A high-rise condo at Vancouver
Heatherwick Studio is spearheading a tree-inspired mixed-use makeover in downtown Vancouver’s West End, with the intention of disrupting the city’s long-standing pattern of glass skyscrapers.
The project has gained momentum with the submission of a rezoning application by Bosa Properties and Kingswood Properties for their land assemblage at 1728 Alberni Street and 735 Bidwell Street — the southwest corner of Alberni and Bidwell streets.
English Bay is located to the south, while Stanley Park is located to the west. In the heart of the West End. An urban and naturalist’s dream, the West End has panoramic vistas of a bustling working waterfront, Kitsilano and the University of British Columbia, as well as Stanley Park.
Anywhere in the West End is simply a few feet away from public transportation. Its major thoroughfares connect it to Skytrain (to all eastern locations) and Canada Line (to Richmond and the Vancouver International Airport). You may walk or take the bus to the Rogers Arena and BC Place. Bypassing Georgia Street and its northern causeway, Denman Street connects to North and West Vancouver, and Highway 99 to Whistler.
Simon Fraser University’s continuing education programs may be found at Harbour Centre on West Hastings. The Woodwards Building, one of New York City’s most famous landmarks, houses the School for Contemporary Arts. SFU has a significant presence in downtown Vancouver thanks to the Segal Graduate School of Business and the Morris J. Wosk Dialogue Centre.
To the south, English Bay and Burrard Inlet, and to the west, Stanley Park characterize one of Vancouver’s most dynamic communities. The West End was the first actual downtown. Densely populated, yet with views of a busy working port, Kitsilano and UBC, and Stanley Park, the West End is an urbanist’s and naturalist’s dream.
A 4,100-square-foot childcare facility and 14,700 square feet of retail and restaurant space will be on the building’s first two levels. The Yard also serves as the entrance to both towers’ residential lobby spaces. The room is lit by a skylight on the podium’s ceiling, and the proponents believe the podium may be made of structural timber.
Residents will have access to a 15,000-square-foot leisure space atop the podium, which will include a pool, exercise center, and residential lounge. They are arranged around a four-story atrium, which is enclosed inside a curving structure that separates the podium base, giving the city a new vibrant amenity fed by the commercial portions.
