In 2004, Concord Pacific Developments won a bid to build the TV Towers on what was then the CBC parking lot. The TV Towers are a post-modern addition to the Vancouver skyline. Tower 1 is 26 stories high, with 225 residential units, while Tower 2 is 36 stories, with 300 units. Both towers feature private balconies that are in keeping with their clean, elegant glass-and-steel curves.
Both of the TV towers feature suites from one bedroom, to two bedrooms and a den. TV Tower 2 also has a number of studio apartments. Interestingly, in a poll conducted during construction, locals expressed a desire for more studios. Not only in the TV Towers, but in any future condominium developments in the area. David Hepworth, at Vancouver’s Situ Design, is the mind behind the interiors at TV Towers. Hepworth chose to follow a cleaner European-style design plan featuring high-gloss white cabinetry in the kitchens and glass mosaic back splashes – though some residents chose the upgrade to stainless steel. Counters and worktops are typically particle wood, with granite and stone also available. Floors are laminate in main living areas, and tiled in the bathrooms. All suites come in one of two pre-designed colour schemes, light or dark.
