The Terminal District is Vancouver’s next great neighbourhood, concentrating the region’s most forward-thinking industries inside a thriving hub in the False Creek Flats. Adding to this community’s growing acclaim is The Onyx at 1296 Station Street. Its sculptural innovation and thoughtful floor plans make this one of the most talked-about commercial and retail structures in the city.
It begins as a simple layered form, strong in character and striking in its balance of light and dark. With a translucent, shimmering black exterior – like the stone it takes its name from – The Onyx’s interior spaces, by careful contrast, draw in sunlight and radiate warmth. Examine it more closely and see how its framework spirals skyward. The structure genuflects around and away from the SkyTrain rails, infusing itself with energy. In every way, this artful design shows a deep appreciation for the ways this neighbourhood moves and the progressive spirit it represents.
