VANCOUVER | 601 West Hastings Street | 122m | 25 fl | Pro

25 Storey Office Tower Planned At West Hastings Street



Quote:
A rezoning application has been submitted to build a 25-storey office tower at the corner of Seymour and Hastings Street where currently there is a public space and glass dome building. Wildly out of place, the glass dome will be demolished and a new 227,000 square foot office tower is hoping to be constructed. A smaller portion of the outdoor space will be saved and some ground floor retail will be created. The building is designed by B + H Architects and looks like a standard glass fašade tower, except that it has this yellow (gold?) overhang at the entrance that sort of makes us feel like it's the magic carpet from Aladdin. Disney movies aside, Vancouver office tower development doesn't appear to be slowing down anytime soon.

Vancouver Office Project Carves Out Sweeping Public Space

Quote:
The unique glass dome and public plaza at the corner of West Hastings and Seymour streets in Vancouver would go caput under a plan by Morguard Corporation and B+H Architects, who are proposing a 25-storey office tower for the site. Envisioned as an urban stimulant for the intersection, the highrise development would enhance the area's public amenities and add another two dozen floors of office space to the booming downtown core."]

The glass dome at this site looks very nice but so does this tower.
