1280 Burrard Street

1280-burrard-render

The Burrard Place condo and office project received a rezoning in 2013, and the first tower is now under construction. The developers said some time ago that the next phase would be the office, car dealer and retail building proposed for Burrard Street. The application is from IBI Group but the design is by Bing Thom Architects, and it’s a remarkable building with one of Bing’s favoured curved facades in a building over 180 feet high.

The Development Permit shouldn’t face many hurdles as it’s what was proposed at rezoning. The building will see a three storey car dealership (presumably for Pattison Toyota that was on the site before development started) with the service bays underground.  When built, if it looks like the render, it will be one of the best locally-designed buildings seen in the city in years.
