Local and international architects have been invited to take part in a special review for a proposed Vancouver high-rise.
The Urban Design Panel has set a meeting on Tuesday (February 20) to evaluate the design of a 54-storey tower at the north end of Granville Bridge.
The development at 601 Beach Crescent, a property that used to be owned by the City of Vancouver, is subject to a rezoning application.
In its agenda posted online ahead of the meeting next week, the Urban Design Panel listed the following local architects among the guest panelists: Peter Cardew of Peter Cardew Archiects, Karen Marler of HCMA Architecture + Design, and Mark Ostry of Acton Ostry Architects.

Two international architects will also take part in the discussions: Laura Jimenez of the Chicago-based Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture, and Robin Williams of the Los Angeles- and New York City-based Morphosis Architect.
A rezoning application was filed last year by GBL Architects Ltd. on behalf of Pinnacle.
The project will have 303 condo units for private buyers, 152 social housing units, which will be turned over to the city.
