Last Update: September 30, 2012
We would like to provide you with an update regarding a building project taking place next to Carmana Plaza.
745 Thurlow is a new development 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 between 7:30 am – 6 pm (Monday–Friday) and 10 am – 6 pm (Saturday); however, during weekdays, work may continue until 8 pm, but no work is allowed on Sundays and Holidays. And although these are within the City of Vancouver’s noise and construction by-laws, we understand that this can adversely impact our guests’ stay.
During this current stage of the demolition, it has generated considerable noise and some intermittent building vibrations. We have been re-assured by the Project Manager that the structural integrity of Carmana Plaza will not be compromised in any way. However, the expected level of noise will be varied and unpredictable, with some periods remaining surprisingly quiet as well.
Please note that this particular phase of demolition should be completed within the next couple of months, followed shortly after with the excavation and shoring anchor work in November 2012 (detailed updates are available on their website).
Please be assured that every effort is being made to minimize any inconvenience that the development may cause and that updates will be posted on our website as they become available. We are also advising all guests at the time of booking and upon check-in of the possible impact – and we are optimistic that our efforts will help mitigate any disturbance resulting from the project.
Our goal is to ensure that you are comfortable during you stay, so please reach out to us if there is anything at all that we can assist you with and/or if you have any further questions.
