This office development is just completing on the new campus of Emily Carr University on the south side of the False Creek Flats. Designed by Perkins + Will for PCI, it has around 150,000 sq ft of office in 7 storeys with a small single storey retail building alongside. It was only proposed in early 2016, and the tenants are already fitting out, showing that a project that ticks all the right boxes can get approved and built relatively fast.
The tenants are an interesting mix, including an animation studio, Finning (who make Caterpillar equipment, and who donated the land to the University consortium many years ago), Samsung, and a shared workspace leasing company.
We’ll look in more detail at the retail kiosk alongside the office later, as it’s an unexpected design, and not yet finished.
