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. Over height 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.
This building was portrayed as the "Phoenix Foundation" in the TV series, MacGyver.
Fully renovated in 1990 and converted into condo in 2006.
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.
Converting to 180 condominiums by mid-2006.
Known as the Westcoast Transmission Building from 1969-2000 and Duke Energy Building from 2000-2004.
Address was changed from 1383 to 1333 West Georgia in 2005 following conversion to condos.
