Within the downtown core, there are multiple major office development projects underway which are detailed below:

[1] Telus Gardens is perfectly situated in the most central location in the city for a business address. This development project will radically transform the corner of Richards and Robson. 777 Richards Street is a prime location for commerce as it is in close proximity to central banks, key corporations and businesses and the courthouse district. Telus Gardens is the only new AAA office space that is conveniently located by two major rapid transit lines, the Expo Line and the Canada Line. The development will create 480,000ft2 of much-needed office space and 424 new residential units. This 22-storey office tower and 47-storey residential tower will feature green roofs, providing organic produce for local restaurants, and two elevated roof forests for environmental sustainability.

[2] 745 Thurlow is situated at the corner of Thurlow and Alberni and has leasable space totalling approximately 400,000ft2. Of the 23 storeys, the first three storeys are designed for retail/restaurant and amenity space with the remaining 20 storeys being utilized for office space. The Sustainable LEED Gold Design, architectural design and core service areas make this a prime location for office space. This development project is estimated to be ready for occupancy by 2015.

[3] The Pacific Centre Redevelopment will combine modern office space with fashionable retail space. This redevelopment project located at 725 Granville Street will feature 290,000ft2 of AAA class office space and 45,000ft2 of space for fresh and new retailers. This exciting project will strengthen Pacific Center's position and reputation in the marketplace as Vancouver's paramount mixed-use complex. 

[4] Another major development in the downtown core is 980 Howe. This modern 269,000ft2, 16 storey office tower features the utmost attention to quality throughout the building, a visually appealing layout and an innovative design that allows for a collaborative workspace. It is strategically situated in an area booming with retail outlets, amenities, hotels and transit systems all in close proximity. 

[5] The West Tower, as it is tentatively named, is a development project located at the southwestern end of Rogers Arena. This project is the first of three towers to be constructed around the Arena, with the second tower recently breaking ground earlier this year. This mixed-use complex combines office and residential space and mingles the urban culture prominent in this area with the environmental sustainability that Vancouver has been striving for. Upon completion, this tower will be available to Canucks fans and concert goers and will provide them with new amenities and experiences.
