The Milano combines tradition with contemporary style in a unique and striking tower. Highly efficient units include studios and one and two bedroom suites designed to provide affordable housing for first time buyers. Many units feature dens planned to provide home office potential. The typical floor layout arranges the units to maximize views, reflected in the dramatic sweep of curtain wall facing the city and north shore mountains.
Located at the corner of Burrard and Burnaby Streets in downtown Vancouver, the building features a punched brick facade responding to the city’s traditional rectilinear street grid system. Within these facades, generous windows and French balconies offer visual depth and shading.
To the north and west a sleek glass curtain wall features mullion-less vertical joints and dramatically expressed horizontal metallic bands. This contemporary theme is continued in the detailing of the glazed retail canopies and cantilevered roof top trellises. Garden terraces complement the eight uniquely designed two storey penthouses.
