Graham was recently awarded the $167-million construction management contract to deliver its first high-rise project in downtown Vancouver, 1568 Alberni.

This 43-storey, 45,708 m2 (492,000 sq. ft.) luxury residential tower is comprised of 181 units, eight levels of underground parking and mixed-use space for retailers. Amenities include a gym, pool, sauna, play area, public art, wine cellar, restaurant and more. The exterior of this high-end, LEED Gold tower features two concave siders resulting in a unique, curved form.

Graham is working closely with owners Peterson Group, a Vancouver-based real estate investment, development, property management, capital lending and private equity company, and Westbank Projects Corp., a developer recognized for many notable, luxury projects across North America. Together with design architect Kengo Kuma Architects from Japan, and architect of record Merrick Architecture, a Vancouver based practice, the Graham project team is set to begin construction on the Alberni high-rise project.

Pre-construction is ongoing and on-site activities have commenced, with the removal of hazardous materials to prepare for demolition of the existing building. Substantial completion is scheduled for March 2021.
