EllisDon provided pre-construction and construction management services for Parq Vancouver (formerly Parq Urban Resort and Casino) for New EdgeWater Developments ULC. Positioned on a challenging and previously unused site adjacent to BC Place, the U-shaped building contains two Marriott hotels with a combined 518 rooms, one with luxury suites.
An international entertainment destination, the facility includes a 72,000-sq-ft casino, eight restaurants, bars and lounges; and Canada’s largest hotel ballroom. On the rooftop of the casino complex’s six-storey podium, a large 30,000-sq-ft treed rooftop park features over 200 native pines. The design concept pays tribute to BC’s natural beauty, and is designed to meet LEED Gold standards.
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.
