349 West Georgia Street, Vancouver, BC, V6B 2R4. The old Vancouver Post Office was closed in 2014. BC investment Management Corporation is the owner of the building. They have partnered with developer Bentall Kennedy and local architecture firm Musson Cattell Mackey Partnership (MCM). The 1958 Concrete and steel building will act as the 'podium' for the construction of 5 towers above it. The podium with have 4 levels of retail along with parking.
The building covers an entire city block framed by Dunsmuir Street to the north, West Georgia Street to the south, Homer Street to the west, and Hamilton Street to the southeast. The four residential towers on the northernmost area of the podium will have 850 units which comprises 650 rental units and 200 market condos.
The hulking Canada Post processing plant at 349 West Georgia Street is considered one of the finest architectural examples of the International Style of Modernism in Vancouver. The proposed redevelopment of this site into a mixed use, multiple-tower structure offering work and living spaces for 4,000 people, will alter the character of the neighbourhood. With the opening of Telus Garden and the planned relocation of the Vancouver Art Gallery to Larwill Park at Cambie and Georgia, we expect tremendous change to come to Downtown East.
