Alberni by Kengo Kuma, built by Westbank Corp., is located at the corner of Alberni Street and Cardero Street at the edge of the West End. The 43-storey tower, which will host 188 units, is carved by two emphatic scoops. Because of how the orthogonal tower is carved, its silhouette constantly changes through the day, which creates the illusion of arching cantilevers. With its unique location, residents are steps away from both Stanley Park and English Bay for a quick escape into nature, while boutique shops and restaurants on Robson Street are seconds away. The tower meets the ground with two intersecting domes that embrace Alberni and Cardero. Under the arching structures, residents will have access to an extensive moss garden, which leads upwards to the swimming pool. Other amenities include a Fazioli piano, an exercise centre, 24-hour Concierge services, and a Japanese restaurant operated in collaboration with the owner of two Michelin-starred Kaiseki restaurant, Waketokuyama in Tokyo.
