The above pic is the new $750 million TELUS office building. This 22-storey tower is scheduled to be completed by 2015 and will go by the name of the “TELUS Garden”. This has a total of 1 million square feet and will take up an entire city block in downtown Vancouver. In addition, this development will also house multiple corporate tenants, create a 44-storey building with 500 new residential units, have a 10,000 square foot roof top garden and two elevated roof forests. Pretty swanky new digs.
Darren Entwistle, TELUS president and CEO stated “Our vision is that TELUS Garden will be a beautiful and unique location where leading-edge technology, urban living, environmental sustainability and tomorrow’s work styles are elegantly integrated into a vibrant community. This development, which will inject millions of dollars into our economy, will highlight TELUS’ advanced communications technologies and environmental innovation in a way never before seen.”
