Providing an affordable, energy efficient workspace for Vancouver artists
Vancouver is an increasingly expensive city to live and work in, with artist space being especially limited and costly. To help address supply and affordability in the region, we partnered with the City of Vancouver to create an ultra-low energy, Passive House building at 825 Pacific Street.
Our objective is two-fold: supply a sustainable arts‑dedicated space so that artists can continue to live, work and share in the community, and to contribute to Vancouver’s goal of becoming the greenest city in the world.
The seven-storey building, located next to our 39-storey residential development, The Pacific, recently won the Net-Zero Energy‑Ready Challenge award issued by the Government of British Columbia to create sustainable, purposeful buildings in the province.
