Many Vancouverites have noticed the immense, barn-like structure on East 2nd Avenue at Quebec, with its red paint peeling and its windows broken. The Opsal Steel building is a fine reminder of False Creek South’s industrial heritage, and one of a very few surviving examples of Vancouver’s turn-of-the-century industrial architecture.
Today, The Opsal Steel building will enter its next chapter. Its heavy timbers and industrial artifacts will be taken apart, piece by piece, with each component numbered, documented, and reassembled as a part of the new Opsal site. For Bastion, this is a site worth preserving, and a story worth telling.
With its eclectic dining scene, community amenities, and green spaces, this growing neighbourhood defines the way we live in this city by the sea. Here, you’ll live adjacent to brand new amenities such as the Creekside Community Recreation Centre and Legacy Liquor Store, as well as a host of future conveniences. Whether you choose to follow the water to Granville Island and beyond, or bask in the sun while kayakers, dragon boaters, and seabirds play on the water — this is life on the banks of False Creek, Vancouver’s newest and greatest waterfront community.
Bastion chooses projects in part for the stories they have to tell. They build their communities to complete and enhance the character of a neighbourhood, and keep the story unfolding. This selective process has resulted in a diverse portfolio and a reputation for progressive design, exceptional construction quality, and a unique ability to integrate form, function, and environment.
