Rogers Arena Towers Unveiled

Yesterday evening was the first open house for the soon to be developed Rogers Arena towers. The site comprises of two office/residential towers, one residential only tower and one to developed in the future over the existing Skytrain line. It also looks as though the development is anticipating the viaducts will not remain as they don’t interact with the viaducts, except for the West Tower. We’ll know the fate of the viaducts in the near future.

The three new buildings are 104, 100 and 97 m in height. The proposal will include 39 179.9 m² of residential density and 2 600 m² of new commercial density. The proposal includes 488 residential units, 309 parking spaces, and five loading spaces.

As of right now the West Tower which will be an office/condo mix (originally supposed to be all condo) is slated to begin construction in April. The East Tower will now also have a large office component to it, transferred from the West Tower.

The South Tower will be the second one to be built and will be all residential.

The East Tower will be the last in the building cycle. The bottom 5 floors will house arena commercial space with 7 floors of additional commercial floors. The rest will be residential

Here are some renderings and building models from yesterday’s open house. The Aquilini’s are still pursuing the community centre with public ice rink and more at no cost to the taxpayers.

Design is slightly bland.

Should be three towers but instead of the one across the road, it should be where the "future development" is.

so i guess rogers users arent suppose to have data on their phones/tablets?

Bell wants to roll out TV on mobile, so maybe Rogers wants in on it and roll it on their "LTE" network... and viola, you have internet and TV on rogers...

Not really a fan, kinda overshadows Rogers Arena. It looks like the buildings are four dudes and Rogers arena is getting gangbanged from all sides.

oh good! I always thought Vancouver needed a few more boring condo towers squished into tiny, odd shaped pieces of land.

Do the condos come with season tickets? If so, I want to be in the east tower, take the elevator to the game, and during intermission go back to my condo for some drinks!

Isn't the Aquilini family worth over $5 billion? That's like at par with Pattison.

The project is by the Aquillini Family. They got a great deal when they bought the canucks, GM place and the land around the stadium at that time.

There was talks and prior proposals for 4 towers - looks like only 3 will materialize as of yesterday and the other one for future development.

It will be interesting to see what the City of Vancouver decides to do with the Viaducts. Personally I like them for ease of travel in and out of Downtown. But in reality they are quite the eyesore and absolute waste of space.

I think it's great that Stadium and Tinseltown area will be further densified while continue with a build out of Downtown Vancouver.

Any RS'er follow the different proposals in the surrounding area? There are a few prominent developers that have acquired many sites in Chinatown in the last year and have proposed to build a minimum 15-20 stories (approx 200 suites) in a few key sites.
