This long-awaited rezoning for the Central Heat site on Beatty Street has now been submitted. The 17 storey office building is designed by BIG with HMCA Architecture & Design for Westbank, with just over 500,000 square feet of office space. The building skin will be reflective glass and metal panels arranged as pleats.
There’s also a 5-storey circular retail and entertainment pavilion fronting West Georgia Street which is not part of the rezoning, (as it’s in a different zone) but which will be a separate Development Application. There will continue to be a Creative Energy heat plant as part of the development, which will be upgraded as part of the project.
