[1] A new mixed-use complex mingles modern office space with fashionable retail space by expanding the existing Pacific Center complex by 565,000ft2. The redevelopment project also features 290,000ft2 of AAA class office space and 45,000ft2 of space for fresh and new retailers. This project, located at 725 Granville Street, will be home to Microsoft, Sony Pictures Imageworks and Miller Thomson LLP.

One of the headliner retail spaces in this redevelopment project is the construction of the 230,000ft2 flagship Nordstrom Department Store. News regarding the development of Nordstrom in the pre-existing Sears space, however, has been released for quite some time. On the other hand, the major lease transactions for the two technology giants and the national law firm have been the most recent lease transaction. This exciting project will strengthen Pacific Center's position and reputation in the marketplace as Vancouver's paramount mixed-use complex.
