TELUS Garden Quick Facts
The anticipation is growing as the opportunity to cultivate a new way of living in one of 428 new homes at TELUS Garden (at Richards and Robson) grows near. Jointly developed by TELUS and developer Westbank (Woodward’s re-development, Fairmont Pacific Rim, and Living Shangri-La), the one-million square foot development will be an amenity-rich building with environmentally sensitive design.
With architecture by Vancouver-based firm Henriquez Partners Architects, TELUS Garden will transform and revitalize the Robson block with this development, which includes a new 24 floor, 500,000 square foot signature office tower and a new 53 floor, 450,000-square foot residential tower, with a three-level retail podium with shops, services, and amenities, plus a public plaza.
TELUS Garden will offer a spectrum of homes from affordable one-bedrooms to luxurious Signature Suites and Penthouses featuring contemporary design and open concept interiors by The Design Agency, Miele-equipped kitchens and Terrazzo-tiled baths. Residents will enjoy TELUS’ advanced communications technology, including TELUS Optik TV, Optik High Speed internet and home phone services as well as tranquil gardens. An expansive wellness centre will also be on site with a gym, swimming pool and yoga facilities.
TELUS Garden promises to set new standards for sustainability within the City of Vancouver Green Capital strategy, targeting Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Platinum and Gold certification. The development will feature its own energy district utility plant that will recover heat from the existing TELUS building on site as well as rooftop solar collection. With these innovations, the developers anticipate the building will use up to 80 percent less energy than a standard building of the same size. In addition, rainwater will be collected for commodes and irrigation, and there will be electric car charging stations and ample bicycle storage.
Perfectly located within walking distance to the Downtown Entertainment District, sports complexes, new arts community, Yaletown and just across from the Canada and Millennium Lines, TELUS Garden boasts the best location in Greater Vancouver. TELUS Garden will set the new standard for green living and provide individuals with a unique opportunity to own a home offering a next-generation lifestyle.
