VANCOUVER | Jameson House | 116m | 37 fl | Com

Jameson House is a 37-story high-rise mixed-use residential building located in Vancouver, British Columbia. The lower levels of the building there are devoted to a retail and office uses while the upper levels there are home to 131 luxury apartments, condominiums, and penthouses. Directly across the street, is the exclusive Terminal City Club, which includes a restaurant, library, fitness center and spa open to all residents of Jameson House. This project was designed around the principles of LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) and incorporates sustainable materials and a waste-and energy conscious approach to construction and management.

Jameson House will be a model for sustainable living with the tower’s waste and energy-conscious approach and environmental systems from energy efficient heating and cooling to the lighting controls that offer 30 – 40 per cent savings in energy.

-----------------------

Located in Vancouvers' heritage district, the mixed-use residential Jameson Tower is designed to engage with the built fabric of its historic surroundings, and exemplify sustainable living. This project continues Foster and Partners practice of designing contemporary interventions in historic structures that began with the New German Parliament at the Reichstag and the Great Court of the British Museum, and has recently been explored in a high-rise context with the Hearst Tower in New York.

The Jameson Tower project involves restoring the A-listed 1929 Ceperley Rounsfell Building, retaining the facade of the B-listed Chamber of Mines, and adding a new tower with 10 storeys of retail, restaurant and commercial accommodation, and twenty-five storeys of residential accommodation with subterranean parking. The formal massing of the tower refers to its urban setting, in particular, the adjacent 33-storey Terminal City Club tower, and the street-level two-storey heritage buildings.

The Ceperley Rounsfell Building will be restored to its original appearance, with the front and rear mezzanines returned to their original shape. Signage and fixtures to the new retail space will be consonant with the historic character of the building. The materials and scale of the office accommodation will contrast with the residential levels above, while referring to the architectural precedents of the surrounding 10-storey commercial buildings.

Sited within walking-distance of workplaces, shops and leisure facilities, the Jameson Tower offers an ideal model of sustainable urban living by reducing the carbon emissions resulting from transport and balancing energy consumption between its mixed-use program of day- and night-time activities. Its mix will reinforce the economic and social activity of the precinct area by bringing in new shops and services for existing businesses and residents.



- This mixed-use residential proposal was first submitted to the City Planning Department on October 15, 2004.
- The "green" project carefully restores, and integrates, two heritage buildings to create a mixed-use building with retail and restaurants on the bottom three floors, eight floors of office space, and then followed with 25 levels of condominiums.
- The building will generate its own power and have a water recycling system.
- Structure was designed to LEED Gold standards.
- Plans include full restoration of the A-listed 1921 Ceperley Rounsfell Building and retention of the front facade of the B-listed 1929 Chamber of Mines.
- City approved project on July 28, 2005.
- Located immediately east of the Credit Foncier Building.
- The building features Vancouver's first cogeneration plant, which is powered by bio-diesel.
- The building's exterior form and design of the facade have been determined by the direction of prevailing winds as well as solar exposure.
- Photovoltaic cells are employed on the south facade where there is maximum exposure to sunlight.
- First residential high-rise in North America by Foster and Partners (design architect Nigel Dancey).
- The building's underground parking facilities are augmented by a European-style, fully-automated non-pallet parkade - the first in North America; cars are mechanically stacked and racked and can be retrieved in around 90 seconds.

All construction is halted during the Olympics, no?

Very good looking residential. Much better than the usual 'suburban' tower that proliferates there.
