When we launched Main Alley, we were certain that this neighbourhood was heading in a very positive direction. 18 months later, the world has figured it out as well. The campus has been incredibly successful, with our first two buildings leased. M4 at Main Alley is the next phase of the campus, following our M1 renovation and the M2 building.
Main Alley has already been an incredible success, with the first two buildings M1 and M2 fully leased. Our strong overall vision for the campus combined with the following core aspects were the key to the project’s success.
A plan for Flexible Growth, Over Time
We designed our campus to accommodate future buildings and flexible uses for spaces including co-working options. By completing the campus over multiple phases, there will be room to adjust designs for future buildings to accommodate changing needs.
Walkable and Transit Oriented
Main Alley is in the only area in town with this kind of walkability. On the edge of Olympic Village and Main Street, the site is within 10 minutes of two existing Skytrain lines and the future Millennium Broadway line, connecting it to UBC, East Vancouver and Downtown.
A Beautiful Location
The campus is surrounded by parksand greenspace, tree-lined streets and fine grain shops. Its elevated location midway up the slope of Main Street will provide tenants and users of the buildings with panoramic views of Downtown Vancouver and the Northshore Mountains.
A Community with Character
Mount Pleasant is at the centre ofthe city and close to downtown, yet remains its own distinct community with its own unique character, balancing family-oriented residential with an active cultural environment and some of the city’s most exciting new dining concepts.
A Strong Existing Creative Economy
Mount Pleasant is home to new and established creative economy leaders including Rogers, Hootsuite, Saje Natural Wellness, MEC, DHX Media, Native Shoes, Oak + Fort, as well as many other technology firms, film, recording and design studios and traditional manufacturers.
Filling in of the Neighbourhood Offering
Offering residential, entertainment, dining/casual hang-out options, comprehensive amenities, and a place where people want to be 7 days a week.
