Vancouver House Penthouse Released - 1480 Howe Street
Architectural High-rise designed by BIG Architects - Bjarke Ingles Group
WESTBANK Building Penthouse for sale
The custom Fazioli piano in the grand salon is the centrepiece of this stunning home. Thoughtfully laid out floor plans maximize space and the floor to ceiling windows showcase panoramic views of downtown Vancouver and Mount Baker. The dressing room in the master bedroom feels like your own private boutique and the marble clad five-piece ensuite resembles a spa retreat.
Architectural Design The project was first presented in February 2012, which immediately drew plenty of attention for its unique design and architecture. The stunning high rise tower and modernist podiums were designed by famous danish architect Bjark Ingles, of BIG. Finally in a unanimous vote by City Council on October 24th, 2013 the “BIG” 52-storey twisting tower was approved and will be built by Westbank. The renderings and development plans received plenty of positive feedback from the community and especially within the real estate industry. The dramatic architectural design, added density and public art instalments drove local support for this project. I am most excited about the exterior design, the 52-stories of the building, and the local amenities that will be added to improve the area. The project already has potential buyers anticipating the sales launch. It is very refreshing to see innovative architecture being added to the Vancouver skyline. The latest news is that sales will commence in early 2014, and construction following in September 2014. For more information and first access to the homes for sale at this project please contact me.
Project Details The project will consist of a mix of residential (407 residential units) and commercial spaces, in addition to transforming the dead zone area under the Granville Street bridge with public art displays. The 10 storey podium will have a mix of rental housing (95 units), commercial spaces, and retail. Along the Granville and Pacific sites there will be 6-storey buildings providing additional office and retail uses.
