This project in the heart of Mt. Pleasant seeks to set a new standard in design sophistication in the area. Already recognized as one of Vancouver’s most desirable districts, this project is perched on one of the most coveted view sites in the City. The urban context is bustling with some of the best bohemian restaurants and trendy bars. The site is also located on the Broadway/Main/Kingsway intersection and is a pivot site as the diagonal of Kingsway transitions to the orthogonal grid of Main Street. The massing approach responds to the flatiron condition of the site with strong diagonals setting the parti for the project. Materials are proposed in architectural concrete and curtain wall. The rotation of the massing from diagonal to orthogonal creates tension in the structure that is expressive in the energy of the project. Roof decks offer spectacularly appointed outdoor garden areas. Formerly knows as FOCAL.

Only on Main Street could you find a place like Paragon. A boutique 9 storey concrete development located right on the corner of Main and 7th, steps to delicious eateries, independent retailers and eclectic shops. Designed to maximize the sweeping hilltop views, these junior-one, one, two and three bedroom homes priced starting from the mid-200’s have been mindfully positioned to take advantage of the various outlooks – over half the homes (even those on the lower floors) have awe-inspiring views of downtown and the North Shore Mountains.
Arno Matis Architecture has asked city hall to rezone a long-time car lot at 2290 Main Street, at the corner of East 7th Avenue, for a mixed-used building with 89 residential units. Included in its submission is an account of some of the highlights of Mount Pleasant’s past after European settlement, starting in the late 1850s, when pioneers from B.C.’s gold-rush era came to the area. Years later, a resident named the spot in honour of her birthplace in Ireland, and Mount Pleasant was born.
