This is pretty cool, but should be moved to the Highrises section.

Indeed, a very nice design. Vancouver is just so attractive for appartment housing.

In a very unique lot, the design really wouldn't make sense anywhere else but I like it

Provided no car goes straight off the freeway and ends its course in the building... (i saw on tv it happened recently, can't remember where), should be easily dealt with with some added protection on the sides of the ramps and the corner offices in that podium will get awesome views... a future preferred spot to shoot some movie scenes... i'd love to see it in some BSG or Caprica style show.

Vancouver City Council has unanimously approved a proposal to build a 497-foot tower at the north end of the Granville Street Bridge, designed by world renowned Danish architectural firm Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG).

The speakers at last night’s public hearing, including many local residents, were overwhelmingly in favour of the project. It likely influenced City Council’s decision, which came down to a 11-0 “yes” vote giving developer Westbank Projects the final stamp of approval it needed to implement the next development phases that will lead to the construction of the 52-storey tower – the fifth tallest in the city.
