A picture is worth a thousand words. A number of computer generated perspectives and photos showing the proposed tower development at Kingsway and Broadway are in the picture gallery below. The pictures help illustrate the shear scale and size of the proposed design. Please check back as more pictures are being added in the next couple of weeks.
How was the computer model created? The City of Vancouver and the architects did not release their models. This computer massing model was built from scratch using the architectural drawings for the Oct 2011 proposal on the City’s website here. This computer model was been provided to the City of Vancouver for verification as requested by planning staff on January 27th. In addition to using the architectural drawings (floor plans, sections, elevations), information from the city’s Open Data website was also referenced (contour lines, property lines and aerial photographs).
