Here’s a first look at Reliance Properties’ new purpose-built rental tower coming to the corner of Davie and Hornby in Vancouver’s West End.
The 25-storey tower will replace the existing 7/11 convenience store at 902 Davie Street, and is adjacent to Reliance’s Burrard Place development.
The design is modelled after the snowy mountain peaks of The Lions. Precast concrete panels with a sand-blasted finish will be the primary building envelope material — unique in downtown Vancouver architecture.
It’s important to note these renderings are only conceptual, and no formal rezoning or development applications have been filed with the City of Vancouver.
The tower will contain 158 units ranging from studios to three bedrooms. There will also be approximately 4,400 sq ft. of retail on the ground floor, and five floors of office space (27,500 sq ft.)
A modest 79 parking stalls will serve residential, office and retail tenants, plus 213 bicycle stalls.
The architects are Neil M. Denari Architects, Inc. of Los Angeles and Bingham+Hill Architects of Vancouver.
