One of the more dramatic of 14 non-market projects being built on city-owned land with provincial funding, Gomberoff Bell Lyon’s design for Sorella on the corner of Abbott and Pender sits happily between the Sun Tower and the Cineplex Cinema sign on International Village.

Completed in Spring 2011, Atira Women’s Resources manage the 108 units, while the City of Vancouver are landlords to the retail space with a striking zig-zag canopy roof. The site was acquired as part of the International Village condo project next door, which has six strata towers over a retail mall and street front stores, including a T&T supermarket.
