Mount Pleasant's New Forest Building!


This marks Vancouver City Council's first move to start rezoning Mount Pleasant as this beautifully designed Coastal Forest Architectural concept has been approved for the area of Main and Kingsway.


“Once a coastal forest, now a bustling urban site, the building presents a contemporary design response that simultaneously captures the ‘atmospheres’ of the old and new Mt. Pleasant.” Says local project architect, Arno Matis.


The building will house a variety of things from street side commercial and retail to over 80 units of residential and even laneway studio spaces for urban artists. The futuristic design and architectural concept will filter light of varying intensity throughout the day. The idea behind this unique approach is to capture to feeling of a forest canopy and how it filters the daylight.


 “The project’s ‘vertical forest’ façade, is an impressionistic interpretation of light filtering through Vancouver’s costal rainforest“ notes Architect Arno Matis.
