Bjarke Ingels’ 52-Storey Landmark Approved
"Beach and Howe will be part of a new phase in Vancouver’s very short but extremely successful history of urban policy. It will announce the entry point into downtown Vancouver from Granville Bridge, forming a gateway to the city.

" As quoted on Buzz Buzz Homes.
This new development is seen in places like New York, Miami, and Calgary.
