Designed by the award-winning Vancouver based architecture firm Henriquez Partners Architects, the uniquely beautiful 200,000 square foot building features a collection of 119 elegant condominiums positioned as a majestic gateway into the downtown core and the distinct character of the surrounding areas.  Situated in one of Vancouver’s most exclusive urban communities, it’s the cornerstone of a district that celebrates architecture and design. The slender 26-storey residential building located at the corner of Georgia and Cardero street features distinctive “origami” screens intended to appear as if they are floating on the building.  The eye catching architecture not only provides shade but also enhances residence privacy and reduces solar gain during the summer months.   Cardero was built to target LEED Gold certification.  The high-rise luxury residences provide light-filled interior spaces, great views, and an exceptional level of finishing.  The tower sits atop a four-story podium offering retail spaces.   Amenities include fitness studio, owners lounge, rooftop terrace and concierge.

With an estimated project value of $100 million, this luxury winery in Osoyoos, BC is located on the edge of a plane formed by glacial sands, deposited by “phantom” creeks created as the ice melted.  The foundations of the new Phantom Creek Estates winery located along the Black Sage Bench of Oliver, B.C., are deeply rooted in history.  The estate is a blend of three pre-existing vineyards, the 60 acre Sundial Vineyard, the Phantom Creek Vineyard, a smaller seven-acre vineyard across the road from Sundial, as well as one more parcel of land on the Golden Mile Bench.  Ledcor managed construction for the project which is one of the largest wineries in the region.  At approx. 72,000 square feet, most of the structure is used as the production facility and barrel storage on the lower two floors. The winery contains a multi-level hospitality center, a tasting lounge, an indoor and outdoor restaurant with views of Lake Osoyoos, and a 500-seat amphitheater for outdoor concerts.
