Willingdon Park Phases 8-9

Back

Sustainability at work.

Phases 8 and 9 of the Willingdon Park office complex are the culmination of 25 years of design and development of one of Metro Vancouver’s most significant and sustainable business campuses. The project included architectural design, comprehensive master planning, rezoning and subdivision, development guidelines, parking strategies and hotel feasibility for over 1,000,000 square feet of premier, high tech office space. International tenants have included Motorola, eBay, Ericsson and Alcatel.

Constructed from cast-in-place concrete and clad in tinted clear glass and composite aluminum paneling, phases 8 and 9 were designed to provide mirrored sentry-like geometries framing a central landscaped amenity courtyard flanked by food and service retail. Features include total internal reflectance light spires rising 30 feet above the adjacent courtyard walls, with shorter spires highlighting the massive arches that frame each building entrance. Vaulted two-storey wood and glass lobbies are also featured.

Phase 8 and 9 possess many sustainable elements and amenities for an active business community creating a campus-like feel. The building itself is a strong architectural statement framed by massive arches and attractive light spires, a modern office environment for the today’s changing business world.
