625 West Hastings

The proposed development is a 150,611 SF, 30-storey office building with 2 levels of below-grade parking, accessed by two vehicle elevators. The massing conforms to the heights of the site’s view cone parameters. The office tower is broken down into three equal parts that gradually recess and relate to the proportions of the adjacent heritage Royal Bank building. Pattern and articulation are created on the façade by the varying depths of vertical fins. Clear anodized aluminum extrusions provide contrast and detail while maintaining a connection to the existing heritage façade and floor levels. The structure of the new office will create a unique opportunity to design a new lateral loading resisting system that can support both buildings while providing a seismic upgrade to the Royal Bank.

The proposed building plays its part in completing the streetscape along Hastings Street while maintaining its own unique quality.
