Harbour Centre’s redevelopment unveiled

This week, Harbour Centre Complex Limited is marking the official opening of its lower level and food court after a multi-million dollar redevelopment. The extensive interior upgrades began last spring and focused on creating a brighter, more welcoming space through higher ceilings, open-concept lounge spaces, and a fresh colour palette.

The expanded eating and common area occupies approximately 17,500 square feet and features seating for more than 600 patrons. “There’s a daytime population of 130,000 within one kilometer of Harbour Centre. We saw an opportunity to create a more contemporary and inviting atmosphere to better serve existing customers and attract new patrons to the Centre,” says Richard Lui, Harbour Centre Complex general manager. The redevelopment was designed by SSDG Interiors Inc. in conjunction with project architects, DA Architects + Planners.

Harbour Centre is home to a 28-story office tower, a nine-story office building with historic origins, Simon Fraser University Downtown Campus, The Vancouver Lookout Observation Deck, Top of Vancouver Revolving Restaurant, and two levels of shops and services. The building’s exterior façade is also currently undergoing improvements that are scheduled for completion in late spring that include wider entryways, new canopies, and improved signage.
