VIDEO: 564 Beatty project takes old warehouse into new territory with concrete
564 Beatty is a turn of the 20th century warehouse located in downtown Vancouver on Beatty street. It is currently being converted into an office complex, with a modern addition on top of the original structure.
John Stovell, president of Reliance Properties, spoke to the Journal of Commerce about the extensive use of concrete in the project, which allowed for the ambitious four storey expansion and preserved the original appearance of the building. Concrete also allowed for a more modern interior with less pillars and other dividing structures inside the office environment.
He also explained how the building was upgraded to current seismic standards and the many sustainable facets of the project, not the least of which is preservation of the original structure. The building will also feature a green roof and is adjacent to the Stadium Skytrain station.
