When we last checked in at the site of the future Bosa Waterfront Centre at 320 Granville Street in downtown Vancouver, there stood a formidable 9-storey parking garage in its path. More than a year later, while the concrete obstacle still stands, its diminished stature has given rise to hopes of construction commencing soon for the Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates and Chris Dikeakos Architects-designed 30-storey office tower by Bosa Development.
Viewed above in early July, the shrouded mass of the parking garage is noticeably shorter than just a few weeks ago, as compared to a similar view of the structure captured below from late June. Having lost at least two storeys in a matter of weeks, it is reasonable to predict that the parking garage will punch its last ticket before month's end.
Set to rise from the corner of Granville and W Cordova, between Coal Harbour and Gastown, and within easy walking distance of the Waterfront SkyTrain station, the project is situated upon a prime piece of downtown real estate. Placed above seven levels of underground parking, the 30-storey tower will bring 355,000 square feet of AAA office space to the core, thereby representing a rare retreat from the ever-popular condo.
Grounded by an undulating front entranceway with retail frontage onto both W Cordova and Granville, the Bosa Waterfront Centre will be an excellent addition to the the downtown streetscape upon its projected completion date of 2021.
SkyriseVancouver will be sure to return to this project as progress continues. For more information, check out the associated Database file and Forum thread, and as always, feel free to join the conversation in the comments section below.
