Revitalizing a Vancouver Legacy: Shannon Estate Redevelopment


Located in the Kerrisdale Community of Vancouver, BC, the Shannon Estate is a unique 10-acre site that has undergone three periods of evolution over the past century and a quarter. Originally, Shannon Estate, a Beaux Arts brick mansion with formal Italianate gardens and mature landscaping, was carved out of the wilderness for B.T. Rogers’ country estate in 1912. In the early 1970s, the Shannon Estate transformed into Shannon Mews with the densification of the site, featuring Erickson/Massey Architects’ modernist townhouses and apartments. With increasing pressure on large sites within the City of Vancouver to densify and respond to the city’s new eco-city policy, Shannon Estate was rezoned in 2008 and densified. It saw a revitalization of the prominent historic buildings and landscape by Wall Financial, Perkins+Will Architects, Robert Lemon Architect, and Durante Kruek Landscape Architects.
