We provided market driven retail development & merchandising strategy for this historic adaptive use of Woodward’s department store located at the fringe of Gastown in a decaying perimeter area of Vancouver’s downtown core. Once we were armed with strategic market and economic facts & figures, strong retail anchors were secured. Retail and restaurant uses were instrumental in bringing the area back to life, to create a vibrant, safer and healthier environment that the area had historically known. This encouraged the attraction of both market and affordable multi-family housing, offices, university space, and other cultural uses as part of this mixed use, urban redevelopment project.
We examined the retail potential and merchandising strategy, including interest from retail and entertainment operators, for this extensive redevelopment of Vancouver's waterfront. Situated next to Gastown and the downtown core, the planned uses were an extension to the trade & convention centre, cruise terminal, seabus/skytrain station, and 1000 room Marriott hotel.
