808 Nelson is one of the most iconic towers in Vancouver’s vibrant skyline. Conveniently located across from the Provincial Law Courts and central to the city’s bests shops and restaurants, our offices enjoy easy access via the Cambie, Granville or Burrard Street Bridges and are only blocks away from major transit lines and the Skytrain Station.
The 80’s marked the evolution of Vancouver into the international city it is today, with Nelson Square being a part of Vancouver’s growing relationships with continents of the Pacific Rim, particularly Asia. In 1982, as Expo ’86 was announced, Hong Kong Architect Wong & Ouyang’s conception for Nelson Square was becoming a unique concrete and glass reality; construction began not long after the adjacent Law Courts were built in 1980, creating a symbiotic association that exists decades later, as many Nelson Square offices are favoured by law practitioners. With a nod to this history, Vancouverites can enjoy the Art Beatus Gallery at Nelson Square – an apt cultural exchange between East and West, showcasing highly acclaimed Asian works.
Nelson Square Today
Decades after the modernist ethos of Nelson Square created a prominent presence in the city, Vancouver Architect Proscenium has contributed a significant refurbishment, refining the design with clean lines and elegant finishes. The space is one of a modern community, enhanced by a public courtyard that hosts cultural events, the Art Beatus Gallery, a vibrant retail scene and a state-of-the-art fitness facility that is accessible 24/7.
