1166 Alberni

The Carmana development contains a mix of uses; rental and market residential condominiums, office and retail, all tightly incorporated into a dense urban site. As such, the ground level expansion of the office tower to include additional retail along Alberni Street had to respond to a number of constraints in terms of loading, vertical circulation, access and building services in order to achieve a design that expressed and supported all uses while maintaining an overall cohesiveness.  
Similar materials and vocabulary were used to rejuvenate the retail expression along Alberni Street. The retail pavilion at the Bute / Alberni corner provides punctuation to the end of the Carmana development and completes the retail experience along Alberni and up Bute towards Robson Street.
