The dual form of the development at 1575 West Georgia responds to the unique shape of its site at the intersection of two city grids, and to the distinct character of the surrounding area. Adjacent to Vancouver’s waterfront Coal Harbour, the project is at the pivotal juncture where the West End neighbourhood flows into downtown. It is carefully sculpted to frame this urban transition and establish a gateway into the downtown core.
A slender 26-storey residential tower anchors the corner of Georgia and Cardero streets. Its distinctive screens provide shading and privacy for residents while reducing solar heat gain. A second 21-storey tower responds to the character of the residential towers along Pender Street. These dual aspects sit atop a four-storey podium offering retail at grade and 45,000 square feet of office space. The project is targeting LEED Gold certification and provides the opportunity to connect to a future neighbourhood district energy network.
