Before we get carried away, funding for the new development has not yet reached its target—estimated around $300 million—so it might be a while before we see the new structure pop up across from the Queen Elizabeth Theatre on West Georgia.
Covering two-thirds of the block, the design by Swiss architects Herzog & de Meuron proposes a stacked structure, which would created a layered environment; opening up covered spaces that would be both sunlit and safe from the rain.
Technical design elements aside, Vancouverites took to social media with their thoughts on the overall appearance.
