Site Tour – New Westminster Anvil Centre and Office Tower
About the Anvil Centre & Office tower: This facility will mark the gateway to New Westminster's downtown. It will be four stories and over 95,000 square feet, including conference and meeting facilities, a 350-seat theatre, civic art gallery, the City’s Museum and Archives, and the Canadian Lacrosse Hall of Fame. Above the civic facility will be a nine storey, 139,000 square foot office building named Merchant Square. The project includes a 265 car below grade parkade. The entire project is designed to meet LEED Gold standards for energy efficient and environmentally sustainable design.
This signature, gateway building promises a culturally rich future for the City. The design of this project is a collaboration of Hughes Condon Marler Architects and MCM Interiors.
