Future homeowners with a head for heights will love this new development in Vancouver – because it has cantilevered pieces across the street.
The images reveal how these floating pieces make the new residential tower look like a game from Jenga. Being inside “will create the sensation of floating above the city, the ocean and the mountains”, says Ole Scheeren, the famous German architect behind the condominium.
Construction of the 42-story tower, called “Fifteen Fifteen”, is underway in the Coal Harbor district of the Canadian city, and the year of its opening is scheduled for 2026.
The ‘Fifteen Fifteen’ development in Vancouver has cantilevered rooms on the street
The cantilevered glass rooms, reinforced by steel columns, are a feature of the building’s 18 âobservatory residencesâ. These apartments, referred to as ‘boxes of glass in the sky’, are on the market with a starting price of Â£ 3.2million (C $ 5.6million).
The entrance to each âObservatory residenceâ will have oak parquet floors and the bathrooms will be decorated with a âfloating vanityâ and terrazzo walls.
Going up the tower, there will be four penthouses available from the 39th to 42nd floors of the building, each with balconies, âgenerous ceiling heightsâ and open kitchens.
The 42-story tower is slated to be built in Vancouver’s Coal Harbor neighborhood and is slated to open in 2026

Coming down from the tower, the Sky Lounge – another cantilevered space – will be located on level 29 and will offer â270 degree panoramasâ of Vancouver. This lounge will be exclusive to residents and has “imposing double height windows”.
A statement describes the common area as “the most spectacular space in all of Vancouver”. The architect explains: âIt was a very important decision to give one of the best spaces in the whole building to all residents.
Elsewhere in the tower, there will be studios and one-, two- and three-bedroom houses, ranging in size from 1,089 square feet (101 square meters) to over 3,000 square feet (279 square meters).
The recreation center will be located on level four, providing an “intimate boutique style experience, much like a private gym in your own home”.
Being inside one of the cantilevered rooms âwill create the feeling of floating above the city, the ocean and the mountains,â the architects say.

Scheeren says: âFor many years I have explored the question of how we want to live in relation to our own private spaces as well as our communities, our cities and the environment – and what architecture means in it. this context.
âBorn from an idea of ââlife in three dimensions, the strong sculptural form of Fifteen Fifteen introduces horizontality into an urban tower. Its distinctive silhouette stems from the idea of ââactivation. Fifteen Fifteen is about connectivity – connecting people to each other and their surroundings – and offers an interactive way of life. ‘
