The site at 102 East 4th Avenue has been cleared for a mixed-use industrial and office building. The project is developed by Westbank, with design and application by Henriquez Partners Architects, and is part of a new tech campus with future tenants to include WeWork and Hootsuite.
Plans call for the construction of an 8-storey building with a gross floor area of 16,378 square metres. The first and second storeys will contain light industrial space, the third, fourth, and fifth storeys will contain digital industry space, and floors 5-8 will contain office space. There will be five levels of underground parking with a total of 394 spaces. There will also be 54 bicycle parking spaces.
The building will have various indoor and outdoor amenity spaces, mainly in the form of outdoor landscaped roof decks with views of the ocean and mountains. For sustainability, the project will target LEED Gold certification, and will connect to False Creek District Energy.
The project is part of a larger plan for a technology and industrial campus in the area. The location is well served by transit, including several bus lines and is only a 5-minute walk to the Main Street-Science World SkyTrain station. The area has many restaurants, parks, breweries, and other amenities.
SkyriseVancouver will be sure to return to this project as progress continues. For more information, check out the associated Database file and Forum thread, and as always, feel free to join the conversation in the comments section below.
