Sold out in less than a week at record prices, 320 Granville is distinguished by an undulating language that is rich in movement and shapes both the building’s aesthetic expression and establishes it as stunning addition to the Vancouver skyline.
The centerpiece of the city’s developing Central Waterfront Hub, Vancouver’s newest AAA office tower is inspired by its position as a link between downtown and the waterfront. The project brings cutting-edge, transit-oriented, AAA office space to Waterfront Station, a vibrant hub and where several modes of transportation meet by rail, water, street and air. Within walking distance to historic Gastown, the development enhances the pedestrian experience at its base, creating a more intimate connection to the city.
Adding a cascading element to the city’s skyline, the design of 320 Granville reflects the unique qualities of its site, a celebration of connectivity and accessibility, and a relationship to its architectural context and the adjacent Vancouver Harbour. Stacked ribbons reflect the neighboring buildings’ stone and rectilinear shapes, creating a dynamic dialogue, while the gently curved glass walls ripple gently throughout the building’s height, the effect becoming more pronounced as the tower reaches to the sky. A compelling, sculpted relationship between the ground plane and tower is apparent with terraced landscaping and an interior lobby that emulates the flow and movement of the exterior. Amenities include a café adjacent to the lobby and a rooftop garden, the design theme embedded in the form and experience of each.
