For months, the Rolston captured the attention of passersby with its eye-catching architectural design. Now construction is complete and the doors officially open to those looking to satisfy their curiosity of what lies within.

Created by innovative local developer Rize Alliance, the Rolston is a 23-storey residential tower built at the foot of the Granville Bridge, adjacent to one of Vancouver’s oldest heritage buildings, the 1898 Yale Hotel that was also restored as part of this project. Located in the heart of bustling Midtown, a newly revitalized neighbourhood offering a wide range of amenities from shopping to dining and easy access to the seawall, the Rolston’s residents embrace downtown living.



With a geometric design that zig zags its way up the building’s exterior, The Rolston’s contemporary design offers a striking juxtaposition against the heritage façade of iconic Yale Hotel, located street-level on the building’s Granville Street doorstep. The Yale is famous for playing host to artists like Stevie Ray Vaughn and English bluesman Long John Baldry. Rize Alliance worked to preserve and restore the original building’s character as a nod to its historical roots.



But the eye-catching design of the Rolston’s exterior extends far beyond the view. With two spacious communal patios, the Rolston boasts some of the most impressive urban and ocean views in the city. The best spot to take it all in is on the spacious rooftop where residents can mix and mingle while enjoying an impressive 360-degree backdrop of the city skyline and sea view.

Inside, the Roston’s stunning decor continues in the two display homes, now open for viewing. Designed by Tanya McLean of Vancouver’s Mango Design Company, the suites were decorated to appeal to cultural creatives looking for a place that lets them both live where they work and play where they live.


To see all that the Rolston has to offer, visit The display homes, located at 1325 Rolston St., are available for viewing Saturday to Wednesday from noon to 5 p.m. For more information or to book an appointment, call 604-782-0821.
