EXCITING NEWS – Approved Downtown Vancouver Telus Garden Mega Project by Henriquez Partners Architects & Westbank Developers – 22 Storey Office Tower plus 44 Storey Telus Garden Vancouver Condo High-Rise

powered by Typeform

Introducing the new Telus Garden Vancouver real estate development proposal.

Exciting New Telus Garden Vancouver Real Estate Development

One of the knocks on the downtown Vancouver skyline is that most of the office towers and residential high-rises look too similar, with green/marine glass and a typical rectangular shape. Well, Vancouverites can celebrate the newly proposed Downtown Vancouver Telus Garden towers development which will see a planned $750 million project at 520 West Georgia Street Vancouver. The new Vancouver Telus Garden mega development will not only transform the entire landscape and skyline, but also bring about unique architecture to the downtown core that is sorely needed. The proposal and unveiling of this master planned project came out in early March to huge fanfare, and it was named Telus Garden Vancouver real estate development as it will be the future headquarters for the Canadian Telus telecommunications company. The project itself will be located in a large area that is bound by Seymour, Richards, Robson and Georgia Street and Telus itself owns this land. The team surrounding the new Telus Garden Vancouver Downtown project includes Telus itself, as well as Westbank Corp and Gregory Henriquez of Henriquez Partners Architects. Both of these companies also worked on the revitalization of the downtown Vancouver Woodwards District including the residential towers and commercial component. The downtown Vancouver Telus Garden towers will begin construction later in the Fall 2011 and will be completed sometime in 2015 if the proposal is approved and there are no construction delays. Eventually, the Vancouver Telus Garden commercial tower will be home to over one thousand Telus employees and it will become the national headquarters for this growing telecommunications company. The developer is Ian Gillespie and the project also has the backing of Vancouver’s mayor, Gregor Robertson.

The New Vancouver Telus Garden Condo Tower

As part of the one million square foot development along Georgia Street in downtown Vancouver, the new Telus Garden condos will be situated in a striking landmark building of 44 storeys in height. Called Telus Garden condos, these downtown Vancouver condominiums will radically transform this part of the downtown core with advanced environmental stewardship, quality construction and LEED Gold standards. It is expected that the pre-sale Vancouver Telus Garden condo tower will be home to about 500 suites that will be market units. Also, it is assumed that both the office tower and residential high-rise components will be completed together as a master planned community and in a single launch in 2015. The masterplanned project mimics the success of the Woodwards District community development that saw the same team create and re-develop a historic part of town into a vibrant residential and commercial neighbourhood. Now, Telus Garden Vancouver real estate development will try to do the same with a great mix of both commercial/office space in addition to retail and residential components. Business in Vancouver noted back in November 2010 that a large telecommunications company was on the verge of announcing a grand plan for a mixed use project in downtown, and now, it has been confirmed. The new Vancouver Telus Garden condos will have energy efficient heat recovery systems, energy and water efficient features, solar arrays, green rooftop decks and many other green features for environmental protection. Telus Garden condos will be one of very few downtown Vancouver condo towers to be built with LEED Gold standards. However, due to the increase in height of the residential component, a public hearing is set for Summer 2011 before approval of the rezoning of the land.

The Telus Garden Office Tower

Built with LEED Platinum standards, the downtown Vancouver Telus Garden office tower will be the first of its kind in all of Canada. Featuring over 500,000 square feet in office space, the new office tower will become the official national headquarters for Telus itself and will be designed to meet internationally recognized standards for environmental sustainability. It will become the most technologically and environmentally advanced master planned project sites in Canada and in the world once complete. As with the condo high-rise, the Telus Garden office tower will also be designed by Henriquez Partners Architect firm and it will be built by Westbank Corp Developers. It’s a great proposal for the City of Vancouver as it keeps one of the largest telecommunication companies in the downtown core while benefiting from the mixed use features of the site. LEED Platinum standards will also mean that Telus employees (which may eventually number 1,000 at this office tower) will be working in one of the cleanest and most energy/water efficient offices in the country. The green work environment inside also spreads outside, with retail and transportation just outside your door. Mega projects of this size don’t usually happen in downtown Vancouver real estate market, mainly because there are not many parcels of land this big left to develop. The office space and land is located at the crossroads between Georgia, Robson Street, Seymour and Richards. The project cost is around $750M but it will also bring millions of doors into the local economy. The architectural landmark high-rises will consume almost 30% less energy due to its leading LEED standards design and will also feature over 10,000 square feet of green roofs and two elevated roof forests.
