Located within the Fairview Neighbourhood immediately to the south of Downtown Vancouver,the site is located on the Northeast corner of West Broadway and Hemlock Street. This area was once a bustling industrial waterfront area, but has been transformed into a thriving community overlooking the sparkling waters of False Creek and the
downtown skyline beyond. The centerpiece of this flourishing neighbourhood is Granville Island, with its mix of shopping, theatre, industry, education and more. Amenities include numerous schools, parks and recreation centres – rendering the area attractive to both singles and families alike. It is also superbly serviced by transit – with both East-West and North-South bus routes providing easy accessibility.
The Broadway Corridor has also been rumoured to be the subject of the UBC Line Rapid Transit Study being carried out by Translink and the Province in consultation with the City of Vancouver and other partner organizations. The study is evaluating rapid transit options for the Broadway Corridor between Commercial Drive and UBC, which would drastically improve the site's access via public transit.
