Located on Vancouver’s most prestigious waterfront location, Shaw Tower is among the tallest buildings in the city at 489 feet, comprised of 24 stories of luxury condominiums with a unique live/work zoning designation, on top of a 16-storey office building. Situated on Coal Harbour and adjacent to Harbour Green Park, the Vancouver Convention Centre and extension of Vancouver’s famous Seawall.
Shaw Tower is Vancouver's only waterfront office building, and houses 4 of Western Canada's leading companies: Shaw, Ledcor Construction (Shaw Tower's contractor), Pattison Group, and our own Westbank office. The offices are unique in that they have access to large decks overlooking Coal Harbour. There is day care with outdoor playground on the 5th floor. Shaw Tower is regarded as the premiere office building in Vancouver.
The residences with interiors by the late Robert Ledingham with a separate lobby from the office building set the standard for a luxury mixed use project.
Construction began in 2003 and completed in 2006. When Shaw Tower was complete it was the tallest building in the City until the completion of Shangri-la Vancouver. Shaw Tower with its light installation by Diana Thater has become one the signatures of the Vancouver Skyline along with Canada Place (see image) known to the World.
