Spot – 2800 Cambie Street

Here’s the built version of  ‘Spot’, approved in early 2015, and now just completing.  It first showed up in April 2012, and was redesigned in the summer if 2013. Council have to live with the design – it’s across the street from City Hall, on the corner of 12th Avenue and Cambie.

Earlier designs by Fougere Architecture for Shato Holdings (who own White Spot – there was a restaurant on the southern half of the site) were rejected by the Urban Design Panel. IBI/HB’s design has a much more contemporary look than the rejected earlier attempts, and the final version has fewer units, and just two layers. The new building has 8 rental units as well as 125 condos, and a relocated heritage house on 13th Avenue. The street trees are still to be planted, but the ‘as built’ otherwise looks very much as promised on the models and renders.

  1. Really like how this turned out! The contrast between the black and white portions is fantastic.
