Updated hotel/casino proposal adjacent to BC Place. Being billed as an "urban resort" to take focus away from casino component which sunk the previous proposal. The plan for this incarnation is to only transfer over the Edgewater capacity rather than expand upon it (at least until later)...

Yowza! Concord Releases Plans For Eight New Towers



Quote:
Mega-developer Concord Pacific announced today plans to build eight high-rise towers complete with 1,300 condos and 90,000 square feet of office and retail space on the south side of the Cambie Bridge. The towers will be located in a new neighbourhood Concord is calling 'False Creek Central' (oooooh!) and will join Paragon's proposed mega casino/resort which, if approved, would be located in the same area. This news comes a week after Concert Properties announced their southeast False Creek development plans which will include five residential towers.

Oakridge Centre Has Some Mega Redevelopment Plans



Quote:
Oakridge Centre is currently awaiting City approval for mega redevelopments plans which would build eleven new residential towers ranging in height. Renderings also reveal plans to create neighbourhood plazas that feature ground floor retail and community common areas, an expansive outdoor area with community gardens, running trails, additional seasonal gardens, and more. As if that wasn't enough, there are plans to build 70,000 square foot civic centre, a 25,000 square foot library, and a 9,000 square foot daycare. To design this massive project, owner Ivanhoe Cambridge had to hire three architects and has also partnered with Westbank, seasoned developer, to complete the residential component.

BJARKE INGELS’ 52-STOREY LANDMARK VANCOUVER TOWER APPROVED BY CITY COUNCIL

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.

New Office Tower Proposed For Downtown Vancouver



Quote:
For those who think the downtown office tower development boom has peaked, think again. Another office tower could be on the rise at 320 Granville Street which would replace a parkade. The proposed tower will be 25-storeys and will consist of 350,000 square feet of office space and retail units on the ground level. The tower is designed by VIA Architects and is within proximity to another proposed tower located at 601 West Hastings Street.

Should The New Edgewater Casino Building Be Approved?



Quote:
A few months after renderings were released for the super wacky Edgewater Casino relocation building, the city's development permit board plans to give its input on the proposed development on December 16. The building has been plagued with controversy since new renderings hit the world wide web showing a unique 'U' shaped building pretty much over shadowing the recently renovated BC Place Stadium. Questionable design aside, many people are fighting against the proposed relocation of the Edgewater Casino with the catch phrase "Vancouver Not Vegas," protesting that Vancouver is not the right back drop for this resort-style mega casino.

Another Day, Another Proposed Downtown Office Tower



Quote:
Just when we thought the market couldn't handle another office tower squeezed onto our already slightly over developed peninsula, another rezoning application has been submitted for a new off 31-storey office tower by mega-developer Bentall Kennedy. The proposed tower will sit on the same city block as Bentall Centre, just a stones throw away from Burrard SkyTrain Station. Total square footage will be one of the biggest in recent developments at 565,000 square feet of office space and retail at ground level.

Mega-Development Approved For Burrard Street Corridor



Quote:
The Burrard Street corridor will continue its transformation with the approval of Jim Pattison's Burrard Gateway Tower Complex which will include a 54-storey residential tower, a 36-storey commercial tower, and a seven-storey podium for market residential and retail. The 54-storey tower will be the third tallest in Vancouver, only behind the Shangri-La and the currently under construction Trump Tower. In addition to the towers, the developer will be contributing $15.8 million in community amenities, including a $7 million LGBTQ community centre, $4 million for city improvements like bike lanes, $2 million for city wide cultural facilities, and another $2.8 million for community parks. As if our minds weren't blow already by the sheer volume of this development, there will also be another 14-storey tower that will be built along Burrard Street which will be used as office space and as a new home to the Toyota dealership. Total square footage of the development will be just shy of 900,000 square feet.

Paragon's Casino Gets The Green Light



Quote:
The $535 million urban casino resort, future home of the Edgewater Casino, has been approved. The preliminary development application included a few stipulations, the most noteworthy that the new casino cannot exceed the size of the current Edgewater Casino location a few blocks away. The casino will maintain 600 slot machines and 75 gambling tables with a total gambling floor size of 72,000 square feet.

In addition to the casino, two hotels will be built to include 550 guest rooms in total, as well as a rumored conference centre (because, you know, Vancouver really needs another one...) The total development size will be just shy of 700,000 square feet. The project hopes for a 2016 completion date.

MASSIVE $1.5-BILLION OAKRIDGE CENTRE REDEVELOPMENT APPROVED BY VANCOUVER CITY COUNCIL

Vancouver City Council has approved Oakridge Centre’s rezoning and redevelopment proposal with a 6-3 majority vote. It will allow the construction of 14 towers between 9 to 44 storeys tall while also doubling the amount of retail available at the 1959-built mall.

The scale of the development is unprecedented within the city proper limits and when complete, the tallest of the towers will become the City of Vancouver’s highest outside of downtown Vancouver.



Oakridge Centre is the largest of the thee major redevelopments planned along the Canada Line. A redevelopment project at the 25.4-acre Pearson Dogwood site at 57th Avenue and Cambie Street will renew Vancouver Coastal Health’s medical facilities, bring 3,083 residential units, green spaces, and a new/additional Canada Line station. Further down at the foot of Cambie Street, Marine Gateway has provided a catalyst for additional major development projects within the immediate vicinity.



This will be the only “Town Centre” within the City of Vancouver outside of downtown Vancouver whereas neighbouring Burnaby has three such hubs at Metrotown, Brentwood and Lougheed.

In addition to being served by the Canada Line, Oakridge Centre is located in the middle of Vancouver at the crossroads of two of the city’s major arterial roads (41st Avenue and Cambie Street).

TELUS GARDEN OFFICE TOWER BOASTS STREET OVERLAPPING ‘PROTRUDING BOX’ ARCHITECTURAL FEATURES

As construction crews come close to topping out the 22-storey Telus Garden office tower, some of its most prominent architectural features are beginning to take form.

The 500,000 square foot, 289-foot tall office tower will include a pair of protruding boxes that hover high above the sidewalks and road lanes of Richards Street on its east side and Seymour Street on its west side as an overextension of the low-rise portion of the building.

A third box will hang on the tower’s south side, over an alleyway that separates the tower from the Kingston Hotel, while a fourth box will be built onto the upper floors of the building’s northwest corner.

The $750-million Telus Garden is a two-part project that also includes a 443-foot tall residential building that also has architectural merits on its own. Its 46-storeys are spliced into what seemingly appears to be three large protruding boxes that imperfectly overlap over the other for a contrasting effect.

Both the office and residential towers will be built to a LEED Platinum certification and are slated for a 2015 completion.

More info and pics in the link above.
