Grand Boulevard

6403 Grand Boulevard replaces an outdated two storey building at the gateway into Nichols Hills, taking advantage of the site’s unique relationship with Grand Boulevard and 63rd Street. The new four storey office building marks the transition between the more urban condition to the south and the picturesque residential neighbourhood to the north. A heavy limestone frame is playfully articulated with cantilevered corners that erode the formal impression and animate its surroundings with a sense of its life within. Deeply recessed within the substantial grid sit large glazing panels accented with extruded bronze channels. The building offers a memorable journey throughout, from entry into a spacious and active lobby, through a light-filled core and on to generously proportioned and efficient office accommodation. Finishes are robust, elegant and minimal, offering flexibility for tenants to configure, reconfigure and fit out according to their changing needs. Each floor is well served by volume, light and solar automation, giving users control over their surroundings and comfort. A formal, yet playful and seasonally responsive landscape scheme reinforces the architectural grid.
