Brenhill Development’s 8X On The Park by GBL Architects sits along the edge of Emery Barnes Park in the City of Vancouver’s vibrant Yaletown neighborhood. This 35-storey mixed-use residential development is LEED Gold certified and integrates market and rental housing with retail and childcare at grade.
The tower’s design addresses multiple contextual variables, including a neighboring heritage apartment that establishes an urban scale and cadence along one side and numerous buildings of varying heights that reflect the increasing densification of Yaletown. Emery Barnes Park presents a critical third contextual zone, offering proximity to public space.
