Several months since our last update, and progress upon The Pacific by Grosvenor has moved ahead significantly. What was once a deep excavation pit has blossomed into a full-fledged work site, with the lower levels of the 39-storey residential tower now edging towards grade.

Located at the corner of Pacific and Hornby, towards the southern tip of the downtown peninsula, The Pacific by Grosvenor will bring 214 units to the core. Close to Yaletown, Davie Village, and Granville Street, the new tower will one day be home to upwards of 300 people.

Designed by IBI Group and ACDF Architecture for Grosvenor, the tower will feature a distinctive, irregular, sawtooth-patterned balcony arrangement along its one side, with the largest floor plates at the top, and the smallest at the bottom. Down at grade, the base of the tower will come to rest upon a multi-storey podium, which will front onto the street.

Also at grade, the entirety of the 1880s-built Leslie House has been moved to make way for the tower, the heritage component to be fully restored at its new location. Once complete, The Pacific by Grosvenor will be a fine addition to the core, the tower part and parcel of downtown Vancouver's ongoing urban transformation.
