The Duke Hard Hat Tour + Rooftop Social

April 19, 2018 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm


Join us for this members only tour of The Duke by Edgar Development to learn about the building’s unique design, as well as the challenges and opportunities of developing purpose-built rental in Vancouver.

This 14-storey development, targeting LEED Gold status, is located at Broadway and Kingsway, and will feature 201 rental units, 3,976 sq ft of ground floor retail, and a dramatic art installation suspended above the building’s main entrance titled “Rain” by local artist Khan Lee. The Duke was approved by the City of Vancouver’s Rental 100 program, which provides incentives to developers for purpose-built rental buildings. The Rental 100 program aims to create 5,000 new units of market rental housing by 2021.

Following the tour, we will gather in the rooftop amenity lounge for an informal social.
