A new proposed development for downtown Vancouver’s West End neighbourhood could provide the skyline with a pixelated touch.
A 60-storey residential building, dubbed ‘Nelson on the Park’ by project proponents, is planned for 1075 Nelson Street – just metres away from Nelson Park and a half-block’s distance from First Baptist Church. The proposal lies within the municipal government’s West End Community Plan’s 550 foot height limit, allowing the project to eclipse the height of the nearby One Wall Centre
Few details are known about the project at this time but renderings have been published on the website of the 2015 World Architecture Festival, to be held in Singapore this November. The renderings show a slender, rectangular-shaped tower topped off by a large rooftop pool with a pixelated roof structure that provides an aesthetic transition into the sky.
The tower is designed by Singaporean-born designer Chris Doray, who is based in Vancouver and previously worked with Bing Thom Architects, as well as Vancouver-based Nick Milkovich Architects and IBI Group. The project is being spearheaded by the Wall Financial Corporation.

A German starchitect based in Beijing and Hong Kong is proposing to build a landmark residential tower on the northern fringes of downtown Vancouver’s West End neighbourhood.
Ole Scheeren’s Jenga-like design with rectangular blocks that protrude out of the upper levels is slated for 1500 West Georgia Street, sharing the site of the Rhone and Iredale-designed triangular office building which will remain. The development would be built on the eastern end of the city block on the corner of the intersection of West Georgia and Nicola streets.
Finally some global designs to break our semi-boring skyline. Lets hope the City of Vancouver supports the vision.
With its iconic design and height of 152 metres (500 feet), if approved it would effectively provide a distinctive new ‘entrance’ into Vancouver from Stanley Park and the North Shore.
“The tower opens up to embrace both city and nature in a three-dimensional sculpture, projecting the space of living outwards into the site’s surroundings, responding to the multi-directional context,” reads the architect’s description of his design. “The resulting multiple terraces generated from these horizontal shifts create both physical and emotional connectivity between the indoor and outdoor environment.”
“The design of the building presents a carefully crafted distinctive silhouette that reaches out to engage the space of the city and stands as a new beacon that activates the skyline.”
1500 West Georgia is local developer Bosa Properties’ most architecturally ambitious project to date. In addition to the unique aesthetic design elements, the 51-storey building will aim for a LEED Platinum certification with green features that include solar panels on the roof to generate power for the building’s lower commercial levels and public amenities.
The new tower will be footed by a plaza and an expanded and improved cascading water feature will replace the existing installation.
There are 235 residential units within the tower, units that will likely become trophy properties in the region’s luxury market. The overall cost of the project could exceed half a billion dollars given the intricate design’s elements and location fronting the Coal Harbour neighbourhood.
Bosa Properties purchased the city block last year with the intent of adding a residential tower to the site.
The height of the proposal follows the constraints of the City’s West End Community Plan and view cone policies, allowing the tower to become the fifth tallest building in the city and the tallest building in the immediate area.

"Picture this: A bar – decorated with day beds and funky beats – in the middle of the ocean, near one of the best reef breaks in the world. This is Cloud 9, a short speed-boat ride from Malolo island in the Mamanucas, Fiji. Once moored close to Cloudbreak, the pontoon bar has reopened on nearby Ro Ro Reef, after the police decided it was a little too close to the killer surf spot. As well as cool cocktails, the bar boasts Italian wood-fired pizza. We watch a school of barracudas leap from the cyan waters, convinced this must be a mirage."
