The Butterfly by Westbank may be the most beautiful residential tower in downtown Vancouver to date, on track for completion in 2023.
First Baptist Church Vancouver
Westbank’s ambitious condo and social housing proposal for the site of the First United Church at Burrard and Nelson streets is set to make a major impact on downtown Vancouver’s skyline. Not to worry heritage lovers, the church will be restored and seismically upgraded. The new condo tower appears to blend into the church, and is even inspired by it with its ‘organ pipe’ design.
An astute reader spotted models at city hall of Westbank’s “divine” tower proposal for the First Baptist Church on Burrard at Nelson street.
The upcoming 56 storey tower will be high-end, aimed at the luxury market with mostly two bedroom and larger units. Penthouses will make a splash with rooftop pools and hot tubs. Buyers can expect prices per square foot similar to Vancouver House, another luxury development, also by Westbank.
