July Event: Summer Social 

Guest Speaker  

Michael Geller Architect AIBC, FCIP, RPP 


Michael Geller is a Vancouver-based architect, planner, real estate consultant and property developer with 45 years’ experience in the public, private and institutional sectors.

He has had a longstanding interest in manufactured housing since he won a CMHC Travelling Scholarship in 1970 to tour factories across the United States which were participating in the ‘Operation Breakthrough’ program.

He subsequently did his architectural thesis on modular housing and oversee design and construction of a number of modular housing projects during his tenure with CMHC.

Today Michael is President of the Geller Group and serves as an Adjunct Professor in SFU’s Centre for Sustainable Community Development, and an affiliate of UBC’s Masters in Urban Design program.

Some of his notable projects include overseeing the first phase of South Shore False Creek while working for CMHC; rezoning of the Steveston Waterfront on behalf of BC Packers; planning and development of Deering Island in Southlands, redevelopment of the Westin Bayshore Property in Coal Harbour; and UniverCity at SFU.

In addition, Michael has undertaken his own developments including a controversial high-rise in Point Grey, a controversial mid-rise building in Kerrisdale, and numerous controversial low-rise developments including Oak Gardens in Oakridge, and the Lanesborough in Kerrisdale, developed in partnership with Polygon Homes.

Recently, Michael has been involved with smaller infill projects in West Vancouver involving the conservation of heritage houses.

Michael has been honoured as a life member of the Architectural Institute of BC, a Fellow of the Canadian Institute of Planners and serves on numerous boards. He is a frequent commentator on Urban Issues and writes a bi-weekly column for the Vancouver Courier and a ‘Homes Away from Home’ column in the Vancouver Sun.
