1166 West Pender will house 31 floors of office space, blending innovative design and civic enhancement. The building brings strategic densification to the area, adding 360,000 square feet of office space and commercial amenities to a constrained site in the downtown Coal Harbour neighbourhood. Replacing an existing 11-storey office tower, the sinuous 31-storey tower will introduce a strong architectural presence and enhance the public realm. Convex and concave exterior walls respond to the contours of the adjacent buildings to form an undulating body wrapped in ceramic-fritted curtain wall glazing. 1166 West Pender will be a welcomed addition to this bustling Vancouver neighbourhood, providing a sustainable, visually compelling design while offering first-rate commercial spaces and enlivening the neighbourhood.

Situated at the border between a district of office towers and a neighbourhood of slender residential high-rises, the proposed design for 1166 West Pender responds to its unique location with varied floor plates and a distinct shape. The tower deviates from a typical rectangular form by dropping downwards in a deep wedge shape along the West Pender Street façade.

Reducing shadow impact to the surrounding public realm while maintaining height, the floorplates at the top of the building are scaled down. The sloping façade features rooftop garden terraces that step down along the north-east corner of the tower.
