Ten weeks since our last update, and progress at the site of the mixed-use Burrard Place three-tower development in downtown Vancouver has been progressing nicely. In particular, progress on the residential portion of the development has been moving ahead the fastest, the base having risen several storeys above grade.

Burrard Place will eventually be comprised of two residential towers at 36 and 54 storeys apiece, along with a 13-storey office tower. Viewed in the images above and below, the podium base for the residential towers has truly begun to take shape.

Burrard Place is located at the corner of Drake and Burrard Streets, the project to deliver a sizeable 810 units to the core. The project was designed by IBI Group and Revery Architecture for Reliance Properties and the Jim Pattison Group

The 30,000 square-foot amenity space, to be placed in the tallest tower, will include a fitness centre, lap pool, children's play room, and lounge. Slated for completion by 2020, Burrard Place will be a welcome addition to downtown, bringing a massive 1 million square feet of state of the art office space to the city.  

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.
