YARDARM BUILDING

7 East 6th Ave, Vancouver, BC. Rendition Developments, $3.5 million, completed 2015. 18,000 s.f. Industrial/Manufacturing & Office Yardarm was developed in the rapidly changing Mount Pleasant area. Three open sides and the roof of the building are active to connect with long views to the north, west and south. The building accommodates clothing manufacturing and offices uses as a continuation of the manufacturing history of the area. MGBA inhabits the top floor for their Vancouver offices and studio. A contemporary expression of glazed form floating above an articulated concrete podium carries a simple industrial design language forward, establishing a strong precedent for this evolving area.
