Grosvenor is pleased to present its newest proposed development in Vancouver at 1380-1382 Hornby Street. Designed by ACDF Architecture and IBI Group Architects, this development concept aims to provide an elegant and exciting new addition to the Hornby Slopes neighbourhood.
Grosvenor’s interest and experience in Vancouver is well established, beginning over 60 years ago when the City was selected to expand our property investment and development business beyond the United Kingdom to North America. Grosvenor’s development experience extends to residential, commercial and mixed-use projects. Some examples of recent Grosvenor Projects in the Lower Mainland include The Rise, 5955 Balsam, 15 West, Grosvenor Ambleside and Connaught.
Grosvenor Pacific is a short walk to False Creek, the seawall, and the Aquabus which provides convenient access to Granville Island, Olympic Village and other popular waterfront destinations. The downtown core, Sunset Beach and Stanley Park are also within walking distance, as well as Vancouver’s thriving network of bicycle lanes. This is one of the City’s most established residential neighbourhoods, and is poised to become even more enriched with the addition of new residents, arts and culture, and retail amenities.
When Grosvenor undertakes a project in a neighbourhood like Hornby Slopes, we are informed by our Living cities philosophy to understand the values of the people who live, work, and recreate in the community. It’s about creating developments that are tailored to the community, and that bring together the essential mix of residential, commercial, and public realm suited to special places like Hornby Slopes.
Architecture firms ACDF and IBI Group Architects have designed a 375 foot residential tower comprising approximately 212 homes including townhomes, 238 underground parking stalls and 266 bike stalls*. The development concept also includes plans for amenity space, enhanced landscaping and public realm.
The building design is based on the following urban design principles:
- Celebration of Leslie House through restoration and retention on-site
- Respect for adjacent lower scale buildings, and
- A high-quality architectural design that is timeless, refined, and elegant.
The design concept uses volume and materiality to create a tower that is both graceful and well-suited to its surroundings, meant to stand the test of time in a long established neighbourhood. Additionally, Grosvenor is committed to sustainable design and will be designing the building to LEED Gold standards.

Leslie House, also known as Umberto Menghi’s Il Giardino restaurant and one of Vancouver’s beloved landmarks, holds significant cultural and historic value – it is an asset to the community. Built in c. 1888, Leslie House is one of the oldest surviving examples of example of a ‘cottage’ Queen Anne Victorian house, a style familiar to Vancouver in the 1890s and 1900s.
Leslie House is protected through a Heritage Revitalization Agreement which ensures that the character defining aspects of the interior and exterior of the house are protected. Designated a Class-A heritage building, the house will be restored and thoughtfully incorporated into the project design.
