Marketing has begun for a commercial strata office and light industrial building slated to replace the former 3 Vets outdoor shop at Yukon and West 6th Avenue.
Chard Development is preparing to break ground on The Yukon, which will feature 48,000 square feet of office and light industrial space over four storeys.
The new building will include several outdoor terraces and extensive glazing to maximize views of the downtown skyline and Olympic Village. The architect is Mount Pleasant-based Proscenium Architecture + Interiors Inc., and leasing agents are Colliers International.
“The main reason we are excited about The Yukon project is the location,” says Byron Chard, principal and chief financial officer of Chard Development. “We’re still in the Mount Pleasant neighbourhood, but we are close to the active transit corridor of Cambie Street.”
Chard says the building offers a unique opportunity for businesses to own their space.
“Local businesses will have the opportunity to own an asset that they get to operate out of.”
The Yukon is the second strata office and light industrial development Chard has offered for sale in Mount Pleasant. It’s also kitty corner from Cressey’s 10-storey proposal on the former site of Craftsman Collision.
