NEWS: PAI named Associate Architect for new mass-timber office

Proscenium is excited to announce our involvement in T3 Mount Pleasant, a new mass-timber office building in Vancouver. Standing for “timber, transit and technology,” T3 Mount Pleasant will be a 10-storey, 196,000 sq ft office building geared towards tech and creative industry tenants.

PAI will be acting as Associate Architect to DLR Group in this project developed by the Houston-based Hines and local developer PC Urban. This will be our third mass-timber office project in the area.

The City of Vancouver-owned site was rezoned in 2017 to new I-1A and 1-1B (Industrial) zones in order to support and enable the intensification of digital and technology uses, increasing maximum floor space area ratio (FAR) up to 5:0 FAR with contributions to community amenities (CACs), e.g. affordable housing and heritage.

T3 Mount Pleasant is now in the Design phase with construction to start in 2022.
