That is a larger copy of a building being built in New York City by the High Line. Still a great design.

Office Tower Rising Above Ground Alongside Former Stock Exchange

Quote:
fresh shots depict the concrete-frame building about three floors above the street. Construction hoarding surrounds the site as restoration work continues on the former stock exchange. If all goes according to the timeline, the project will be complete in 2017.

Design is a bit aggressive for a residential, but still cool. At least it's different and that's something Vancouver really needs architecturally.

Social Housing Complex at 1107 Seymour Street on the Rise


Quote:
Currently going up at the corner of Seymour Street and Helmcken Street in the heart of Vancouver's Yaletown, a 15-storey social housing complex at 1107 Seymour has nearly topped off. Designed by Endall Elliott Associates for the city, the complex will include a six-storey base filled with social services offices, topped by a nine-storey tower offering 81 residential rental apartments.
Replacing the site of the former offices of the Positive Living Society of BC and AIDS Vancouver, the new office space is expected to contain a variety of local social services. Seen in the rendering above, the two portions of the tower will be made distinct from one another via the usage of different exterior decoration and design. A modern take on the area's surrounding traditional architecture (seen in the foreground), the podium will help connect the structure to the street.

Commercial Drive Development Aims to Increase Population Density

Quote:
An integrated social services and residential complex has been proposed for Vancouver's Commercial Drive in an effort to increase the area's density. Much of Commercial Drive's population has been pushed out of the area due to gentrification, and Boffo Properties has put together a development plan that would be provide self-sustaining low-income housing while bringing residents back to the area. The project at Commercial Drive and Venables Street was originally proposed to be 15 storeys tall. The area's current residents have voiced concerns over the increase in population density and big developer interest, leading to the project's current scaled-back height of 12 storeys.

How you guys make it?Here in Germany,even if a City with 700,000 people has 20,000 millionaires(which is a lot) maybe only 10% want to live in a flat in the 40th floor with their children.So you can sell only 200 highrise appartments,because only millionaires can pay 10,000 dollars/sq meter for an appartment.Because highrises/skyscrapers are very very expensive,and nobody wants to build cheap apprartments in grey,like communist blocks,which become to Ghettos(Public Housing Projects).

And for Office Space?There are only a few companies,who can pay more than 30 dollars/sq meter.Only a few banks(which quit a lots of jobs)and lawyers.

So how do you make it?To build so much highrises.You must have a lot of very rich people,who want to live/buy appartments in highrises,or investors and very big,rich banks,who are growing!?We have the Deutsche Bank,who is one of the biggest banks in the world,but they loose every year thousands of jobs,so who can fill all these expensive office spaces?New comapnies are young and cannot pay so much money for a Skyscraper office space.One normal skyscraper costs here 300-400 Millions Dollar(120-200 Meter) and the money must come back.

You're misleading him/her. If there were no foreign money in the market Canadian cities would still be building lots of condo towers. It has to do with zoning, real estate values, a cultural interest in downtown living, and urban planning policies that encourage density over endless sprawl.

It's why you see more condo towers going up in Canadian cities vs US cities of the same size.

True story. But yeah, it's not the only reason. Vancouver has run out of space and can only grow vertically.

Waterfront Development Coming to West Vancouver

Quote:
Located across the harbour from Vancouver's downtown core and the dense forests of Stanley Park, West Vancouver's strategic position between the water and the mountains yields some of the most beautiful scenery in an urban setting anywhere in the world. The Ambleside community is the epitome of west coast living: boutique shops, quaint restaurants, and vibrant markets line the street, while green space like Ambleside Park offers places for swimming, tennis, baseball, and relaxation. Steps away from this neighbourhood amenity, real estate developer Grosvenor has begun construction on a seven-storey waterfront development that aims to infuse new life into the cherished village-like local atmosphere.

I hoped the casino glass wasn't actually going to be that color. Pretty awful. All the other projects look great though!

Landmark 'green lamp' office tower could change the face of downtown Vancouver

If this office tower proposal for downtown Vancouver is approved, it will likely set a new benchmark for skyscrapers in the city.

Local real estate developer Westbank Projects and Merrick Architecture have submitted a rezoning application to the City of Vancouver to redevelop the Budget Car & Rental site at 400 West Georgia Street into an ambitious architectural design.

At 301 feet in height and with just 24 storeys, it is by no means the tallest addition to Vancouver’s skyline. But it could be a significant one architecturally, continuing the trend for major projects that are anything but ‘cookie cutter’ when it comes to design.

Inspired by noguchi lamps, the building is designed as a cluster of white glass cubes that project outward from crevices that are filled with thick lush gardens trickling with water. Every single box contains four floors and its width is approximately equal to its height.


More info and pics in the link above.
