Vancouver City Council Approves Burrard Gateway Tower


The new "Approved" Burrard Gateway Tower will forever change the look and feel of travelling over the Burrard bridge. The new Jim Pattison tower will start to move the city in a new direction of building architecture away from the increasing stagnant "Yaletown" feel.


This 54-storey complex at the corner of Burrard and Drake streets will comprise one entire city block and allow for 3 towers of varying sizes. This will include: 54-storey tower, 36-storey tower and a 7-storey podium for a residential market, rental housing and retail uses including a grocery store.



This allowance of a 54-storey tower in the southern downtown region was allowed due to Jim Pattison incredible contribution to the surrounding area. The firm has agreed to donate more than $15 million in community and structural improvements to better the surrounding landscape and improve the lives of those living in it.


Yes, the Toyota dealership will stay but will be getting a revamping and allow for increased space and capacity.
