Vancouver, BC

Featured Building: Symphony Place

565smithestreet-Vcr-exterior.jpg


Vita is the first tower built at Symphony Place on the corner of Smithe Street and Seymour Street, across the street from Vancouver's well know Orpheum Theatre. The second tower built is Dolce and put together, Dolce Vita means "the sweet life". Merrick Architects and the Solterra Group of Companies developers truly have created the sweet life for residents in Symphony.


Between the two towers is a "porte cochere" extending from the entrance to shelter those arriving by vehicle like one would in a hotel. Porte Cochere is described as being "a carriage entrance passing through a building to an enclosed courtyard".[1]


The name Symphony Place is likely inspired by the Symphony Orchestra whose home base is across the street in the renovated and restored Orpheum Theatre.
