Project DescriptionFROM THE AIBC:
The central challenge of 564 Beatty Street for Bruce Carscadden Architect, IBI Group and Robert Leshgold was one of density. Under-utilized and near abandoned for decades, the project sought to reimagine and capitalize on its position at the crossroads of Vancouver's Downtown Eastside, new emerging civic precinct and significant arterial transit station. The project corrected the incomplete 2006 introduction of the Keefer Steps which were a kernel of an urban design idea. The renewed 564 Beatty addresses this with new intense focus including fenestration, restaurant patio and additional building entrance.
