Construction continues to progress at Vancouver House, one of the more watched construction sites in the City of Vancouver, if only for its unique design. The building is now above the bridge level. Construction is scheduled for completion in 2019.

Here is a construction update for Connaught in Edgemont Village in North Vancouver. The 82-unit concrete project by Grosvenor is now close to sold out and excavation is nearly complete. When completed the project will contain a Thrifty’s to replace the Super Valu grocery store that previously occupied the site.

Here is a brief photo update on the construction progress for The Exchange, a 31-store, 372,000 SF office tower at the corner of Howe Street and West Pender Street in Downtown Vancouver.
Construction got underway in early 2014 with the reconstruction of the old stock exchange building at 475 Howe Street.
The project is scheduled to be completed in 2017.

Here is the latest view of the construction site for Vancouver House, the 515 foot 52-storey condo tower being developed by Westbank.
After initially clearing the site began in December 2014, the construction is now almost at ground level.
Photos taken October 7, 2016:
Above ground construction efforts continue at the Amazing Brentwood, the redevelopment of Brentwood Town Centre Mall in Burnaby by Shape Properties. The project is one of the largest mixed-use development currently under construction in Metro Vancouver.
The project, which broke ground on its first phases in 2015, will feature 11 towers and over 6,000 units once complete. It will also include a considerable new retail component with over 250 new stores.
The first 3 towers have now sold out, representing about 1,400 units.

Construction is coming along on Cambie Star, an 8-storey condo development at the Northwest corner of Cambie Street and West King Edward Ave.
The project is being built by Yuanheng Canada, who acquired the site from Translink as one of the first Cambie Corridor land sales back in 2011 for $9,400,000, or $146 per buildable SF.
The site is located directly adjacent the King Edward Canada Line station and a portion of the building is directly above the station entrance (the station entrance itself becomes a volumetric statutory right of way). There is also a covenant on title that the developer is required to build a space for a retail bike repair facility attached to the station. There will also be ground floor commercial units fronting Cambie Street.
The site was formally approved for rezoning in late 2014 for a 59-unit, 8-storey development at a total density of 3.52 FSR. Sales began in November 2014 and the project was substantially sold out in 2015. MLS pre-sales in late 2015 show the most recent sales took place in the $825 per SF range. The site signage and project website now indicates that the project is sold out.

Here’s an update on one of Vancouver’s most unheard of projects. It’s an 18-storey residential tower on the site of what used to be the Legg Residence, a heritage mansion that was demolished in order to protect a tulip tree on the site.
The project started construction in 2014 after years of delays, and now appears to nearing completion of the exterior build.
