Amazon is expected to make a major announcement on its expanded presence in Vancouver this morning.
The multinational company will be taking over the redevelopment project of the old Canada Post building in downtown Vancouver for use as another office building to house its growing workforce in the city.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is one of the speakers slated to be a part of the announcement, which signifies the size and importance of the announcement.
The property’s owner is BC Investment Management Corporation, developer Bentall Kennedy, and architectural firm Musson Cattell Mackey Partnership. Previous plans to convert and expand the complex into a mixed-use building with retail, office, and residential have been cancelled. Instead, the new proposal is believed to be a mixture of commercial only – retail and office.
