A piece of Hollywood is coming to downtown Vancouver. Sony Pictures Imageworks will be one of the tenants for Pacific Centre's 725 Granville Street redevelopment project.
Sony will lease the entire 5th floor, which includes 71,500 square feet of office space.
The location has four levels of office space above Nordstrom’s future Canadian flagship location.
Nordstrom will have 230,000 square feet on three floors below the office space.
A new 44,000 square foot multi-tenant retail space will be built on the lower mall level. Vancouver architect James K.M. Cheng designed the project.
Commercial real estate developer Cadillac Fairview Corporation Limited is targeting LEED Gold Certification for the project under the LEED: Core & Shell Program.
Construction is well underway on the site.
The office space is expected to open in early 2015.
New retail stores on the lower level are expected to open in Spring 2015. Nordstrom is expected to open in fall 2015.
The announcement comes just weeks after confirmation that Microsoft will lease the 6th and 7th floors of the building.
In January of this year, it was announced that law firm Miller Thomson will move into 48,000 square feet on the 4th floor.
The new office space is part of the redevelopment of the former Eatons/Sears building.
The top four levels of the building are being converted to 290,000 square feet of AAA class office. Each floor has 17-foot ceilings, slab to slab, and offers 72,500 square foot floor plates, a unique feature in the downtown core.
