Finishing touches are being applied to the Deloitte Summit office tower in downtown Vancouver, with tenants preparing to move in and the sidewalks around the site reopened.
The 24-storey tower at West Georgia and Homer is scheduled to complete later this Spring. The tower is made up of clusters of four-storey, steel-framed cubes arranged around a central concrete core.
Deloitte will occupy 120,000 sq ft. of the 355,000 sq ft. building, designed by OSO of Japan and Merrick Architecture of Vancouver, and developed by Westbank Corp.
The unique tower features cantilevered office space with glass floors, and an extensive green wall on the tower façade. There is also a ground floor café, which will be a Giovane Caffè — part of the Kitchen Table Group which also operates popular Vancouver restaurants like Ask for Luigi, Di Beppe and Pourhouse.

Across the street is the massive ‘The Post’ redevelopment by QuadReal, which will include the future head offices of Amazon in Vancouver, as well as a grocery store (Loblaw CityMarket), gym, food fair and more. Construction on ‘The Post’ is progressing steadily, with completion expected next year.
