Urban Design Panel sets special review for curvy 54-storey Vancouver tower


Attend the Urban Design Panel.
The meeting was scheduled for February 20 at 3 pm at City Hall.

Excerpt: 

Local and international architects have been invited to take part in a special review for a proposed Vancouver high-rise.

The Urban Design Panel has set a meeting on Tuesday (February 20) to evaluate the design of a 54-storey tower at the north end of Granville Bridge.

The development at 601 Beach Crescent, a property that used to be owned by the City of Vancouver, is subject to a rezoning application.

In its agenda posted online ahead of the meeting next week, the Urban Design Panel listed the following local architects among the guest panelists: Peter Cardew of Peter Cardew Archiects, Karen Marler of HCMA Architecture + Design, and Mark Ostry of Acton Ostry Architects.

Two international architects will also take part in the discussions: Laura Jimenez of the Chicago-based Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture, and Robin Williams of the Los Angeles- and New York City-based Morphosis Architect.

A rezoning application was filed last year by GBL Architects Ltd. on behalf of Pinnacle.
