A waterfront backdrop, Pendrell contributes critical rentals to Vancouver’s densely populated West End. This 21-storey tower comprises two blocks, animated with traditional local architectural elements including concrete construction and ribbon windows. A unifying steel frame, recalling cargo ships in the nearby bay, ties these elements together and is punctuated with wooden-slatted privacy screens. View corridors to neighbouring parks and for adjacent towers are carefully maintained. Public art, “Still Standing” by Samuel Roy-Bois, evokes cedar shake cottages historically seen in the area.
