VANCOUVER | The Georgia | 157m | 48 fl | Com

The Private Residences at the Hotel Georgia

The Private Residences are located next to the historical 12-storey 1927 landmark Hotel Georgia in the luxury district of Vancouver, and will house 155 stunning condominiums. The new tower, in which the Private Residence will be housed, is located on Howe Street and will feature striking canted facades and refracting surfaces.

The Private Residences are true luxury residences with interior design by Mitchell Freedland and distinctive architecture by IBI/HB. Residents will have access to all of the services and amenities offered to the patrons of the Hotel Georgia, including fitness trainers, pool, steam room, sauna, 24 hour concierge, valet, and room service. The Hotel Georgia development combines heritage preservation with an envelope-pushing high-rise development.

Built in 1927 in the Georgian revival style, the hotel presents luxury and elegance at its finest and was designed in the classical beaux-arts tradition, one of the last hotel’s in Vancouver to boast of this.

Wanting to add some contemporary flair to the elegant chandeliers and finely polished wood, the Georgia will soon see a number of not-so-slight nips and tucks that include building the Private Residences at Hotel Georgia which will be situated between the 14th and 48th floors of a sleek new tower. Of course, a renovation with a price tag this steep means that the hotel’s private residences will cater mostly to jet-owners and business tycoon types wishing to add a downtown address to their name. The Georgia has never fostered a reputation as a run-of-the-mill hotel.

Suites will range from 630 to 3,700-square feet, not including a penthouse that will take up the entire 48th floor. Suites will come with a balcony or deck and will available in 1,2 and 3 bedroom sizes. Of course, residents will be able to enjoy all the modern amenities of the hotel including its 55-foot by 15-foot pool, yoga and Pilates studio, spa services and dry cleaning facilities.

The 7,143-square foot penthouse offers 360 foot views of the surrounding city, shoreline and mountains. With four bedrooms, four decks, a lounge and wet bar, it gives new meaning to fine living. Also included in the steep price tag (yet to be determined) is a wine room, library, games room, formal dining room for 14 people and a kitchen well equipped to handle any catered event with two dishwashers, two ovens, two fridges, a six-burner stove and a butler’s pantry.

The private residences are expected to sell quickly given their location and the Georgia’s outstanding reputation. Hey, Elvis once stayed here.

According to their website, the Private Residences at Hotel Georgia presents ‘a beautiful mélange of historic elegance and ultra contemporary design,’ and yes, like most condominiums, the ads will likely feature a young, stylish couple enjoying life in their new home.



The tower includes:

- 33 floors of residential with 156 condos,
- 8 floors providing 60,000 sq. ft. of office space,
- 3 floors for hotel usage, 1 floor of retail, 1 mechanical floor
- 7 levels of underground parking.
- major renovation of old hotel

Height: 157 metres/517 feet
Floors: 48
Cost: $400 million
Completion: 2010
Status: Under construction, will commence past 2010
Architects: IBI/HB

The Final Design

This building would be a suitable replacement for the "unconstructable" 687 Howe building.

Heres some demolition progress on the parkade.



One Month later - Its all gone

To the south side of the site demolition work continues on a rear part of the hotel, perhaps the ballroom?. On the north side of the site there is a drilling rig *not visible) and some prep work being done to begin driving steel piles down, possibly to stabilize the walls during excavation.

Does the courtyard double as a fashion catwalk or something? They should really choose some more 'real' people for renders hehehe :P

I love the design. Vancouver seems to have a lot of buildings along this style. It would be nice if they shared some with Melbourne once in a while....
