The site of a future 33-storey office building at 1090 West Pender Street is being prepared for demolition. Developed by Bentall Kennedy, with design by Musson Cattell Mackey Partnership, the project was approved for rezoning in May 2017. A development permit is currently under review at the city.

When finished, the building will be 33 storeys and 562,135 sq ft. There will be 6,378 sq ft of retail space on the ground floor, while the rest of the building will be dedicated to office space. There will be 432 parking spaces in 7 levels of underground parking, with 119 bicycle parking spaces.

The building will have passive design elements, with vertical glass fins on the south side to reduce sun exposure, and triple-glazed glass for energy efficiency. The building will feature a distinctive green roof with rolling topography. The 31st floor will be an amenity floor with BBQ area, banquet bar tables, and relaxation space. There will be additional tenant patios on the 3rd and 4th floors. The site is a 5-minute walk from the Burrard SkyTrain station, and is in the heart of Coal Harbour.

Should the project go up as planned, 1090 West Pender will be a fine addition to the core, its glass exterior to join many like it across Vancouver's glistening downtown skyline. 

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.
