Getting Urban Industrial Right - Archetype Breaks Ground
Hungerford Properties and QuadReal Property Group are today launching sales in a new, mixed-use development at the corner of Main and 1st Avenue that offers a model for future developments in Vancouver and across North America. The new development, Archetype, is the first to combine strata office, industrial and residential rental on one site, fulfilling the City of Vancouver’s vision for the False Creek Flats as a hub for job space, flexible housing, sustainability, arts and culture. This is a prototype development for the city, as it combines purpose-built rental and commercial for the first time in the area, which has historically been a centre for heavy industry.
