MNP Tower named the NAIOP’s Office Project of the Year

MNP Tower was recently named by the NAIOP, the Commercial Real Estate Development Association, as their Office Project of the Year.

A landmark, sustainable boutique office building, MNP Tower provides 270,000 square feet of ‘AAA’ office space along the Vancouver waterfront. With its unique curvilinear geometry, the building has a striking presence on the city’s skyline while thoughtfully negotiating its context, which includes the Marine Building, one of Vancouver’s most significant heritage buildings.

The building also marks a turning point for downtown Vancouver as one of the first new buildings launched in the area’s most recent development cycle. The building’s impact is apparent not only in rising rents and occupancy rates in the surrounding development complex, but also in the revitalization of nearby restaurants and retail outlets.

In addition to NAIOP Project of the Year, MNP Tower has also been honored with several other awards, including the Special Jury Award for Contextual Response in Urban Design for The City of Vancouver Urban Design Award and the Lieutenant Governor Merit Award from the Architectural Institute of British Columbia.
