Hundreds of Deloitte employees moved into their new basecamp in the heart of the Granville Entertainment District
The bright and lofty building, formerly occupied by Tom Lee Music, underwent a major renovation before Deloitte moved in in the beginning of October.
Downtown Vancouver BIA staff hosted a welcome lunch on October 23rd, with hearty salads generously provided by one of Deloitte’s new Granville Street neighbours – Hungry Guys Kitchen.
We took the opportunity to ask Deloitte employees how they were liking the new location, and responses were overwhelmingly positive.
What would they like to see more of on Granville Street? Independent coffee shops, rooftop bars, healthy dining options, food trucks, and patios, according to our survey.
Deloitte will occupy the building into 2021 while their permanent home at Deloitte Summit at 410 West Georgia is being constructed. Rumour has it that two other companies have already expressed interest in taking over the building when Deloitte departs, indicating high demand for new office space on Granville street.
Businesses on Granville are enjoying the influx of new daytime customers that the new Deloitte office has brought. As Granville Street continues to evolve the DVBIA is encouraging more investment along the iconic corridor.
