999 Seymour

Acton Ostry Architects as Architects

Located at the crossroads of the YaletownNeighbourhood, the Granville Street Entertainment District, and the Business District of Downtown Vancouver, 999 Seymour is an 11,600 square metre, 22-storey mixed-use development with commercial space on the first two levels, a shared gym for residential and commercial tenants on the 3rd level, residential and commercial spaces from the 4th to 7th levels, and 15 levels of residential units above.


Creating a harmonious relationship between commercial and residential uses was a key consideration for the project. The commercial and residential uses each have unique, separate entrances. To further distinguish each use, the commercial two-storey podium base is oriented toward Seymour Street and reflects adjacent massing, whereas the slender, articulated residential tower component is oriented toward Nelson Street.


The 134 studio, one- and two-bedroom units, range between 46 square metres to 110 square metres and feature sliding glass wall systems and over-sized balconies. The south-facing facade features continuous balconies with moveable, perforated anodized aluminum sun screens and a vertical accent of vibrant green and blue translucent glass. The deep balconies provide passive solar control, enhanced building envelope protection, increased privacy and a high degree of livability. Glazing at the north elevation is limited due to the proximity of a neighbouring building with openings located to maximize livability within the units.


The project features three large outdoor terraces with extensive planting, a BBQ and fireplace area, a multi-media room, social lounge, games area, a yoga studio and fitness centre and bike storage.


With a walking score of 100, commuters to and from 999 Seymour can conveniently access public transit, a nearby network of bike lanes or utilize an on-site car share program.
