TELUS Garden Quick Facts

The anticipation is growing as the opportunity to cultivate a new way of living in one of 428 new homes at TELUS Garden (at Richards and Robson) grows near. Jointly developed by TELUS and developer Westbank (Woodward’s re-development, Fairmont Pacific Rim, and Living Shangri-La), the one-million square foot development will be an amenity-rich building with environmentally sensitive design.

With architecture by Vancouver-based firm Henriquez Partners Architects, TELUS Garden will transform and revitalize the Robson block with this development, which includes a new 24 floor, 500,000 square foot signature office tower and a new 53 floor, 450,000-square foot residential tower, with a three-level retail podium with shops, services, and amenities, plus a public plaza.

TELUS Garden will offer a spectrum of homes from affordable one-bedrooms to luxurious Signature Suites and Penthouses featuring contemporary design and open concept interiors by The Design Agency, Miele-equipped kitchens and Terrazzo-tiled baths. Residents will enjoy TELUS’ advanced communications technology, including TELUS Optik TV, Optik High Speed internet and home phone services as well as tranquil gardens. An expansive wellness centre will also be on site with a gym, swimming pool and yoga facilities.

TELUS Garden promises to set new standards for sustainability within the City of Vancouver Green Capital strategy, targeting Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Platinum and Gold certification. The development will feature its own energy district utility plant that will recover heat from the existing TELUS building on site as well as rooftop solar collection. With these innovations, the developers anticipate the building will use up to 80 percent less energy than a standard building of the same size. In addition, rainwater will be collected for commodes and irrigation, and there will be electric car charging stations and ample bicycle storage.

Perfectly located within walking distance to the Downtown Entertainment District, sports complexes, new arts community, Yaletown and just across from the Canada and Millennium Lines, TELUS Garden boasts the best location in Greater Vancouver. TELUS Garden will set the new standard for green living and provide individuals with a unique opportunity to own a home offering a next-generation lifestyle.

Cultivating Design & Innovation

Spaces for living. The beautiful collection of residences include one- two- and three- bedroom homes, Signature Suites and luxury Penthouses.

Bold architectural expression. The residential tower is dynamic. A textured progression, expressed via three distinct parcels suspended from a central core, is detailed by contemporary solar shades and transparent douglas fir inspired panels.

Sense of place. A luminous podium of glass and onyx and an impressive residential lobby signify arrival. Sky gardens, expansive green roofs, led technology showcasing modern public art, theatre and plaza, animate the block and exemplify creative urban design.

Environmental stewardship. Sustainable principles meet Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED)® Platinum standards (Office) and LEED® Gold standards (Residential), including highly advanced energy conservation measures with a central plant system for heating and cooling.

Cultivating Wellness

Wellness begins at home. At TELUS Garden, personal sanctuary is expressed when you come and go, via innovative design of the private residential lobby. Convenient concierge services are provided in the modern green space, with a living backdrop and engaging multimedia wall.

Residents will also enjoy direct access to the new world-class YYoga Wellness Centre, offering over a dozen styles of yoga, Pilates, YRide and core classes to energize body, mind and soul. The Wellness Centre also includes a spectacular heated outdoor swimming pool and gym facility to fully support your fitness goals and well-being.
