We’re getting a first look at the South Granville subway station coming in 2025 to West Broadway and Granville.
The new station will be incorporated into a new office development on the northeast corner of the intersection, currently occupied by an office building with a RBC branch on the ground floor.
The new office building, developed by PCI Group and designed by Musson Cattell Mackey Partnership, will be five storeys, with the option to add a tower in the future. It will contain 67,200 sq. ft of office space.
There are five levels of underground parking — due to plans for a tower on the site in the future. Ground floor retail will include a new location for the RBC branch, as well as a retail unit on West Broadway.
Construction on the extension of the Millennium Line from VCC-Clark west to Arbutus is expected to begin next year, with completion in 2025.
The $2.83-billion project will enable commuters to get from VCC-Clark to Arbutus in 11 minutes.
The route is the busiest in all of Canada and the U.S., with over 100,000 transit trips daily. The Broadway Corridor is the second-largest employment centre in B.C., after Downtown Vancouver.
A community project office opened in late September at 1212 West Broadway. More information is available at engage.gov.bc.ca/broadwaysubway
