We are part of the team creating Cohen Block in the heart of Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside and Gastown. The project aims to help bring renewal to the area through commerce and secured rental housing — harnessing the history and spirit of original Army & Navy store on the site.


The proposal delivers ~150 secured rental homes including below-market and homes at deep subsidy and approximately 246,800 sq ft of new leasable office, and retail spaces, as well as not-for-profit office space.

Cohen Block aims to restore and preserve the site’s historic heritage features and, guided by sustainable design principles, the project will use innovative materials, including mass timber, to improve energy performance and reduce overall carbon emissions.
