• Vancouver’s Most Anticipated New Landmark, High-rise Condominium Fifteen Fifteen, Begins Sales Previews

    15 September 2021

    (15 September 2021, Hong Kong) Fifteen Fifteen by Ole Scheeren (www.fifteenfifteen.ca) is a luxury condominium development rising in the exclusive Coal Harbour neighborhood in Vancouver, B.C., designed by renowned architect Ole Scheeren, and developed by Bosa Properties and Kingswood Properties. The tower features a series of firsts; Ole Scheeren’s first building to grace the Vancouver Skyline, as well as the practice’s first architectural project in North America.  The striking three-dimensional tower starts presales in September 2021.

    “My vision for Fifteen Fifteen was to forge an immersive three-dimensional connection between nature, urban living and personal space” said Ole Scheeren, one of the world’s most influential architects, whose work includes some of Asia’s most iconic contemporary buildings, such as the striking CCTV Tower in Beijing and the new Mahanakhon Tower in Bangkok.

    “The building actively positions the individual within its distinct community and embraces Vancouver’s breathtaking landscape. I believe that the space of architecture can not only enrich our life, but also define us as human beings.”

    Fifteen Fifteen’s most spectacular spaces—a collection of 18 Observatory Residences that introduce horizontality with dramatic glass enclosed cantilevers—project outward from the tower’s vertical mass to create the sensation of floating high above the city, the ocean, and the mountains. It’s this dramatic setting which helps Vancouver consistently rank as one of the world’s most picturesque and liveable cities. 

    Fifteen Fifteen also premiers interior residences designed exclusively by Scheeren who approached them with the same intelligence that define the architecture and engineering. Scheeren selected design-forward fittings, appliances, and state-of-the-art audio visual and home automation systems in concert with global calibre manufacturers Dada, Dornbracht, Miele, and Bang & Olufsen. 

    “Fifteen Fifteen is a culmination of so many of the lessons we have learned over our 50-year history. We were immediately drawn to Ole as he shares our vision to truly deliver on precision-driven architecture,” said Colin Bosa, CEO of Bosa Properties. “Our father founded this company on the idea of doing things right the first time and earning the trust of our customers above all else. It’s why constructing buildings at the very highest level of quality is a core value at Bosa Properties.”

    “We have partnered with one of the world’s most celebrated architects and a curated team of world class collaborators to set a new standard of luxury in Vancouver,” said Lorne Segal, O.B.C, Founder and President at Kingswood Properties. “This is a project I am really proud to be bringing to life as it meets my philosophy of quality over quantity.”

    Located at 1515 Alberni St. in the coveted Coal Harbour neighborhood, Fifteen Fifteen by Ole Scheeren is minutes from Stanley Park, the Pacific Ocean, the North Shore Mountains, and the burgeoning row of luxury boutiques along Alberni. An inspired alternative to typical urban towers, Fifteen Fifteen’s 202 residences range in price from $900K to $18M CAD. The unprecedented 69 floorplans include studios, and one-, two-, and three-bedroom homes, including 18 cantilevered Observatory Residences and four Penthouses.

    Luxury amenities include a 24-hour auto valet and concierge service, a well-appointed fitness and yoga room with locker and towel service, and a stunning amenities lounge spanning the 29th and 30th floors with 270-degree views of water, mountains, and city. Energy-efficient systems, environmentally friendly materials, and attention to indoor environmental quality—including advanced filtration systems that deliver purified air and water—support the developers’ aim of achieving a LEED Gold international sustainability certification.  Other buildings in development by Bosa Properties and/or Kingswood Properties in Metro Vancouver include iconic designs by renowned architects Gensler and Heatherwick.

    The Fifteen Fifteen Gallery is located on the 18th floor of 1500 W. Georgia St. and is open by appointment only.  Call (604) 559-1515 to make a reservation to preview.
