Originally built as an office tower of Westcoast Transmission in the 1960s, the Qube was converted into condominiums in 2006. Duke Energy acquired Westcoast Transmission in 2002 and shortly thereafter Anthem Properties applied to the City of Vancouver to convert the office to condominium apartments. Classic style converges with contemporary elegance leaving you with a true sense of openness and freedom. Overheight ceilings in every suite help expand your sense of personal space. Conceived to satisfy your need for efficiency, beauty, and charm. Open living areas, sleek European inspired kitchens and exceptional detailing throughout are featured to enrich your living experience. Outside, lush, mature landscaping provides a calming buffer to the world, while QUBE's dramatic lobby entrance always ensures a comforting welcome home. Suspended from steel cables mounted on a central concrete core, this building is a Vancouver landmark. To maintain and enhance the historical value of this building, Anthem upgraded the strength of the original core structure and re-faced the exterior glass to provide opening windows while maintaining the original look and feel. Effectively, Anthem created a unique urban living experience, close to the waterfront, Urban Fare, waterfront, the shopping mecca of Robson Street, and the downtown business core.
