Parq, a LEED Gold "urban resort" with two hotels, eight restaurants and a casino is scheduled to open in Vancouver in fall 2017 adjacent to BC Place Stadium. The $600-million-dollar Parq complex features a JW Marriott hotel (Western Canada’s first); The Douglas (an Autograph Collection boutique hotel); eight diverse restaurants and lounges (inspired by two-time James Beard Nominated Restaurateur Elizabeth Blau); a lush 30,000-square-foot rooftop park (showcasing indigenous plants and a forest of native trees); gaming space; and 62,000 square feet of meeting and event space, including the largest hotel ballroom in Vancouver. The complex will include 466 rooms and 51 suites (329 rooms at the JW Marriott and 188 rooms at The Douglas). Once open, Parq will be the only LEED Gold-certified hotel complex in Vancouver.
