A new proposed development for downtown Vancouver’s West End neighbourhood could provide the skyline with a pixelated touch.

A 60-storey residential building, dubbed ‘Nelson on the Park’ by project proponents, is planned for 1075 Nelson Street – just metres away from Nelson Park and a half-block’s distance from First Baptist Church. The proposal lies within the municipal government’s West End Community Plan’s 550 foot height limit, allowing the project to eclipse the height of the nearby One Wall Centre.

Few details are known about the project at this time but renderings have been published on the website of the 2015 World Architecture Festival, to be held in Singapore this November. Read more…
