The Post

The Post

Covering a full city block, the Post on Georgia is the largest heritage revitalization project in British Columbia. The former Main Post Office building, an International Style landmark in Vancouver, is reimagined as a centrepiece for the growing downtown community with high tech office space, restaurants, retail, and a new public plaza. Two new office towers create a contemporary extension of the existing building while being respectful of the existing heritage elements.
Within the existing heritage structure, the development provides two levels of underground parking, retail opportunities on the first four levels, and office and parking above in the top three levels. The towers above are articulated to establish a formal relationship with the base and surrounding context, while a contrasting material palette distinguishes old and new. Each elevation has a distinct identity using solar shades and window detailing to echo proportions of the heritage façade and develop a visual hierarchy of scales.

Vancouver Centre II

Vancouver Centre II

The building is a thirty-two storey office building connected at the lower level to existing retail shopping. This new class A office building will augment the existing Vancouver Centre Complex. The ground floor lobbies are connected along Seymour Street with an Atrium. The new building includes new amenities such as fitness centre, premium end-of-trip-facilities and bicycle storage, 6th level podium terrace and 27th level sky terrace.  The building will have above and below grade parking to replace the existing parkade.  
To meet future expansion, the above grade parking is designed to allow conversion to office use as parking demands reduce in the downtown district. The form generated conforms to limits of the site, its mid-block nature, and view cone guidelines. Special attention and detail have been given to connecting the ground plane between the two office towers.
