155 Water Street

155 WaterWe can finally illustrate this Gastown project. The City of Vancouver’s website has recently added the illustrations, elevations and further details of an office and retail proposal

The façade of the two storey 151 Water St would be retained, with three additional floors added in a complementary ‘heritage’ style, and 157 Water Street would be redeveloped, but the existing 7-storey façade would be ‘reconstructed’ to match the existing building, but with one less floor (so that floors line up across the entire structure). There’s a contemporary curtain wall upper part, set back even further. The project ends up with six floors of office over retail and restaurant uses, and the project would be 95 feet high  (the total space would be around 75,000 square feet and it would be 103 feet high to the top of the mechanical room). Musson Cattell Mackey are the architects.
