Terrace House Development

Terrace House - model

Terrace House Development by Portliving

Award-winning real estate developer, PortLiving, and world-renowned Japanese architect, Shigeru Ban, are collaborating to develop one of the last available properties in Vancouver’s Coal Harbour neighbourhood. Terrace House will be Ban’s first development project in Canada and is slated to become the world’s tallest hybrid timber building.

Designed by Pritzker Prize winning architect Shigeru Ban, Terrace House represents the best in design, exclusivity and luxury urban living. Offering cutting edge design and material use, Terrace House will set a new precedent for architecture and innovation not only in Vancouver, but around the world.

The project consists of 20 private homes carefully assembled within an architectural masterpiece – a magnificent icon set in Vancouver’s Coal Harbour, adjacent to the landmark-listed Evergreen Building, designed by the late Arther Erickson.

The design of the ‘Terrace House’ pays tribute to its neighbour, adopting many of the architectural cues of the Evergreen.  Visually, the terraces on the ‘evergreen building’ continue almost seamlessly across ‘terrace house’ on every level, while triangular shapes, natural materials, and greenery have been used throughout both schemes. ‘Shigeru ban has tremendous respect for Arthur Erickson’s work,’ said Dean Maltz, managing partner at Shigeru Ban Architects Americas. ‘it was the opportunity to design a building next to one of Erickson’s masterpieces that initially drew him to this innovative project.’

Terrace House Development adjacent to the Evergreen Building
Adjacent to the Evergreen Building

According to the design description, “meticulously engineered timber” will be used to create the building’s latticework frame, which will be interspersed with an abundance of greenery rising up from the ground floor. The proposed design will create not only the world’s largest timber hybrid structure, but will be a luminous icon for Vancouver’s growing cityscape

The project boasts an  impressive lineup of professionals working on this project – Shigeru Ban, mastercraftsman Hermann Blumer, landscape architect Cornelia Oberlande

According to the developers, the primary goal of the project is to make a statement of intent concerning vancouver’s commitment to sustainable design and advanced timber engineering and construction.

 ‘we have brought together the best of the best — a team of true experts in creative collaboration, working together for the first time ever on a single project. the result is truly a once-in-a-lifetime project setting new standards in design and construction’

“We are honoured to be working with Shigeru Ban and his team to bring a visionary design and new landmark to the City of Vancouver,” said Macario (Tobi) Reyes, founder and CEO of PortLiving. “We are extremely excited by Shigeru Ban’s decision to bring his craft to the Pacific Northwest, where we expect he will be embraced for his environmentally-sustainable approach, creative integration of outdoor living, and his leadership in innovation.”

Wood structural engineer Hermann Blumer, a long time collaborator of Ban, is also involved in the project. ‘every detail has been considered right down to the specific foliage on the terraces,’ says Macario Reyes, Founder and CEO of Portliving. ‘it only made sense to bring on Cornelia Oberlander to continue her vision and create continuity between the evergreen building by Arthur Erickson and terrace house by Shigeru Ban.’

The first 12 floors of Terrace House will be constructed of concrete and steel, expressed as an architectural finish to Erickson’s iconic work. Cornelia Hahn Oberlander, the original landscape architect for the Evergreen Building, will help ensure harmony between the two buildings. The upper portion of Terrace House will be a distinct, triangular, glass-clad mass timber structure utilizing local timber.

ALBERNI by Kengo Kuma

ALBERNI by Kengo Kuma.

A uniquely shaped residential tower at 1550 Alberni designed by Kengo Kuma, a renowned Japanese architect, will be a new landmark in Vancouver when completed in 2021. Unlike any other classic Japanese shaped residential tower, this masterpiece is a world-class modern building with a visionary conception and intricate design details. The design was inspired by nature and shaped by the environment while respecting the Japanese spatial traditions. In particular the emphasis was set on the atmosphere rather than the object in order to create a serene visceral experience. The urban strategy aims to improve the city and its relation to nature. Developed by Westbank & Peterson Group this tower in Downtown’s Coal Harbour will visibly excite people from around the world.

1550 Alberni

Inspired by the environment, the organic shape of this challenging 43-storey tower was designed with special curved concrete in combination with diagonally symmetrical deductions to counterbalance the hanging volume above. The façade will be finished with a curtain wall clad in anodised aluminium. Architecturally, it creates a reflection effect of the sky, natural light and other buildings, a facade that disappears and reappears like clouds.

Two remarkable scoops carve the tower to form deep balconies furnished in wood. The recessed form of the building respects and optimizes neighbouring views. A concept of ‘carved deductions’ not only optimizes the views but also strengthens the relationship to the street, to its urban and geographic context. All 188 residents will have the feeling of being close to the ground and nature. While the story that lies behind these deductions is that it creates a symbolic entryway to the building and to downtown Vancouver with views along the street.

