Nelson on the Park ( Finally more change to a design being proposed )

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.

Charles Bilash

20 years in any industry is a feat. 20 plus and successful years in the evolving, and ultra competitive Vancouver real estate game is next level. Charles Bilash achieved this milestone in 2016, but if you ask him…he’s just getting started. Armed with an insatiable appetite for knowledge, a passion for innovation, and a megawatt smile, Charles has carved out a top spot among Vancouver’s elite (and most charming) agents. And this Presidents Club alumni has no plans to give up that post.

Since day one, Charles has sought out innovative ways to break the corporate mold. His strategy? To embrace the latest technology and think outside the real estate box. And now – with Team Blu backup– he’s also harnessing the power of creative collaboration to push the industry forward (and to better service his clients – of course!)

With experience comes wisdom, and Charles has learned that a fulfilling life is a balanced one. So when client care is complete, he directs his boundless energy towards his two beautiful kids Shriya and Jayden. Loving them and living large with his wing-woman (and fellow Blu Realtor) Candice is what gives this passionate realtor purpose. And for Charles Bilash, passion + purpose = another 20 successful years.
