Vancouver Sun, Evan Duggan, November 24, 2015
With the holiday shopping season ratcheting up, two large retail developments in Metro Vancouver are in the process of opening, with the developers touting the convenience of nearby public transit as a lure for shoppers.
Metro Vancouver’s retail sector is transforming, with retailers at Marine Gateway in Vancouver and Station Square in Burnaby opening new shops at dense, mixed-use projects located at transit hubs, with immediate connections to the SkyTrain, Canada Line and bus networks.
With retail openings taking place now through early 2016, Marine Gateway will include shops, a pub, offices, a fitness facility and an 11-screen Cineplex Theatre complex. The development, located at the Canada Line’s Marine Drive station near the South Vancouver Bus Loop, also includes 415 condominium and 46 rental units.
