1151 West Georgia Hotel & Residences Puts a Twist in the Vancouver Skyline

Blog by Jeff Fitzpatrick | August 14th, 2012

Things are getting a little twisted in Vancouver! Last week we blogged about the BIG ‘twisted’ tower on Beach & Howe and today it’s the newly resurrected Arthur Erickson building on 1151 West Georgia Street (originally called the Ritz Carlton).

1151 West Georgia

This 71 storey development which has been designed to look like it’s gracefully spiraling into the sky will contain a 4 star hotel with 187 rooms and 287 residential units above. By 2014, this lot which has sat empty since October 2008 will be replaced by Vancouver's second tallest tower, opposite the Shangri-La. 

  • 1151 West Georgia (between Bute and Thurlow Street)
  • 71 storey tower (earlier version had 63 floors) containing a 4 star hotel with 187 rooms and 287 residential units above
  • Same triangular floor plate from the bottom to the top of the building with a gradual rotation
  • Vancouver’s second tallest tower after the Shangri-La
  • Will feature a signature restaurant and lounge, banquet facilities, spa, health club, and executive lounge
  • Priced from approximately $1,500/sq.ft. 
  • Completion: 2014
