8x on the Park is now complete in Vancouver’s Yaletown neighbourhood, a mixed-use tower with luxury condos, rental apartments and a daycare, designed by GBL Architects. 8x on the Park, a 35-storey, mixed-use tower designed by GBL Architects, is now complete at Richards and Helmcken in Yaletown.
The project has been a decade in the making, beginning with the demolition of the former Jubilee House, a social housing building that existed on the tower site. Before construction began on the 8x on the Park tower, developer Brenhill replaced the social housing with a new Jubilee House, on the northwest corner of Richards and Helmcken. That project won a 2016 UDI Award for Excellence in Non-Market Housing.
