It has made an impression on Vancouver and set the tone for future sustainable multi-use high rises in our City. This would not have been possible without the visionary leadership of TELUS CEO Darren Entwistle and Westbank CEO Ian Gillespie who paved the way for innovative design and for setting compelling goals in technology and sustainability.”
