BentallGreenOak, formerly known as Bentall Kennedy, is breaking ground on their upcoming 32-storey office tower in downtown Vancouver, known as B6.
B6 by BentallGreenOak will bring 534,000 square feet or 32 floors of AAA office space to market by February 2023. The floors are virtually column-free, and tenants with offices on two floors will have the option of an inter-floor staircase.
The tower is set to be in the company of the city’s most efficient office towers to-date – designed to meet WIRED, WELL and LEED Gold Certifications.

“The entire city is within reach at B6 — it offers its tenants a connected environment both indoors and outdoors,” says Tony Astles, managing partner and head of Canadian real estate services for BentallGreenOak. “Designed for efficiency, B6 is wrapped with sustainable features like triple-glazed windows and efficient mechanical systems for a more healthy and energy-efficient experience for our tenants.”
Amenities include two common “Parks in the Sky” boardrooms on the 32nd floor with connected WiFi, a penthouse conference centre, private three-storey fitness facility for tenants and extensive “hotel quality” end-of-trip facilities for bikers and runners.
Construction has begun on the site at 1090 West Pender site and B6 is using time-lapse video to offer live updates. BentallGreenOak has announced they will be moving into the new tower once completed.
