HP files early plans for 24-acre office, research site in east Vancouver

HP Inc. has submitted plans to the city of Vancouver to build approximately 235,000 square feet at its east Vancouver development.

The proposal is for an office and research and development facility occupying two buildings in the section of its property west of Northeast 184th Avenue and north of Southeast First Street.

The 24-acre project area would include one building with approximately 135,000 square feet of office space, as well as a second building with about 75,000 square feet of research and development space and an additional approximately 25,000 square feet of office space. The proposal includes 783 parking spaces.

The two buildings would be arranged around open gardens and plazas, “providing a secure environment for circulation, visitor access and employee rest and respite,” according to the pre-planning narrative.

The planning documents did not include information on the buildings’ heights but only stated that they will “vary in height, providing for active and pedestrian scale street fronts through façade articulation and the inviting appearance of the new buildings.”

HP’s east Vancouver development was agreed upon by the city of Vancouver in December 2019, which allowed for up to 98 acres of land in the Section 30 area of the city for company uses.

The first phase of the development was described as in the agreement as encompassing the first 330,000 square feet of office, research and development, and light industrial uses, and potential for occupant-supported small-scale retail, accessory space and related parking and site improvements.

“The contemplated site plan will bring high quality development to east Vancouver marrying planning and design to create an attractive office, research and development, as a central economic development use within Section 30,” read the company’s pre-planning narrative.

A representative from HP Inc. did not immediately return requests for comment.
