CBRE is marketing a future, two tower office building on the False Creek Flats, for Low Tide Properties and PCI Group.
The site is adjacent to the former MEC head office building on Great Northern Way — a building that the outdoor equipment retailer hopes to sublease as it restructures.
The concept for the development includes two towers, seven and 11 storeys, with approximately 344,000 sq ft. of office space. The towers are connected by a large glazed atrium with extensive use of wood, possibly cross-laminated timber judging by the conceptual renderings.
Architecture is by MCMP Architects.

There will also be approximately 10,000 sq ft. of retail space with patio opportunities along Great Northern Way, overlooking China Creek Park across the street.
Leasing agency CBRE states in the 901 Great Northern Way brochure: “The development is in the early design stages and an anchor tenant can have the unique opportunity to be involved in the design process, allowing them to customize the building and create a one-of-a-kind solution.”
The building would also be a two-minute walk from the VCC-Clark SkyTrain station, the starting point for the SkyTrain extension west to Arbutus, and eventually, UBC.
The site is currently occupied by a two-storey warehouse building.
It’s also close to Lululemon’s future new Vancouver headquarters building, a dramatic new building which will accommodate up to 4,000 employees once fully occupied.
Completion could be as early as Spring 2022 should CBRE find an anchor tenant.
No formal rezoning or development application has been filed yet with the City of Vancouver.
