969 Burrard Street
THE BUTTERFLY - by Westbank and Bing Thom Architects will be a majestic 57 storey butterfly-shaped building in the heart of downtown Vancouver (Burrard & Nelson). Walk to Granville Street entertainment central, Robson Street shopping & restaurants, Pacific Centre, Vancouver City Centre Skytrain Station and much more!
The Butterfly will be a grand 556 feet luxury residential tower involving heritage restoration and expansion of one of Vancouver’s most historic churches. The podium levels and galleria will be closely integrated with the heritage church, which provides expanded community program spaces, daycare, offices and affordable rental housing. On each level of the residential tower, there will be outdoor garden spaces that allow neighbours to interact socially. These outdoor breezeways will contribute to significant energy reductions by encouraging natural ventilation and reducing the tower’s reliance on conditioned circulation spaces and artificial lighting. The unique form of the tower will provide Vancouver with a bold new iconic landmark that highlights the highpoint of the downtown peninsula and the historic gateway into the West End.
