745 Thurlow Site Development

Last Update: December 10, 2013

We would like to provide you with an update regarding the renovation of our suites at Carmana Plaza and the building project taking place next door at 745 Thurlow Street.

Carmana Plaza is excited to announce that we will be renovating many of our hotel suites over the coming months. Please be advised work will be taking place from December 2, 2013 until April 30, 2014. During this period there may be some noise disturbance Monday to Friday from 9:00am to 6:00pm, no work will take place within the hotel on Saturday, Sunday and Statutory Holidays. The management of Carmana Plaza is committed to your comfort, enjoyment, and safety while you are staying at our property. Our professional and experienced team will do their best to ensure noise disturbance caused by these renovations will be minimal.

The new development entitled 745 Thurlow Street is being developed by Bentall Kennedy and bcIMC, two of the most prolific developers in BC and across Canada. Once completed in 2015, it will be among the first office buildings in Downtown Vancouver to achieve LEED Core and Shell Gold certification. Moreover, it will add to the already rapidly evolving 1000/1100 blocks of Alberni Street – an area poised to be Vancouver`s own mini version of Rodeo Drive, lined with high-end fashion boutiques and restaurants/cafes.

Work is currently taking place at 745 Thurlow Street between 7:30 am – 6:00 pm (Monday–Friday) and 10:00 am – 6:00 pm (Saturday). However, during weekdays, work may continue until 8:00 pm. Please be advised that no work is allowed on Sundays and Holidays. These work hours are within the City of Vancouver's noise and construction by-laws. At this phase, there is minimal disturbance aside from the intermittent noise generated at street level along with occasional traffic congestion. For detailed progress updates and access to their live camera stream, please go to www.745thurlow.com.

Please be assured that every effort is being made to minimize any inconvenience to our guests. Our goal is to ensure that you are comfortable during you stay. Please reach out to us if there is anything at all that we can assist you with, or if you have any questions regarding our renovations or the 745 Thurlow development. Thank you for your understanding and co-operation in these matters.

Sincerely,
Carmana Plaza Management
