FIRST LOOK: Renderings of new office tower at West Georgia and Richards
The central business district in downtown Vancouver continues to shift eastward, with another new office tower in the works, this time at West Georgia and Richards.
Renderings have surfaced for a new office tower at 450 West Georgia, which is currently used as a parking lot for Car2Go car-sharing vehicles.
The property is sandwiched between the TELUS Garden office tower to the west, and Westbank and ALLIED’s new office tower to the east — currently under construction.
There’s no rezoning or development proposal filed for the site yet, so the project may still be a few months away from a formal application.
One block away, Amazon is reportedly planning to triple the size of its office space in the redevelopment of the former post office, known as The Post. The Globe and Mail reported exclusively last week that the tech giant plans to lease both office towers at the development, which could house up to 10,000 office workers.
The tech giant is also said to be looking for even more space in downtown Vancouver — which could make this upcoming office tower a perfect fit.
