MNP Tower

The MNP Tower is defined by its sculptural massing and silhouette resulting from careful consideration given to three adjacent heritage buildings. The building’s mid-block, compact site was previously occupied by the University Club between the Marine Building and Guinness Tower. The 35 storey office tower integrates the restored heritage façade of the University Club building while completing the block of three buildings owned by Oxford Properties.

The site size and contextual relationships yield an innovative massing and floorplate response. A grade, a plaza provides mid-block connectivity between Hastings and Cordova Streets, and a pedestrian link between the Marine Building and Guinness Tower. Above, teardrop-shaped floorplates of approximately 8,000 sf maximize views from within the tower and from adjacent buildings. The cornice of the building forms a peaked crescent and concave massing that not only references but embraces the adjacent Marine building.
