Green Skyline '09 - Tour of Vancouver's Green Commercial Buildings (Group #1)

Green Skyline '09: Tour the future of the built environment

Walk with us on Cascadia’s third annual tour of innovative green buildings throughout Vancouver. The tours demonstrate to the public and industry what green design, construction, and operations look like. Tours of commercial buildings will be held in Vancouver on the afternoon of Thursday, Oct 22nd.

Green Skyline showcases sustainable building achievements and provides the public an opportunity to see the ways buildings can achieve LEED and other high performance standards. You'll be able to take with you a better understanding of innovative green features and systems.

Click here for more tour details, including tour schedule, maps, and photos of the buildings.

Our tour starts with the recently rebuilt heritage building and city landmark, the Flack Block. Then we continue on to the Shangri-La, a high-profile Vancouver landmark with a green roof and high performance geothermal heating and cooling system.  We continue further into downtown for a stop at Omicron to see the cost and benefit of green renovations to commercial spaces. We finish with a tour of the Listel, a green boutique hotel that successfully implemented solar retrofits for its guests.
