1355 Parker Street is located in the heart of East Vancouver’s rapidly transitioning Strathcona industrial district. This highly desirable location is in the direct line of redevelopment in the exciting and vibrant district. With the imminent removal of both the Georgia and Dunsmuir viaducts, as well as the new Providence Health Care St. Paul’s hospital, the downtown core is moving into the Strathcona area.
The development of the Great Northern Way Campus on the south end of the False Creek Flats, which will be the future home of the Emily Carr University and the new Centre for Digital Media, will become a hub for the city’s digital and creative sectors, attracting young professionals to the area and creating a new market for local businesses.
The City of Vancouver would like to see several different “hubs” in this region including an innovation hub, artist hub, recycling hub, and technology hub, all supporting the City’s objectives of job creation with an emphasis on “green jobs”.
