This 42-storey tower is carved by two emphatic scoops that form deep balconies. In both instances, the carvings create semi-enclosures that strengthen their relations to the street and to the views. Estimated to be completed in 2020, the tower will be a standout in Vancouver.The orthogonal tower is carved in such a way that its silhouette constantly changes, creating illusionary profiles of arching cantilevers. The tower meets the ground with two intersecting domes that embrace Alberni and Cardero Street. Under the arching structures, an extensive moss garden defines the entrance and flows to the swimming pool above. The facade of the tower will have a combination of glass and polished anodized aluminum that will provide the structure with an almost chequered appearance.
