We first posted a version of this project in June. We noted it was a ‘remarkably bold architectural proposal’ on the northwest corner of Burrard and West 5th Avenue. The architects are Yamamoto Architecture, and the Urban Design Panel reviewed the project, and unanimously rejected the design. The proposal took liberties with the view cone in the area and was also substantially higher than guidelines suggest.
Here’s the new version – more respectful of the guidelines and the neighbourhood, while still showing some cantilevered elements.
