Concord Pacific has released new renderings of their upcoming Concord Metrotown development, which will include B.C.’s tallest tower.
Tower one will measure 723 ft. — taller than the current tallest building in Vancouver and all of B.C. — the Shangri-La residences and hotel, which is 659 ft. Towers two and three at Concord Metrotown will be 530 ft. and 385 ft., respectively.
The project will be on the site of the former Sears department store in Metropolis at Metrotown.
Phase one of Concord Metrotown will be called Sky Park, and will consist of the 45-storey (530 ft.) tower, designed by IBI Group. It will include 429 units, ranging from one bedrooms, up to three-bedroom and den.
The tower will sit atop a podium with 66,000 square feet of amenities including a 400 metre running loop and 6,000 square feet of indoor amenities.

Interestingly, the Concord tower may not be the tallest building in B.C. for long once it’s constructed.
Pinnacle International is pitching an 82-storey tower next to Lougheed Town Centre, but presales have not yet begun, and the proposal is early in the rezoning process.
The 82-storey tower will be flanked by two additional towers of 67 and 62 storeys.
In addition to the residential component, the development will include approximately 430,000 square feet of retail, hotel and office use.
