Two months since we last checked in at the site of 400 West Georgia Street, and significant progress has been made. The pagoda-esque core of the 24-storey office tower by Westbank and Merrick Architecture has now risen at least 6 storeys above grade, the project to eventually take the shaped of a stacked series of cubes.

Located at the corner of West Georgia and Homer Street in the heart of downtown, the sculptural high-rise will eventually be home to 375,000 sq. ft. of modern office space. Set to incorporate ample greenery, to be spread across every floor, the bulk of the glass-clad project will form something of an office tower/greenhouse hybrid.

Centrally located, and close thus to the financial district, SkyTrain, and many of the core's prime commercial thoroughfares, 400 West Gerogia Street will be a popular address for commercial tenants of all stripes. Convenient for employers and employees, and offering a beautiful, state of the art work space, 400 West Georgia Street will be truly be a standout project.

For now, however, observers will have to make due with seeing the empty core of the tower rise, it to be some time yet before the sculptural elements make their debut. 

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.
