Finished, and with the curved glazed facades as dramatic as the artist’s renderings suggested they would be, Jameson House was squeezed onto a relatively tiny site on West Hasting Street. The project needed a helping hand from Bosa when the original developers ran into difficulties. The Foster and Partners design (in a rare example of an outside designer working in Vancouver) is quite different from anything seen here before. The curved facades cantilever out over the protected heritage buildings, that in turn had to be held up while the building’s parking floors were squeezed in underneath. There’s a modest office building underneath the residential floors as well.
