Another highrise is being reclad in Downtown Vancouver. More buildings to undergo extensive renovations soon?

Reclad building near False CreekA highrise at 1625 Hornby is being reclad. This highrise is located on the seaside bike route along Seabreeze Walk it and was built in 1987. It is otherwise known as the “Seawalk North” building and it contains 66 strata units and a few shops and services.

It’s a mere block away from the tower we featured in our previous post: Tower at 907 Beach Avenue is being reclad. Only 20 years old. Sign of the times? An open question is will other highrises in Downtown Vancouver of a similar vintage require extensive building envelope renovations in the near future? As we previously noted, the repairs can average around $50,000 per standard sized unit, depending on the nature of the repairs that are needed.

Several photos of the building and area are included in the following slideshow; the Seawalk North building can also be seen from the Burrard Bridge.
