Diverse cultures come together to live work and play in this world-class community. Run on the seawall, catch the SkyTrain downtown, explore the local art galleries or cycle the greenway: From the False Creek Flats you can do it all.
At the corner of Great Northern Way and Thorton Avenue, CANVAS neighbours the future Emily Carr University of Art + Design and the Centre for Digital Media. Connected to the city by the Central Valley Greenway and the SkyTrain, this is the city’s new bright side.
ARTFUL ARCHITECTURE Designed by gBL Architects, this modern building is a contemporary take on the community focused building. Warm, approachable and located directly on the Central Valley Greenway, CANVAS will reflect the vibrancy of the nieghourhood and provide spaces for neighbours to meet and mingle.
CANVAS homes are designed to give you maximum freedom to express yourself: open concept studios, one and two bedrooms with linear kitchens, in two buildings connected by a green, open air courtyard.
BUILDING FEATURES • Modern design by gBL Architects featuring corrugated metal, splashes of colour and private roof top patios • Situated on the Great Northern Way Campus, home to the Centre for Digital media and future Emily Carr University of Art + Design • Walking distance to the waterfront and transit stations • Lush central courtyard divides the site which is located across from a future communal green space
