The Story

EllisDon provided re-construction and construction management services for Parq Vancouver for New EdgeWater Development ULC. The project site is located at 39 Smithe Street, Vancouver, B.C, and is bound by Expo Boulevard to the north, Smithe Street to the west, Pacific Boulevard to the south and BC Place Stadium to the east.

This new development is a multi-use facility, which  includes a 3.5 level parkade and an urban resort that features two luxury resort hotels (approximately 517 keys), a conference centre, eight restaurants, retail space and a new home for the existing Edgewater Casino.


The JW Marriott Towers sits parallel to Pacific Boulevard and varies in height from 16, 17 and 26 storeys above the podium, and the 17-storey Douglas Tower sits parallel to Smithe Street. The podium includes multiple lounges and restaurants, 2,000 square feet of gaming area, 70,000 square feet of meeting space, pre-function and conference space, a 6,000 square foot spa, and a fitness facility.

This new multi-use urban resort creates an animated streetscape and vibrant outdoor gathering space for the community and visitors, and provides convenient connections between Yaletown, BC Place and downtown Vancouver through improved pedestrian walkways. This is Western Canada’s first and only urban resort with hotels, restaurants, lounges and meeting space that is adjacent to a stadium – BC Place.
