Nearly three months since our last update, and progress at the "twin" tower Cardero by Bosa Properties and Henriquez Partners Architects has moved ahead significantly. The 26- and 21-storey towers have now risen close to their final heights, with the taller of the two's decorative, overhanging, balcony feature now beginning to go up.

Viewed above and below, the angular balcony overhangs will eventually cover each of the balcony floor plates upon the two outer faces of the taller tower from top to bottom - save for the podium. Looking at the moment like either an engineering mishap, or a pair of giant slides, the feature will soon take on a more artful appearance as more of the overhangs and installed.

Located at the complicated intersection of Cardero, W Georgia, and W Pender, Cardero's distinctive, bent silhouette, hugs the curve of the latter two roadways. Thus, the unique, conjoined aspect of the "twin" tower development came into being.

Playing into this theme, the design team has done an excellent job of making the project work, its two volumes both similar and dislike in equal measure. Soon to be home to more than 200 people, spread across 119 units, Cardero will be a prime downtown address. 

SkyriseVancouver will be sure to return to this project as progress continues. For more information, check out the associated Database and Forum thread, and as always, feel free to join the conversation in the comments section below.
