Architect Vishwesh Panchal is at the forefront of the project, which highlights a career dedicated to sustainable practices and innovative design solutions. As a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Accredited Professional, Panchal’s accomplishments in architectural design extend to such notable public projects as the San Felipe De Austin Visitor Center and the Texas A&M University Heritage Hall for firm Lord Aeck Sargent (LAS), as well as the award-winning projects of the Round Rock ISD McNeil High School renovation for firm Perkins + Will, and the preservation of the Travis County Probate Courthouse for firm LAS, all in and around Austin, Texas. These endeavors have underscored Panchal’s holistic approach to architecture, emphasizing environmental impact, community well-being, and aesthetic excellence in creating spaces that inspire and resonate with the human experience.

In the Kingsway project, Panchal as part of the Arcadis team have addressed unique challenges posed by existing structures, particularly the iconic L-shaped ‘Telus Boot’ office building, a visual landmark in the city since the mid-1970s. Overcoming site complexities required creativity and a rigorous approach to develop a design that optimized the site’s potential both technically and strategically. Panchal’s work on the project’s layout aligned seamlessly with the area’s architectural identity, emphasizing its aesthetics and functionality. Comprising two high-rise towers, 31 and 38 stories each, providing approximately 724 market rental homes, the CPC Kingsway South Phase Project is projected for completion in 2025, promising a fusion of contemporary design and sustainable principles that will reshape Burnaby’s future skyline.
