VANCOUVER | The Exchange | 116m | 31 fl | U/C

Vancouver mayor hails $200-million Credit Suisse office tower project for downtown financial district


By Tiffany Crawford, Postmedia News January 24, 2014 8:18 AM




Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson helped break ground Thursday on a new $200-million, 31-storey Credit Suisse office tower in Vancouver’s financial district.

Robertson heralded the project as an end to the city’s business vacancy woes, as Vancouver remains one of North America’s tightest markets for office space.

Vancouver’s vacancy rate for class A office space is 5.3 per cent. That’s compared with 8.7 per cent in Montreal and 9.7 per cent in Edmonton. But according to commercial real estate specialists Cushman and Wakefield, Vancouver’s vacancy rate is projected to jump to 7.7 per cent this year and to 10.5 per cent in 2015.

The Exchange, which will be joined with the old Stock Exchange building at 475 Howe Street, built in 1929, will be the first LEED Platinum conversion of a heritage building in Canada. LEED Platinum is the highest designation for sustainable building design from the Canada Green Building Council.

It is the first B.C. venture for Credit Suisse and will provide 369,000 square feet of office space, or enough space for 1,700 workers.

Robertson said the tower will add much-needed office space in the downtown core and contribute to the city’s goal of becoming the greenest city in the world.

The six other office towers under construction are: Telus Garden at 448,000 square feet; 745 Thurlow at 365,000 square feet; 980 Howe at 250,000 square feet; The MNP Tower at 270,000 square feet; 725 Granville at 300,000 square feet; and Aqulini’s Tower at 180,000 square feet...

The Pinstripe Principle defines the design of The Exchange. The pinstripes themselves are aluminum louvres – beginning at ground level of the new building and stretching skywards above the original Edwardian building – creating a seamless integration of the two structures. The building will be Vancouver’s first LEED Platinum heritage conversion, a collaboration between Iredale Group Architecture and Harry Gugger Studio

Would have looked better without the overhangs. Looks clumsy.

This might be one of the best facade retentions I've seen for a highrise. This is how they should all be done, a few meters set back from the historic structure so that it still looks like a separate building from most angles.
