VANCOUVER | Projects & Construction

Vancouver, Canada

Canada's most beautiful city has more in common with San Francisco than Toronto. Despite it being very wet it's a prime location for Hollywood film shoots -the setting is spectacular. Ocean and mountains form a dramatic backdrop to the gleaming commercial towers of downtown where you'll find spectacular restaurants and cafe's after a 'swim-in-the-morning', 'ski-in-the-afternoon' day. Trace the city's history in Gastown and Chinatown, savour the wilderness only blocks from the city centre in Stanley Park and dine on superb ethnic or Pacific Northwest cuisine before sampling those clubs and bars.

Wow those are some nice projects. 1133 W.Georgia is one I haven't seen before and could be great if the facade is done right.

An impressive group of developments for sure. I had no idea Vancouver had such an extensive list of projects.

Also note that there is a lot of office building proposals under development right now as Vancouver is very much in need of office space. Currently vacancy rates in Vancouver sit around 3% and the number is expected to decrease by year's end.

The new Vancouver Convention Center - to be completed in 2008!

Vancouver still has bit of a small town culture and has to shake that off before it can become a world city. And most of the Highrises dt are condos.
There is no real industry in the city, thus it is heavily relying on the 2010 WINTER games for economic growth.

Still, the skyline does look nice for a city with barely 600,000 people.

vancouver is gigantic. yes Medo more height would be great. some towers between 200 and 300m, they shouldn't be to tall i think.

Vancouver has height restrictions and view cone requirements.

This article is a good place to start reading:

Amazing. Simply and purely amazing. I'd be so happy to have 1/4 of these projects in the Twin Cities.

WOW! So many awesome projects!
Where are the influx of people coming from that will be moving into these nice high-rise condos/apartments?
