The Maddox at 738 Rolston will be a slender and unique addition to the Vancouver sky line. The visual presence of concrete is minimized by incorporating clay panel technology which provides a function of solar performance and rain screening. The highlighting results with the Maddox will be a predominantly glass look.

Location

With water and Yale town views, the Maddox is located in the heart of the entertainment district at the south side of downtown Vancouver. Transport options are many with light rail, bus and major thorough fares just out side the lobby doors of the Maddox. The lifestyle markets of Granville Island are just over the Granville street bridge. Water taxi's are easily accessible and within walking distance of the Maddox . Some of the best retail shopping, in this world class city, are just minutes away on Robson Street.[1]

The City of Vancouver and the Cressey group are working together to revitalize the south side. Plans to remove the Granville exit loops will greatly reduce the current traffic noise around the Maddox. The removal of the Granville loops will open up and connect beach avenue and the old 1986 world Exposition grounds creating a commercial market area some what like Granville island. Their goal is to create a sunlit vibrant people friendly neighborhood.[2]

Trivia

The real estate marketing firm for Maddox, MAC Marketing solutions, is apologizing for having two employees pose as potential buyers in a recent CTV and CBC televised interview. In the interview the administrative assistant and a sales assistant with MAC Marketing Solutions posed as buyers claiming they were sisters, and that their parents were coming over from China to assist them in their purchase. In reality, the women are not even related. The misrepresentation was first spotted by the online communities. Watchdog blogs and message boards brought this story to the Media's attention. The GLOBE AND MAIL ran the story February 14th 2013.[5]

The Real Estate Council of B.C will be investigating the matter.
