MOVE IN Q4 2021

IS YOUR BUSINESS READY TO EVOLVE?

Premium Creative Industrial and Office Strata property ownership is a proven strategy for business success. But how can Vancouver businesses own industrial and office space when land is so limited in supply?

The answer is vertical. An idea that helped define cities like New York, Toronto and early Vancouver at the turn of the 20th century is now re-imagined for this city’s vibrant future.

Evolution Block stacks up all the advantages of commercial real estate ownership in a Class A location situated between downtown Vancouver and the cultural hub of Commercial Drive.

It’s a business ownership opportunity in a world-class market where strata-titled creative industrial and office space is increasingly rare.

Four stories of new construction will offer a total of 70,000 sf of space, which includes 29,000 sf of AAA Class general offices – all available for purchase.

Evolution Block, located in the heart of False Creek Flats at 1055 Vernon Drive, takes the idea of industrial density and instills contemporary business world dynamics.

HISTORY
RE-IMAGINED

Vertical industrial development is not a new concept. PC Urban is looking to the past to redefine the future of creative industrial space.

Vancouver’s oldest industrial site, the British Columbia Sugar Refining Company, located on Powell Street, provides a classic and successful example of stacked industrial architecture. Built in 1903, the building solidified the success of stacked industrial in Vancouver.

REDEFINING INDUSTRIAL

Experience the modernization of industrial space at Evolution Block where this new vibrant development offers business owners control of their own destiny. The supply of industrial opportunities remains at historic lows while increasing costs of leasing continues to drive businesses out of Vancouver. Invest in your business’s future and solidify its presence by securing modern industrial space in the heart of Vancouver. Evolution Block provides businesses the stability they require to thrive and grow while offering functionality and practicality.

Control your own destiny and own your industrial space in this forward-thinking opportunity that is Evolution Block.
