Description

This building is part of the Lore Krill Housing Co-operative. Construction began in 2000 and the building officially opened in 2002. It was funded by the City of Vancouver and BC Housing through Homes BC. The building was designed by Henrique Partners Architects and won the Lieutenant-Governor’s Medal in 2003 and the Governor General’s Medal for Architecture in 2004. It has six storeys and features elevated walkways, rooftop decks, and rooftop gardens.

Although a relatively new building, this site is listed on the Vancouver Heritage Register due to municipal heritage protections related to the Gastown Historic Area. The Gastown Historic Area is presently referred to as HA-2 in the City’s zoning bylaws.  Buildings in this area are subject to additional regulations even if they are not on the Vancouver Heritage Register. Some sites in the area are listed on the Register as protected but have no A, B or C classification. This is usually because the Province originally protected these sites as part of the creation of the Historic Area and this category of protection remains even as the City’s system of heritage classification has evolved. These designated sites in Gastown are represented on the Heritage Site Finder with an “O.”
