Description
Project publicly anounced May 2003.

Includes Vancouver's first public sculpture garden.

This building has a triangular floorplate, due to a view cone restriction that cuts right through the middle of the site, leaving only a triangle where a 183m (600ft) building is permissible.

119 Hotel Suites & 293 Residential Units
