At the corner of Robson and Cambie, Amacon’s Block Residences puts you in the epicentre of the best Vancouver has to offer, where boutiques, art galleries and award-winning restaurants await. That’s not all, Block Residences is nearby sports and concert venues large and small. It’s no wonder Block Residences is 75 per cent sold.  

To celebrate the Lunar New Year, Amacon is offering with a $30,000 credit on two-bedroom homes or a $50,000 credit on three-bedroom homes until Feb 5. In addition, buyers can select a lucky red pocket envelope to win an additional credit on their home ranging from $1,888 to $8,888.   

“This is an attractive downtown location.  It’s steps from BC Place, home to a diverse range of sporting, cultural and entertainment as well as global events like the upcoming FIFA World Cup 2026” says Stephanie Babineau, Vice president of marketing and sales at Amacon. “It’s a rare opportunity to build a new construction in one of Vancouver’s most iconic locations, giving buyers access to a new home in the heart of the city.” 


Formally the Northern Electric Building, Block Residences is being brought back to life by award-winning GBL Architects. This mixed-use development will be comprised of a 4-storey heritage building, a 29-storey residential tower which includes 187 homes and a separate 6-storey boutique hotel on the east end of the site.“There will be a romantic blend of old and new –  the geometric design of the residential tower will honour the traditional architecture at its base.”, says Babineau.


Conceived by CHIL Interior Design, a global leader in design, Block Residences connects both living and dining space with an open-plan design that invites the flow of functional modern living. Materials and finishes were chosen to set a sophisticated, character-rich palette. Think brushed oak hardwood floors throughout, sleek roller shades, and dream primary bedroom custom closets.

Spacious, spa-inspired, deep-soaking bathtubs blend beauty with function. Finished with a polished porcelain tile surround to all baths and showers, chic brushed nickel Kohler accessories, including a 48-nozzle spray face and Katalyst Air-Induction technology. 


Kitchens transition easily from informal to formal; perfect for making a home-cooked meal or hosting a dinner party. Expansive and open, each epicurean kitchen features thoughtfully considered materials complementing European appliances with black stainless-steel accents, two-toned cabinetry and polished quartz countertops and backsplash. 

Each residence opens onto a balcony with spectacular city views and fresco living unfolds high above the energy of downtown Vancouver. 


Residents will appreciate effortless living with hotel-inspired services and thoughtful touches, with a dedicated concierge, space for wellness, and a luxurious social lounge. Turn-key living awaits at Block.

Block is about buying into a lifestyle; where at your doorstep, you are within minutes of the entertainment, arts and culture scenes, like Yaletown, with its fabulous shops and eateries, and the downtown core.
