From the moment I heard about the proposed Woodwards development, I was inspired. Here was a true urban ideal, a place where diverse and dynamic communities could come together and create their own unique neighbourhood, unlike anything else in Vancouver. This development was a bold and forward-looking idea, encompassing the ideals of sustainable design and eloquent architectural expression.
There was another reason I was initially attracted to Woodwards and it had nothing to do with looking forward. Some of my earliest and fondest memories of Vancouver are linked to the old department store. As an immigrant, Woodwards gave me my first taste of a Canadian Christmas. I remember wandering around the old department store as a starry-eyed child, taking in the colourful displays with my grandfather. The big W still evokes this nostalgia in me.
As an owner and resident of Woodwards, I am in the perfect position to help you become a part of this exciting, stylish and groundbreaking community. I look forward to helping you own a piece of history and the future.

Built in 1903, the Woodwards building existed as a department store serving the community for 90 years. Over those years, it had been built on to and altered. Today it has gone through it's final phase of alteration. Having torn down all the additions leaving only the oldest part of the Woodwards building comprised of heavy timber construction from old growth forests available from the area at the turn of the century, it now stands as one of Vancouvers greatest residential buildings.
It's your turn to be a part of Vancouver's rich heritage.
