In the 60’s and 70’s, Robson Street’s Pacific Palisades hotel and regularly queued up hotel bar, was the hotspot for celebrities to stay and play. It hosted a who’s who of Hollywood including Bob Hope, Johnny Depp and Sharon Stone to name drop a few.
When the hotel closed in 2010, Vancouverites wondered what would happen to these historical towers familiar in the city skyline. Developers Austeville Properties had the answer. Austeville saw an opportunity to create a unique urban rental community in the popular West End neighbourhood while paying homage to the Palisades storied history, architecture and design roots.
With the vision of W.T Leung Architects and Proscenium Interior Design Architects, the team gave PaPa V2.0 an updated look with the underlying West Coast Modernism theme in the design plan. Wood is heavily featured as both building and accent material. Drool worthy suite amenities include quartz countertops, deep soaker tubs, white oak hardwood floors and Grohe faucets and fixtures throughout.
