Completed in 1996, the rehabilitation of the 1912 Percival Building was one of the first projects to be completed during the transformation of the city’s former warehouse district into the revitalized Yaletown neighbourhood. Today, the Percival Building houses 30 residential loft units and ground floor retail.
The 5,000 square metre project included the removal of an unsympathetic concrete window infill that was added after a fire in the 1950s.
Construction systems include new and existing cast-in-place concrete, exposed masonry, steel, wood flooring and tilt-and-turn windows.
