The creativity and innovation of a multiple award–winning developer and the strength and stability of Canada’s second–largest privately held company combine to form a team that will transform the largest development site in Downtown Vancouver into a residential destination that will become the new cornerstone of Burrard Street. This highly–experienced team will ensure that Burrard Place becomes the most significant residential real estate offering in Vancouver.

A family–owned company, for more than fifty years, Reliance Properties has been involved in the acquisition, leasing and management of commercial and residential real estate throughout Metro Vancouver.

Named the Most Innovative Company of 2013 by BC Business Magazine, Reliance Properties is recognized for the creation of exceptional urban office and residential developments that have been integral to neighbourhood redevelopment and revitalization. These efforts have resulted in numerous design and heritage awards both locally and provincially.

Major Reliance Properties Awards include:
2014 UDI Awards
•  564 Beatty Street — Winner, Best Heritage
•  564 Beatty Street — Winner, Best in Show
•  West Pender Place — Winner, Best Urban High Rise
•  Burns Block — Winner, Best Affordable Housing

In addition, Reliance Properties has won numerous City of Vancouver and Province of British Columbia Heritage Awards for Burns Block, 210 Carrall Street and 55 Water Street in Gastown, Vancouver.

Reliance Properties is also a major supporter of the arts in Vancouver. Their philanthropic work includes the largest ever cash donation to an arts university in Canada — a seven million dollar contribution to help build the Reliance Theatre and the Libby Leshgold Gallery at the new Emily Carr University of Art and Design Great Northern Way Campus.

The Jim Pattison Group has had a significant presence in City of Vancouver and the Province of British Columbia for more than fifty years. Headquartered in Vancouver, The Jim Pattison Group is the second–largest private company in Canada, with annual sales of over $8.4 billion and more than 39,000 employees in 545 locations worldwide.

The Jim Pattison Group operates in the automotive, agriculture, media, packaging, food and beverage, magazine distribution, entertainment, export, and financial industries.

The Jim Pattison Real Estate Group owns and manages a portfolio of over 12 million square feet of real estate throughout Canada and the United States. The Real Estate Group’s core activities include development, construction, property management, and investment in a wide variety of commercial and residential real estate projects.

At Burrard Place, the experience and expertise gained from more than fifty–years as an industry leader makes the Jim Pattison Group the ideal partner to create a development that will help shape the future of Vancouver and become a lasting legacy on the Downtown Vancouver skyline.

When Skyfront at Burrard Place breaks ground as expected at the end of next year, the multi-tower development will be the largest project of its kind in downtown Vancouver since the redevelopment of the Woodward’s building completed in Gastown in 2009, the project developers say.

The site situated within Burrard, Hornby and Drake streets will eventually give rise to two residential towers, including one that will stand 54-storeys, making it the third-tallest tower in downtown Vancouver after the Shangri-La and Trump Tower. It would also be the largest real estate project in the Jim Pattison Group stable of assets.

The $500-million mixed-use development, co-developed by the Pattison Group and Reliance Properties Ltd., will include more than 800 residential units, including 87 market rental units, and a third 13-storey office tower with 235,000 sq. ft. of space for rent and for sale.

The Skyfront project comes amid a frenzy of downtown tower construction that is transforming the Vancouver skyline, including several towers with roughly 2.2 million sq. ft. of new office space that has real estate experts scratching their heads about whether there will be enough commercial tenants to fill the space.

But Jon Stovell, of Reliance Properties, says the project’s residential component is the driving vision, and he thinks Skyfront will emerge as demand for homes in Vancouver remains at an all-world premium.

The towers will stand out at that location, he noted. “That height is very uncharacteristic for that part of the city,” he said. “The big towers like Shangri-La and Trump are in the downtown core amid all the other tall buildings.”

Michael Lee, vice-president of Jim Pattison Developments, echoed that the plethora of new large-scale downtown builds isn’t a deterrent.

“Whether it’s today or tomorrow, we don’t see that demand really changing, maybe other than just continuing to increase,” Lee said. “So right now we just think it’s the right time.”

He said the Pattison Group would retain the Toyota car dealership that stood at the intersection of Burrard and Drake streets for 42 years. “It will be three levels above grade and up to five levels below grade,” he said.

The space is ripe for a major upgrade, Lee said. “Our location, with the car dealership and the surface lot, was probably the worst asset in the neighbourhood so we think there is tremendous opportunity to help upgrade the area.”

Stovell said Burrard Place represents one of only six build sites approved by city planners that will be permitted to accommodate towers that tall. “These buildings were meant to have major architectural contributions to the city skyline, [and] have very high sustainability requirements in terms of their environmental footprint.”

The project, which launched in 2009, has now completed the rezoning process and on Monday received the required development permit from the city to move forward.

“This is probably the largest project in the downtown right now,” Stovell said. “It’s just around a million square feet and also the third-tallest building in the city after Shangri-La and Trump, at 540 feet.”

He said Skyfront rivals the Woodward’s redevelopment in magnitude, potential occupancy mix, and its expected effect on a neighbourhood.

Skyfront would rise about 30 stories higher than any of the buildings that surround it and would include an integrated mix of uses, including a grocery store, and community amenity contributions worth about $16 million. “To see a building like that in the south shore is really going to be a catalyst to a huge amount of change in that area,” Stovell said.

The latest steps for Burrard Place also come amid the decision in recent weeks to shutter and re-locate the nearby aging St. Paul’s hospital to a vacant plot of land near Main Street and Terminal Avenue — which could usher in even more high-density development along the south end of Burrard Street.

“We don’t know what’s going to happen there,” Stovell said of the current St. Paul’s location. “It’s going to take some time but it’s still a very interesting outcome.”

Stovell said the current explosion of available downtown office space wouldn’t deter their vision or strategy.

“We have a very large office portfolio already in our company,” he said, noting that the leasable office component is relatively small at about 136,000 sq. ft. of the total office component. “We are able to move our tenants through our portfolio as we grow and offer them the ability to give up a lease in an old building of ours and move into a larger space.”

He said pre-leasing wouldn’t begin until construction starts, which is expected to be in January 2016.

We first posted this project nearly four years ago. The project was rezoned in 2014, and now the final design for the first tower has been past the Urban Design Panel. The project has a revised name – it used to be Burrard Gateway.

There will be two residential towers, office and retail on the Downtown Toyota site. A high building review was held for a 525 foot tower, and now the scheme has been further refined. the Urban Design Panel have already reviewed and supported the previous design.

In April 2011 the first version of the tower failed to show “architectural creativity and excellence, while making a significant contribution to the beauty and visual power of the city’s skyline”. A revised version got a more positive reception, and now we can see what the latest model for the scheme looks like. Overall there are over 800 units, mostly condo but also 87 rental units. Only the taller 54 storey tower is proposed in the first phase, with a grid design on one corner slightly reminiscent of the Bjark Ingles designed tower proposed not too far away on Howe Street

The biggest change to the project was to the office component. While IBI/HB have designed the residential towers, Bing Thom Architects totally redesigned the Burrard Street office building. It incorporates the 3-storey Toyota dealership into an extraordinarily curved and twisted office tower that will, when it gets built, be one of the most exciting building seen in the city in years.

The office should be going forward soon, and recent renders don’t show any significant difference. The second tower may change more, as it included a ‘busy’ screen elements that seem to no longer feature on the first tower (where they were a far less prominent part of the design in the first place). Apparently a third residential tower might be in the works as well, as Reliance Properties are said to have secured the 7-11 building at the northern end of the Hornby Street block and have indicated they want to build a tower of (very) micro suites.
