Apple is said to be a "key owner" of the upcoming 400 West Georgia developments in Vancouver, described as a "futuristic tower." It is currently slated to be completed once in the spring of next year. Apple allegedly picks up around two floors in the 24-story building.
The futuristic tower – a rotating stack of huge glassy cubes, is said to be inspired by a Japanese paper lantern – scheduled to be completed in spring 2020, according to Westbank's website. The entire development will be 367,000 square meters. Deloitte Canada's headquarters in Vancouver will occupy about 117,000 square feet on the top 10 floors, while Spaces will rent around 120,000 square feet.
Apple wants a remarkable neighbor at this new development. Amazon is currently developing a "bunker-like" building across the street that used to be a post office in the Canada Post. That development is being converted to 416,000 square feet home to new Amazon offices.
In 2015, Apple moved its Canadian HQ to new offices in downtown on the outskirts of Toronto, near its flagship Eaton Center store.
