Wesgroup has won a Gold Nugget Award award for Best Mixed Use Project in 2014 at The Prescott in North Vancouver. Here’s a little bit about the project we built and are very proud of!
Consciously shaped, intelligently positioned, and designed with purpose by renowned architect Walter Frankl. The Prescott offers tailored interior living spaces, inviting residential lobby design, and an extensive public realm designed by award-winning landscape architects PWL Partnership.
Because of Wesgroup and the design team’s commitment to extensive public consultation, The Prescott was met with immense community support as members of the surrounding community recognized the value this mixed-use building brought to the area.
In a highly saturated market, The Prescott’s design, location and architecture provided a significant competitive advantage. The result was tremendous success in sales relative to competitors in the area.
The Prescott is the first building in the City of North Vancouver designed to satisfy the newly introduced Building Security Bylaw. The building features 24-hour video surveillance; secured, encrypted electronic access; and superior fire protection and fire safety.
A prime example of ‘up-zoning’ through the introduction of premium commercial space usage to a site previously occupied by a gas station, BlueShore Financial has made the 60,000sf commercial podium of The Prescott the home to their flagship branch and corporate headquarters. The bold glass and concrete tower is set above the new head office and flagship branch of BlueShore Financial.
