From its inception, One Burrard Place was meant to be a Vancouver landmark to provide a focal point for people entering downtown via the Burrard Street Bridge. At 550 feet, it will be the third tallest tower in Vancouver behind Shangri-La and Trump Tower at 646 feet and 616 feet, respectively. One Burrard Place’s physical presence on our skyline will be accentuated by it being on one of the higher points of land on the downtown peninsula. Its landmark status, stately homes, and phenomenal amenities make it a special address.
Burrard Place is a collection of 2 residential and 1 commercial buildings encompassing more than a city block. Two Burrard Place, the other residential tower, will be approximately 35 levels and adjacent to One Burrard Place along Hornby Street. An office and retail building of approximately 13 levels will be on Burrard Street which will see the return of the Toyota dealership that was previously there.
The two residential towers were originally intended to have the same style of façade. While Burrard Place One was being constructed, the second residential tower underwent an extensive redesign so now each of the 3 buildings will have markedly different façades.
While One Burrard Place will reach 55 levels high, floor numbering will reach 62 as the numbering excludes floors 4, 13, 14, 24, 34, 44, and 54. Up to and including level 6 will be a mixture of commercial, retail spaces, and a private dining area. Level 7 will host most of the phenomenal amenities. Floors 8 and 9 will be 50 rental residences. Floor 10 has a rooftop deck and the start of the residential strata lots, which continue skyward to the penthouses.
The design team have expanded the concept of the Vancouver executive lifestyle. The private Club One will encompass 30,000 square feet and include a fitness centre, full-sized pool, hot tub, sauna, steam room, lounges, private dining facilities, wine cellars and tasting lounge, and a music room. It is intended that residents will be able to employ professionals within the Burrard Place Club One Star Services Team, including a chef, butler concierge, pastry chef, event planner, fashion consultant, DJ, wine services, and mixologist.
Residents of both residential towers with enjoy the same amenities with those living in Two Burrard Place gaining access via the skybridge.

Studio, one bedroom, and two bedroom residences are found up to floor 46 while there are only two bedroom and larger residences on floor 47 and higher. Higher homes will have expansive views and all of the residences will have outdoor spaces. Lower floors have up to 11 residences and, as with most buildings, the number of units per floor tapers off as you proceed up the building.
The 394 market residencies are projected to include:
- 73 studio homes
- 84 one bedroom homes

The beautifully finished homes were available in Natural or Grey colour pallets and have wide-plank flooring throughout the main living spaces and tile in bathrooms.

Reliance Holdings – You may not have heard about them but they are a prominent Vancouver developer and building owner. Two of their projects are favourites of mine: West Pender Place and 564 Beatty Street, home to Chambar and an accomplished medley of heritage and modern.
The building is located a short walk to amenities in Yaletown, Downtown, and the West End. Options are plentiful with a 5-10 minute walk. For incredible convenience, as of June 2018, a Meinhardt is projected to be a future occupant of the Burrard Place commercial space.
You can walk to the following amenities in under 5 minutes:
- Meinhardt (to be built within Burrard Place)
- Musette Cafe
- St. Paul’s Hospital
You can walk to the following amenities in 5-10 minutes:
- Choices Markets

One Burrard Place leads the transformation of this block and there are another 3 buildings scheduled,. Two of the buildings will complete the Burrard Place development and the third residential tower is planned for where the 7Eleven is on Davie Street. The third tower is a development of Reliance Properties, one of the Burrard Place partners.
There has been interest in redeveloping Anchor Point, the 3 brown low-rise buildings across Drake street, and it seems likely that eventually they will be replaced. Presumably, the resulting towers would not rise as high as One Burrard Place to not detract from it being a focal point from the Burrard bridge.
There is also a City plan to remove the loops from the Granville Street bridge. Exactly when depends on city priorities. Once removed, they will be replaced with a variety of buildings.
