Currently under construction, Hanson Square is a mixed-use retail/commercial development, with two levels of retail and two levels of office space. It is located in the bustling heart of Uptown 17th Avenue, at the corner of 17th Avenue and 8th Street SW. Paying particular attention to context, Hanson Square aims to integrate seamlessly with the scale and character of the community. The project achieves this goal through its four storey tiered design that maintains the pedestrian scale of 17th and the use of traditional materials which compliment the existing streetscape. While the building echoes the traditions of the area it also incorporates major contemporary elements, demonstrated by the sleek double height glazed entrance. Unique to this project, an artist has provided original paintings for Hanson Square which now line the construction hoardings along 17th Avenue, enhancing and introducing new culture to the streetscape. This is an exciting project and we’re looking forward to its completion!
