155 Water Street

155 Water Street is a 7 storey boutique building in the heart of Gastown. 155 Water Street combines two historic sites, the old Harper Warehouse and BC Plate Glass & Importing Co. Due to the historic significance of these two buildings the new design retains the two historical facades fronting Water Street.
On the east façade, within a private breezeway, the profile of one of the historic buildings is reconstructed using salvage bricks. The design of the new building is an elegant steel and glass structure giving the new design a contemporary and modern industrial feel. The bases of the project consist of retail on the ground floor accessed off Water Street with the remaining storeys dedicated to office use. The building has an outdoor rooftop amenity space that has 360-degree views of the north shore, downtown and Gastown. This project is targeting Leed Gold Certification.
