Cadillac Fairview submitted a development permit application for a proposed 26-story office tower in Vancouver, BC. The Crystal at Waterfront Square is located at 555 West Cordova, and will encompassing a new design to reconfigure the building and make better use of the site.
The reconfiguration allows for 85% of a current surface parking lot to be repurposed as an open civic square, which will give the community unimpeded harbor and mountain views. Cadillac Fairview hopes to commence construction in 2020, following municipal approvals.
Cadillac Fairview’s Tom Knoepfel says, “The Crystal at Waterfront Square is another example of Cadillac Fairview’s commitment to designing and operating a world-class building that contributes to a vibrant and sustainable city.”
Among the sustainable features to achieve WELL and LEED Platinum certifications are carbon neutral operating systems; zero new parking stalls created; direct connectivity to Waterfront Station, the largest multi-modal transit hub in Vancouver; bicycle storage units with shower/change rooms, and onsite maintenance facilities.
