Paris Block and Paris Annex
53 WEST HASTINGS STREET, VANCOUVER
For over 60 years The Paris Block was home to Pierre Paris & Sons - a logging boot manufacturer and shoe retailer. Today, the Paris family company continues as Paris Orthotics on West 4th Avenue.
Located on West Hastings, just a few skips from the Woodward's building redevelopment, the Paris Block is a heritage conversion completed in 2008 with 29 lofts within a 100-year-old 5-storey brick building. The Paris Annex to be constructed right beside the Paris Block will be fused into one sharing hallways, stairs, elevator, and foyer. The Paris Annex, 100 years the junior to the Paris Block, will give life to 17 new, modern concrete pads. "It's a very interesting juxtaposition of old and new." - The Salient Group
In great position to take advantage of the Woodward's district. Steps from a new SFU campus, a Nester's, London Drugs and other retailers. Gastown is a great opportunity for students, urbanists and savvy visionaries to be a part of breathing new life into Vancouver's original city centre.
