The conceptual design for a new Vancouver Art Gallery has been released, and it’s a head-turner.

The 12-storey gallery rises from its new home adjacent the Queen Elizabeth Theatre in a series of boxy tiers – like a jumble of gift boxes waiting to be unwrapped. The whole structure sits on four, stilt-like pillars. Not to mention, it’s covered mostly in wood – a stark contrast from the mirrored glass and steel buildings that dominate Vancouver’s downtown core.

The 310,000-square-foot building is aiming to become the new home of the Vancouver Art Gallery, which has outgrown its long-time home on Hornby and Georgia Streets downtown. Construction is planned to start in 2017, with a 2021 opening date. Continue reading:

Sneak Preview of Plans for Nordstrom Store in Vancouver

Last week, reports came out that high-end department store Nordstrom was officially  moving into the prime downtown real estate currently occupied by Sears.

Just one problem.  The Sears building is one of the ugliest in Vancouver – a giant, off-white marshmallow with almost no windows that fills a whole city block.  Not exactly the nicest digs for a glitzy retailer like Nordstrom.

Now, however, it looks like the building’s days are numbered.  Plans were revealed this week for what the new Nordstrom store will look like – and it’s anything but a giant marshmallow.  Continue reading:
