The distinctive building was designed by omb – office of mcfarlane biggar architects + designers for Rize Alliance, who is also developing The Onyx office tower across the street, next to the Pacific Central train station.

The concept behind The Grid is described by the architects as follows:

The intention for 306 Terminal is to create a flexible space for manufacturers and entrepreneurs to best situate themselves to attract talented makers and thinkers into the city where they can provide innovative and commutable working communities while servicing their clientele within the convenience of city limits.

The natural terracotta tile cladding is intended to resonate with the industrial heritage of the neighbourhood while alluding to the modernization of industry yet remaining authentic, memorable and iconic.

The building is targeting LEED Platinum certification.
