Home to the Georgia Straight is a mixed-use office/retail building on the West Broadway corridor, The building was renovated to serve as offices and operations centre for Vancouver’s alternate press. Scope of work included full renovation of the existing medical/dental building into open concept, flexible office and production space. An upper floor was added to serve as exercise and social spaces, including open deck on both south and north sides. The original facade was retained to accommodate City of Vancouver heritage status, but updated for improved street appeal and sustainability through sun-screening (reduced operating costs), upgraded windows, (improved office and retail function), as well as mechanical and electrical systems (reduced operating cost and improved layout flexibility).
