Vancouver Promotes Construction of Tallest Sustainable Office Tower

August 15, 2013

Real Estate Investment company Credit Suisse is developing a $200 million construction project in downtown Vancouver and the city is promoting it as the tallest sustainable office tower in the world. 

Renowned architect Harry Gugger (the man behind the Bird’s Nest Stadium in Beijing and the renovation of London’s Tate Modern Gallery) is designing the building, which will consume an estimated 50 percent of the energy load of traditional office building of comparable size.

Herbert Meier, Credit Suisse’s Director of Real Estate Asset Management was quoted as saying, "We believe in Vancouver's economy and its future.  We believe in supporting the City of Vancouver's vision to become the world's 'greenest' city by 2020."

The development project also includes the renovation and restoration of the adjacent Old Stock Exchange building and is expected to be complete in 2017.
