Focal 2290 Main Street, Vancouver

9 Levels 2016 Built Pets allowed Rentals allowed


Located at the cross-section of Main, Kingsway and 7th Avenue, FOCAL responds to the diagonal and orthogonal street grid by laying several different geometric forms, alternating and staggering them to allow for production of passive solar heating and cooling. With  nine stories, FOCAL not only maximizes views and light, but complements the area by creating more transparency for surrounding buildings. Only on Main Street could you find a place like FOCAL. In a neighbourhood known for its visual art scene and historical architecture, FOCAL is the ideal contemporary counterpoint. With simple, staggered forms that maximize views and echo the unique grid points of its Main and 7th location, FOCAL is a landmark building that defies stereotypes. As a LEED Gold project, FOCAL is distinguished by a unique glass paneled exterior that mimics the effect of filtered light through a forest. It’s a building that engages the neighbourhood, with artists’ studios, communal rooftops and a pedestrian-friendly laneway. (Discription Taken from the Developers Website)
