  • Located immediately east of the Credit Foncier Building.
  • The building features Vancouver's first cogeneration plant, which is powered by bio-diesel.
  • Plans include full restoration of the A-listed 1921 Ceperley Rounsfell Building and retention of the front facade of the B-listed 1929 Chamber of Mines.
  • First residential high-rise in North America by Foster and Partners (design architect Nigel Dancey).
  • City approved project on July 28, 2005.
  • The building's underground parking facilities are augmented by a European-style, fully-automated non-pallet parkade - the first in North America; cars are mechanically stacked and racked and can be retrieved in around 90 seconds.
  • The building's exterior form and design of the façade have been determined by the direction of prevailing winds as well as solar exposure.
  • Photovoltaic cells are employed on the south façade where there is maximum exposure to sunlight.
  • An additional floor was approved in 2008 of 8,181 square feet, allowed within the approved form of development and building height. The increase changed the above grade floor count from 37 to 38.
  • This mixed-use residential proposal was first submitted to the City Planning Department on October 15, 2004.
  • The "green" project carefully restores, and integrates, two heritage buildings to create a mixed-use building with retail and restaurants on the bottom three floors, eight floors of office space, and then followed with 25 levels of condominiums.
  • The building will generate its own power and have a water recycling system.
  • Structure was designed to LEED Gold standards.
  • In November 2008, the project stalled as bank financing was withdrawn due to global economic problems. All work was stopped.
