First Place

This non-market housing project in the South East False Creek area is now close to completion. First Place – an 11 storey buiilding located at 1st Avenue and Quebec Street reached full height in spring 2011, and the final pieces are coming together. The design by GBL Architects Group shows another striking building targetted for LEED Gold rating funded by BC Housing on a City of Vancouver owned site. The building really stands out because there’s nothing (yet) nearby, although once Central, Opsal and Lido are built it will see quite small. The south facing edge of the building will be visible for many years as the adjacent Shell gas station is getting new pumps rather than redevelopment.
