Vancouver High-Rise Lofts

Lofts aren't always in old renovated wharehouses or buildings that are designed to look like them. In Vancouver lofts are taken to new heights, 20 to 30 floors that is. The high-rise loft building can often be identified by it's grouping together of floors on the exterior to show it's double floor units. Like on the buildings below and too the left, see how pairs of floors are grouped together with bands on the facade. All of the lofts shown on this page are in Yaletown




the Metropolis
The top of the Metropolis is the best part of the building with all it's deco like setbacks (I have a better picture of it I will scan). The builders combined the high-rise with an old deco building (shown) to get the desired density. See all those wires in this picture, thats what the electric busses run on.
