The Pacific is a result of Grosvenor’s vision to contribute a timeless architectural landmark to the skyline of one of the world’s most admired cities. This vision is shared by the team behind The Pacific which is made up of a selection of Canada’s leading architects, designers, engineers, builders and artists. Our approach to this special development reflects Grosvenor’s larger commitment to building vibrant communities across Great Britain, North America, Asia and Europe for more than 340 years. We are pleased to present The Pacific as the first opportunity to own a Grosvenor address in downtown Vancouver.
CITY + NATURE
Vancouver embodies the modern ideals of the world’s most livable cities.
Its unique urban identity – a result of global leadership in planning and architecture – is enhanced and softened by a spectacular setting. Vancouver’s urban and natural edges meet at downtown’s bright southern shore. Parks, sandy beaches and seaside restaurants define this established residential neighbourhood.
PACIFIC + HORNBY
The Pacific is the next chapter in the legacy of this location and a timeless addition to Vancouver’s skyline.
For over a century this property has been – and will continue to be – home to Leslie House, a local landmark with a storied history. The “little yellow house” is best known as the location of Il Giardino restaurant and is one of the oldest remaining homes in downtown Vancouver. From a distance, The Pacific’s simplicity shines with an understated elegance. Up close, the architectural complexity is revealed in its details. The result is a building of sophisticated stature that responds to its prominent location.
WORLD CLASS VIEWS
Views span from the North Shore Mountains to Stanley Park, west to English Bay and Vancouver Island and across the downtown skyline to False Creek.

FOR MORE THAN THREE CENTURIES, GROSVENOR HAS
MANAGED OVER 300 ACRES OF PROPERTY IN LONDON’S
BELGRAVIA AND MAYFAIR DISTRICTS, TWO OF THE WORLD’S
MOST DESIRABLE NEIGHBOURHOODS.
Since developing London’s fashionable Mayfair in the 1720s and elegant Belgravia a hundred years later, the Grosvenor name has been associated with world-class real estate. Today, we are one of the world’s largest privately owned property businesses. Our interest and experience in Vancouver is well established, beginning over 60 years ago when we expanded our property investment, management and development business to North America. We have been active in residential development much of this time and aim to make long-term contributions to the neighbourhoods in which we are active by using creative design and high-quality building methods in all our projects. For The Pacific, as with all of Grosvenor’s developments, decisions are made locally, based on respect for the uniqueness of the place, the people who live there and the detailed knowledge of our specialist teams.

GROSVENOR’S LIVING CITIES PHILOSOPHY
At Grosvenor, we aim to make a lasting contribution, today and for future generations, to the economic, social and environmental wellbeing of the urban communities of which we are part. This is the foundation of Grosvenor’s ‘Living cities’ philosophy, which guides our activities to help foster thriving places which reflect the spirit of individual cities, ultimately contributing to their enduring success.
The Pacific has been designed with this framework in mind.

ARCHITECTURE + DESIGN
The Pacific’s architecture reflects a desire for quiet sophistication that commands attention without extravagance. On the tower’s north and south facades, a sleek curtain of floor-to-ceiling windows lends a clean, elegant finish. On the east and west facades, deep balconies in shades of white and grey create a sense of movement and texture from afar and below. A brushed stainless steel frame extends the height of the tower, giving each facade its own identity. This use of contrast and reflection brings The Pacific to life, allowing the tower to mirror the sky’s mood.
ART + CULTURE
In the 1880s, George Leslie built a Queen Anne-style home on Hornby Street that came to be known as Leslie House. Ninety years later, the heritage residence formed part of Umberto Menghi’s famed Il Giardino restaurant. Today, Leslie House is a local landmark and an asset to the community. As one of Vancouver’s treasured heritage homes, the “little yellow house” will be carefully restored and relocated to Pacific Street.
Grosvenor values arts and culture and understands the positive impact they can have on vibrancy and diversity in cities. At The Pacific, a Canadian artist has been commissioned to create a public art installation that aims to respond to the architecture and engage with the community. Across the lane, Grosvenor will be constructing a seven-storey building to be given to the City of Vancouver that will provide brand new space for artists and cultural organizations to come together.
At Grosvenor, sustainability means constructing buildings that not only limit their impact on the environment, but are also designed for longevity. In addition to being centrally located in the amenity-rich downtown core, The Pacific will target a measurable reduction in energy and water use through LEED® Gold certification. The design includes high-performance triple-glazed windows on the north and south facades, and balconies on the east and west facades that naturally cool the building by providing shade.
The new arts and culture building is designed to meet the rigorous criteria of Passive House – an internationally recognized standard of sustainable building practices.
SENSE OF ARRIVAL
Step into a grand over-height lobby. Materials that complement the tower’s exterior extend inside to create a welcoming and impressive experience. As a resident, you will enjoy 24-hour concierge service and the convenience of additional lobby access via a dedicated private driveway.
TERRACE + LOUNGE + FITNESS
A thoughtfully landscaped and illuminated terrace provides an area for outdoor cooking and dining with intimate seating areas that connect to an elegantly appointed lounge and entertainment space inside. A well-equipped fitness centre designed in collaboration with Elite Performance TM offers a bright and private space for cardio, weight training and floor-based exercise.
Inspired by The Pacific’s timeless architecture, the interior of each home has been meticulously designed for optimal form and function. Italian millwork by Snaidero is custom configured for every kitchen, bathroom and master and walk-in closet. Snaidero’s dedication to innovation, attention to detail and craftsmanship aligns with Grosvenor’s vision for The Pacific.
Refined materials throughout each home include wide- plank engineered hardwood flooring and natural stone. Expansive windows frame views and draw in light. Three colour palettes draw on the rich neutral tones of the tower’s exterior, ranging from fresh and bright, to warm and tranquil, to bold and strong.
The heart of your home is engineered by Snaidero and outfitted with professional-grade appliances from Sub-Zero, Wolf and Miele. Features include ample storage in deep nested drawers, full-height pull-out pantries and hidden cabinetry in custom kitchen islands.
Other thoughtful details include upper cabinets that open and close with one touch, under-cabinet lighting and custom cutlery inserts in soft-closing drawers.
Features vary by home
Generous windows and sliding glass doors optimize natural light that can be concealed or diffused with sleek window shades.
Snaidero has thoughtfully configured each master and walk-in closet to include ample hanging space and custom dressers.
Features vary by home
Refined materials continue throughout each master bathroom with an expanse of marble on walls, across heated floors, and surrounding frameless glass rain showers and deep soaker tubs.
