1151 W Georgia Street

1151 West Georgia is located on Vancouver’s Georgia Street in the Central Business District. The elegant, slim, triangular, 167-meter tower rotates 45 degrees between its base and its roof.

Situated on Vancouver’s primary ceremonial street, the proposed tower is conceived as a singular pure form rising from the ground plane to the parapet in a graceful spiral. The massing results from the rotation of a constant truncated triangular floor plate to create a powerful iconic form for this tall building. A three-storey podium element engages the tower on the east side responding to the similarly scaled Terasen Building podium. The large public open space fronting Georgia Street offers a sunny place for congregating and gives access to the mid-block connectors to the north.

The project is in collaboration with dys architecture and in association with Arthur Erickson.
