GardenWorks to be Replaced by 55-Unit Mixed-Use Condo
Lotus Capital and Omicron have proposed to redevelop the GardenWorks property at West 3rd Street and Bewicke Avenue into a 6-storey, stratified condominium building with ground-oriented retail space and a 1,750-sq-ft daycare. The new site will feature 6,000 sq ft of commercial retail units and 55 new homes, ranging from one to three bedrooms.
Conveniently, this Marine Drive location is within steps of services such as a dentist, an animal hospital, and a physiotherapist. Grocery shopping is a breeze with Choices Markets, Save-On Foods, Thrifty Foods, and Walmart nearby, or take care of your household and fashion needs at Capilano Mall. You’ll also be next to multiple bus routes that make it easy to visit Londsdale Quay and Shipyards, or commute to downtown Vancouver.
