The office building façade will consist of broad horizontal bands of alternating glass and copper/bronze-tinted metal.

The Vivagrand project will also include a public, 37 space childcare facility and a “youth centre,” although it’s unclear exactly what that means.

There will be four levels of underground parking, with 303 vehicle stalls and 536 class A bicycle parking spaces.

A community open house will be held Wednesday, February 5, 2020, from 5:00-7:30 p.m. at the Peretz Centre at 6184 Ash Street, Vancouver.
