128 W CORDOVA ST. Downtown VW, Vancouver West

14 Active Listing(s)
Located in the 100 block of West Hastings in Vancouver, the redevelopment involves a mix of 536 market and up to 200 non-market housing units, anchor food and drugstore, retail, urban green space, public plaza, federal and civic offices, a daycare, and a new addition to the SFU downtown campus: the School for Contemporary Arts.

The oldest part of the complex will be restored as non-profit community space. Considered to be one of the largest mixed-use projects in the history of Vancouver, Woodward’s multi-faceted program demonstrates the many elements necessary for a healthy, liveable neighbourhood.Constructed in 1903, the now demolished Woodward’s was once a premiere shopping destination and the 'W' sign atop the building a distinctive landmark on the Vancouver skyline. 

Henriquez Partners assembled a project team, including developer Westbank Projects/Peterson Investment Group and community dvisor PHS Community Services. Collaborating in a lengthy two-stage competition, Henriquez Partners was awarded the project in September of 2004.

Consultation with community groups throughout the design process established maintenance of the project’s financial feasibility while meeting the neighbourhood’s unique social needs. 

Expanding the mandate of the architect, Henriquez Partners orchestrated public and private sector resources to recognize the needs of all stakeholders.To contribute meaningfully to the preservation of Woodward’s history and the neighbourhood’s heritage character, the project integrates fragments of the existing 1908 building. 

Planted exterior façades and roofs give poetic expression to the project’s commitment to sustainability on a large urban scale. The original 'W' sign, removed before demolition, will be refurbished and installed when the redevelopment is complete.
