An architectural Icon for Metro Vancouver
From London's Heron Tower to Shanghai's World Financial Center, New York-based, globally famous architects Kohn Pederson Fox Associates (KPF) have designed some of the world's most iconic architecture. Drawing inspiration from around the world, KPF introduces a new benchmark of design to Metro Vancouver – a building that stands with unwavering prominence in Burnaby. 6000 McKay, the final tower at Station Square, is an international landmark, flawlessly complementing KPF’s portfolio of icons.
A VIBRANT STREETSCAPE
Station Square’s significance is largely attributed to the pedestrian-friendly streetscape, reminiscent of a vibrant European promenade. The community has grown to appreciate the variety of shops, restaurants, and services offered in this unique urban setting, and will soon benefit from additional retail with the completion of 6000 McKay.
