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.
