Vancouver’s first LEED Platinum Heritage Conversion



A question that has beleaguered many of us over the years is how to relish in luxury while prioritizing the current needs of the climate and environment. Look no further than with the EXchange Hotel Vancouver, as we pave the way to a hotel experience that is luxurious, convenient and eco-friendly. With the future of our environment as our inspiration, we placed utmost importance in the sourcing and building methodology, which respectfully acknowledges Mother Nature through elegance, style and charisma. We are proud to recognize many aspects of our property with LEED™ status - LEED™, being the benchmark for certifying the world’s greenest buildings. You will see this as you enter your room, as it is complete with LEED™ certified Harbinger Sherlock flooring, a recycled and re-usable material locally made in Canada.

Our beautiful carpeting is also skillfully composed using an advanced methodology, and incorporates recycled post-consumer and post-industrial content (like plastic drink bottles) to create a product that is comfortable, safe, environmentally conscious and also LEED™ certified. The paint and wall finishes within the hotel significantly reduce the negative effects and odors that are associated with typical indoor paints which makes it much better for the air quality and the beautiful individuals within it. Feel the future against your skin with astonishing heating and cooling systems provided by a state of the art ceiling system that turns the ceiling into an optimal air conditioning system that is highly energy-efficient and provides quick response times as well as maximum comfort and air quality. This also utilizes the exchange building’s environmentally friendly geothermal heat-exchange system, and makes you feel like you are on the new side of history while savouring the old world elegance of the exhilarating 20th century. Our eco-minded strategy goes deeper into the details with the EXchange Hotel’s bathrooms, which have efficient and elegantly designed fixtures that greatly increase water savings, while not sacrificing the water temperature or pressure. An ingenious non-potable water system is also in place to supply water to the toilet systems, applying storm water and ground water, which greatly contributes to a huge increase in water savings; meaning we can focus more on the amenities and special details to make your stay even more memorable! Every single light inside the EXchange Hotel is LED including the high-quality Il Pezzo fixtures and lit vanity mirrors, meaning less energy usage and better lighting for every guest’s needs – making for a brighter room and a brighter future for generations to come.



HISTORY

The Old Stock Exchange Building, first opened in 1929, made striking use of a variety of materials and was an eclectic approach to architecture common in the Edwardian era. The original structure was conceived by Townley, Matheson & Partners (1919-1974), a major Vancouver architectural firm throughout most of the 20th century. The partnership created over 1100 designs, most notably Vancouver City Hall and The Vancouver Stock Exchange.
