521 West 8th Avenue

521-w8th-render-1

Here’s a proposed office building that comes as quite a (pleasant) surprise. Musson Cattell Mackey, architects for many of the city’s office projects, have designed a 68,000 sq ft building on a small site with single storey retail behind the Cambie Street liquor store (that was once a McDonalds). The nine storey building squeezes in under the viewcone that protects the view of City Hall, and the design shows some interesting angles and variations.
