The 31 -storey office building includes a 3-storey retail podium with below grade parking. The massing of the building conforms to the heights of the site view cone parameters, celebrates its corner location and resolves the intersection of the two downtown street grids. The three storey podium continues the street massing of Pender Street and provides a receptacle for the singular form of the tower. A canopy element visually holds these two forms together and provides weather protection and a statement of entry.
All roofscapes are activated and accessible with two private roof terraces at the top and a larger roof terrace at level four, accessible to all tenants and associated with the building’ s overall amenity space offering. Triple glazing and glass solar shading are the major components of a high quality building envelope. The horizontal external expression recognizes and enhances the differing solar orientations and cardinal “gateway” vistas that provide orientation of the building within the downtown core.
