Occupying prime real estate in downtown Vancouver with dramatic views of the harbour and North Shore Mountains, the new 20,000-square-foot Cactus Club Coal Harbour four-level flagship restaurant weaves together interior design, architecture and urban design in a unified manner that functions as a living part of both the city and the waterfront by framing the city’s largest public urban space – the iconic Jack Poole Plaza that houses the Olympic Cauldron – with panoramic views of the urban cityscape and stunning natural setting.
Located within the Vancouver Convention Centre complex, the building is integrated into the LEED Platinum Vancouver Convention Centre’s highly efficient systems. The restaurant also employs a green roof, which is accessible by both stairs and a glass-sided elevator.
“The level of quality that Cactus Club demands in terms of design and materiality allows us to work with very high-quality materials. You will also find the level of comfort in any one of their restaurants is equal across the collection,” said Mark Ostry, Principal of Acton Ostry Architects.
