Marcon Developments is marketing its next Vancouver project as a "stunning example of West Coast modernism set atop the West End's natural crest," bolstered by a design from Henriquez Partners Architects that sports the twin-tower development with colourful accents. Mirabel will rise 19 and 18 storeys into the sky above 1345 Davie Street on a site currently occupied by low-rise rental buildings.

A development application submitted in fall 2016 for the northeast corner of Davie and Broughton streets set the stage for 153 units of market condominiums and 68 units of social housing, meant to replace the rental units poised for demolition. The vertical community will sprout from a podium wrapped in masonry cladding, with blue and gold glass balcony accents reflecting the ocean waters and setting sun. Balconies are equipped with corner trellises to provide privacy and animate the facade.

The official website for the project describes some of the finishes and furnishings residents can come to expect, including engineered hardwood flooring, European cabinetry, and Sub-Zero and Wolf kitchen appliances. Floor plans for two-bedroom and penthouse units in both the east and west towers have also been posted on the website, showing the living arrangements and protruding outdoor terraces. The 2,659-square-foot penthouse layouts include three bedrooms and a sprawling private roof deck featuring panoramic views of the city.
