Where the West End Flows into Downtown
Bosa Properties and Henriquez Partners Architects are poised to transform 1575 West Georgia Street into an urban cornerstone with a dual-tower residential building perched atop a four-storey podium, offering retail at grade and three floors of office space over seven levels of underground parking. This boutique collection of luxury residences raises the bar for architecture and innovative design in Vancouver. Anchoring the corner of Georgia and Cardero streets, a distinctive 26-storey tower is fitted with special screens to reduce solar heat gain while providing residents with greater privacy and shade. On the property’s Pender Street facing, a 21-storey tower alternatively reflects the residential character of its eastern neighbours.
