Overview

TELUS Garden transforms an entire city block in the heart of downtown Vancouver.

Envisioning this important city block, bounded by Georgia St, Richards, Seymour and Robson, as an integrated whole, rather than a series of development sites was the concept of TELUS President and CEO, Darren Entwistle. Westbank was chosen to partner with TELUS and bring that original vision to reality. There are so many aspects of this project which excite us, including using new technologies to achieve a LEED Platinum designation. We believe this may be one of the most important developments in Vancouver’s recent history and Gregory Henriquez and his team are giving it their best work to date.

Design

TELUS garden represents the first development in our next generation of projects that reflect our passion and creativity to move us closer to our primary goal of city building.
