Vancouver’s very own Cardero building just won an international award
For a long time, downtown Vancouver has looked pretty homogenous. You know all those tall green/blue glass high rises? Well, recently developers and architects have started to branch out a bit. And that has paid off because one downtown building just won an international award.
The lucky building is the Cardero which sits on West Georgia and features a striking angled white steel facade. Built by Bosa Properties and designed by Henriquez Partners Architects, Cardero is 26-storeys tall and features 119 residential units along with ample office space. Recently, it won the Award of Excellence in the Best Tall Buildings Under 100m from The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat. So give a round of applause for the Cardero.
Construction started on Cardero back in 2017 and only wrapped up during the summer of 2020, so this instant recognition is a nice pat on the back.
But the fun isn’t over quite yet because the building will actually go on to also compete for Overall Category Winner against other buildings around the world. Fingers crossed Vancouver’s own Cardero can keep up its winning ways against the best in the world.
