Harlin at River District, developed by Wesgroup Properties, is a prominent addition to South Vancouver‘s landscape. This project, designed by Boniface Oleksiuk Politano Architects, is a testament to the area’s rich forest industry history and its proximity to the Fraser River. The development’s façade, with its rippled edges, is a nod to these historical and geographical elements.
