A contemporary landmark in Vancouver’s most prestigious waterfront neighborhood, the dramatic, faceted towers of West Pender Place bring true modernist architecture to Coal Harbour.

Named Best Urban High Rise at the 2012 Urban Development Institute Awards for Excellence, West Pender Place has become a significant architectural landmark in Vancouver’s most prestigious waterfront neighbourhood and a striking addition to the city skyline.

From street level water features to eco-friendly roof decks, West Pender Place combines a modernist aesthetic with state of the art design and materials.

Floor to ceiling windows and curtain wall construction create the faceted towers that have become a significant part of Coal Harbour skyline.

High-efficiency glazing, geothermal heating and ample rooftop greenscaping contribute to a highly functional, energy-efficient, tower design. And by night, programmable LED lights create a subtle shifting colour wash,transforming a slender vertical ribbon into a dynamic work of art.

Two angled glass towers and a five-storey podium make up the three buildings of West Pender Place. The strata condominium homes at West Pender Place feature the finest fixtures and finishes available, as well as some of the most spectacular city and mountain views in Vancouver.
