Waterfront Tower will be a new mixed use building located in Vancouver on Cordova Street immediately east of The Station Building and west of the Landing. The building sits on an 82,365 sq. ft. site between two significant heritage buildings representing the history and culture of the surrounding Gastown area. The 26-storey mixed-use tower will offer 22 floors of office space and a total of 33,000 sq. ft. of rentable commercial and retail space. The 127 metre tall building is envisioned as an origami-like tower that will feature a public plaza shared by Waterfront Station. The project is comprised of an angular glass tower that accommodates the small footprint and existing heritage building by tapering down to a pyramid entrance and a curved art wall. Waterfront Tower is currently being designed in accordance with LEED CS, although it will surpass LEED requirements. The project is also targeting an estimated water use reduction of over 35% compared to the LEED baseline and will feature improved roof and wall R-values, improved glazing U-values, improved lighting power densities, and overall improved lighting controls.