Coal Harbour Sub Penthouse

Kuma’s inspiration by nature is clearly reflected by the ground floor of the building, a Japanese moss garden under arching structures surrounding an amphitheatre shaped form. This ground level green space defines the entrance of the building and is a public amenity that connects nature with street-life. It can be used for various activities such as concerts, small parties or to enjoy a pause in the middle of the city.


Above this amphitheatre awaits a swimming pool: a strikingly layered wood standalone wall resembling the childhood game of pick-up sticks inside the concave space’s pool area will be landscaped with a Japanese moss garden.

Curved base

Kengo Kuma is an architect who values traditional Japanese wooden constructions and craftsmanship with a modern twist. His ample use of wood creates intimacy and warmth responds to the abundance of nature in Vancouver being close to Stanley Park. In fact wood disappeared from the city in the 20th century so Kuma wanted to revive the feeling of living with wood and the warmth of wood. However the tower rises at 135 meters (436 ft.), the ground level wooden timber constructions should give people a sense of craftsmanship. As such, it is a major emblematic element in Kengo Kuma’s architectural design and it is also frequently used in his previous works.
The mixed-use development features a wine tasting room, art gallery, music room, double-storey fitness centre, retail space and a unique Waketokuyama Japanese Restaurant. For the first time this restaurant will be based outside Japan. The Tokyo restaurant has two Michelin stars and is considered to be one of the best Kaiseiki restaurants in Japan. Furthermore this elegant project features six levels of underground parking resulting in 271 vehicles spots, 49 electric vehicle charging stations and 248 bicycle stalls .

Kengo Kuma Architects and Associates also took care of the interior design for the luxurious residential units in this building. All the units are finished using natural materials, craftsmanship and thoughtful detail such as the organic shape in the units, floor-to-ceiling glazing and open patios. The penthouse unit will have a terrace and swimming pool with magnificent views of English Bay. Some units will feature a Japanese soaking tub on the balcony, also known as a Furo used in a Japanese tea ceremony. By bringing together the Eastern and Western culture this unique project is a sort of cultural exchange. The city itself is multicultural so the details and materials coming from Japan and Asia are chosen carefully to match this cultural exchange. Using materials from other cultures can stimulate the city. 1150 Alberni is an overall experience defined by interwoven layers of textures and themes. The project clearly is prime contemporary real estate with a tribute to the Japanese culture.


The typical home price will be approximately $2000 per square foot. Sales for available units range in price from $1,158,900 to over $19,989,900. The development has a total of 188 units. Private purchase appointments will be scheduled beginning early March at the “Teahouse by Kengo Kuma” sales centre. For further interest please contact me at 604 612 6392

 Three Harbour Green, 277 Thurlow, Vancouver

jbentley hb (1)

Three Harbour Green at 277 Thurlow Street is the last genuine waterfront tower in the Coal Harbour neighbourhood. It is a fitting final chapter to Aspac’s Coal Harbour legacy – a vision that began and ends with excellence.

Three Harbour Green resides at the northeast corner of Thurlow Street and West Cordova Street, soaring 32 floors with 81 units.  Completed in spring 2012, Three Harbour Green boasts an unmatched waterfront location, allowing unobstructed panoramic views of Vancouver’s most iconic sceneries: ocean, Stanley Park, Lions Gate Bridge, Harbour Green Park, Mountains, North Shore, and Downtown Vancouver.



Harbour Green Three is a high-end, high-rise residential building that completes development along the Coal Harbour waterfront in downtown Vancouver. Comprised of a 32-storey tower., the building provides 82 units ranging from 1200 to 4500 sq.ft.; and stretches up to 355 ft. tall. Sited at the junction in between the financial district and Vancouver’s west end, the building provides a visual link between the simple office typology of the financial district (to the east) and the more complex residential developments (to the west).

Fronting seven acres of waterfront park space, the development achieves its architectural excellence in response to this prominent site, as well as an attention to high quality materials and design. The building itself has two ‘personalities’ between the office towers to the east, and the new residential towers to the west. As such, the eastern façade of the building is uniform and minimalist as a pure curtain wall. The west side of the building is more complex, rendered as a series of stone-clad boxes hanging off the building, or ‘sky gardens’.

Interior Design

Features throughout all spaces evoke a sense of high-end luxury living. Vibrant colours, patterns, and textures create a striking first impression. High-quality finishes and furnishings are simplistic, sleek, and complement the detailing throughout.

One notable observation of the market for Habour Green Park over the past few years is the high number of expired and terminated listings relative to solds. These figures suggest that the overall chance of selling a listing at Harbour Green Park is less than 30% – especially if the unit is not sharply priced.  When we look at the ratio of sales to expired/terminated listings across all three towers, Three Harbour Green has an even lower percentage of success. This may be changing.
