Elenore on Fifth

Elenore on Fifth is a mixed-use commercial and residential development at the corner of 5th Ave and Main Street in Vancouver. The entire upper portion of the building is skewed off of the street grid to create a dramatic skyline and maximize the available FSR.  The building was sculpted to view the mountains, terracing down the slope of Main St to create opportunities for large residential patios and outdoor urban space. The use of brick references the district’s industrial heritage while stone and wood-toned panels nod to neighbouring contemporary condos.

The project is a full Proscenium design — the interior and exterior design were considered together to create a cohesive experience throughout. It is LEED Gold certified and incorporates many sustainable elements, such as extensive green roofs, 5″ exterior insulation and durable materials such as brick cladding.
