Jameson House – Vancouver Luxury Condos
Looking for a new architectural icon in Vancouver? The Jameson House by Foster and Partner Associates provides Vancouver luxury condos and residences.

The Jameson House in downtown Vancouver is all about unique architecture, sophisticated living and lifestyle. Planned by Foster and Partner Associates, the Jameson House Vancouver is set to become one of the most unique exterior buildings as well as luxurious residences in the city.

June 2009 Update! Jameson House Vancouver Condo Project Gets Green Light – Second Chance at Developing Unique High-Rise Residences
According to 24 Hours Vancouver, the pre-construction downtown Vancouver Jameson House condominium tower that never got beyond a hole in the ground, may have found a second life. However, it is uncertain whether or not the pre-construction Vancouver Jameson House condos will be built with the same design as before. The real estate developers behind the luxury Downtown Vancouver condo project at the Jameson House condominiums that were cancelled last fall due to the global economic crisis may be resuscitated as another Vancouver developer may come into the fold to help fund the completion of the luxury residences. It’s been quite a mess ever since the original builders from the local Pappajohn family has been mired in a BC court battle with pre-sale Vancouver Jameson House condominums home buyers who wanted to sue for damages and their deposits returned. Now, with the recent news coming that the Jameson House condo project may be revived, these current homebuyers who purchased pre-construction Vancouver condominiums are left wondering if the project will go ahead as planned with the same design and floor plans, or if something entirely different will be built. The Jameson House Vancouver located on Hastings Street in downtown was billed as the high end beyond luxury development that is designed by Noram Foster. From sweeping panoramic views of the water, mountains and cityscape in addition to a fully automated underground parkade where cars would park themselves, there was nothing even close to the boutique nature of the pre-construction Vancouver Jameson House condos at the time. However, the developers ran into financial problems during the height of the financial crisis last fall and the Jameson House was put on hold while the developer applied for bankruptcy protection. Already approved by the BC Supreme Court, the restructuring plans for the eventual development of the Jameson House, Bosa Properties, another local Vancouver developer, will step in and take a fifty per cent (half) control of the Jameson House Vancouver condo project as of now. However, the contentious issue right now regarding this restructure of the new Jameson House Vancouver real estate development is that the new developer, Bosa Properties, will need to hold onto the intial deposits that were put down on pre-construction condominiums by presale purchasers more than two years ago or even longer. Now, some of the pre-sale Jameson House Vancouver real estate buyers are wondering if the original plans are actually moving forward, or if details of the new project are going to be kept secret until much later. According to several pre-construction Vancouver condo purchasers, this will make presale buyers more aware of the potential problems that can arise when a developer files for bankruptcies and the subsequent changes that are out of pre-construction home buyers. Neither of the developers, including Bosa Properties, were available for comment yesterday.

BREAKING NEWS: Downtown Vancouver Jameson House Condo Developer seeks creditor protection as financing for 37-storey mixed-use downtown development evaporates - Posted November 25th, 2008
It looks like another downtown Vancouver real estate development has been temporarily put on hold or cancelled as the Jameson House by Foster and Partner Associates has sought protection from creditors under the B.C. Supreme Court on Nov 14th, 2008. Currently, it indicates that Foster and Partners is trying to secure financing for teh Jameson House Vancouver downtown condo development from Ernst & Young but that has not yet gone through. Back in December of 2007, the pre-construction Jameson House condo high-rise tower in the heart of Vancouver downtown real estate district broke ground and the anticipated 37 storey tower was touted as one of the most luxurious residences in the city. With almost fifty million dollars in financing by mezzanine lenders and also a commitment from HSBC, the Foster and Partners Jameson House Vancouver condo highrise seemed to be fine. However, during the past summer of 2008, with credit financing and lending shrinking throughout the world, the Jameson House condominium financing also ran dry. As of May 2008, HSBC had only offered a loan of $165M which was later dropped by $10M which Foster and Partners would have had to cover through other forms of financing, which was not possible. By late October, one of the mezzanine lenders for the downtown Vancouver Jameson House condos put on hold indicated that they would freeze the loan and ten days later, the creditors followed. As there are many questions surrounding the possible cancellation of the Vancouver condo put on hold at Jameson House downtown high-rise, the report indicated that most of the liquid cash has been exhausted. The total Vancouver real estate development project was to make $240M with the presales of Jameson House condos already garnering more than $155M. Jameson Development Group contributed $10M to the project by thte top three creditors that include Rennie Marketing Systems, Westpro Construction and Foster and Partner are said to be owed more than $3M at this point in time. The recent cancellation of Vancouver condo projects have put much fear in teh marketplace, but hte Jameson House condominiums in downtown were already 65% sold out with 144 condos sold with a targeted completion of fall of 2009. Work stopped on November 12th. So as of right now, the downtown Vancouver Jameson House condos are on hold until financing is secured.
