Renfrew Centre

Located across from the Renfrew Skytrain station, this second phase of Renfrew Business Centre, consisting of a new office building with commercial retail at the ground floor. The building interfaces with the existing Arts Institute activating the entry plaza from Renfrew Street. This Class A office building provides larger floor plates (23,000 to 25,000 sf) to accommodate tenants with contiguous floor requirements in direct proximity to public transit.
A feature of this project is the innovative use of building form for shading the building. Inspired by a “drape” blowing in the wind, the sinuous curve of the building identifies this active area in front of the Renfrew SkyTrain station. The public realm is designed for the pedestrian in mind coming from the station and entering this new commercial precinct in the heart of East Vancouver.
