni and West Georgia Street.

The design rationale states: “Vancouver and its signature skyline have always had a special and unique relationship with the sky, the mountains, and the water. We sought to capture this in our architecture, paying special attention to the dynamic relationship of ever changing reflections and patterns of wind upon waves.”
