Vancouver, BC

Featured Building: Shaw Tower

Built in 2005, the Shaw Tower is the third tallest building in Vancouver. It is also one of the most recognized due to its waterfront location on West Cordova Street with its blue and green LED lights that can be seen all way to the North Shore. The Shaw Tower is a mixed use tower featuring office space and a television studio for Shaw Communications.

Fortunately the top 26 floors are reserved for residential use, offering residents one of the most coveted addresses in Vancouver and sweeping views of Coal Harbour, Stanley Park, and the North Shore Mountains.


Location

To say that the location of the Shaw Tower is its strong suit would be a great understatement.

The Shaw Tower occupies waterfront property in the upscale neighbourhood of Coal Harbour. This location allows residents to take advantage of the many fine culinary experiences that Vancouver has to offer.

Its location on the Seawall and in close proximity to Stanley Park also allows residents to spend their free time outdoors.

However the views that are offered to the residents of Shaw Tower may make it difficult for them to leave their homes.
