Facts

  • This building was portrayed as the "Phoenix Foundation" in the TV series, MacGyver.
  • Address was changed from 1333 to 1383 West Georgia in 2005 following conversion to condos.
  • Known as the Westcoast Transmission Building from 1969-2000 and Duke Energy Building from 2000-2004.
  • Converting to 180 condominiums by mid-2005.
  • This building was built from the top down. The core was built first then steel was hung from cables at the top and floors were added all the way down. The first floor starts at the fourth level. Over the years the cables have stretched so that today a pencil might roll off your desk if you're not paying attention.
  • Fully renovated in 1990.
  • Recipient of the 1970-71 Design in Steel Award from the American Iron and Steel Institute.
