VANCOUVER | Vancouver House | 152 M | 52 FLOORS

This is Vancouver House, which has already become a fan favourite in Vancouver (and even within the Canada section).

It is being built along the west side of the Granville Street Bridge on the downtown peninsula. When complete it will act as a "Gateway" tower into downtown.

All of these pics are taken by our members Klazu and mcminsen on the Vancouver section.

A couple renders

And the construction so far as of this month

Yeah, and its position will make it very prominent looking from the south.

An update from a couple days ago:

A quick update, around 9 more floors to go. Making its mark on the south shore skyline.

Thank god for this building. Vancouver is nice, but it must be the most sterile, uninspiring city aesthetically that I've ever been to. good to have a building like this mixing things up.

Vancouver proposals have really turned things around over the last couple years, starting with this tower but several more fantastic towers have started site prep / are soon to start construction.

This is my personal favourite:

Gawd, I love a BIG.DK project... This one is turning out to the best addition to the skyline in decades. Love that this one and Telus Sky in Calgary are rising at the same time... Both really cool projects...

Is there a protective paper coating on the metal panels?

Another big update.

Only 2 more floors to go.

This tower really is becoming a landmark for the False Creek Skyline.

Such a great addition to the skyline. Is that brick one-story shanty in the last picture not part of the project?

I believe it is an orphaned property.

Not sure what will happen to it.

I really want to like this tower, but it hurts my brain to look at it
I sincerely hope this is one of those buildings that looks better in person because I just can't get into it through the pictures

Okay! So I was in town for the first two weeks of August.

Took hundreds and hundreds of pictures throughout Van and BC.

Editing them now and here is the first batch I am posting.

No better way to start than the beautiful Vancouver House.

Was so happy after seeing all the great updates on here to photograph it with my own camera.
