Completed in March 2018, The Duke is a LEED Gold target rental use project designed under the City of Vancouver Rental 100 Secured Market Rental Housing Policy.

Located near a busy transit-oriented node in Vancouver’s Mount Pleasant neighbourhood, the 15,263 square metre, thirteen storey, mixed-use project includes 201 rental units with ground floor retail housed in a unique building typology that is new to Vancouver.

The design features a soaring, open-air court over which a translucent fabric canopy shields the circulation space from rain. A dramatic vertical slot opens the court to the south to further flood the space with natural daylight. A vibrant, fuscia-coloured public art piece, suspended in the slot, imbues the opening with a striking, soft pink glow.
