Rize Picks: Our favourite iconic buildings around the world

Christmas may still be a few days away, but Rize Alliance got an early present this year. The Rolston is finally complete! Many of our homeowners moved in earlier this month, just in time to settle in and put up their holiday decorations.

It turns out The Rolston’s presence in Vancouver’s Midtown neighbourhood hasn’t gone unnoticed. Last month, local newspaper 24 Hours interviewed our sales manager, Sean Stevens, about The Rolston’s distinctive geometric design. Our team has always loved the eye-catching design, but it turns out we weren’t alone. Pedestrians walking past have been stopping and pulling out their phones to snap pictures the tower’s unique architectural style.

As Rize Alliance prepares to hand off the keys to The Rolston, we hope that our pride and joy will one day be considered an iconic building in the downtown Vancouver skyline. In the meantime, our team members are reflecting on some of the iconic buildings around the world that have shaped our love of architecture and design.
