Vancity Centre (gbb)

183 Terminal Ave Vancouver, BC

Located at the Main Street Science World SkyTrain station in Vancouver, this location gives Vancity, western Canada's largest financial institution, prominence from downtown looking east, with Vancouver's workforce literally in transit through their building to and from the city. The building form is broken into two distinct masses: one oriented to the "city" grid that relates to the string of Citygate towers facing Quebec Street, and the other on axis with the Skytrain guideway, which expresses more "high tech" aspects of the transit station. The building has been awarded the BOMA Earth Award in 1998, the BOMA TOBY Award in 1999, and BOMA BESt Level 1 in April 2005 for its green building performance. READ MORE
