Vancouver City Council has approved Concord Pacific’s rezoning application to construct Arc Vancouver, a pair of market residential buildings that are linked together by three bridges.

The development site at 998 Expo Boulevard is located at the northwest end of the Cambie Street Bridge.

It will consist of 620 units over a pair of 28 and 30 storey buildings, including 2 and 5 storey podiums. A pedestrian plaza will extend underneath the Cambie Street Bridge and towards the company’s adjacent under construction One Pacific project.

The three multi-storey bridge structures are the most unique architectural features of this James Cheng designed project and will also contain apartment units. However, these features are not new to Vancouver.

The Onni Group’s Central project near Main Street-Science World Station incorporates an 8-storey skybridge over two buildings. Canadian Metropolitan Properties has also submitted a proposal to redevelop the Plaza of Nations site with as many as 2,000 residential units. One of the envisioned buildings is also designed by Cheng and includes another multi-storey skybridge.

Both Arc Vancouver and One Pacific neighbour BC Place and the site of the approved $535 million urban casino resort.
