A new playful tower just landed from the Bjarke Ingels Group, located on the north end of the Granville Bridge. Vancouver developer Ian Gillespie has hired the renowned Danish architecture firm to transform the challenging industrial area.

Mr. Ingel’s 52-storey tower curves away from the Granville Bridge, growing from a small base and then broadening out as it rises. It is covered in a latticework of balconies that incorporates bronze trim, giving it a metallic sheen, deliberately playing off the grittiness of the concrete bridge.

The building features 407 condo units, 95 rental units, 80,000 square feet of retail space and 77,000 square feet of office space.

Beach District:
  • Applying the “Total Design” philosophy to an entire district and building on the success of Granville Island across False Creek, Vancouver House is not just an architectural breakthrough, but the active core of a new waterfront neighbourhood called the “Beach District”.
  • The concept is to create a diverse and lively zone for living and shopping with a new retail, hospitality, workspace, and cultural community.
  • The Beach District will directly connect with a proposed greenway on top of the Granville Bridge, a panoramic walking and bike pathway to Granville Island and the retail and entertainment district along South Granville.
  • Year-round destination with restaurants and cafes, one-of-a-kind shops and services, food carts, street celebrations and craft & farmers markets.

Structural Design:
  • High strength cast-in-place concrete structure.
  • Horizontal post-tension cables, and vertical post-tension rods to reduce the internal and external forces of the tower.
  • Wind design based on specialized wind tunnel study.

  • High performance, triple-glazed curtain wall glazing system which reduces heating demand by approximately 34% and cooling by 28%, and drops noise transmissions by approximately 50%.
  • Anodized aluminum balconies with copper-cladded wall and soffit accents.

Active Building Technology:
  • Heat recovery ventilation.
  • Low temperature hydronic heating and cooling Standby generator set for base building backup.
  •  Water conservation plumbing fixtures.
  • Highly efficient LED Lighting.

Building System & Sustainability:
  • LEED Platinum, the first for a residential highrise of this scale, including a linkage to Creative Energy’s district energy system.
