The Charleson

Situated adjacent to Vancouver’s thriving Yaletown neighbourhood, The Charleson occupies a small site characterized by a triangulated overhead view cone. Rental and for sale housing is mixed with an active retail podium. The previously dormant laneway is activated with retail and residential components and a critical pedestrian cut-through angled towards the Seawall and adjacent parks.

Each floor plate required careful design to accommodate suites within a constrained geometry and within a very small floor plate. A 43-storey by 30-foot-wide mural by Elizabeth McIntosh highlights the building’s south façade and enlivens the City’s downtown.

Northern Junk

Located at the head of the Johnson St Bridge between Old-Town and Inner-harbour, currently isolated between Reeson Park and Bridgehead Green Park, the site offers the potential to complete a key piece of the public realm and neighbourhood revitalization. It consists of a multi-unit residential apartment building set atop the existing Northern Junk heritage warehouse buildings that are to be rehabilitated and incorporated into a mixed-use development.

It brings together active ground level uses, new housing options, and an integrated public access and extension of the public waterfront walkway.

1188 Bidwell

Mid-century Modernism in English Bay

1188 Bidwell is located at the corner of Davie and Bidwell Streets in Lower Davie Village of Vancouver’s West End. This boutique 21-storey, 108 suite high-rise is detailed to echo the mid-century Modernism that characterized the first significant development of the neighbourhood. As of a new generation of development, it pays homage to its neighbourhood through its form and white pre-cast concrete cladding system, while adding contemporary features of livability, sustainability, and community.

The rental suites are provided with outstanding views, balconies and common amenities such as a sky lounge with roof terrace overlooking English Bay; a fitness centre; children’s indoor and outdoor play areas; and urban agriculture plots. The ground level is animated by local retail space and the double-height residential lobby.
