The new Exchange project in downtown Vancouver is two construction projects in one. First is a complex retrofit of a 1929 Heritage building, and second is a new 375-foot tower, with 31 stories and 7 levels of underground parking.
The retrofit is taking place in an existing 12-story building, once the original Old Stock Exchange Building. It is much more than just a façade update. The original building will be completely restored and will seamlessly blend into the new construction.
The project, which is targeting LEED Platinum, is currently under construction, with substantial completion scheduled for summer 2017.
