IBI/HB Architects and Rockwell Group have been selected to design Paragon Development's new $450m entertainment centre at BC Place stadium in Vancouver.

Paragon has named IBI/HB Architects as architect of record and Rockwell Group as design architect for the project, which was launched in March 2009.

Paragon hopes the project, scheduled to begin construction in 2011, will provide a comprehensive gaming and leisure experience in British Columbia.

It will incorporate two internationally branded hotels, five restaurants and a pedestrian streetscape.

It will feature over 100,000ft² of gaming floor and direct access to BC Place.
