The Vancouver Innovation Center (the “VIC”) is a former Hewlett Packard campus developed in the late 1980s and early 1990s. The 179-acre campus is home to a 700,000-square-foot suite of office, flex, and manufacturing space. In the 1990s, the campus housed more than 3,000 workers and was designed with amenities including fully functional kitchens, a gym, an interior courtyard basketball court, volleyball courts, and softball fields. New Blueprint Partners and Rabina acquired the VIC in October 2020.
The VIC was originally built on farmland, within a sparsely populated area of East Vancouver. Over the 30 years since its creation, the VIC saw its surroundings rapidly built up with retail and residential development. These changes mean the site, which was originally zoned for industrial development, was an incongruous and under-utilized island disconnected from its surrounding community.
The answer is a new vision for the VIC, ultimately transforming the 179 acres of industrial land into a new, sustainable, 20-minute mixed-use neighborhood. The full buildout is anticipated to provide 5,000-6,000 commercial jobs and upwards of 1,200 new housing units while preserving 14.6 acres of existing forested area, providing 3x the required open space, and creating a new downtown spine with restaurants, public open spaces, and residential living.
