There has been a developer’s sign, (for Rize Alliance with Pioneer), on this site for many months. Now the development application has been submitted for a 285,000 square feet office building on 14 floors, with some retail space on the main floor, designed by Musson Cattell Mackey. The building would be to the south of the VIA, bus and Amtrak station and very close to the SkyTrain station.
For now there are no 3D renderings, although there should be a model at the Urban Design Panel soon, but this is not your typical office box. The elevations show a complex folded crystal shape, quite different from the typical office project (although there have been several recent designs for office projects that are more adventurous architecturally). Above we have shown the south elevation, that would face the SkyTrain guideway and Terminal Avenue, and below it the west elevation, facing Thornton Park.
