BT Investments Ltd. is now accepting expressions of interest from artists or artist teams to design and integrate site-specific public art at their new 131 East Third street development called 'The Anchor' in North Vancouver.
The development is mixed use, condos, market rental units and commercial ground floor unit. The choice of building name, 'The Anchor', reflects several themes. It has an obvious ship building connotation, and as well represents some symbolism for an opportunity for those downsizing, or those looking to stay where they were brought up, to 'Anchor' themselves to the North Shore. The building should attract locals and the 'Anchor' motif may give inspiration to artists expanding upon that theme.
