About This Project

The XL, Vancouver, B.C.

Considered one of AMA's "flagship" multi-family designs, the XL is a unique live-work building located in Vancouver's Mount Pleasant neighbourhood. Completed in 1999, this mixed-use residence has proven to be a timeless design and ideal space for artists and other like-minded residents to live, work and play.
The design capitalizes on reinforced concrete construction for its 23 "industrial-chic" lofts, and 54 one and two bedroom-plus-den lofts that feature stunning 16' ceilings. Rectilinear lines, glass and use of concrete materials are softened with reverse barrel canopies, for a modern appearance with a residential feel that reflects the neighborhood's urban, family-oriented character. Inside, are airy open concept lofts, with steel spiral staircases and gas fireplaces.
