Olympic Station/W2, a new strata housing development in Vancouver's Southeast False Creek area, has been under construction since 2018. We last checked in on the 12-storey project's construction progress back in November 2019, and work on the new building has made great strides in the over three months since our last update.
Developed by Aurmon Development with architecture from DYS Architecture, the project is set to feature a modern look finished in a window wall system and a mix of projecting and inset balconies offering views of False Creek and Yaletown.
At the time of our last update in November, forming of the underground parking garage had been completed and concrete had begun to rise above street level. Structural forming has since been completed up to the ninth level, and is currently moving on to the 10th floor above.
With two more floors to form, insulation is now being applied to support the window wall cladding system. The first panel of window glazing is visible in the lower left of the image below.
Upon completion Olympic Station/W2 will house 133 strata units offered in a mix of configurations including 9 three-bedroom units, 35 two-bedroom units, 83 one-bedroom units, and 6 studio units. Additionally, a parking garage constructed beneath the development will offer spaces for 137 vehicles. Olympic Station/W2 draws its name from the Olympic Village Skytrain Station on the Canada Line that it is located nearby, another means of transportation for building residents once work wraps up.
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.
