Vancouver's Skyline is Changing for the Better


Vancouver City Council approved to build a 500 foot tower at the North end of the Granville bridge on the downtown side. This new tower will sit in the derelect empty spaces that occupy the North end of the bridge. The City Council unanimously voted 11-0 for the project to move forward designed by the renowned Danish architect from the Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG).


Most local residents are in general favor of the project since it will revamp the current derelect area of the city into a more commercial/residential district and bring in a lot more activity and culture to the area. The Westbank Corporation now has the final stamp of approval to move ahead with the 4th tallest tower in the city.



One of the reasons the Council and local residents were so on board with the construction of the new project could be the fact it strays away from the 'cookie cutter' condo feeling in the downtown area and moves to a more modern progressive stance on building architecture.


The new triangle to square structure will provide a new gateway to the downtown core and we definintely reshape the skyline of Vancouver.
